'Ello! My name is Joseph, I'm 20, I love listening to blink-182 and I'm a really big nerd who is majoring in English and Philosophy. Welcome To Night Vale is probably one of my favorite things on the internet and I feel that more people should listen to it; I think they'd be surprised by how quickly it grows on them. When I'm not watching Doctor Who, have my nose in a Brian Greene book or spreading the word about Spinoza's works, I'm either speed running Dark Souls, playing Legend of Zelda, beating the Elite Four for the hundredth time, level grinding in Final Fantasy or playing Resident Evil. I post what ever catches my eye, but mainly about video games and Doctor Who. Feel free to ask me anything :)
My favorite thing is this idea that they somehow are able to silently stalk people despite being almost 100-foot tall skeletons, because no one looks up.
Gashadokuro aka the starving skeletons are the reanimated and combined bones of the victims of starvation. Up to a hundred feet tall, they are heralded by the sound of bells ringing in the ears of their victims. They reach down from above to capture people and bit their heads off. The Gashadokuro haunt the darkness after midnight.
Japanese folklore has a ton of giant skeletons but the Gashadokuro is the coolest + creepiest
The important thing is that you all keep searching for your own answers. I’ll tell you one thing about the universe, though. The universe is a pretty big place. It’s bigger than anything anyone has ever dreamed of before. So if it’s just us… seems like an awful waste of space. Right?
