A cold and dreary Sunday morning sidewalk in a world of war. All the spaceships to safety have crashed

A view of the planet earth from a very cold Sunday morning sidewalk, with some flurries in the air and the chilled winds of winter blowing..

The fall of a potential empire already? The space program that could not get off the ground.. After the tragic crash this week of Richard Branson's space vehicle, his dreams for commercial space tourism is in doubt.. It's somewhat sad to see the crashing.. but it's also a part of the process to get to space. No one said it was going to be easy or safe.. Human beings should be busy attempting to expand off of the planet earth.. to go where no man has gone before.. to spread our wings and fly away.. This week, that new frontier seems unlikely.. and we see locked on a planet mired in hell and horror..

Chris Rock pushed the envelope last night on Saturday Night LIVE with jokes about the Boston bombing and 9/11.. While the media is rushing to condemn him and users on twitter are happily joining on that bandwagon, we will not.. the jokes were tame--he did at all mock the victims who perished, but instead make safe quips about each. He said this about the Boston bombing: "That was probably the most frightening, sadistic terrorist attack ever," he said, describing the strain on the competitors who run 26 miles. "Their knees are hurting, their feet are killing them. ... You've been training for a year, you finally get to the finish line, and somebody screams: 'Run!" On the new Freedom Tower in NYC, he said: "They should change the name from the Freedom Tower to the 'Never Going in There' Tower. Because I'm never going in there. There is no circumstance that will ever get me in that building. Are you kidding me? Who's the corporate sponsor, Target? I am never going in the Freedom Tower. I don't care if Scarlett Johansson is butt naked on the 89th floor in a plate of ribs." And with that controversy spilled over.. The monologue was awkward a bit, though.. some people, it would appear, didn't know of they should laugh or squirm.. But that is what comedy is for, to take us away from reality, to a new level, and provide humor and laughter in a dark world.. Joan Rivers made that point eleoquently when she dealt with a heckler at a Wisconsin act.. Rivers said that comedy is to make everybody laugh at everything 'and deal with things.' And that is absolutely true.. Since when did the United States become so offended by everything? At what point did we decide we were going to seek out the next offensive thing for us to decry, Tweet about, and 'boycott'? It's getting old, America.. getting very old indeed..
I support Chris Rock in this.. he did nothing wrong. Now as for SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE? My God that show needs new writers.. so awful..

America is big. Very big.. so what happens when a larger than average American gets into a traffic accident? Thanks to some larger crash test dummies, now we can find out before it actually happens.. That's right.. the dummies are being made to match the obese..

A very angry Lena Dunham lashes out at NATIONAL REVIEW after they accuse her of molesting her sister.. This story is a little graphic.. but the actual content is graphic..

ISIS continues its public executions and mass graves..45 Iraqi men were executed by the terror group and their dead corpses were displayed in public--and photos and videos were posted on the internet.. The executions came two days after the United States dropped food for the tribe of people being targeted by ISIS.. Even more disturbing to contemplate: Families being marched to their deaths..

Do wireless carriers intentionally slow internet speed? YES! I get a warning prior to them doing it warning me they are about to.. why is this question even being asked..

Static-X frontman Richard Wells is dead at 48.. The cause of death has not been disclosed at this time..

A court has ruled that FINGERPRINTS are not protected by the fifth amendment and that police can force people to unlock their phones..

Confusion in Ebolaland: The CDC has deleted a section of their website warning that sneezing can spread Ebola.. Gone now.. confusion reigns.. along with the confusion: Hospitals are now forced to prepare for a season where many will think they have Ebola but just have a flu. Or vice versa.. Scientists are predicting that up to 130 more cases of Ebola will be in the United States by the end of 2014.. Meanwhile: The CDC is busily preparing for ... something ... They posted a notice on FedBizOps for safe body bags..



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 …

A dog eat dog afterlife

I read a somewhat moving article on HUFF PARANORMAL about a man who lost his pet dog.. In death, he sought to find the animal’s spirit.. His method was to use a smoke bomb and camera.. The author of the article is sure that he saw the face of his beloved deceased pet on the foggy image..
Before you laugh and mock, there’s two things to note.. First off, science can explain so much. But there’s a cutoff when science stops.. At least at this point. Logic may say that this image is just smoke within smoke.. For for the believer when faith, it’s something more. And science by no means can explain even a morsel of faith., And secondly– perhaps this would be more for pet owners– who didn’t lose an animal and feel the presence of that same beloved pet after death? And even more, I have known a handful of people that claimed per visitation from an afterlife.. In my own circumstance, I fondly remember seeing my dog Newt walk by my door. It was after he died. I had a witness– he saw it but years l…
