A case of the Mondays: Weather, banker suicides, Shai LeBouf, and more: So much scary. So little time.

MONDAY FEBRUARY 10 2014

A major case of the Mondays.. a major news dump to go along with it..

This is a world where chaos reigns supreme.. where goodness sometimes is much more silent that evil. And where war is everything but there's never a drop to drink.. Here's headlines and news bits from around the world--and beyond..

Politicians always famously call the United States a 'young nation' .. they say the best days are ahead.. they say we are bright and energetic. And they have obviously been ignoring the changing demographics.. The United States is increasingly aging and because of that it's heading for a disaster..

While very few in the world have given attention to the Central African Republic (let alone Africa), there are some major signs of chaos .. The latest in the lynching of a Christian man by Muslims.. the group of Muslims confronted him and threw him into a ditch before slitting his throat..


This is getting to be a little chilling--less like a mystery novel and more like a disaster movie.. If you've been following the HORROR REPORT, you know that there has been some very weird banker deaths over the past two weeks--London suicides and nail guns to the head.. Now this: Three deaths and a missing reporter are all tied to finance and Wall Street investigations.. And in one instance, concerning the 'suicide of Gabriel Magee (the banker who jumped off a building in London), his parents aren't buying it.. as a matter of fact they are going to London to find out how an employee obtains access to the rooftop of the most highly secure building in London.


Palmyra PA continues to be the sinkhole capitol of the state.. this time a sinkhole that opened severely damaged a business..


A world where we all wear stretchable and conformal electronics .. It's really not far away and we are being told the skin chips would be for 'peace of mind' .. While some may herald it as the mark of the beast, as with any form of technology, there will be benefits. The cost-benefit calculation should be done, though.. because the mark of the beast angle may far outweigh the goodness that comes with skin implantable chip devices..

I remember listening to Ian Punnett on Coast to Coast AM had a few shows on the Smiley Face killers.. (The term given to a series of strange deaths of college males, the term 'smiley face killers' was later disregarded as something not having anything to do with the deaths) .. I recalled those shows when I read the headline about a missing Ohio college student named David Hallman III ..he was found in Erie, Pennsylvania, frozen to death. the report indicated that he fell asleep outside.. That I found eerie over the Erie find was this: While he was not found near water, as the deaths of the Punnett shows documented, he was a member of the college swimming team.. For some reason that just struck me. And God or collective consciousness be with the family now grieving his loss..


If you're not sick of the winter yet in the Northeast, you may just about to grab some plane tickets and quickly leave your state.. A few weather sites, including The Weather Space, seem to be talking about a March 1993-like super storm set to ravage the East Coast.. The storm is set to bring dangerous ice.. Major weather website have yet to predict such a disastrous monster blizzard, but the chances seem to be increasing for a snowstorm for lots of people. Like millions of them.

The power outages in Pennsylvania could last several more days..


It's not just the United States. . Britain has been bashed by yet another hurricane-like storm from the Atlantic.. It is so bad, the Thames has reached record levels and the levels of flooding are being called biblical.. Prime Minister Cameron is stunned as he wades through high waters..


More from Britain:
Cameron sorry for failures in wake of storm..
Villages along the Thames swamped..
Downing Street looks to calm controversy..
More weather warnings..


FLOPPPY BIRD:
The life and death of Flappy Bird..
TELEGRAPH asks: Are video games becoming more idiotic?
A 'love hate relationship' with Flappy Bird..
Nintendo says no complaints about Flappy Bird. But the game was pulled off of the APP store Sunday regardless..


Yesterday the HORROR REPORT told you that Shia LeBouf said some odd things are a press conference for his movie.. And then later during the screening of his film, he showed up with a bag over his head saying "I AM NOT FAMOUS ANYMORE" ..

TOAST TO TOAST AM:
Dave Schrader takes to BELLGAB to defend himself..
John B. Wells issues another video apology for the failures of caravan to Midnight..


Strong build: LEGO MOVIE runs wild at box office and becomes exceptionally successful, much to the surprise of some who never thought it could happen...

Will Smith will not star in INDEPENDENCE DAY sequel..

Because it's something you wanted to know but never could ask.. The world now knows that Slash's favorite horror movie was the OMEN. Not the sequel. The real one..

And a special thanks to the new followers on FACEBOOK, all the messages and comments, and all the love. Back at you, cruel world.. Stay tuned for more..

THE MOST POPULAR POSTS ON THE HORROR REPORT IN THE LAST WEEK

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…

THE UNLUCK OF THE IRISH: TROPICAL STORM MAY HIT IRELAND!!

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 …
