Case of the Mondays.. fear of the Tuesdays and wish it was Sunday

You may have seen this article before, or the concept of it: Toys that are made so much more valuable after many years because they were never opened from their original packages. In this case, 18 MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE toys worth hundreds of dollars each if they maintain themselves in their cardboard casings from the 1980s. But I think back.. there'd certainly be no way as a child I would have chosen to NOT open these toys.. and even more, what'st he point? Sure, there's monetary value now on them, but.. the endless hours and rivalries on my bedroom floor that I imagined would have been nonexistent. And that's completely worthless...
So raise a glass and toast the kids who open their toys, lose the pieces, and break off the heads! At least they had some fun and realized the true purpose in life.. and as for the others? Well.. I guess they're a little wealthier than the ones who have toys without heads..

Now onto the news. Which has some form of value.. and anguish.

Chaos and crisis all weekend in Ukraine.. And today Speaker Oleksandr Turchynov named interim president.. The rest of the government is collapsing or arrest warrants for officials are being issued..  But now there are concerns that Ukraine's treasury is empty.. And it's 'hoping' for billions in aid from the EU. And a revolution will then equal interest rates higher than the oldest trees on earth. The devil's in the details.. when you make a deal with the devil.

There's a controversy brewing in Britain as plans are revealed to dig up 350,000 bodies in historic London for a Muslim burial site..

Recent Caribbean earthquakes are sparking concern that a bigger one is coming.. In the article about the shaking, Accuweather points out one historic fact that hopefully will not get repeated: "One of the most infamous occurred in 1692 when a 7.5-magnitude quake dismantled the city of Port Royal, Jamaica. Much of the city was submerged under water, and thousands of people lost their lives."

The Catholic Church is now coordinating an effort in the United States to have a 'comprehensive' exorcist policy.. and they've also chosen 50 priests to undergo training..

Take a deep breath.. or don't! Roundup Weedkiller is being found in 75% of air and rain samples according to a government survey!  It has increased significantly since 1995.. And that brings up another salient point: Studies have introduced the concept and possibility that autism has increased due to the increase of pesticides being used. And while the rate of autism has increased due to better screening, it is clear that it has also seemingly increased in actual cases too.. A graphic also shows the rates of autism since 1996 through 2007.. There are differences, as you know, between correlation and causation. Could it be just unrelated that pesticides have increased so much at the same time autism did? And sure.. GMO companies surely would never make a substance that would kill, they only want to help. Right? Oh.. Agent Orange. Sorry..

Monsanto wants to 'save the honeybees' (and its reputation for after being accused for years of killing them)

Your public servants at work: Cop harasses photographer, steals his cell phone, and THEN TRIES to get YouTube to pull the video..

This is a creepy video to start your Monday (give it a bit of time until it shows its value) People are vanishing into thin air.. If you follow these sorts of things you probably already know about these stories or have read the book MISSING 411.. The video shows reports about missing person cases that never get solved--George Knapp's interesting reports about missing people and David Paulides in national parks are showcased in the video..

Another mystery that just keeps getting weirder: All of the bankers dying in really odd ways.. Conspiracy theories question what the banker 'suicides' may be foretelling..  But to others it raises the question about the sustainability of the system.. 

Polio-like illness found in children in California.. 

Eli Roth to direct new horror film KNOCK KNOCK .. the budget is $10 mil, and filming starts in April. AINT IT COOL has the scoop on the plot, reporting that it will feature two predatory young girls seducing an older man.. 

Netflix reaches streaming traffic agreement with Comcast..   It will be paying Comcast for faster web access.. What does that mean for your monthly charge?

Miley Cyrus Stages Scandalous Bill Clinton-Monica Lewinsky Moment During Concert (Video)
Her's concert's like a wrecking ball.. Miley Cyrus is desperate to stay relevant (and obviously Googled "1990s + Bill Clinton) .. She is staging a Bill Clinton/Monica Lewinsky moment during her song PARTY IN THE USA.. You can read more about it here if you'd like..  But I wonder, what will this do for Hillary's plans to run in 2016..?

I'm not done yet!

Miley Cyrus and Katy Perry in Los Angeles on February 22, 2014.
Another story from Miley's BANGERZ TOUR.. she is making out with Katy Perry. We know already that Katy has successful sold her soul to the devil long ago.. Miley is just clumsily trying to do the same. 



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 …


Real news has become surreal.. I find many headlines of our current day to relate back to THE STAND.. I know the comparison is a little fuzzy, and my overdoing it may be annoying to some. But when the strange similarities to me are striking.. The STAND starts in Texas. And in real life Texas is the center stage for the Ebola scare. And even worse, the endless stories of people 'coming back to life' are getting bizarre--though we can assume that parts of Africa cannot truly pinpoint the cause of death, so somene coming back to life is moot: The person probably wasn't dead. At least we hope they weren't.. Though SNOPES can tell us it's a hoax, try to explain the high strangeness of ABC NEWS filming a dead man and suddenly seeing him moving..

Continuing to the real news of the day (though it seems like fiction half of the time), focus is now turning on how Thomas Duncan got inot the United States. The Washington POST is giving us an hour by hour synopsis of what happen…
