The Thanksgiving Eve news of the world

WEDNESDAY NOVEMBER 27 2013

There are two places that will be busier than ever today: Roads, and bars. Highways are 'jammed with people and cars'.. People racing home to be with kith and kin. Sometimes grudgingly. Sometimes not. Later today, pubs and bars will open their doors to a night fill with happy go lucky home comers.. And that is the part that reminds me of this 2008 ONION article titled: 26-Year-Old To See Every Asshole He Ever Went To High School With On Night Before Thanksgiving . How true that is.

Now to the news of the day..



A fascinating story: Welcome to Cicada 3301, the internet mystery that has the world baffled..

Holiday hell: The 2013 holiday shopping season may end up being remembered for its ugly sweaters and, for many retailers, even uglier discounts... A growing weak economy, no fashion trends, and no must haves.. it's a year of jitters and sputtering.. a holiday season without guidance, or fun. Instead people are just going to try to make it through December and be fine..


The Thanksgiving choice: Have dessert, or go shopping?


The UK GUARDIAN published a great story on he holiday shopping world we are about to enter.. The paper writes that Christmas is just an excuse to sell more useless crap. George Monbiot penned an article that would never have made it by editors in the United States starting with this sentence: "A global bullshit industry recruits the values with which we'd like the festival to be invested – to sell things no one wants"

But now Iran says that the fact sheet released by the Obama Administration is misleading and false..


Spies worry over 'doomsday cache' stored by Edward Snowden.. According to the news article, British and US officials fear Snowden has a very highly classified heavily encrypted amount of material stored on a data cloud.. So of all the revelations, could anything else released shock people? It would appear with this fear, the answer is yes.

This is going down a road that we may not want to.. Scientists are learning how to shape our memory by testing chemicals that can DELETE THEM! Some memories are bad, and some who have went through awful stuff, well, they just want to forget it. But when power as this rests in the hands of an elite few, to what end does that justify? Deleting memories, forever? Shaping the reality we have lived? I find this scientific endeavor to be dangerous..

FIRE AND FURY

The fake missile warning in Hawaii was scary for residents of that state .. 38 minutes of hell.

Scary for America more may be what ELIANA JOHNSON writes in POLITICO: A false warning of a missile threat in Hawaii sent White House aides scrambling Saturday, frantically phoning agencies to determine a response and triggering worries about their preparedness almost a year into the Trump administration. President Donald Trump’s Cabinet has yet to test formal plans for how to respond to a domestic missile attack, according to a senior administration official. John Kelly, while serving as Secretary of Homeland Security through last July, planned to conduct the exercise. But he left his post to become White House chief of staff before it was conducted, and acting secretary Elaine Duke never carried it out. The Old Cold War guard is gone. The newcomers can issue threats but appear to be unaware on how to act on them.. “The U.S. government hasn’t tested these plans in 30 years,” said the senior a…
