That someone I had no issue with could make up lies about me to my roommate, just so that my boyfriend could get wind of it and second guess our relationship.

The relationship that took me 2,000 miles away from home.

The relationship I would give, and have given almost everything for.

And yet he can still be invited back into a house where I pay bills, where I have made it clear I don’t want him.

Yet the minute I try to take in two harmless animals, as a favor to a friend for a few weeks,

Everyone has a problem with it.

Maybe everyone should help clean. Mop. Sweep. Take out the trash.

Maybe everyone should be considerate of my feelings, too.

Oh wait, never mind.

What did I ever matter to anyone, anyways.

Girls pose by a jail that recalls the witch trials of 1692 in Salem, Massachusetts. Photo taken in 1945.

I recently learned that the water in Salem was contaminated with the fungus from which LSD is derived and a legitimate theory for the whole thing is that everyone in the town was tripping balls 

This might be the greatest thing ive ever seen on the internet

We did a whole massive thing on this in history. I believe the fungus in question is called Ergot and it’s terrifying. It makes your muscles spasm so when they had seizures that was the reason, not because they were possessed. One woman had to be strapped to her bed, she was seizing so bad. And, like ‘theybuildbuildings’ said, it had the same effects as LSD; as soon as you touch it, let alone consume it, it messes with your entire system. The worst thing is, you practically always had a bad trip. Many complained about bugs crawling under their skin or monsters emerging from the shadows to scratch and bite at them until they were screaming. It was a horrendous thing and the worst part is, Ergot is still around. It grows on crops and, if your wheat isn’t properly treated, it can be eaten and you’ll most likely experience the same as the women of Salem. 

god i love history

This is hella cool and almost correct… 
The effects on the people of Salem were probably from consuming bread with the fungus in it, not from contaminated water. And apparently rye is way more commonly affected than wheat. In fact, often the members of the clergy were able to afford nicer bread made from wheat and thus were not as commonly affected.
You don’t go on a spasm-y trip just by touching it. You have to consume it for weeks, which results in chronic poisoning. ( If you stop eating it early enough, you may recover. So when people suffering from these “demonic possessions” took refuge in churches and stopped eating low-grade rye bread they were sometimes miraculously healed. 
More interesting facts:
Ergot poisoning can result in convulsions & hallucinations, or it can cause gangrene, depending on which group of active alkaloids are present. (Horrifying, either way.) It killed a lot of people in Europe in the Middle Ages. 
In Europe, often there was a strong correlation between wet summers (which provide ideal conditions for ergot) and reports of witchcraft/ possession. And in Norway and Scotland, records of witch persecution are only found in areas where rye was grown and used to make bread.
And I just learned right now that one author dude translated the word “Beowulf” as “barley-wolf” which could indicate a connection to ergot. The LSD-like effects could be a valid explanation for stories of Old Norse warriors going into the a sort of trancelike battle rage.
(this is exactly the kind of stuff my herbology medicinal plants class is about, it’s so cool omfg. we had a lecture on ergot last week.)

This is true. I did my research project in 9th grade on the Salem Witch Trials and mentioned Ergot as a source of why all of this happened. But let’s not forget other facts, including:
Most of the women targeted were single widows with land, midwifes, etc- They had power, without penis, and in a Puritan town that was no bueno.
The girls who did most of the accusing accused people who had threatened them or their families, even in an indirect way (financially, authoritarian-ly, so on…). They could have picked their accused based on what they heard their parents talking about.
Read Brain on Fire. It wasn’t until after I read this book that I connected a lot of the behaviors with Ann Putnam & co. An inflamed brain causes sever hysteria, hallucinations, delusions, and body movements that those who suffer it very rarely remember, provided they survive.
Hysteria also exists, though today it displays itself in the form of anorexia or bulimia. Mostly girls suffer, and the right type of mental hysteria could result in the very same behaviors, delusions, and violent physical fits that the girls suffered.
Or, you had a group of childish girls who were really evil. My mom’s a witch. I don’t believe a town full of witches was evil, but the girls who killed them were.
I don’t believe that everything is broken down to one, exact, fact. I think there’s a combination of factors here we need to remember in a country still fighting Patriarchy.
