MAKING A MOEHILL OUT OF THE MUNDANE

The very normal and random act of a cup falling down off of the sink today caused me a little concern until I contemplated what had just occurred.

I was moving from one room to the next when I placed the cup on the edge of the bathroom sink. I left the room for a split second and thought to myself, “that coup is going to fall” ..

And that it did.

I went back into the room, wiped up the coffee which had fallen from the cup onto the floor, and checked the mug for any potential breaks. This was a very special mug after all, it was my Batman Father’s Day hero cup given to me the first year my son was alive..

After cleaning up and leaving the room, I stopped to think back as to what just happened.

Quite literally, I even retrace my steps. I went back into the room and realized where the cup markings had been, as we know coffee cups often leave a stain outline of where the its put down.

What I realized was astonishing. There should be no logical way the cup would’ve fallen off of the sink judging from the markings of where it was but I placed it down. It was literally inches away from the edge, but yet somehow when I left the room the mug had fallen down from the location.

My mind is boggled, and it continues to be so. I continue to rehash the scene in my mind over and over again and wonder if somehow perhaps as I was leaving the room I didn’t quite unhand the cup fully from my fingers and shifted it towards the edge too much, allowing it to gracefully fall from the sink onto the floor below.

Even stranger I thought, why did I think the cup would fall before it did? Did I create this action by my thoughts? Or, did I subconsciously make the cup fall down by moving it towards the edge of the sink, and somehow convincing myself it was a random act of fate?

I know this: the cup is fine, it seems 30. I also know in my deep heart of hearts that I did not make that cup fell down by any physical action.

As far as how the cup fell? I really don’t know.
An abundant amount of theories are exploding in my head, some metaphysical and some paranormal, even a peppered bit with the notion that time slips or an alternate reality of me was present on another time line, and for one second we interacted.

Quite frankly, there is no logical way that the cup should have fallen from the sink. But it did.

And it bothers me..

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 …

WE LEFT CAMPION OFF THE ARMY BASE AND NOW WE HAVE A PROBLEM IN ARNETT.. SOMEONE NEEDS TO FIND STU REDMAN..

Real news has become surreal.. I find many headlines of our current day to relate back to THE STAND.. I know the comparison is a little fuzzy, and my overdoing it may be annoying to some. But when the strange similarities to me are striking.. The STAND starts in Texas. And in real life Texas is the center stage for the Ebola scare. And even worse, the endless stories of people 'coming back to life' are getting bizarre--though we can assume that parts of Africa cannot truly pinpoint the cause of death, so somene coming back to life is moot: The person probably wasn't dead. At least we hope they weren't.. Though SNOPES can tell us it's a hoax, try to explain the high strangeness of ABC NEWS filming a dead man and suddenly seeing him moving..

Continuing to the real news of the day (though it seems like fiction half of the time), focus is now turning on how Thomas Duncan got inot the United States. The Washington POST is giving us an hour by hour synopsis of what happen…
