Gräfin Bathory and long ear hair

If you're walking from Kohlmarkt to Albertina you are passing by an unimpressing house with an Italian restaurant in it. This is where Countess Elisabeth Bathory used to kill young virgins to take baths in their blood in order to keep her skin young. but not only once in a while, no, once a week! So, this friendly Lady killed over 600 girls and still is in Guinness World Records for being the mass murderer with the most victims. I wanted to look it up and found something far more interesting: the man with the longest ear hair in the world (13,2 cm!!!!!) . Look at him here, really...god has been kind to you.
But back to the killer countess. Certainly people told each other that she must be a vampire and she was THE inspiration for the first draft of Bram Stoker's Dracula. If it is true what our guide said, it is possible that they release it in 2008 and then...huiiii.... Vienna could become the first adress for gothic, blood-drinking, white-makeup-black-eyes, matrix coats wearing people... that's spooky indeed!
