Twerk or tweet: An October 2 update

WEDNESDAY OCTOBER 2 2013

Meteor sightings in the 1000s across the United States..


'Fireballs' fall from the sky in Mexico.. reports that they caused nausea and headaches in rescuers in the Yucatan.. Was it ball lightning or something else?

Ison could still be the comet of the century. Or not.
ISON passed by MARS on Tuesday..

Nine maps that show where crimes are committed..

The government shutdown reaches Mars: Curiosity mission now affected..
No progress in shutdown stalemate..
NASA and science hit hard by government shutdown..
Fear: If the shutdown persists until October 17, all hell may break loose for everyone. "They" say..


Something to watch: There are clouds and rain near Cuba, and it could turn into a tropical system and move towards the Southeast.. Numerous weather models seem to be converging on the notion that whatever happens with the storm system, the United States will be affected. And the timing as usual is weird: It was one year ago this month that Sandy struck the Northeast.. I am not comparing these storms at all, but just the typical weird timing on events in life has once again amazed me..


Justin Bieber gets CARRIED up the Great Wall of China..
And they sprint behind him while skateboarding....an ego out of control?


Five marketing lessons from Miley Cyrus.. Interesting perspective .. she did create a spectacle and benefits highly from it..and it struck while the iron was hot. Genius marketing moves, for sure. With the help of course of SATAN and her Illuminati brethren..

There's no king like Larry King: A failed experiment: CNN to drop Piers Morgan, according to a report.. and it appears CNN wants Katie Couric to replace..

Colorado hotel that inspired Stephen King's THE SHINING wants to dig up neighboring pet cemetery..


Justice system? A 71-year-old Louisiana prisoner named Herman Wallace has been released from 41 years of solitary confinement because he is dying of cancer.. his conviction on murder overturned..

Bizarre tale of the fake Germany "forest boy" continues as he escapes a jail sentence..

Flowers evolved up to 100 million years prior to what we originally thought..


BATMAN set to begin again in ARKHAM ORIGINS game.. AND it looks cooler than hell..

This just sounds like a bad idea: A new horror-themed game show is set to begin, thanks to SONY. It's called RELEASE THE HOUNDS.. The unknowing contestants will be facing fear in their quest for money. One part of the show will be a race in which they will be chased by hound dogs who have been trained (tortured?) to guard cash the people are seeking. This sounds like we've gone over the edge. I remember the controversy in the late 1990s when Survivor first started. And now we, as TV viewers, have evolved our habits into watching people being chased by dogs that could very well kill them? This is entertainment, baby. Welcome to TEEEE VEEE...

Halloween 2013: What is better than a sexy nurse? The HUFFINGTON POST says lots.


What are the trending costumes so far? You guessed it.. Miley Cyrus is looming large over Halloween 13..
Cyrus costumes flying off the shelf..

New Year's Eve.. Rockin' without Dick Clark in '13

Welcome to the final minutes of the year 2012. Yes. Already. It was so looked forward to, and it is ending so quickly...

It's minus Dick Clark this year, though. And that is notable. Fergie is showering ABC viewers tonight in the pre-game with Dick Clark related footage. Donna Summers is playing while the Doors are swaying. Yes, it's a stroll down amnesia lane in the fast lane. Dick Clarkless 2013. No countdown with the master of Times Square this year.

The show goes on, of course. With Ryan Seacrest to help. Before Seacrest will be 'out' there will be a number of events that occur. A massive ball will drop in Times Square. Revelers will kiss their hearts out.. then race for port-a-potties and their hotel rooms. Maybe stop by a pub and have a cup of cheer..

All around the world, the events are taking place. Some places on Earth are already 2013. The Pope will have a homily about how peace could be achieved. Fireworks will fly high into the night sky.. People will embrace …
