i read a book about Jack the Ripper and they had a reference to her. It's interesting in a massicistic, twisted way.

I agree, in a way Bathory's motive was more twisted than jacks still i find most accounts of serial killers very interesting :)

It is more twisted in some ways...but Jack is eerie too, considering they never caught who it was, and if they were to go back now, imagine the publicity of his decendents...that would be so shocking for the families!! wow...

but yes it is very interesting really, like wondering how their mind works, what would make them do something like that and how they did it. it's fascinating. sorry..I'm babbling. my apologies.

especially if the decedents are people of a high position in society, back then you would have had to be of a certain class to be educated enough to become a doctor. it's very interesting considering these cases are committed by people of a certain intelligence.

don't worry i enjoy such conversations :)

i know, it makes you wonder why they would do something as low as that when they have that intelligence to be something great. like Hannibal Lector. He was very very smart, but because the Nazi's ate his younger sister, he did too to survive, it just mad him snap. It's shocking.

me too :D

sometimes i wonder (only a passing thought) maybe the human brain isn't capable to be used to it's full potential, maybe man cannot take certain levels of intelligence and it causes those people to snap and at the same time see the ones around them as lesser beings, unworthy to live and incapable of understanding. ... just a thought, i'm not necessary right in this, tell me what you think about it :)

that is agod thought...hmm...makes my head hurt even worse. Very first day of high school...

it makes you wonder the very thing that made them snap. Like if it was long term or a minor thing that no one ever heard about in history that just made them go BOOM

hope your first day went well, i doubt if it was minor unless it lead to a love for kill, i think minor things are a valid motive for a single murder but when you have time period of months or years in between murders i doubt it, then again it's their interpretation as to what is minor.

Wow. I really like the way you did this one. Just the way her dress also blends in with the background makes her seem even more mysterious and dark.
