Video: 5 Bizarre Tombstones

Meant to serve as a memorial for those who have passed away and, in some  instances, a final word to the living, tombstones are, for the most  part, fairly run of the mill. But in some cases they can also be  incredibly strange. YouTube user Dark5 has put together a showcase of some of the weirdest grave markers found  throughout the world, from a tombstone for a child who had apparently  been dubbed 'Baby Monster' to a mysterious piece that purportedly  contained a hidden treasure map.

One of the more famous stories featured in the video concerns a Vermont  man from the 1800's named Timothy Clark Smith. Over the course of his  life, Smith heard a number of chilling stories about people  inadvertently being buried alive. These tales of 'Lazarus Syndrome,'  which was not altogether uncommon at the time, apparently had a  tremendous impact on him as he developed a profound fear of falling  victim to the phenomenon.
