There have been cases of death caused by drinking between 2.5 and 5 gals of water in a short period of time.
Rick, you are a wealth of knowledge, on many subjects!

What do you do when you don't need to use your fireplace? Fill it up with McIntosh equipment! Of course!

Said to have origins in Charleston, South Carolina, in the late 1800s, "haint blue" is the color used to paint the ceilings of front porches in order to repel spirits.
The belief is that spirits are unable to cross water, so the blue color would trick them into thinking the porch ceiling was actually a body of water.

Popular in New England, particularly in Vermont, "witch windows" are angled windows that are often found between roofs on the upper levels of a home.

As Devin Colman, who works for Vermont's Division for Historic Preservation, told Vermont Public Radio, "The story is that a witch on a broomstick can't fly through a crooked window opening, which I guess physically is true."

These are also known as "coffin windows," according to Colman, possibly because they could accommodate a coffin coming in and out of the upper floors. "The idea being that it's difficult to maneuver a coffin with a body from the second floor down to the first floor in these narrow staircases, so slide it out through the window and down the roof." That said, these windows also maximize an awkward sloping space, serving the practical purpose of adding more light and a breeze to an upper story of a home.

In some states around the US, such as Pennsylvania and Ohio, you'll often see large stars mounted on houses and barns.

Believed to have Pennsylvania-Dutch or German roots, these stars were once painted on barns to ward off evil and they were oftentimes referred to as "hex stars." They commonly used to feature six, eight, or 12 points and were located within a circle or square. Today they are referred to as "barn stars."
