wigs Club

This Scottish club was very interesting and slightly abnormal place. Going there mainly men, women there are very rarely caught, and not quite a woman (read all full, you will understand why we have written). The members of this club is very fond of a hearty meal, a glass of wine or whiskey, as well as to admire the variety of wigs. Yes, a very strange fetish, is not it? Most members of this club took care of and valued the wig, which was originally from the Scottish gentlemen's club "Blessing of the poor." It was assumed that this was a wig made of pubic hair, mistress of King Charles II (yes, and here a strange fetish escalated into something unhealthy). After a quarrel in the Scottish club "Blessing of the poor" have become very frequent, and at some point they were the reason that he broke up a famous wig of pubic hair fell into the hands of the founder of "wigs Club" and became its most real talisman.

But that small group of men kept in his monastery of pubic hair wig some women and actually worshiped him, our story does not end there. It is logical to assume that the hair in such wigs fell out and faded. So, each of the members of the club had to kiss him and to replace lost hair pubic hair already his mistress (everything was worse than we expected it earlier). There's this wig was his personal servant, who saw to it that all the hair in place and so on. If this creation abnormal locked up in the closet, then a banquet, "tselovashki" and the glorification of the pubic hair wigs came to an end, and the club members went home.

Molly Club

"Molly Clubs" were actually brothels in England of the 18th century that served gay men. Originally, the word "Molly" was a diminutive form of the name "Maria". In addition, the Maries called girls of easy virtue. But after a while, a concept such as "Molly," have come to associate with men who look very much like the girls. Perhaps the most bizarre ritual, held every December, was a kind of dressing up and the transformation of a man into a woman, which was soon to give birth. Until now, the purpose of this ritual is unknown. Yes, what really nothing to be surprised, then? There's pubic hair wigs, and then, "pregnant" man, who dresses in a woman. Everything is normal! What is really there!

The great ice storm in 1888 has become one of the most terrible events in US history. This terrible and a huge snowstorm took with them the lives of over 400 people. Those who remained alive in New York, did not want to forget that terrible accident and created the club in 1929, titled "Surviving the Great blizzard in 1888". Until 1933, in a given society is not accepted by women. I met this group of men each year in order to once again tell their story and, thus, never forget what happened then. But the stories about what they have experienced in the distant 1888, was not the only entertainment of members of this club. For example, when this club was 50-years, its members have decided to entertain themselves with artificial snow. Those who are in that club, the world reminded every time that all the snow storms and blizzards - it's nothing compared to what it was in 1888. The club lasted until 1969, since its founder died. Club called "Surviving the Great blizzard in 1888" was closed forever.

In 1669, a man named Harry Blunt allegedly formed a club of liars in this pub called "Tavern Bella" at Westminster. Harry Blount was considered witty gentleman with an innate ability to deceive people the most cunning, sophisticated, but very convincing ways. The club came into existence after the hunting stories, which were distributed among the people became more and more fantastic. In most of them it was extremely difficult to believe, but in spite of this, many people have sincerely believed and passed on to others the same stories, only to have their own embellishment.

When the club was founded, every time it sounded more incredible and amazing stories, and the people turned into a kind of leisure entertainment. All members of the "Club of the real liars" should tell you one by one, each its own history, but after all will speak, will be made by special judges 'verdict', whose story became the most interesting and impressive. Thus I choose the most "brilliant" liar.
