    Odd Note:
    "
    My love, she sleeps! Oh, may her sleep
    As it is lasting, so be deep!
    Soft may the worms about her creep!
    Far in the forest, dim and old,
    For her may some tall vault unfold
    Some vault that oft has flung its black
    And winged panels fluttering back,
    Triumphant, o'er the crested palls,
    Of her grand family funerals...

    "
    ― Edgar Allan Poe



    "Time to go down to the basement for some more hauntingly delicious...poetry is for libs!

    If Edgar Allen Poe were here, i'm pretty sure he'd call @BarryDillon a philistine

    I mean, I do agree that those are butts. That much has been established, clearly.

    Since they built a freeway over part of the graveyard, does that mean the freeway is haunted? I saw Pet Sematary. Building on top of Indian graveyards is very dangerous in terms of supernatural consequences. Perhaps you could research how many car crashes happen on that stretch of freeway and compare it to the national average to determine its level of haunting (controlling for external variables of course). You could probably get a yuge grant for it too.

    @Ruprecht, from wiki on Never Let Me Go:

    None of those perspectives are without basis, but it does sound like some critics are disrespectful of SF and just don't want to think that Ishiguro just straight up wrote a SF story.

    Only if the grantor’s office is also built on Indian burial ground.
