Things You Need to Know #39

There was a man who was famous for photographing snowflakes.  His prints are now worth 2 to 3 thousand dollars each.  Except one.  The Devil's Flake was photographed in 1911 in Rhode Island.  It doesn't look much different from any other flake.  Those who see the print though will think of the flake constantly.  Soon, there are more of the Devil's Flake in their minds creating first gentle drifts in their thoughts and then out right storms.  If nothing is done, the thoughts will be frozen forever.  The person who first took the picture found that heat applied to the head was the only recourse.  He himself dunked in head in near scalding water.  It is feared that cure must get more drastic the more it is delayed.

This was something you needed to know
