PRAYERS FOR THE PHILIPPINE ISLANDS: Typhoon Hagupit now striking

Typhoon Hagupit will cause destruction as it slams into the Philippine islands--the main island is  being affected already as the storm begins to hit land..

Wind and rain has already triggered a small landslide in Eastern Samar.. Provinces are expected to further lose power as the monster storm drives itself inland..

This is a NASA flyover from December 6--note the enormous eyewall and vast amount of oceanic real estate that the storm takes up..

The Philippines has been through other massive typhoons this season.. While the nation is simply prone to such activity due to its location, these storms of 2014 have been frightening.

Now, with this new massive system churning its way onto land, over a half a million people have desperately fled and have taken shelter..

They are pouring into churches, schools, and other makeshift safe houses. The evacuation that has just occurred in response to the Hagupit has been one of the biggest in peacetime.. While war itself may not have caused the massive people movement, what is about to happen may be as frightening as a battle. Winds will howl and rains will deluge.. The world just prays that those houses of God and 'safety' are truly safe during what is about to occur in that nation.



For perspective, this storm--also being called 'Ruby' in the homeland it will hit--will be the equivalent of a large and powerful Category 4 hurricane in North American language. ACCUWEATHER is calling for one particular part of the nation to face catastrophic dangers:



THE HORROR REPORT will continue to follow the storm..

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 …

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.
