I read the news today oh boy

Too strange to believe: Did kitty litter cause a radiation leak!? A sign that ‘green kitty litter’ may not be the best idea..
Drink it while you got it: Coffee production may drop 40% as fungus spreads.. And speaking of the fungus among us, another fungus is decimating the banana industry around the world.. If you ask me, no better time than the present to really amp up ‘vertical farming’..
SO much for that old question: “TOO SOON?” Missing flight 370 may never be found, but money will be: Cannes movie makers are gearing up (and gaining controversy and attention) with plans for a movie called “THE VANISHING ACT”, a thriller based off of the missing Malaysian plane..
An Arizona town is literally running out of water .. and all the while we continue to dry up rivers just to water grass in the capital of in and sex, Las Vegas..
The industry can HEAR THEM.. AT&T buys DirecTV for $48 billion. Now I don’t feel that bad about paying my phone bill late last month..
Bieber parties with Paris and now he has the chance so many other 19-year-olds never will: To do commercials for HUSTLER..
Dan Aykroyd backs Scotland’s first paranormal festival.. I always thought Aykroyd should have taken over for Art Bell when he left Coast to Coast AM..



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 …
