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..

MOST READ HORROR REPORTS THIS WEEK

AIN'T THAT AMERICA

New Year's Eve.. Rockin' without Dick Clark in '13

Welcome to the final minutes of the year 2012. Yes. Already. It was so looked forward to, and it is ending so quickly...

It's minus Dick Clark this year, though. And that is notable. Fergie is showering ABC viewers tonight in the pre-game with Dick Clark related footage. Donna Summers is playing while the Doors are swaying. Yes, it's a stroll down amnesia lane in the fast lane. Dick Clarkless 2013. No countdown with the master of Times Square this year.

The show goes on, of course. With Ryan Seacrest to help. Before Seacrest will be 'out' there will be a number of events that occur. A massive ball will drop in Times Square. Revelers will kiss their hearts out.. then race for port-a-potties and their hotel rooms. Maybe stop by a pub and have a cup of cheer..

All around the world, the events are taking place. Some places on Earth are already 2013. The Pope will have a homily about how peace could be achieved. Fireworks will fly high into the night sky.. People will embrace …

Neve Campbell laments her post-SCREAM life: I was constantly being offered horror films, because I was known for horror films, or bad romantic comedies

Neve Campbell Confirms Her 'Scream' Notoriety Inspired Her Decision to Leave Hollywood »

“I needed a minute. In my 20s, it all hit so fast and so big that it was a little overwhelming,” Campbell shared on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. “Wonderful, obviously, and I’m very grateful for it, but it got to a level, also, where the kinds of things that I was being offered were not the things I wanted to do. I was constantly being offered horror films, because I was known for horror films, or bad romantic comedies.”

And this week she will be jumping out of building with the Rock in theaters ..

All 'scream queens' have gone through a period of confusion, denial.. acceptance. And now for Jamie Lee Curtis 40 years after her introduction to movies via being chased by killer Michael Myers, she is back for a final round.. 
Just as Campbell came home for the final SCREAM..
