16 Swedish Brands You Can Shop Online

Land of the design geniuses.


Just an FYI: Although a lot of these brands ship to the United States, we've mentioned U.S.-based retailers where possible. When you have goods imported to the States, they can be subject to local customs/taxes, which might not show up on your original bill. These costs can be hard to predict, and can be $$$, so just keep that in mind when ordering directly from the brand!

The 9 Most Haunted Websites On The Internet

Dare you read the bone-chilling tales of the SPOOKIEST websites in the world?


TMZ


TMZ


TMZ is said to be haunted by the restless spirit of a former writer who died tragically on the day she was due to be married. Some visitors to the website have reported seeing a sad-eyed spectre, which roams across a random popular article once a day at the witching hour (PST). Others have reported strange chills, and hearing a quiet weeping sound.


Tom Phillips/BuzzFeed


The Guardian


The Guardian


The Guardian's Life and Style section is sporadically haunted by a spectre. Rumoured to be a grumpy sub-editor in a former life, it roams the comment section calling out faddy articles, and mis-spelled words.


Ailbhe Malone/BuzzFeed


BBC News


BBC News


The BBC News website is haunted by the ghost of a Roundhead soldier from the English Civil War. Many visitors have reported hearing the sound of marching footsteps, the rattle of weapons, and seeing a helmeted figure keeping up his lonely patrol of the homepage centuries after the war ended. Others have reported strange chills, and hearing a quiet weeping sound.


Tom Phillips/BuzzFeed


The Toast


The Toast


The Toast is haunted by the spirit of a minor Victorian novelist. Hester Spookworthy is a benign presence. She is a listed contributor, and occasionally suggests in editorial meetings that she would like to change the name of the site to 'The Ghost'. On each occasion she is politely rebuffed.

The 18 Most Haunted Places In Australia That You Can Actually Visit

“Who run the world? GHOULS.”


Monte Cristo Homestead in Junee, New South Wales.


Monte Cristo Homestead in Junee, New South Wales.


The history: A boy burned alive in the stables, a small girl was “pushed” out of a maid’s arms and down the stairs by a mysterious unseen force, and most recently in 1961, the gardener was shot by a young man who was obsessed with the film Psycho.


How it's haunted: Guests often report seeing strange lights, feeling strange presences, and many who choose to stay overnight report seeing former lady of the house Mrs. Crawley.

Following the new story, Rowling reveals her personal thoughts on the character and that the malicious pink-loving witch was actually based on a real person that she knew. Although she made sure she didn't reveal who that person actually was.


In the new musings, she writes:



Once, long ago, I took instruction in a certain skill or subject (I am being vague as vague can be, for reasons that are about to become obvious), and in doing so, came into contact with a teacher or instructor whom I disliked intensely on sight.


The woman in question returned my antipathy with interest. Why we took against each other so instantly, heartily and (on my side, at least) irrationally, I honestly cannot say.
