History Fact

Turkeys Were Once Worshipped Like Gods

While the turkey is currently America's favorite part of the Thanksgiving meal, in 300 B.C., these big birds were heralded by the Mayan people as vessels of the gods and were honored as such, so much so that they were domesticated to have roles in religious rites. They were symbols of power and prestige and can be found everywhere in Maya iconography and archaeology.

Movie/TV Quote

"Ye best start believin' in ghost stories, Miss Turner. Yer in one."


Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl (2003)


There's one character in the entire Pirates of the Caribbean franchise who was appropriately pirate-y, and it was Captain Barbossa, played with signature flair by the scenery-devouring Geoffrey Rush. He's a reminder that, before we all started to hate them, these movies used to be fantastic, and nothing comes close to the zombie-pirate terror of The Curse of the Black Pearl. Things go from regular period piece to nearly a horror movie when Elizabeth Turner is exposed to the reality of the doomed sailors onboard the Black Pearl: when the moon hits their eyes like a big pizza pie that's when their skin dissolves into shreds of decaying flesh and tendons and not even bullets can kill them. Barbossa growls this iconic line at Liz before she flees into the belly of the ship, and then he slams the door shut and lets out a crunchy belly laugh that sounds like a bunch of bones being scraped together. Unforgettable.
