Tuesday terrors


A sampling of news from around the world.. For better or worse (You know what it normally is)

For those who did not listen last night, it was an amazing and important Ground Zero with Clyde Lewis, titled "Camp for the useless Eaters" .. I really recommend you give it a listen..

I was moved to true emotion and sadness this morning looking at some images from the Philippines. I saw a photo, which I will not share due to the graphic nature, of a father holding his toddler in his arms.. he was weeping. She was dead.. he was taking her to the morgue. She was the victim of this tremendous disaster that will be the storm for the record books.. I cannot fathom the thoughts of what happened here.. I also cannot explain how angry I am at American media for their selfish attitude regarding news. They cover politics as though it matters.. they feed us trivial garbage, a steady diet of nonsense that spews from their talking head mouths. I dislike them not for who they are, but for who they pretend they are.. We don't get news. Thank God for the Internet. I am going to post some links at the bottom of this update that, if you want help, you can click on and send whatever..

The situation in the Philippines has been officially designated a 'calamity' by the government there..

Bodies in the Philippines are being piled high in the streets.. I have a big fear that 10,000 dead is an understatement.. I really fear this..
Anger is rising..
Planes that are carrying important aid are grounded because they are TOO BIG to land at the disaster zone's airport..
Photos of the wrath..
Even more disaster: Earthquake rattles the area hit by superstorm Haiyan..
There are also warnings coming that mudslides may be the next disaster that will unfold for this poor people..

Once again: I was amazed this morning: Tens of thousands potentially dead in the Philippines, China lost a lot of farms from the same storm, another storm kills hundreds in Somalia.. and the top story on the big three network morning news shows? The 'cold' in the United States and the coating of snow that some people got--a coating! It's November. It gets cold. And it snows. Sometimes there's cold November rain, so say the Guns N Roses. Sometimes snow. Either way, there was no coverage of the unfolding disaster in other nations. But other nations know what goes on in America--we just don't know what goes on there.. Sickening, news media..sickening.

Sea turtles dying in Central America..

Record number of dolphins dying along the East Coast.. I have not seen any expert tie this in the with Gulf oil disaster from a few years ago.. Could this be the effects along the Atlantic coastline finally being felt?

This is the new America: Street lights shine in the night--and also watch your every move and listen to your every word..

A new look inside chicken McNuggets by a professor of medicine Richard deShazo. He described the 'food' as edible super glue, confirming may reports that the processed pieces of 'meatlike' substance is more cartilage, skeletal muscle, intestinal tissue, organ tissue, fat, blood vessels, and bone fragments than meat. And if you really want to see inside the food you're eating, here's some images and for $30 bucks, you can purchase the full medical study..

Scientists puzzled by lack of sunspots..

Philadelphia police investigate Instagram account that labels crime witnesses as rats..

Monsanto buys climate corp for $930 mil.

Fever: Beebs blame food poisoning for reason he walked off stage.
He was also booed by fans..

Lady Gaga will be first artist to perform in space...

Why some refuse to believe in the paranormal..

Games: 'PARANORMAL' has a frightening potential..

Painful protest: Artist Pyotr Pavlensky nails his testicles to Red Square!

A Welsh family is sick of living on Butt Hole Road. They are attempting to rename it Button Hole Road.
I myself like the Butt Hole part, maybe just rename if "Circle."

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 …

A dog eat dog afterlife

I read a somewhat moving article on HUFF PARANORMAL about a man who lost his pet dog.. In death, he sought to find the animal’s spirit.. His method was to use a smoke bomb and camera.. The author of the article is sure that he saw the face of his beloved deceased pet on the foggy image..
Before you laugh and mock, there’s two things to note.. First off, science can explain so much. But there’s a cutoff when science stops.. At least at this point. Logic may say that this image is just smoke within smoke.. For for the believer when faith, it’s something more. And science by no means can explain even a morsel of faith., And secondly– perhaps this would be more for pet owners– who didn’t lose an animal and feel the presence of that same beloved pet after death? And even more, I have known a handful of people that claimed per visitation from an afterlife.. In my own circumstance, I fondly remember seeing my dog Newt walk by my door. It was after he died. I had a witness– he saw it but years l…
