Any news update with a Swiss cheese pervert has to be seen. But there's lots more on this Freaky Friday, too


A sampling of things from bad to worse.

The Discovery Channel tells people not to worry about Fukushima radiation.. Clyde Lewis points out "The Discovery Channel which is owned by NBC Universal which has had a relationship with General Electric, which is the company which built the Fukushima reactor says stop worrying about Fukushima radiation ... this is sad comedy"

A bay in Norway got so cold that it froze fish while they were swimming..

Dangerously high methane levels have been detected in Washington DC.. There are apparently a dozen manholes with gas levels high enough that they could explode.. They are most common in the district's oldest neighborhoods.. There's most likely no fear in Congress, the only thing that blows there is hot air..

South Carolina: DHEC Confirms Nuclear Plume Moving Off Barnwell Site, radiation is in the ground water..

A fault line taht could make Hollywood tumble..

How we know the earth is moving through space..

The experiment that changed reality: WIRED explains..

Every time another planet discovery is announced, I question how long until we find the alternate versions of us? How long until we see that we're just being replicated in the galaxy, a mass computer system of simulations. The matrix.. All that. Until then, we only have stories like this--equally amazing nonetheless: First exoplanet orbiting Sun's twin in star cluster found, scientists say.. Yea that's cool too..

UNITED set to furlough up to 700 flight attendants..

Google set to make 'smart' contact lenses. But they will only be as smart as the owner..people will still forget they have them in causing infections, and they'll also drop them or get them stuck in their forehead. It never fails..

Landmark case has been thrown out of court! A Google Glass tester was ticketed for wearing the device while driving.. The case has been watched and now, accordingly, has been thrown out of court..

Black Friday: JC Pennys and Macys among big stores that are announcing big closings.. One store, JC Penny's, is near me at the Laurel Mall in Hazleton, PA. It is amazing how big of spaces are developing in malls around the country.. being replaced with dollar stores and pawn shops.

Execution in Ohio: Witnesses say Dennis McGuire snorted and struggled to breathe during his nearly 25 minute long execution. Lawyers for the convicted rapist had argued that the method of execution would put him at a risk of unusual agony and terror. The death has been called horrific. I am not a real big fan of capital punishment, maybe that's the Catholic education I had.. nonetheless, if we're going to do it, do we want this much pain and suffering? Really.. why not just do the Kim Jong Un way and feed them to dogs? Or the old fashioned way and make the lions ravage him? I am not in a position to judge anyone in a family who lost a loved one and seeks the death penalty as retribution for a crime. But I am in a position, as any other human being is, to say that if we're going to have this type of government sanctioned killing, let's do it as fast as we can and not have someone struggle for 25 minutes dying.. Come on John Kasich, can't you do something sensible here? I just had to say my peace.

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…
