FREAKY FRIDAY: Whiskey in the Jar

The happenings..
The hell..
The highlights.
All in a week's end..

Here are the things and news events I am paying attention to .. maybe you should to. Or look away in fear..

Queen Elizabeth II meets Pope FrancisPHOTO: Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip exchange gifts with Pope Francis at the Paul VI Hall, April 3, 2014 in Vatican City, Vatican.
The Queen meets the Pope.. and the Queen actually was 20 minutes late! But I suppose her gift smoothed things over: A bottle of whiskey..

Pope Francis will be in 3D at the end of April in unprecedented ceremony.. 
Hologram world: MIA and Janelle Monae perform life in hologram duet..

Scientists say that Yellowstone will not erupt.. They are dismissing, especially, the videos purporting that bison have been 'running for their lives'.. And then there is this new information: The temperature at Yellowstone's lakes is +20C (above normal)..60 quakes were registered in the area with the increased water temperatures..

Scientists are also telling people now that the Ring of Fire quakes lately are not related..

Ebola has escaped its borders.. now suspected in Mali, where there suspected cases are now in isolation..

The Space Station had to dodge space junk--again.. And here on earth, a skydiver was doing his thing when a meteorite narrowly missed hitting him! Here is the video of the near hit. Clyde Lewis pointed out on his Facebook pagethat if a meteorite almost hit a man, he believes that a meteor may still be the blame for the missing flight 370.

This is big, big stuff: Cassini spacecraft has found evidence of subsurface water on Saturn's moon Enceladus.. With that there may be life--not beachgoers rocking to tunes on a sunny day, but microbes doing what they do best in running water.. We are not alone.

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…
