A must listen to Clyde Lewis last night details the 'Krokodil with the Devil'.. The show focused on the drug that is promising to make you a zombie--it was in Russia and now flesh will rot in the United States. The bottom line: Krokodil is made from over-the-counter codeine-based headache pills, is mixed with iodine, gasoline, and paint thinner, and gets injected into those who crave it.. the effect? Their flesh rots and turns into a zombie-like state with festering sores and blood poisoning..The Arizona poison control center reports the first cases in the United States of addiction..

The horrors of Krokodil are shown on the UK DAILY MAIL..people with flesh rotting from their bones.. And 2.5 million people in Russia have checked in to seek treatment in Russia over the past three years..

STRANGER THINGS 2 looks incredible

The newest STRANGER THINGS 2 trailer hit on Friday the 13th .. amazing timing as always with the fine people at Netflix..

The excitement over this program is incredible. Not only are people re-watching and re-binging the first season in preparation, but there is an equal amount of re-watching and analyzing of the newest trailers..

Before discussion.. take a glance:

My initial thought: This is actually the weaker of the teasers and trailers for season 2.. Yes, I am inclined to wonder why Eleven is more androgynous  .. why she has more hair now and no one shaved it. why she is out of the upside down and eating Eggos in the normal world..

So many questions about her. But the trailer didn't pay much attention to her--I think on purpose. Instead we glimpsed into the post-pubescent boys and now new friends of another gender planning something, just as the world is being taken over by giant squid creatures from the upside down.

Not viewed at all? Mike's mom and dad. Barb..

Forgive me…


Yes, indeed.. a hurricane-ish type storm is about to hit Ireland..

Hurricane Ophelia is the 10th consecutive hurricane to form in the Atlantic basin this year. According to University of Miami hurricane expert Brian McNoldy, the last time ten consecutive storms became a hurricane was 1893. While a very interesting factoid, the "elephant in the room" is that Ophelia is headed to Ireland. It is rare, but not unprecedented.

There are a few interesting things about this.. First off, there have been really rare occasions that storms of this nature made it as far as Ophelia may..

Actually there have been only a handful in the past years since about, oh, 1851..

From 1851 to 2010, only 10 extratropical storms, typically the tail ends of tropical cyclones, have hit within 200 miles (322 kilometers) of Ireland....Hurricane Debbie was the only tropical hurricane to make landfall in that area, clipping the far northwest of the British Isles in 1961.

But this is 2017--the year that mayhem on …

The interesting tale of Joe Weller's sex prank line getting haunted

Joe Weller’s sex line prank video was seen by more than 2.5 million people when it was posted back in March.

It involved Joe trolling alleged sex workers over the phone – but some viewers spotted something creepy happening.
In the background, a piece of gym equipment with a handle begins to swing back and forward.

“It continues to swing in a way that if someone pushed it, it would have stopped,” he said in a recent video addressing the claims.
