The other day my son was talking about all the things (for good or bad) you can learn to do or make online.

“Careful that you don’t end up on some government list,” I joked until he looked meaningfully at me.

Oh. Right.

I cringe to think what someone would make of my searches through the years, which have included:

  • The life of Blood Countess Elizabeth Bathory, the most prolific female serial killer of all time who purportedly bathed in the blood of virgins.
  • How much virgin's blood it takes to constitute a bath
  • The Order of the Dragon
  • How to tie fly-fishing lures
  • Whether one can make a living hand-tying fishing lures
  • How to play the ancient Egyptian board game Senet
  • First Century public latrines
  • What the uh, toilet paper options were in 1st Century public latrines
  • Secret tunnels beneath Budapest’s Castle Hill
  • Secret tunnels in Zagreb
  • Secret tunnels in Jerusalem
  • Ancient Glagolitic
  • Paleo-Hebrew alphabet
  • Sabaean alphabet
  • How long it takes to get a caravan of 600 camels from Yemen to Israel
  • Leprosy
  • Heart conditions
  • A bunch of random diseases
  • Pretty much anything that can go wrong in pregnancy
  • How stinky a dead body would be after three days
  • Whether it’s possible to strangle someone with their own shirt
  • How fast one dies from Japanese ritual suicide
  • How many kids a 900 year-old woman could produce
  • Mitochondrial DNA
  • UV Tattoos
  • Where Solomon might have gotten his gold
  • Where the Queen of Sheba got her gold
  • Where all this gold came from, anyway
  • The importance of myrrh in mummy preparation
  • Phoenician sea snails
  • The future of memory erasing science
  • Skiptracing
  • Escaping the grid
  • Evasive driving
  • How to disappear

So many twisted rabbit trails—most lately as I’ve written this latest duology about the descendants of the Blood Countess whom I later learned I’m related to! Sometimes all that research yields a little more than I expected.

Win a set of the Descendants of the House of Bathory: THE PROGENY and FIRSTBORN. You'll be entered if you tell us below some of the strangest searches you've done.

FIRSTBORN by Tosca Lee

Descendants of the House of Bathory #2

Firstborn

From New York Times bestselling author Tosca Lee comes the much-anticipated, high-speed sequel to The Progeny.

Face-to-face with her past, Audra Ellison now knows the secret she gave up everything—including her memory—to protect. A secret made vulnerable by her rediscovery, and so powerful neither the Historian nor the traitor Prince Nikola will ever let her live to keep it.

With Luka in the Historian’s custody and the clock ticking down on his life, Audra only has one impossible chance: find and kill the Historian and end the centuries old war between the Progeny and Scions at last—all while running from the law and struggling to control her growing powers.

With the help of a heretic monk and her Progeny friends Claudia, Piotrek, and Jester, Audra will risk all she holds dear in a final bid to save them all and put her powers to the ultimate test. Love, action, and stunning revelation reign in this thrilling conclusion to The Progeny.

Aliens, angels, fairies, dragons, cat memes, and minions
memes.

Looking for a haunted hotel to stay in on a vacation. Or
searching for a list of human parasites, that was a
traumatizing mistake, I do not recommend it!
(Linda Knowles 3:34pm May 15)

Definitely tons of stuff.
What sort of animals can paralyze you,
How long it takes for a wound to become infected,
What sort of illnesses cause hallucinations, (turns out a
fever does quite nicely)
I'm definitely in the same boat. :)

SO hope I win these books!
(Emmi Rose 8:11pm May 15)

Hhmmm, that's tough. I do search for health, doodles, cartoons, quotes, and more. Strange ones, not really sure.
