About the curses
« on: August 10, 2015, 04:20:56 AM »

Curses

  It's a thread about the curses. (In this sense: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Curse)
 Well, as you already know probably, my major is 'philosophy' (and 'philosophical anthropology', concretely). We had to learn and explore this matter too, because it's a part of the human culture and it's related to culturology, sociology, history, philosophy, religion, ethology, psychology, folklore studies, etc.
 I don't want to talk about believing in curses. It's not about believe or not. It's just a matter for exploration, which may be very fruitful and we may learn a lot from it (if we can make the right conclusions). I feel sort of happy about this knowledge of mine. :) I learned about it probably from 1989.
 Here I'd like to start this thread with an interesting curse:

book curse

I bet many of you never knew about this book curse.
Quote
A book curse was the most widely employed and effective method of discouraging the thievery of manuscripts during the medieval period. The use of book curses dates back much further, to pre-Christian times, when the wrath of gods was invoked to protect books and scrolls.

A fan of science, philosophy and so on. :)

Busby's stoop chair

Busby's stoop chair

  I'd like to share about the Busby's stoop chair. I learned about it tonight and I think it's a sort of impressive story:
Quote
The Busby's stoop chair or the Dead Man's Chair is an allegedly haunted oak chair that was cursed by the murderer Thomas Busby before his execution by hanging in North Yorkshire, United Kingdom.

Crime and curse
Busby was arrested, tried and condemned to death after he murdered his father-in-law Daniel Auty in 1702. The execution's site was said to be haunted by Busby's ghost.

Background
Busby was gibbeted at Sandhutton crossroads, beside an inn.

Deaths
1970s some fatal accidents were linked with the chair. In 1972 the chair was ultimately hung from the ceiling of Thirsk Museum to prevent occupancy, even by maintenance.

Cultural references

In Episode 26 of Hetalia: Axis Powers, England monologues to himself that he will get revenge on America using "Busby's Chair". However, Russia sits in the chair instead, causing it to explode in a red aura.
