Twerk or tweet: An October 2 update


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 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..

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...

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.
