I’m Losing My Mind(s)!

03 Dec

File this one in the “News of the Weird” department.

From The Raw Story, “The University of Texas at Austin has lost about 100 brains stored in jars of formaldehyde.”

The brains had been transferred to the university almost 30 years ago from a state hospital and were stored in the basement. One of the missing brains may have been that of Charles Whitman, the man responsible for the bell tower shootings on the campus back in 1966. Theories of what happened to the brains include students breaking in and stealing them to use as decorations for their dorm rooms.

However I think we gamers know something far more sinister must be at work here. In the United States a State Hospital is usually an asylum for incarcerating mental patients accused of crimes and found not guilty by reason of insanity. This includes violent crimes, such as those of Charles Whitman. Now 100 brains from such an institution have gone missing.

Sometimes the adventures write themselves.


Or maybe they just have a hungry Mind Flayer living in the university’s steam tunnels.

These can be especially dangerous if they have tenure.

    Well, I didn’t watch that video all the way through, and I didn’t realize it included photos of victims, so now I regret posting it. Great song though. This would be a better video to link.
    Sorry about that!

      No worries! I went ahead and deleted the first post.
