October 18th 1679: Ann Putnam Jr. born

On this day in 1679 Ann Putnam Jr. was born to parents Thomas Putnam and Ann Carr in Salem Village, Massachusetts. 13 years later, Ann Putnam Jr. imprinted her mark on history by becoming one of the chief accusers during the Salem witch trial crisis of 1692. Putnam, along with Betty Parris, Mary Walcott and Abigail Williams, were the most prominent of the ‘afflicted girls’ who claimed they were being tortured by witches. The girls accused many local people of being witches, and in the ensuing panic twenty people were executed for witchcraft. It has been suggested that Putnam’s parents may have told her who to accuse in order to resolve personal vendettas. In 1706, Ann Putnam apologised to her local community for her role in the trials.

"it was a great delusion of Satan that deceived me in that sad time, whereby I justly fear I have been instrumental, with others, though ignorantly and unwittingly, to bring upon myself and this land the guilt of innocent blood

So apparently there’s a sound that is 36 or so octaves below middle c that is so low that it kills you. The sound waves literally kill you. And this sound is only found in dark matter (for what we know). This is so cool

"When you dress like that it’s like putting a steak in front of a dog; what do you expect?"
Peanut butter is basically my dog’s favorite thing in the world.
You know why she’s not even touching it?
I said “no.”
