Weird Wednesday summaries

The headlines and developments from the planet earth and beyond..
Not much good. Look for the silver lining.
It's always a beautiful day to be alive, regardless of how wretched the surroundings may be. You're a part of a magical and weird mystery--a bizarre trail into the unknown. Paths that often go no where, and places that seem dark and dangerous. But you're alive to see it all. Count that as a gift. Or something.

Here's the news of concern today..

A breaking news event is taking place in a Pittsburgh area high school where there are reports of multiple stabbings.. they occurred right after the school opened.. Knives don't stab people. People stab people... One in custody..

There have been somewhat notable (MAYBE?) developments in that constant mystery being covered wall-to-wall by CNN: The black boxes are pinging. OR something is pinging.. Flight 370 may soon be found. If it's not too deep. Or even if it is deep. Somewhere. I am still at a point where I have come to terms with this story: I believe nothing. I don't believe any statement from officials, any word from government, or any news article from reporters. I believe nothing. Because everything I did believe was untrue..


20 years ago in Rwanda, hell on earth was unleashed.. hundreds of thousands were brutally hacked and killed with machetes.. now some more honest history is being revealed, including the chances that United States played a covert role in the plane crash that began the genocide.. 

Ebola news is getting scary.. it's being called the 'most serious' of outbreaks in a long time..
Ebola: Canada and the United States?


Hillary Clinton poses with PUSSY RIOT. 
Top that Rand Paul..
No word on whether Bill privately had a meeting.. Deposition to follow.

Relatives of a 9 MONTH OLD baby CHARGED WITH MURDER have taking the baby and gone into hiding. This story comes from Pakistan.. Beyond comparison.. a baby charged with murder..

Vegetarians are now being said to have a lower quality of life and LESS of it compared to meat eaters.... but remember this: The study still had the meat eaters eating lots of fruits and vegetables, too.. A clear sign that moderation is key and a balanced diet approach is the best.. Now I need to somehow tell my 3-year-old son the problems with a poptart and pizza diet.

The children of Fukushima begin school..


Just days after being inducted into the Wrestling Hall of Fame, the Ultimate Warrior, James Brian Hellwig, is dead..  He was 54--another body ravaged young by professional "fake" wrestling. I remember when I was a kid, that urban legend followed the Warrior around .. back then (and even now), it was said that the Ultimate Warrior did die and that there was a replacement Ultimate Warrior. I think it corresponded to a time when Hellwig got a shorter haircut and wore a little different face paint. But urban legends spread--and they did so even in a time when the Internet was only just a pipe dream of computer geeks.  The Warrior's entrance will not be forgotten..  And I don't think any fan will ever forget the famed body bag match with the Undertaker.. 

And interesting reincarnation report coming from Japan of a boy who has past-life memories.. 

Very interesting story from the UK DAILY MAIL.. Five writers recount scary stories to tell in the dark, and their weird stories of ghostly encounters.. 

The ultimate revenge: Women fills a rival's house with RATS after a fight with her boyfriend!

Dead twins found in Chattanooga home
Identical twins both found dead sitting in recliners--after 2 years! Neighbors thought they were just sating inside--the house was being kept and mail was not overflowing. But yet the two corpses sat decomposing for 2 years in the Tennessee home. But even with the fact that grass was being mowed for 2 years at a house with rotting corpses, cops are saying at this point that there is no evidence of foul play.. A story like this is proof of my contention that reality is much weirder and so often scarier than real life..

Intrigue in China: Where is Fan Bingbing

From CNN:

Fan Bingbing, one of China's highest-paid and most bankable stars, has appeared in both Chinese and Western films, including the multimillion-dollar X-Men franchise. Across the country, her face once adorned thousands of advertisements, her star power used to sell a galaxy of luxury brands, from Cartier to Louis Vuitton. She was a regular sight at major award shows and fashion ceremonies. In 2015, Time Magazine named her China's "most famous actress."  But the film star hasn't been seen in public since early June, when, according to a post on her verified social-media account, she went to visit a children's hospital in Tibet. In an article by state media Securities Daily on September 6, which was later deleted, the publication said Fan had been brought "under control and about to receive legal judgment." No official statement has been made as to Fan's whereabouts, or any potential criminal charges against the actress.  However, in a country …
