TWAS THE DAY AFTER HALLOWEEN. And that doesn't mean the world is not still scary



ALL HALLOW'S EVE has ended.. Trick or treat night ended up being rainy for little Ayden.. the dark side of the night actually became intensified--it was like the ancient Celts were right .. I felt a thin vale slowly lifting for a bit as the wind and rain poured down over streets vaguely light by night lights and glowing orange Halloween decor.. But the night, as things go, is over. Quickly.. And now we march as a civilization into the other season. In America, Thanksgiving. And across the world; Christmas. Santa Claus is putting away the Halloween mask and warming up the sleigh.. His slave labor camp is going into high gear.. Elves' breaks are stopping. Hope he put the suicide nets outside of the North Pole.
Onto Christmas we go, world!
For better or worse.

Happy holidays: Deep cuts to food stamp program starts now. It may be brutal for some.. How it will affect your state.. Yes, indeed.. Congress beats up on the weak before their several weeks off from work.

A new report about Obamacare shows just how bad the website is.. in a nation of million of uninsured people, only six people signed up on day one of Obamacare, and only a few hundred the next day. The numbers are coming as a shock--and most likely numbers that have not improved since those opening days..

Time to start shopping: Obama tells people who lost their health plans to pick themselves up by the bootstraps, log on and try to get to when it works, and get a new plan. America!

While preppers may be reader, will their kids!? It's a logical question that some parents of tech-addicted teenagers are asking.. A website is asking the question: How will your teen act when the SHTF?

One thing that kids may NOT be able to do when the fecal matter is thrown into the wind, at least in New York State: Buy smokes. New York is raising the legal age to purchase tobacco to age 21..

War, peace, and H20: It's all going to come to a head.. WORLD AFFAIRS details that very notion in a new issue, arguing that climate chance is nothing when compared to the coming water wars on Earth and 'water refugees' roaming the dry land.. British media reports that the circumstances of water use may be so sire that now water companies are beginning to take notice of the scarcity.. But reports aren't stop some leaders from making strange choices, such as Harper from Canada selling the fresh water supply to a French company.. NESTLE has been called the world's worst 'water predator.' Comments from CEO Peter Brabeck, commenting that water should NOT be a right, surely doesn't help the corporate cause. Stay hydrated.

A clown was hit by lightning two times in one day--and he plans on going to church more often.. I guess that may be a logical step after being hit by lightning twice in one day. I'd prefer him just stop being a clown, though, and we can call it even..

This story absolutely amazed me.. Kepler has found an 'impossible world.' "Impossible" because a rocky exoplanet that swelters in extreme heat really should not be present in a location with tight orbit.. Too cool. So many things that we meager humans simply don't, can't, and never will understand.

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 …
