Tumultuous Tuesdays.. just another day on planet earth.

Midway through the month already.. this year near over. How did the resolutions go?

Here's the smattering of patterings for you, offered like rain on a tin roof..
The news of today. For better or worse..

Anyone feel some planetary shaking lately? Like.. a lot?

Another powerful typhoon is headed towards Japan.. this one appears to be set to have an impact on Fukushima.. More so than previous.. And so much so that some fear 'inflows of water' with a huge flood potential around the doomed nuke plant. Is TEPCO ready?

Forced labor is central to the Chinese economic miracle.. I know you don't think about it throughout the day when you happily tap your touchscreen phone.. but there are lots of drops of blood, gallons of sweat, and often death, that went into your handheld device..And your other products, too.

Brooklyn mourners question the violent death of Miriam Carey --they are doing the questioning that the media should.. not one civil rights activist is asking why a mother was gunned down in front of her baby even though she had no weapons? No one cares that a woman's only crime--at the most--seemed to be mental issues? No one asks why the police overdid their force and murdered this woman? No one.. Except people at a funeral with her half-open casket .. This story has been ignored since it occurred.. There are times the 'watchdog' media acts more like a poodle fearing a beating at the hands of an owner..

Claim running on the website Nibiru brightens the sky after a sunset in Mexico.. There is video, too.. I have often laughed at these ridiculous claims of Planet X.. but sometimes I feel like I'm just laughing in spite of myself, and my fear.. I cannot explain the video. There is a chance the light comes from clouds .. there is also a chance that the time stamp on this supposed video is just wrong, or flawed.. or perhaps an old image was used in place of a new one..? I'm sure someone with a sound scientific background could--and if they do, I will be secure laughing at Nibiru claims again.. Until then.. hmmm..

The pink stars are falling.. or was that purple? An interesting event occurred in the skies the other day..

I tend to like the stories I find on CRACKED.COM.. but I did not really appreciate this article that was sent to me making light of people who think aspartame and high fructose corn syrup are dangerous.. I stray from conspiracy theories without backup information, but a simple search not only on the origins of both of these artificial chemicals and the outcome of their use will bring you loads of scientific information--real science with real studies--documenting their not always-that-safe reputation.. I think it's a really healthy idea to eat all real food--no more than one or two ingredients in each of the food products you cook/eat.. And this Cracked article pushing fake additives annoyed me, and somewhat offended my intellgience..

HUFFINGTON POST asks what is the 'worst' sexy Halloween costume. I swear this is just an attempt to get website hits from the term 'sexy halloween costume' in Google searches..

Gordon Levitt, Rudd Vying For "Ant-Man" If I would choose, I'd go with Levitt..

WALKING DEAD return a hit again.. 16 million viewers for the debut..It actually broke cable ratings records..



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.
