Something slaughtered Russian hikers in 1959…

But to this, no one is quite sure what did. Tonight, George Knapp takes us back in time to try to find out..

Some background may be in order.. 
The event is termed the Dyatlov Pass incident. It’s been a famed target of paranormal and UFO investigators for some time. The entire affair is shrouded with mystery. 
Nine hikers, who were experienced in their craft, died in some pretty bizarre ways in 1959.  Human tracks were found heading downhill. The temperature was minus 24 at the time the hikers were on the Russia Ural Mountains—the local language named the mountain “Do not Go There.” The tracks that were found were strange mainly because, in the conditions, they were barefoot. Barefoot—minus 24 and barefoot tracks were found.. Think about that one for a minute.
Thinks get even weirder, though. 
Seven men and two women were said to be experienced hikers.. history tells us that they were in the snow-capped Ural Mountains. Cold.. beautiful.. and deadly for all nine of them, as they never lived to tell the tale of their venture. Instead, their bodies were found in various locations, frozen in the conditions.. Some of them also had horrid internal injuries, but yet their outside physical appearance showed no wounds or scratches. They also had high levels of radiation present ion some of their clothes. One person found dead was missing a tongue. They were prematurely aged—their hair was gray…
Typically, as things go, people claim UFOs are behind it. They also say Soviet weapons did it. Some claim Bigfoot. A plethora of explanations of the strange—but the real strange thing of this whole affair is that we don’t know what did it..
Tonight on Coast to Coast AM, George Knapp will attempt to find out.  I am eagerly looking forward to this program.. I think Knapp will do it justice, and I can’t wait to hear some theories proposed by Keith McCloskey, who wrote a book on the incident calledMOUNTAIN OF THE DEAD.
Listen in should you have the chance..
Unless the story is just too creepy to handle.

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…

THE UNLUCK OF THE IRISH: TROPICAL STORM MAY HIT IRELAND!!

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 …
