Legendary stories of love:
Annie Oakley and Frank Butler
The lead characters of the famous Irish 1940′s musical Annie Get Your Gun, were inspired from the true love story of Annie Oakley and Frank Butler. Annie Oakley was a skilled rifle shooter. In 1881, the famous Baughman and Butler shooting act was performing in Cincinnati. Star of the show, champion Frank E. Butler, boasted that he could beat any local marksman and challenged the gathering. Butler was amused to see Annie Oakley taking his challenge. After missing his 25th shot, Butler lost the match and the bet. She not only won the competition but also his heart. He began courting Oakley, and they married on June 20, 1882. Butler abandoned his career to manage hers. They both joined the Buffalo Bill’s Wild West Show. Annie died in 1926 and her heartbroken husband died 18 days later after 44 years of togetherness.
Salim and Anarkali
Princes Salim, the son of The Great Mughal emperor Akbar and his wife, Mariam-uz-Zamani was a spoiled and rude boy who fell in love with a maid of the palace, a beautiful maiden Anarkali. The mesmerizing beauty of Anarkali captivated and charmed the prince and soon they were deeply in love. But the emperor could not bear the fact that his son was in love with an ordinary courtesan. He started pressurizing Anarkali and devised all sorts of tactics o make her fall in the eyes of the prince. Salim was sent by the king on a mission and Anarkali was entombed alive in a brick wall.

It was latter dramatized by William Shakespeare and is still staged all over the world. These two powerful people fell in love at first sight. Mark Antony left his wife, Octavia, for the mesmerizing Cleopatra and married her. Octavia’s brother Octavian brought the army of Rome to destroy them. It is said that while fighting a battle against Romans, Antony got false news of Cleopatra’s death. Shattered, he fell on his sword. Cleopatra when learned about the death of Antony, killed herself using the poison of an asp. Her two serving maids, Iras and Charmian, also killed themselves. They died but their love for each other lived.
Horror Legends: The snake woman-
Do you enjoy a nice, cool swim on a hot day? Perhaps you are particularly averse to receiving a cooling dose of urine at the local swimming pool? Maybe you just like the sand beneath your toes as you walk the beaches, choosing a nice, quiet, isolated spot from the rest of the city plebs.
You put down your towel, throw off the constricting second skin that is your clothing, and head toward the waves.
But hark! You spot a woman in the water; long black hair flowing around her alabaster skin as she flails weakly. With speed and grace to rival the very best studs of the Baywatch era, you fling yourself into the oddly calm waters and swim her way.
You swim toward the endangered beauty, your eyes meeting as you work desperately to save your drowning Ophelia.
...except that now you seem to be paralyzed. Also, Ariel now appears to be using her long, prehensile snake-body to gracefully close the romantic distance between you. Perhaps, you consider, she simply wishes to save you from this terminal case of leg cramps? Perhaps the piercing of your tender man-flesh by her snake-like tongue is some odd form of mermaid CPR? No, you are now being slowly digested by the Snake Woman, or, "Nure-Onna".
The moral of the story should be fairly obvious: Don't try to save a drowning woman. She could be a snake-monster in disguise!

One of many insanity defence cases:
History recalls Sickles as a politician, a general for the Union forces and a diplomat. But today, he's perhaps best remembered as the father of the temporary insanity defense.Sickles was embroiled in numerous kerfuffles during his time in public life -- such as when he had his wrist slapped by legislators for inviting a prostitute named Fanny White into the New York State Assembly. (He supposedly introduced Fanny to Queen Victoria, too.) But this was nothing compared to the scandal that followed his shooting of Philip Barton Key II, son of "Star Spangled Banner" writer Francis
