Sepsis can’t keep him down: Knapp speaks

About a week ago, I posted a quick update on what I knew of George Knapp, ace reporter and Coast to Coast AM part time host.. Then, I said he had sepsis and it nearly killed him. Last night, Knapp took to Facebook to explain more in-depth his personal life (something out of the ordinary for him, he typically keeps his personal personal) .. Knapp wrote, 

I returned to the TV airwaves tonight for the first time in a month. I would not normally talk about private stuff in a public setting like this one, but wanted to say thanks to all of those who sent messages of support over the past weeks. 
Back in early December, I came down with something called sepsis, a blood infection, and it damned near did me in. If my wife hadn’t managed to get a doctor to prescribe some meds without actually seeing me, I would not be here to talk about it. Had to cancel several radio shows and newspaper columns, along with assorted I Team stories we were working on but am now back on the job, appreciative of all the kind words sent to me by people who figured out that something was amiss.
Anyone who had sepsis or knows  of its effects can testify to what Knapp said: It is so often deadly.. 
Thank God he’s still here—not just because he reports in a fair and accurate manner and had some amazing Coast to Coast AM shows—but because he seems like a genuine great guy.. 
Thanks to Mrs. Knapp for doing what she did.. 
And hopefully we will hear him again soon on a national radio program late in the night..



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 …

The interesting tale of Joe Weller's sex prank line getting haunted

Joe Weller’s sex line prank video was seen by more than 2.5 million people when it was posted back in March.

It involved Joe trolling alleged sex workers over the phone – but some viewers spotted something creepy happening.
In the background, a piece of gym equipment with a handle begins to swing back and forward.

“It continues to swing in a way that if someone pushed it, it would have stopped,” he said in a recent video addressing the claims.
