Horror in China as over 100 stabbed in mass knife incident

We know this: At least 28 killed and 113 injured when knife-wielding men stormed Kunming Railway Station in southwest Yunnan province.

More information according to reports: During the mass stabbing attack, there were several men wearing all black who rushed the train station and began to reportedly stab anyone they saw..

There are images circulating online which purport to show mangled and stabbed body laying dead on the ground in the station.. I am choosing not to publish these for two reasons, number one being that they could be fake and number two being that they are extremely tacky and personal to show the mangled corpses left at bioterror attack. Other websites are showing gruesome imagery..

More reports indicate that some of the men were shot dead by police, the others are still being tracked down.

This is one of the deadliest my contacts in China in the last several years.

At this point no motive has been translated to authorities but there is a horrific and gruesome scene playing out in real time.



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 …
