    Saturday I LOL'd while walking down Beacon (S'ville) between WF and Washington, 3 cop cars (2 marked, 1 unmarked) had a big SUV pulled over and two old townie looking guys handcuffed on the sidewalk. As I passed, one of the old guys goes "Man, I don't even know what this is about!" One of the cops says, "Well, but you do know what this is about." And the guy goes, "Well...yeah."DFL and DTF :D:D:D:D

    we have shoes made out of human skin in my museum, and while i know it's on the state's 3rd grade curriculum, i still thought it was weird when someone brought in 6 6 year olds and insisted they hear the story about the murders, lynching, and human experimentation that led to these shoes

    the not-actually-short version is that big nose george was a criminal in wyoming, who was with a gang in 1878 that decided to rob a train by derailing it. unfortunately for them, a train employee saw the damaged tracks and was able to warn the train in time, so the train backed up to the nearest town safely, and a sheriff and a sorta law man for the train company went off to track down the gang. (this part happened literally the day before thomas edison came into town on the train!)

    the gang hid in a valley and just shot the crap out of those two lawmen, which was the first death in the line of duty for any officers in wyoming, so a friggin huge bounty was put out on the gang, and they split up and ran away (and mostly died or were caught in the next few years).

    2 years later, big nose george is in montana, has a few too many drinks, and starts bragging about getting away with killing a law man. news gets back down to wyoming, and a sheriff goes up and captures him and brings him back to rawlins (he's actually taken off the train and nearly lynched at a town near here, where another of his gang had been lynched, which is something they recreate every year - this area is fucked up). george pleads guilty, then realizes they're going for 1st degree murder and changes his plea to innocent, but is still found guilty and sentenced to hang.

    the hanging isn't scheduled for several months, but as it approaches, big nose george plans to escape. he somehow gets a pen knife and pries the bolts out of his shackles, then uses them to brain his jailer (actually causing permanent brain damage). he's still on his bad luck streak, though, as the jailer's wife was just coming by, and she manages to get her husband's gun and force george back into his cell (oh how embarrassing, stopped by a woman).

    town officials are terrified that he's going to escape and they'll be blamed, so they have a blacksmith make some new 10 pound shackles that day and put them on him. waste of time, though, cuz that night townspeople hold up the prison and take big nose george down to front street, where nearly the entire town has gathered. they string him up, but the first time it doesn't work (possible the barrel they had him step off wasn't high enough), and in the fuss of stringing him up a second time his hands get free, and he grabs on to the telegraph pole the rope is over, and manages to climb a few feet up, begging the crowd for someone, anyone to shoot him, so he doesn't have to strangle. no one does, and eventually his arms give out and he hangs. between the two hangings, his ears are rubbed off (we have his death mask, no ears!). this is all done by about 10pm. (early to bed, early to rise, etc)

    in town, there's a doctor who has a significant interest in the criminal mind, because his wife suffered multiple brain injuries from horseback incidents that left her criminally insane, leading her to try to kill her family. he sees george's body as a useful study tool, so sends his partner dr. osborne to go fetch the body, which he claims he gets governmental permission to do, but he took the body at midnight so everyone finds that questionable.

    over the next year, these two doctors and their 15 year old assistant lillian (later both a fashion model and the first female doctor in wyoming) perform experiments on the body, keeping it in a whiskey barrel with a salt solution when they're not working on him, but the barrel's in full view of anyone who comes to the office. when they've learned all they're going to, osborne decides to take a souvenir and takes skin from the chest and thighs and has it tanned. He has it made into a medicine bag, a pair of shoes, and a coin purse (i think that was actually his balls but we don't tell tourists that??), and is hella disappointed that the shoe maker ignored his request to work in the nipples so it'll be obviously human. the shoes are now creased from wear, and supposedly he wore them to his later inauguration as mayor.

    lillian's offered a piece of skin, says nah, and takes the skull cap. the body's put back in the barrel, and buried behind the building. ~70 years later during construction it's discovered. lillian's husband sees the discovery and goes "huh i bet this is what my wife has been talking about since forever!" and goes home and gets his ash tray/door stop/pin holder/flower pot, dusts it out, and brings it back to the body, where it matches up perfectly with the bottom of the skull in the barrel, identifying the body as big nose george. we've got the skull, and the rest of the body disappeared, supposedly either burnt in a barrel of oil, dumped in the desert, or both.

    people come in off the highway all the damn time just wanting to see the shoes, show us the shoes, we only want the shoessss and then are pissed that it's one of 3 things in the joint that you can't take pictures of
