Another wild week almost over..

...but it ain't over til it's over.
And there's plenty more time for the unusual, the strange, or the bizarre to take center.
A news update from the world and beyond, condensed and molded into a Thursday morning coffee session read. For your pleasure.

This is not news of the strange but it's news of the bad: At this point now, half of the United States makes less than $27,000 a year .. There is that troubling economic reality, along with 15 other signs brought to you by the never positive ECONOMIC COLLAPSE BLOG worth reading to believing..  The 'great recession' was a depression and there's little evidence I can see to say we're out of it.

A camp for boys that allows them to be girls has been photo documented by SLATE.. Three year olds wearing heals and wearing makeup..  The camp does not define itself as gay or transgender, but is being proclaimed as a sign of the future.. the death of sexual identity and the merging together of both genders into one..
What I say: the makers of the world actually want transhumanism. Anything they can get to accomplish that goal will work for them. I believe all people regardless of size shape sex or secrets should be given basic forms of respect.. I frankly could care less who wants to get married or who wants a sex change. But a three-year-old knowing they were born the wrong gender? I question the parents more than the ethics of allowing a child to decide.. did the parents coerce, or decide for them?  I also say: The death of a civilization is upon us. No, not because of dying morals--you can't look at the Christian crusades and tell me they were anything less than satanic--but because of dying birth rates. Really.  US birth rates are a record low.. Hell, even teen birth rates are, too.. Look to Japan to see how cultures can evolve: Younger people there have stopped having sex and the adult population has decided to wear diapers everywhere. In Russia, Vlad the Impaler Putin was telling people to say home for a national day of sex. It's not the moral collapse.. there never were really morals anyway.. it's the changing scientific reality .. Transhumanism is coming.. The merging of genders is first. The merging of human with machine is eventual..

Not sure what to make of this.. A replica of Van Gogh's ear has been created from live cells.  SO take that..whoever wants is.

This sounds like the plot of a horror movie or even the perfect blind date for Willard.. A 'rat girl' bred thousands of rats and let them loose into San Francisco..  The 43-year-old woman is being blamed for a city wide crisis of rodents and a plague of rats with diseases..

Is this where we want to go with science? The erasing of memories? Scientists have proclaimed to have done it with rats! Would humans be next? Are we already? It would almost make me wonder if Alzheimer's is a manmade disease!? Certainly that sound far-fetched, but so does the actual news of science erasing the memories in the brain of a rat.. So there you go: erase your painful memories. Also.. the good ones.. also all of them. Just be a vacant vessel of nothing, where human emotion is meaningless and the purpose of life is lost. That's the future if we erase memories.. Memories are meant to be shared, had.. and often lamented. And yes, painful memories should serve a purpose, too. A witness who sees a murder and then can't remember it in court is pointless.. or even scarier, a woman who is given a date rate drug that erases the memory of the rape.. don't tell me rapists wouldn't want to get their disgusting hands on that serum..

There have been a number of examples lately of life imitating the plot of a gruesome horror flick.. the latest example of that comes from the Australia where a 35-year-old man is on trial for brandishing a chainsaw and chasing government employees around .. He was reportedly bullied by co-workers at the Department of Human Services in Greenway. His choice of revenge was to get a chainsaw and chase around the bullying bureaucrats..  No one was hurt. The man's defense: He wanted to make others afraid..

Cannes Horror Hit 'It Follows' Lands U.S. Distribution Deal From Radius
A real horror movie (not reality) news: A Cannes horror movie IT FOLLOWS has secured United States distribution.  The movie is centered on a teenager who is plagued by scary visions and the sense something is following her after she has a sexual encounter. The movie reportedly has a 'haunting evocation of adolescent anxiety and yearning.' I like that saying..  Some more people are saying it will be the best independent horror film in a decade..

Justin Bieber is finding himself embroiled in a new career challenge: His over-abundant use of the N word during his mid-teenage years. Back when everyone thought he was cute and Christian, the soon to be star was yuck yucking it up making jokes at the expense of black people .. His latest embarrassment is singing 'one less lonely N----' .. Beeb's team actually released this one. TMZ reports that Bieber showed these videos to Will Smith and Usher a year ago. Apparently a lot of these videos exist and someone has been trying to extort the boy wonder .. Now Beeb is fighting back: He will release his racist rants himself, I suppose.

Someone is nervous about something.. Monsanto is threatening to sue VERMONT for its crime against corporations. The fine people of the state may actually have the nerve to label GMO foods! They may actually commit the atrocity of giving consumers knowledge about what they are buying. And for that, Monsanto will become the empire that strikes back..

QUICK HITS:
A string of mistakes could mark the end of SEARS..

Southwest caught advertising cheap flights--that never existed..

Texas man dead of MAD COW DISEASE..

A medical mystery remains: Why do people --and animals--get hiccups?

And finally at this moment, I am sure by now in life you've heard of that old tale that ET was originally going to be a horror flick. It's true.. The movie was going to be called NIGHT SKIES and was going to feature aliens that could kill each other with the tips of their fingers.. And now images of how ET was going to look proves that NIGHT SKIES would have been a pretty freaky story..

THE MOST POPULAR POSTS ON THE HORROR REPORT IN THE LAST WEEK

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…

THE UNLUCK OF THE IRISH: TROPICAL STORM MAY HIT IRELAND!!

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 …
