I Ain't Afriad Of No Ghost (Town)

Over at, a "blog about the oddities of our world," there's a gallery of the "10 Most Amazing Ghost Towns." The list includes disaster sites, war zones, hubristic construction projects, and cities swept into obsolescence by torrential economic or demographic forces. Essentially, it's a short catalog of some of humanity's mistakes, false starts, and hasty decisions. Visually, it all kind of reminds us of the first half of WALL-E.

UPDATE: We really love the ghost towns list apparently: we posted about it last week, too. Apologies. This'll be the last time we mention it. Until August.
