Ruling by fear: Reality TV style

Move over Honey Boo Boo. Reality TV in China just got real..
As the LA TIMES reports:

Chinese state television Friday broadcast live images of the last moments of four foreign drug traffickers who were about to be executed for the 2011 killings of 13 Chinese fishermen on the Mekong River. Although the cameras pulled away before the lethal injections, the coverage was unprecedented, unleashing a storm of criticism and debate about the death penalty.
Psychologists decried the coverage as distressing to children. Lawyers complained that it violated a clause in the criminal code against parading the condemned before execution.

The sinkhole story from Florida has a tragic story

I heard someone making jokes today about the sinkhole that swallowed Jeff Bush in his bedroom in Seffner, Florida.. The story is disturbing, but someone making light of a horrid situation like this may be worse..

Sinkhole are a big story around the world. The media typically pays little attention to them, but they happen .. a lot. And increasingly, as some websites have reported, there seems to be an altogether weakening of the earth's crust below us.

This sinkhole situation in Florida isn't the typical one.. this time, someone most likely died in the event. And also this time, as opposed to the typical reporting we get, the media is paying attention and giving us more information than usual. Maybe for ratings? Maybe because there is a human tragedy? Maybe because, after all the ignorance to the earth's changes, people are finally becoming rattled by the shaky ground beneath them..

A tale of true horror in Florida

This is a follow up to this morning's post about the sinkhole that swallowed up a man in his bedroom in Florida.. This DAILY MAIL story paints the human side of this horror.. it details the desperate attempt to save the man at the wrong place and time, and describes that he was heard screaming as the earth swallowed him..

Horribly disturbing and truly sad.. Prayers can only be with the family and friends in this circumstance..

Arizona boom

If it is not sinkholes its booms.. A loud boom (some report more than one) was heard in Arizona.. Law enforcement has no answers.. Media has no comments from officials saying they know where it was from or what it was..

Just more examples of these noises happening all throughout the United States..

Incidentally, Linda Howe was on Coast to Coast AM last night with someone who believes he has answers to the nationwide boom question: Weapons testing.
No comment from me on the veracity of that belief.. But I know the noises are all over--even close to Horror Report home base as I reported a few days ago, when a loud boom shook several neighborhoods on Northern Schuylkill County, PA..

Sinkhole in Florida swallows man in his bedroom

This story is true.. So often I'm accused of embellishing or purely making things up..

Here is the CNN article you can read on the developing sinkhole ..A quote from the article for the permanent record: (CNN) - A 36-year-old man disappeared Thursday night when a sinkhole opened up under his bedroom in Florida, swallowing him as his brother tried to rescue him, authorities said.

Right after the ground started to give way in his home in Brandon, his brother frantically tried to keep him from sinking into the hole, an emergency official said.

The first deputy on the scene pulled the victim's brother from the edge of the growing chasm, said Jessica Damico, a spokeswoman for the Hillsborough County Fire Rescue.

Authorities have been unable to contact the man as the sinkhole expanded. The house was deemed unsafe for rescuers, Damico said.

Late Thursday night, the hole was about 100 feet wide and still growing, authorities said.

Area homes have been evacuated.

A horse of course .. In the US of course

Some people have denied the chances of horse meat actively being eaten in the United States.
Maybe you thought that way too.. Or still do. Until you read this New York Times article about how horse meat does travel through the US.. The Times reports: As concerns over horse meat infiltrating products labeled ground beef grows among American consumers, an advocacy group released shipping documents showing that horse meat does pass through at least one United States port on its way from slaughterhouses in Mexico to destinations in Europe.How about that can of meat.. Or that schoo lunch.. Or the mystery meat you assumed was cow. Maybe the ney is growing louder for you now..

Two suns are better than one

Wait.. TWO SUNS!?



Are we seeing an optical illusion!? Are we seeing a moon and the sun? Are we seeing two suns!?

We may be all getting duped by strange and fake YouTube videos supposedly of ordinary world citizens filming two suns in the sky.. I'd have to see it to believe it. But I don't want to. And seeing it on video, even if it's fake Youtubers showing it, creeps me out and chills me to my core.

If I only knew someone from the Hopi tribe.. I'd be meeting with them over coffee today. Maybe some whiskey too.

The Chinese rockets red glare over East Texas

There have been a number of strange objects in the sky lately, but .. a Chinese rockets over the United States!?

Nah..
Call me crazy.

Until you read THIS from KLTV .. A woman saw some bright lights in the sky. It turned out to be a Chinese rocket falling to the earth over East Texas.
Nothing to fear.. the Communists have not declared war on us *(officially)* but this ranks up there with the strange occurrences happening across the world.. If it's not satellites from North Korea falling, it's meteors and asteroids.
Oh my.

Glory of the Olives gone: The Papal Countdown is here

A friend of mine continues to send truly hilarious text messages about Pope Benedict, "Petrus Romanus" and the conclave coming up to choose the 112th pope in Malachy's prophecy. I would use them as headlines but they are a little too .. out there. Perhaps I'll share them in the coming days, simply for the humor value..

Today is Pope Benedict's last day wearing the red prada shoes as the infallible one. He will step down .. and the gears get set into motion to choose the next. You can follow events of his departure on news sources around the world today.

But what is not being reported?
There were rumors last week that an unnamed European country wanted to issue an arrest order for Ratzinger and others involved with sex scandals.. then the report surfaced implicating cardinals in the Vatican of being involved with gay sex.. Last year the Vatican imprisoned the Pope's butler for sharing classified information--and some of that involves drug money in the Vatican ban…

The strange booms are hitting close to home.. Maybe this one is a coal mine blast gone wrong? (Or right)

I live in Schuylkill County Pennsylvania, that is the homebase of this website.. And it is now the site of the latest strange boom being heard in the world.. Below is a screenshot of a Facebook page I follow locally:


There are no answers yet, and most likely will not be answers that make any sense.. These booms are happening all over the place along with strange rumblings and shaking..

There are some suggestions on numerous Facebook posts today that the blast here in my home county is a result of a mining blasting that is going on. I guess that is probably the best and most sensible explanation, or is it?

While there is probably no connection, keep in mind there was an earthquake in Oklahoma today and a relatively strong 5.1 off the coast of Oregon only a short time ago..

Is the earth in a meteor swarm?
The meteor that hit Russia had an origin--and now scientists are reconstructing the path it was on.. The interesting thing is that while the earth was watching the asteroid fly 17,000 miles by the planet, a meteor with many times the size of Hiroshima almost hit--and if it would have exploded closer to the ground or on the ground, there would have been an extinction event for millions of people.. Don't forget the nuclear plants and government facilities that exist near the city of Chelyabinsk--the media didn't care much and mostly made light of the situation. . . This time.
Chinese hackers keep getting better and better..
"Monster" GMO salmon found in Chinese waters..
TODAY SHOW: Michelle Obama's 'charm offensive' draws criticism.. Is she just too much 'everywhere'?
Intrigue in Idaho: Large booms reported.. was it an airplane?
Scientists have linked extreme weather to giant atmospheric waves..

Oscar warp: The year of the shrug

My friend at the CINEMA PSYCHO has some thoughts on this year's Oscar telecast..

Among his points: The show itself, however, I thought was a giant disaster from start to finish. It’s almost like they were trying to do the worst possible show they could, full of gaffes and mistakes and really bad jokes. It made me nostalgic for Whoopi Goldberg as host.Read more ..
