Robin Williams and the FAMILY GUY

By now you've most likely been sent a link to a video on YOUTUBE saying that the FAMILY GUY had a predictive programming episode and that the Illuminati killed Robin Williams. It's outlandish, and absurd..But it's still somewhat creepy to see how the story got its wings.

The BBC was airing a repeat episode of the FAMILY GUY, presumably around the same time on the planet that Robin Williams was cutting his wrists and placing a leather belt around his neck to kill himself..

The FAMILY GUY episode was 22 from season 10.. The story: Peter is outraged by a roast of Robin Williams on TV he thinks is too mean.. He eventually goes into a coma, and wakes up with the power to turn anyone he touches into Robin Williams. Then he gets angry at the number of Robin Williamses in the world so he attempts to kill himself by jumping off a cliff, but landing on Mrs. Doubtfire. He then cuts his hands off..

Now think of this: While people were undoubtedly laughing at the BBC airing of the episode, directly after it was over, the BBC cut in and said that the real Robin Williams, in real life on the real planet, killed himself..

The BBC was suddenly put into an awkward position and a spokesman had to conclude it was an uncanny coincidence that the show aired right before real news broke..

But it's certainly not the first time the FAMILY GUY seemed to be ahead of the curve.. Another strange moment of pop culture took place when the TURBAN COMBOY episode of the FAMILY GUY was a little too close for comfort to reality when the Boston Marathon bombing occurred in 2013..FOX pulled the show..

And now, this new incident of FAMILY GUY weirdness took place..

But certainly not predictive programming.. and certainly not Illuminati killings..

Robin Williams killed himself. Sometimes the truth is stranger than fiction--and sadder than a dark comedy.



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 …
