To think I thought Heath Ledger was terrifying in Batman: Dark Knight. If you have a strong stomach, check out Something Bad Is Going To Happen Here - a marketing site for a book being published by Doubleday called The Gargoyle.
There's a famous (in our family, anyway) story of me burning my foot on a stove when I was a kid. My parents had left us with a babysitter who decided late one night (long after what should have been bedtime) that she wanted some tea. After heating her water she was looking for the tea or sugar or something, and I very helpfully jumped up on the counter to find it for her...stepping right on the heating element in the process. Ouch. Rumor has it I screamed all night long.
