A case of the Mondays

Mondays have such a bad rap.. There are songs about how bad they are.. there are weekends that make them bad..But Tuesday should be just as bad, if not worse.. it doesn't solve any problems of Monday, but only amplifies them. In all honestly, I have long thought that Thursdays were the best day of the week. I decided this in the late 1990s. I actually think my decision was biased. I enjoyed Seinfeld and ER on Thursdays..So maybe those two TV shows forever influenced my decision to make that day the best of the week. And  think: Some people love Friday. But when it's Friday, it's a day closer to Monday and the anticipation is over. Thursday is the day of anticipation...Just like Christmas eve or the day before Thanksgiving. As humans, we enjoy looking forward to something much more than actually doing it..

And on that note: The news  of the day.
News that I don't look forward to even typing about. So let's get this over with now:

The HORROR REPORT and various other sourcereported

The HORROR REPORT a various other sources reported some troubling news recently about the beheading of an elderly woman in the UK.. And now this news: Another person, this one a disabled elderly Londoner, had his throat slashed.. It was potentially a beheading attempt --and the third one in weeks..

New studies point to brain injuries being the root cause of autism.. could might be that dysfunction within the cerebellum at crucial moments in development that lead to autism. The doctor who did the study says it all happens when the brain gets injured in the womb.. But what about those brains of children that seem to develop fine for a while.. children smile, learn, and even talk. And then around, oh say 15 months (or an MMR vaccine), and the immediate regressing begins? And food for thought: Vaccine injury funds often go to helping children who had brain injuries ..

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 …

The interesting tale of Joe Weller's sex prank line getting haunted

Joe Weller’s sex line prank video was seen by more than 2.5 million people when it was posted back in March.

It involved Joe trolling alleged sex workers over the phone – but some viewers spotted something creepy happening.
In the background, a piece of gym equipment with a handle begins to swing back and forward.

“It continues to swing in a way that if someone pushed it, it would have stopped,” he said in a recent video addressing the claims.
