Weird Wednesday: News from the world

WEDNESDAY JANUARY 29 2014

Yesterday, the HORROR REPORT wrote about something we called the potentially scariest exorcism story ever told.. I was researching online comments about the story of Latoya Ammons when I came across a Facebook post by the RAW STORY. They linked the story with a comment alluding to people believing in exorcisms but not climate change. The reactions from users was even crueler, with many mocking the woman's appearance and calling her mentally unstable. It reminded me of two things: I hate politics, especially when someone inserts a politically charged issue into something completely unrelated to it, and secondly: It amazes me that people cannot believe in BOTH supernatural events and natural events.. Why can't there be a compromise?

For those who feel as angry as me when people completely knock down anyone with a different, or Fortean belief, you're home here at the HORROR REPORT. People like you, me, and those who dare to think different or believe, perhaps, that the messages given to them for years in programming aren't real, can be comfortable on this site. We may mock the hell out of empty vessels like Justin Bieber, but we sure as hell won't knock a woman's character or story simply because of her makeup. No, Latoya Ammons, your story is safe with us. As for whether it's real? That's for our discernment. But you're not going to be made a fool of for telling it..

And now on to the news> The weird, the wild, and the wonderful..

A weird night in Claremore County in Oklahoma.. A loud explosion was heard on January 26 .. Police received calls from people thinking a bomb went off.. The noises were also heard in Rogers County in the same state.. Just more strange noises, loud booms.. bangs.. And oddities from the planet Earth. Something natural, perhaps.. something otherworldly ..? Maybe not. Either way it is creepy to hear on audio, I could not even imagine being a resident and waking to such a haunting, or heavenly, noise..

55 bodies found near former Florida reform school. Reuters reports this: "On a hillside in the rolling, tall-pine forests near the Alabama-Georgia border, a team of more than 50 searchers from nine agencies last year dug up the graves to check out local legends and family tales of boys, mostly black, who died or disappeared without explanation from the Dozier School for Boys early in the last century.The school, infamous for accounts of brutality told by former inmates, was closed by the state in 2011."

I did more research about this school, and everything I found was so horrendous.. so sad.. so depressing. Humanity at its worst.

Paging Paige: Done at the WWE

WWE’S PAIGE FORCED TO END WRESTLING CAREER

PWInsider reports that Paige was told at this past Monday’s RAW that she will not be able to return to the ring. It was noted that she is “done” as a wrestler, and that the situation is similar to Edge’s retirement in 2011 due to a neck injury…

Paige had just returned to WWE in late November after a seventeen month absence due to a neck injury she suffered in June of 2016. During her absence she suffered two Wellness policy suspensions.


Paige was injured during a house show at the Nassau Coliseum on Dec. 27 during a six-woman tag match. She was kicked in the back by Sasha Banks and struggled to get back to her feet after the bump.

FIRE AND FURY

The fake missile warning in Hawaii was scary for residents of that state .. 38 minutes of hell.

Scary for America more may be what ELIANA JOHNSON writes in POLITICO: A false warning of a missile threat in Hawaii sent White House aides scrambling Saturday, frantically phoning agencies to determine a response and triggering worries about their preparedness almost a year into the Trump administration. President Donald Trump’s Cabinet has yet to test formal plans for how to respond to a domestic missile attack, according to a senior administration official. John Kelly, while serving as Secretary of Homeland Security through last July, planned to conduct the exercise. But he left his post to become White House chief of staff before it was conducted, and acting secretary Elaine Duke never carried it out. The Old Cold War guard is gone. The newcomers can issue threats but appear to be unaware on how to act on them.. “The U.S. government hasn’t tested these plans in 30 years,” said the senior a…

There is water on Mars. There is not water on Mars. There is water on Mars.

A cross-section of underground ice is exposed at the steep slope that appears bright blue in this enhanced-color view from the HiRISE camera on NASA’s Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter. The scene is about 550 yards wide. The scarp drops about 140 yards from the level ground in the upper third of the image.Credits: NASA/JPL-Caltech/UA/USGS


This could be a game changer–and quite the about face since the past several months of news gathered have reinforced the notion that no water at all existed..

As reported in the journal Science (paywall), the water was found in both the north and south of Mars, at latitudes equivalent to South America and Scotland. The exposed areas were found on scarps as steep as 55 degrees. Based on the absence of craters in the regions, scientists believe that the features formed relatively recently.


“The discovery reported today gives us surprising windows where we can see right into these thick underground sheets of ice,” study co-author Shane Byrne of the University of…

FCC won’t let Trump’s shithole be

The FCC received complaints after NBC and CNN used the word “s—hole” in their coverage of the controversy over comments President Donald Trump reportedly made to lawmakers during a meeting about immigration.


An FCC spokesman said they received a “handful” of comments, but did not have an exact figure yet. The agency does not monitor programming, but reviews each complaint to decide whether to take any type of action.

CNN featured the term on its chyron, and it was also repeated on air multiple times. But the FCC’s jurisdiction over indecency and profanity does not cover cable and satellite programming.x

The word was used once on “NBC Nightly News,” but anchor Lester Holt issued a viewer warning in advance. CBS and ABC chose not to use the word.

The FCC considers a number of factors in whether to act on a complaint, including “context,” and that in the past has included whether it has been a part of news programming. Broadcasters are confident that they would be exempt for using the term i…

BIG ISLAND SCARE: THE DAY THE WORLD ALMOST ENDED IN HAWAII

THIS WARNING SOUNDED THROUGHOUT THE STATE TODAY:



Not only that, but warnings buzzed on TVs.. radios.. the horrid screeching noise when an emergency alert sounds.. 


CNN reports,

Jocelyn Azbell had just woken up in her Maui hotel Saturday when she was hurried into the hotel's basement to take shelter from an incoming ballistic missile.
"You're thinking, 'Oh my gosh, are we going to die? Is it really a missile (headed) our way, or is it just a test?'" the 24-year-old told CNN. "We really didn't know."
Minutes before, she'd received an ominous alert on her phone.
"BALLISTIC MISSILE THREAT INBOUND TO HAWAII. SEEK IMMEDIATE SHELTER. THIS IS NOT A DRILL."

Azbell, her boyfriend and hundreds of other hotel guests were "herded like cows" into the basement by staff. "People are crying and people obviously were super scared," she said.
For 20 minutes, Azbell said, they waited. Finally, they were told that the alert was a false ala…

THE FLU BOMB: KIDS GET BANNED FROM DETROIT HOSPITAL!

The worst flu since the early 2000s strikes he entire continental United States is experiencing widespread flu right now, the first time in the 13 years of the current tracking system that that has happened, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Officials said that this flu season is shaping up to be one of the worst in recent years. The rate of flu hospitalizations — the number of people hospitalized with flu per 100,000 — nearly doubled last week compared with the previous week. Last week it was 22.7 per 100,000 people; the week before that rate was 13.7. IT IS SO BAD..
THE KIDS ARE BANNED FROM GOING TO THE HOSPITAL!! All of that prompted metro Detroit's Beaumont hospital chain to take an unusual step Friday afternoon: banning visits from children under 13 until the flu season subsides. “We apologize for the inconvenience,” said a news release from Beaumont Health System, which operates eight major hospitals in southeast Michigan. “All Beaumont Health hospita…
