In the catacombs beneath the Capuchin convent in Palermo Sicily, there’s a very spooky mummy of a little girl who died in 1920. Occasionally, she seems to open and close her eyes, but now Italian researchers have a perfectly good explanation for it.

From Discovery News:

Recorded in time lapse photos and videos, the creepy phenomenon has been the subject of various speculations for some years. This week, Italian newspapers again reported that Rosalia Lombardo, a two-year-old girl who died of pneumonia in 1920, moves her eyelids several times during the day, slightly opening them to reveal intact blue eyes.

Obviously, the little girl is not proof of the undead. It’s all due to an optical illusion.

“It’s an optical illusion produced by the light that filters through the side windows, which during the day is subject to change,” said Dario Piombino-Mascali, curator of the Capuchin Catacombs.

In addition, the illusion is helped by the fact that Rosalia’s eyes are not completely closed.

    My developer is trying to persuade me to move to .net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the costs. But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using Movable-type on a number of websites for about a year and am concerned about switching to another platform. I have heard fantastic things about blogengine.net. Is there a way I can import all my wordpress content into it? Any kind of help would be really appreciated!
