Welcome to Jack the Ripper's Asylum! Jack the Ripper In the Autumn of 1888 five prostitutes in an area known as Whitechapel became victims of the killer we now call Jack the Ripper. This is Saucy Jacky's unofficial playground... Check out the discussions, chats, fun and games with like-minded inmates in an attempt to get into the mind and place of Britain's most notorius serial killer... Ha ha. Catch us if you can Mr. Lusk.
Eight little whores, with no hope of heaven, Gladstone may save one, then there'll be seven. Seven little whores beggin for a shilling, One stays in Henage Court, then there's a killing. Six little whores, glad to be alive, One sidles up to Jack, then there are five. Four and whore rhyme aright, So do three and me, I'll set the town alight Ere there are two. Two little whores, shivering with fright, Seek a cosy doorway in the middle of the night. Jack's knife flashes, then there's but one, And the last one's the ripest for Jack's idea of fun.

See below, that an A. Kosminski contributed an amount of 1l. 1s. 0d. for the re-building of the Old Castle Street Synagogue. How cute... If he is the Ripper, he does have some good in him at least.

That was so kind of him. Proof that people can be good. Even people that might be serial killers.

(Um, what is 1l. 1s?)

It's the amount of money. It's old currency - I can try and work out how much that is in pounds and convert it to dollers. (We scrapped shillings years ago because the coin isn't worth much at all any more due to inflation.)
But I couldn't believe it!! Sort of funny really - the 'bad boys' tend to have a soft spot somewhere in their hearts, like Al Capone donated loads of money to charity, didn't he?

Ah, ya. Inflation has gotten bad. (Lol, I made a POM short about inflation. XD It's 10x funnier than it sounds. XDDD)
I think everybody has a soft spot. Bad or not.

Well, one shilling is about 5p ^^ Not sure how much that is in dollers but it's about 0.8 dollars. Sounds quite hilarious now donating 5p to charity! XD Hahahahaa!

Oh yeah, of course it was worth more back then! You could stay in the doss house for 4p a night, if you get it into perspective. So maybe it was about a £10 I'm guessing.

Ya, It still is really generous that he gave to charity.
Lol, I relized that since to me, the L looking symbol looks weird to me, so this-> $ must look weird to you. XD

The good old British pound... £
Actually, I learnt how to write $ first, strangely enough because I see it everywhere, so it's not too strange! XD

I'm wondering where he got the money from, since he lived on the benefit of his family and they must have provided him with money I'm guessing. I might just give that place a visit some time next time I go to Whitechapel and see what his money went into restoring!

Also since you're a huge superpower with your influences everywhere! C:

He might have worked as a night guard for Woolf's tailor business it has been suggested, so maybe he got a little 'pocket money' for that.

Ya, but some countries hate us and some people think we need to learn chinese because China might take over. I personally don't think that will happen.

That's what I was thinking. I wonder what made him decide to do give to charity all of a sudden.

Maybe he was feeling guilty, but then again, maybe not. He was in a bad state of mind then, but he might have hit a period where he was slightly better since he pops up again being arrested for walking an unmuzzled dog through Spitalfields. (Which apparently was a friend's and didn't belong to him) I'll post the incident. It's hilarious when he acts all cheeky to wriggle out of the fine. His family might have encouraged him as well, you never know. Or he just randomly felt like it. XD

Yeah, it was illegal then. I'll make a new thread. It's quite funny to discuss. XD
