Who needs parents when your kids have PJs

Another example of technology extracting even bit of human interaction in life.. Pajamas will soon tell bedtime stories to your kids. Seriously..SMART PJs will be able to talk your child to sleep, I suppose.. While the pajamas will not be able to comfort a crying child who is scared of dark shadows at bedtime, I am sure a robot soon will. And you, as a parent, can achieve your splendid plan of doing nothing while raising your child. Congrats .. now the shining and most beautiful moment of the day—bedtime—will be taken from your by technologically advanced pajamas.

Secret traitor man

I don’t quite know what to make of this.. I have written before about my speculation that Dennis Rodman may be on a secret mission in North Korea to save the planet from World War III.. But today news that he sang happy birthday to Kim Jong Un is just creepy.. You can read the full report here from CBS.. The first thing that popped into my mind when I saw the headline was that Rodman sang the song in Marilyn Monroe style to the Lil Dick-tator.  Other players did NOT join Rodman.. This is how CBS ended its dispatch on this strange display of ….Rodmanism:  Rodman has faced both ridicule and harsh criticism for his trips to North Korea, which some U.S. politicians and activists view as serving only as fodder for North Korean propaganda. But he defended his visit, saying it would help “open the door” and was a “great idea for the world.” "It’s amazing how we thrive on negativity. Does anyone know this guy’s only 31 years old?" he said of Kim, whom he calls his friend. "Dennis, he …

Noahs Ark Risks Collapse Without Bond Buyers by February »Shame if the park isn’t created. No, not because I am anywhere close to a literalist, but because .. seriously.. this is a fun story and I have always remembers the Noah’s Ark song from my childhood! As insane as the Noah story has always been to me, I’d LOVE to go to the theme park. Just alone to hear ‘scientists’ try to tell me why dinosaur eggs weren’t able to hatch on the boat..  And if there’s a rid similar to the last scene of EVAN ALMIGHTY I’d surely pay..

Alfred Hitchcock's unseen Holocaust documentary to be screened »Did you know..? Alfred Hitchcock made a film about Nazi death camps?But according to this UK INDEPENDENT article, Alfred Hitchcock, the master of macabre, was so haunted and disturbed by actual footage of the Holocaust that he stayed away from the Pinewood Studios for a full week after seeing it.. And now, soon, we will all get to see the horrifying footage that haunted Hitchcock.. The INDEPENDENT reports: In 1945, Hithcock had been enlisted by his friend and patron Sidney Bernstein to help with a documentary on German wartime atrocities, based on the footage of the camps shot by British and Soviet film units. In the event, that documentary was never seen. "It was suppressed because of the changing political situation, particularly for the British," suggests Dr Toby Haggith, Senior Curator at the Department of Research, Imperial War Museum. "Once they discovered the camps, the Americans and British were ke…

Bring out your old DVDs: 2014: The year horror will be dormant

2014 is going to be a bad year for horror movies »Looks like the relics in your closet will be the must watch films of the year.. There aren’t too many horror flicks worth looking forward to in 2014. A shame, too.. So much was great in 2013. The CONJURING was perhaps among the best. In 2014 there will not be any gems worth mining..

Leave Honey Boo Boo alone

Honey Boo Boo, family 'really sore' after car wreck »I already see bloggers and Tweeters and others mocking the family and making some horrible jokes about this car accident. Yes the show is deplorable. And no, I don’t watch it—not even the clips. But come on, people.. show some class, and interrupt your hate for a few minutes and just hope for the best for some of your fellow humans.

A UFO story too close to home

On January 6, 2014,  I was listening to Ground Zero Radio with Clyde Lewis. His guest was Peter Davenport from the national UFO reporting center.. Davenport spoke to Lewis about a seemingly large uptick in UFO reports since January 1 of this year.. A bit into the show, I learned about a UFO case that may forever haunt me—and I should have known about it since I know exactly where this incident happened.  Davenport spoke about Todd Sees from Northumberland County, Pa. Sees vanished in 2002.. Sees was 39 and lived at the base of Montour Ridge .. he was married and a father of two. One Sunday morning he took his ATV to the top of the mountain.. He never returned. They found his four wheeler. They also found his shoe in a tree.. they found his body some time later badly mutilated.. You can read more here about the case (and you can find some archived news stories from the DAILY ITEM here) or watch this video of homicide detective Butch Witkowski speak about this.. While the UFO movement has…

Canada's ex-defense minister: Aliens would give us more tech if we'd stop wars »Paul Hellyer, who has long insisted that aliens have visited Earth for many years, says that when aliens saw the atomic bomb they decided that we were a great threat to the cosmos. Read this article by Chris Matyszczyk on CNET News.If he is crazy, then he’s crazy. If aliens are real, then he may be right. But what about those hostile aliens, you know, the ones in the cigar shaped craft that take us? What about the Grays, who do bad things to people from the South?  Paul Hellyer doesn’t answer much about that, but he does say that we need to give up warfare in order to get help from the creature above..

Now a food crisis in Japan

A lot of people are getting very sick.. The LA TIMES reports:
In what appears to be a country-wide outbreak of food poisoning, 350 people in Japan have been sickened by the pesticide malathion after eating frozen chicken teriyaki with mayonnaise, cream corn croquettes or pizza, according to a police investigation.

The outbreak is being traced to Maruha Nichiro Holdings, Japan’s largest seafood firm that runs a plant north of Tokyo. The company said it had received 460,000 calls from concerned consumers. Symptoms include vomiting and diarrhea. Some customers complained of an odor as the foods were heating up.

UFO spotted in Berkshire skies leaves investigators baffled »Object shaped like a rugby ball flew within a few feet of passenger jet at 34,000ft, claims pilotWhile it may not be proof of aliens, a pilot’s testimony already strikes a special chord with me. Maybe it’s because I picture Chesley Sullenberger heroically landing a plane on the Hudson and saving the lives of hundreds. Or maybe it’s because I loved the movie AIRPLANE ever since I was kid.. Either way, if a pilot tells me something happened, I tend to believe it. In this circumstance, we have a pilot’s own testimony that the plane was around 34,000 when he saw something.. It was said to be “cigar/rugby ball like” in shape, bright silver and “metallic” and travelling towards the jet. The pilot said he felt certain it was going to crash into his aircraft and ducked as it headed towards him, but it did not appear to make impact. He told investigators he believed the object passed “within a few feet” above the jet. Beware the cigar s…

Brain dead girl Jahi McMath released from California hospital »Jahi McMath, the 13-year-old girl on a ventilator who was declared brain dead by doctors in California after tonsil surgery, was released from a hospital.This is just an emotional draining and horrific story. I cannot even imagine what he family of this beautiful girl, Jahi, is experiencing.  There are so many things I think about when  I read updates on this matter. One thing I don’t like seeing over and over again: the media uses “brain dead” to describe Jahi in almost every headline. I understand why they would.. but can’t we give this 13-year-old girl more respect? Can’t we describe her as “loving Jahi” or “beautiful Jahi”? Oh, better yet, just “Jahi McMath!” Maybe that would work! While I am not an expert on the brain, I am not quite sure if anyone is.. We are going into uncharted territories as we explore more about the brain, its functions, and what it does every single day when we wake up.I listened to a pretty inter…
