As the story goes, Mordrake was heir to one of England’s most noble peerages but he would never claim the title. He was a gifted musician and a scholar who lived in complete isolation from the rest of the world, even the members of his own family. In the original article, the author claims that the nobleman had a graceful figure and compared his face to that of the ancient God Antonius on the back of his head.
Ever since 2007, pictures have been circulating online allegedly depicting a 19th century Englishman named Edward Mordrake. According to an article initially published in 1895, in the Boston Post, Mordrake was born with an extra face on the back of his head. Even though it couldn’t speak to the outside world the face tormented him in horrible ways.
According to the story authored by writer Charles Lotin Hildreth, Mordrake was eventually driven to despair and committed suicide at age 23. The face, which only occupied a small portion at the back of Mordrake’s head, was described as that of a beautiful girl and said to have been ‘lovely as a dream’. It also allegedly displayed every sign of intelligence. The lips would move incessantly as the eyes followed the movements of whoever was in front of it. If Mordrake was sad or crying, the face would smile with satisfaction.
According to Mordrake, his vestigial face which he referred to as his “devil twin” never slept. He always wondered if his ancestors were guilty of some unforgiving sin and that he was bound to such a fiend as punishment.
While talking with his doctors, Manvers and Treadwell, about the extent of his suffering, he asked them to remove the face and destroy it even at the cost of his own life. We were not told if the doctors considered his request or not rather, he took it upon himself to seek what he considered to be the only hope of freedom from his ordeal.
Even though he was monitored carefully , he managed to get some poison and committed suicide, He left behind a letter instructing whoever found it to destroy the face prior to his burial Mordrake feared that it might continue to whisper to him even in his grave torturing him for all eternity, as per his request he was buried in a waste place in unmarked grave.
There are several medical explanations for a condition such as Edward Mordrake’s case; there are also several aspects of his situation that are inconsistent but with documented medicine. He might have suffered from extremely rare conditions which only few known sufferers might have made it past infancy but Mordrake on the other hand lived up to 23 years old.
By definition, the conjoined twins are genetically identical but Mordrake’s supposed Devil twin was a female. Even if it might have been misinterpreted as female, it’s highly doubtful that it would have displayed any sign of intelligence. Descriptions of the vestigial face of the two-headed boy claimed that it could grimace and to some degree move its eyes but some basic form of consciousness was present yet intelligence was never observed. According to the doctors, the idea that Mordrake vestigial face could reportedly whisper troubling things to him at lengths isn’t consistent with what is known in medicine.
However, Mordrake has definitely found a place in pop culture as the subject of various films or songs. He has inspired a Tom Waits song called “Poor Edward” and three episodes of the series American Horror Story where he was portrayed by Wes Bentley. Also, two novels were based on Mordrake and his terrifying condition and currently there is also a feature of length film under the working title “Edward Mordrake” in development having “Wes Bentley” as the key player in the film. We will update you when the movie is out.
A groom slapped his bride at the wedding reception today and a Twitter user has taken to the platform to narrate how shocked she was after witnessing the scene.
The Twitter user identified as @MmantiUmoh noted that one doesn’t owe violent people love, said the incident was witnessed by the groom and bride’s parents including other family members. She revealed that it left her not wanting to attend weddings for some time.
The Twitter user wrote;
….. and start the reception, everyone is waiting.
The only thing you owe violent people is to see and respect their humanity in ways they refuse for others. But you are not required to see their anger as acceptable.
You don’t owe violent people love — ever.
A man I admire – Pastor John always reminds couples…
God knows the Hell you’ve been through more than anyone.
Hear this truth, Beloved: God doesn’t hate divorce more than
God adores you.
Be encouraged. Don’t condone domestic violence from your wife or husband. LEAVE!!!
At the reception today, the groom slapped the bride so hard for one second I thought a helium balloon had burst. While we were taking 10 Seconds to recover from the shock… “Angel”; Please let’s march in ****is tired and under a lot of pressure, let’s please just go in and start the reception, everyone is waiting.
The only thing you owe violent people is to see and respect their humanity in ways they refuse for others. But you are not required to see their anger as acceptable. You don’t owe violent people love — ever. It’s not love.
And maybe it’s worthy of note that even the best man asked angel “what did you do to him, why is he upset?” Well, the mc called and music roared and everyone walked in like nothing had happened. Couple danced from the entrance to podium. Cycle of domestic violence begins.
Please don’t ask me what I did. I did absolutely Nothing! Their parents witnessed the slapping ceremony…. some of their family members did too. I went home. I had a migraine. I don’t want to attend any weddings for a bit again. I will send my gift.
For those who insist on living with domestically violent partners. Well, I imagine God doesn’t rejoice over a marriage ending, but do you think God is okay with you being abused and living without love? Do you believe it’s possible that God might hate that even more?
On Saturday night, Zendaya wore a gorgeous green blazer dress to accept the Virtuosos Award at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival.
It was paired with Bulgari jewelry and matching glittery pumps, which pretty much broke the internet.
Her longtime stylist and Legendary judge Law Roach posted a photo of the Malcolm & Marie star to Instagram, showing off the look on his muse.
“Easy Kill….. @zendaya wearing @pertegaz and @bulgari jewels,” he captioned his post, listing details for Z’s all-green outfit. The glittery blazer dress — which looks like it came straight from Emerald City — was designed by Manuel Pertegaz for PERTEGAZ.
With a look this good, I don’t blame Zendaya for regramming. The 24-year-old actress took it upon herself to post the photo on her profile as well.
