    So I'm looking at stories of mythological creatures during commercials, and I come across this thing on basilisks. These three kids in Poland in 1587 (accurate, huh?) were playing hide and seek, and went into an old cellar. They died from the critter, and so did the servant that went looking for them. Anywho, they figured out it was a basilisk because they dragged out the bodies with a stick, and could tell they were poisoned. This is how they took care of it:

    Sounds like it was a good idea...

    The first one frightens me. And it's not the lizard that does it.

    Nice job though! I didn't even think to grab pictures.
