History is fascinating, not least because of all of the disturbing things that have happened.

For example, have you ever heard of Unit 731? It was a covert biological and chemical warfare research and development unit of the Imperial Japanese Army that engaged in lethal human experimentation and biological weapons manufacturing during the Second Sino-Japanese War and World War II.

Biological weapons testing, freezing experiments, and vivisection were commonplace there and for many years the Japanese government did not recognize the horrors that were committed there.

The atrocities committed in Unit 731 were dramatized in the films Men Behind the Sun and Philosophy of the Knife, which, it should go without saying, are not casual viewing. (Seriously. Only for those with strong stomachs who can handle extreme horror films.)

If you've ever been curious about prions or about missing persons cases, then you've come to the right place.

How many of you have made a habit of staying up late to read all of the disturbing Wikipedia entries you could find? Just me? Sorry, not sorry... I can't help that I have a very morbid mind.
