      While my earlier comment of the podcast being the highlight of my day remains true- Man, after listening to the Super Scary Stuff section, I think that I’ll be skipping dinner tonight….

  2. bkrisanda says:

    is anyone else waiting to see if the fact that impaler is spelled imapler intentionally?

    It was also said that while he was dining with a guess the guess complained about the smell of the bodies and Vlad had his nose cut off. Vlad was also known for dipping his bread in the blood of his victims, on one story said he took a family’s children then to invite the parents to dinner and then feed the children to the parents. Now I’m not a historian but these are things I’ve heard in different documentaries.

    Regarding your Idiots Of The Internet segment: FYI, kike is a slur against Jews, not Germans. It warms my heart a bit that you apparently didn’t know this.

    Love the suck. Keep it up!

    Crazy episode, definitely an evil dude, and I’m definitely glad to be existing in a year that doesn’t start with 14xx. Also, is it just me but I don’t see the amazon timesuck button anywhere?

    Keep up the suck Dan!

    I’m Serb. I was told by my Serb grandfather that the wooden stake myth comes from a Serb practice of staking someone suspected of becoming a vampire through the heart or midsection to “pin” them down to the earth for eternity – so they don’t leave their coffin. It is a real practice. And it comes from a scientific oddity that there is a genetic disorder prevelant in that region where some people do not get rigamortis and are also prone to cadaveric spasms.
