In 1976, the production crew of the Six Million Dollar Man had something of an unpleasant surprise. Whilst filming the episode the Carnival of Spies, one of the prop guys attempted to move what he assumed as a dummy hanging from a gallows in the Pike amusement park in Long Beach, California.

The arm fell off.

It was not a dummy.

Turns out that it was in fact the mummified corpse of outlaw Elmer McCurdy, who died in a shoot out in 1911 following a crime which newspapers at the time called “one of the smallest in the smallest in the history of train robbery“. Netting only $46, two demijohns of whiskey, an automatic revolver, a coat and the train conductor’s watch, this is opposed to the $400,000 he and his gang thought would be on the time at the train.

As was the style at the time, McCurdy’s body was put on display at a nearby funeral home, as was the style at the time. The body was then claimed by a man who said he was Elmer’s brother… but he most likely wasn’t as the body began circulating the sideshow circuit as an attraction shortly aftewards.

After a tour around the US which included being used as a prop in the 1967 film She Freak, Elmer, now assumed to be a “gruesome“ waxwork that wasn’t realistic enough for display, was eventually sold to part-owner of the Pike,  Ed Liersch, who had the body hung in the Laff in the Dark funhouse exhibition.

The coroner would later conclude that the body was indeed both real and that of Elmer, having being mummified by a combination of the original undertaker’s arsenic-based embalming method, a coating of wax, and layers of phosphorus paint.

In 1977, Elmber was buried at the Summit View Cemetery in Guthrie, Oklahoma. His coffin was coated in a two-foot-thick layer of concrete to prevent further attempts at grave-robbery.

In 1978, the Jonah Hex story The Last Bounty Hunter evokes the fate of McCurdy by DC’s Western antihero getting gunned down, dressed in a parody cowboy outfit and put on display for years afterwards.

In a later story, Hex ends up being an exhibit in Booster Gold’s restaurant… which is horrifying. Not least due to the timetravelling superhero eventually befriending Hex in later stories.

——————————

Hex-  Nathan West.
Height: 5 ft 1 in.
Age: 15

The Love Child of Kid Flash and Jinx-He is a constant reminder that redemption of evil is possible. His mother being an ex-villain gives him lots of insights on how the criminal mind works. He may look like his mother, but he mostly acts like his father. He is fairly confident and has a bright disposition and positive outlook on life. His superpowers include flashes of light and beams of energy like his mother, but sometimes he can run really fast like his father in very short bursts. He cannot sustain that running skill for very long. He can transform into flashes of light if he runs really fast. His favorite color is pink and will always tell you that it is a manly color.

Agent- Samson Stone.
Height: 6 ft 0 in.
Age: 16

Samson is an adopted son to Cyborg. Cyborg could not have children, but decided to adopt Samson after deeply connecting with him after a mission. Samson is very level-headed and mellow. He is very much like a gentle giant. He enjoys technology and music and frequently has earbuds in his ears. He is fully human-but wears a tech suit his Father and him have built. His arms have the classic Sonic canon that cyborg wields-But also can push out blades from the side for slashing. His censor is built into his visor-He can read heat signatures and pull up GPS in front of his eyes. Samson has a habit of saying “booyah!” He enjoys children and loves to play videogames. He can fly with jets and he builds robots in his spare time.

Starshine- Kara Grayson.
Height: 5 ft 6 in.
Age: 19

The team leader, she has a level-head and speaks eloquently. Inheriting her father’s leadership skills, and her mother’s cheerful disposition, Starshine is the most compassionate of the group. Starshine makes hard decisions at times, which her teammates respect her for. She has super agility and has all the powers her mother had before her-and she absolutely loves visits home to planet Tamaran. She talks like a normal, average earth teen, unlike her mother, and is the only other person besides Starfire to see her father’s face without his mask. She is good at keeping secrets and her teammates often confide in her.

Beastia- Rora Logan.
Height: 5 ft. 3 in.
Age: 17

The first child to Beastboy and Raven, Beastia had a dramatic first encounter in the world. She takes after her father the most, and uses her powers to shapeshift into shadows and animals alike, sometimes morphing into a combination of the two. She can shadow jump from shadow to shadow and phase through objects. She doesn’t have much skill in telekinesis like her mother or brother, nor can she fly unless she is transformed into an animal that can achieve flight. Beastia has minor healing abilities and some foresight into the future. She is mostly withdrawn, and is very hard on herself unfortunately. She enjoys being support, and doesn’t like the limelight or being a leader. She deeply loves her family.

