Overnight Open Thread (Mætenloch)

Welcome to the ONT my droogies.

The only Known Video of Anne Frank

Taken in July 1941 when she was 12 years old. A year later she would start her diary and less than 3 years later she would die at the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp.


Top 25 Cult Movies (since 1983)
I consider myself a connoisseur of cult movies, but still have only seen about 2/3 of these. I saw Akira years ago - the animation was good but the story didn't make any sense. Part of this is from trying to condense an entire comic series into a movie, but not explaining stuff seems to be typical of a lot of Japanese anime. Plus They Live should really be more appreciated.

Trivia - Shephard Fairey (of Obama "HOPE" poster fame) got they idea for his "OBEY" posters from 'They Live'.
More Trivia - Angelique Pettyjohn, recipient of the Kirk Kiss, was also in Repo Man.

The Deepest Step Well in the World
It was built in India in the 9th century and is 100 feet deep. As one commenter noted, it looks like what you would get if M.C. Escher had been an architect. And it's still functional today.
