Movie/TV Trivia

Three Major Horror Franchises Were Inspired by the Same Serial Killer

It takes one particularly terrifying creep to inspire Hannibal Lecter, Norman Bates, and Leatherface, but that's the legacy left by horrifying serial killer Ed Gein. When he was finally caught and his house of horrors in Plainfield, Wisconsin, discovered, police found masks and lampshades made from human skin, among plenty of other atrocities. His astonishing depravity proved a source of creative inspiration.

Registering as Married at a Hotel in North Carolina Makes It So

Let's say a man and a woman walk into a hotel in North Carolina, request to share a room, and claim they are married. By common law marriage rules in the state, that man and woman would legally be married.

As the couple "outwardly present themselves as husband and wife to the public," they are deemed a common law marriage, that is honoured and valid in North Carolina.

Should you find yourself in need of a hotel room for the night, you may want to fess up if you aren't a married couple.