Entity- Galen Logan.
Height: 5 ft. 0 in.
Age: 15

Entity is the second child born to Beastboy and Raven, and is much more powerful than his older sister. He can shapeshift, but he chooses to mostly use magic. He does not have healing abilities, but can fly and teleport and shadow jump. However, his morphing abilities do not stop there. He can immitate voices and people and can even transform into different people with a combination of magic and his shapeshifting for a short amount of time. He is very strong but weak to peer pressure and temptation. He is the most emotional of the group and can have a hot head. He enjoys videogames and plays them often with Agent. He doesn’t understand sarcasm and it goes right over his head. Entity likes to improve his magic and will get stronger by any means…

What I find really interesting is to try and mix it up, to push myself and try different things. I don’t want to stay in my comfort zone. I want to take risks and keep myself scared - Michael Fassbender

I need a crossover in which Team Flash, Legends, and Lisa Snart work together. Or at least try to do it.

Leonard all the time flirting with Barry, but is often distracted, because “GET AWAY FROM MY SISTER, SARA!”

Mick and Caitlin discusses their combat achievements in recent time and complain of their fate. “You think you was bad? This is me was bad. THIS MONSTER WAS FEEDING ME BURGERS ALL THE DAMN TIME.”

Cisco, Jax and Ray having fun together, inventing all sorts of things and “Fucking relationships, man!”So true, man.”

Kendra and Iris are often left alone, drinks coffee and discusses their crises in relations, speaks on the topic of fate and freedom of choice. 

Carter tries unsuccessfully paying attention Kendra on herself and eat her face. All laugh at him.

Martin looks at a photo of Clarissa and sighs. All that romance on the ship causes him often to ask Gideon about his wife.

Rip like ???????? What are you doing? My family is in danger! Whole world is in danger! We have no time for these pink snot!

But then Sara tells all about Jonah and of course the Team Flash wants to see the Time Mom and the Wild West. Barry decides this question. Rip wants to die.

the year of hexterah’s house of hotties: January 15th
Kyle Hyde (video game - Kyle Hyde Saga)

Kyle Hyde is the hottest thing to appear as if it jumped out of an old A-ha video. Besides Hotel Dusk being an awesome game and visual novel, Kyle is a great protagonist. Why? Because he’s not a very sociable person but due to his job he has to be. There’s a lot of awkward pauses and head shakes and Kyle acting kind of like a tool to various people in the first game. I’m going to be playing the second game soon (Thank you again, dci-agent-dtle! <3) so we’ll see if his sighs and impatient head tilts continue!

(This kid’s a loon.) This isn’t the place to be working on a puzzle. Go to your room or the car or a freeway or something.”


OH, KYLE.

Hex-Your-Ex (or generally unpleasant people)

Originally posted by thewaritneverends

This is just a little hex I cooked up for people who don’t necessarily warrant full-fledged curses, but definitely need a heavy kick in the rear. 


What you’ll need:

  • An oil of choice (use cheap stuff for this, like canola or vegetable oil)
  • Cayenne pepper, powdered
  • Dirt or grime. I took scum off the bottom of the bucket I mopped the floors with and mixed that with dirt. Vacuum dust works as well (just be careful not to inhale it as you’re dumping it out). You should gather at least a handful of whatever material you choose, but avoid things that have come in contact with chemicals as you will be casting the mixture outside.
  • Something to mix it in/on (bowl, plate, tupperware, etc.) Don’t worry about it having a lid, the final mixture won’t need to be stored. 
  • A knife or something to cut with.

Put dry ingredients in first, and add just enough oil to dampen it into a paste. When pinched it should hold its shape.

Shape the paste to resemble a body. Nothing fancy, as long as it has a head and four limbs you’re good to go. 

First you’re going to cut off one leg from the figure, while reciting “I take away your sure footing. You shall begin to doubt.”(Self explanatory, they might second guess how just their behavior was. Best case scenario, they make amends and the hex wears off. If not, the hex only gets worse from here)

Now the next foot: “I take away your stability. No one else shall support your deeds.” (Also self explanatory, people will start calling them out on their asshole-ish ways.)

Cutting of one arm: “I take away your comforts. The world shall revolt against you.” (This can be in the form of minor accidents, horrible luck, lateness, etc. My hex manifested this in the form of a terrible bout of acne.)

Cutting of the other: “I take away your will. Your efforts shall fail.” ( Visualize job interviews falling through, food overcooking or burning, dates standing them up or never texting back.)

Finally, cutting off the head: “I take away your power. You shall not harm again.”

Gather up the six pieces, taking them outside. Cast one limb north, one south, one east, one west–this way the hex will work no matter where they go. Dispose of the other two pieces how you see fit. You can spit on them and toss them in the trash, crush them under your shoe, bury them, flush them, etc, as long as you never see them again. 

And so it is.
