Horror in China as over 100 stabbed in mass knife incident

We know this: At least 28 killed and 113 injured when knife-wielding men stormed Kunming Railway Station in southwest Yunnan province.

More information according to reports: During the mass stabbing attack, there were several men wearing all black who rushed the train station and began to reportedly stab anyone they saw..

There are images circulating online which purport to show mangled and stabbed body laying dead on the ground in the station.. I am choosing not to publish these for two reasons, number one being that they could be fake and number two being that they are extremely tacky and personal to show the mangled corpses left at bioterror attack. Other websites are showing gruesome imagery..

More reports indicate that some of the men were shot dead by police, the others are still being tracked down.

This is one of the deadliest my contacts in China in the last several years.

At this point no motive has been translated to authorities but there is a horrific and gruesome scene playin…

The mad scientist: Random words, gibberish, and fake

If you ever read a science journal and scratched your head in confusion, you're not alone.

You're left wondering.. what did I just read?

Am I completely stupid for not understanding a single sentence?

Such big words may have confused you but the structure of the sentence may have led to even more exacerbation of the brain.

And today we learn this: 120 papers published in science journals over the past several years have been called out. 

They are frauds. Not real.

FOXNEWS reports this,
Some 120 papers published in established scientific journals over the last few years have been found to be frauds, created by nothing more than an automated word generator that puts random, fancy-sounding words together in plausible sentence structures. As a result they have been pulled from the journals that originally published them.The fake papers are in the fields of computer science and math and have titles such as “Application and Research of Smalltalk Harnessing Based on Game-Theoretic Symmetrie…

I opened up my eyes and saw the sign

I was outside Thursday night when I saw two simultaneous bright lights in the sky above me.. They were long lasting and not typical 'shooting stars' as I have come to know them.

Today I read this: Pennsylvania, along with other states, saw fireballs dropping vertically from the sky on Thursday night.
I saw the fireballs that are being reported..  One report in the story has a witness saying it was the brightest shooting star they ever saw and it looked like it was dropping vertical. I agree with that report and is similar to what I saw ...
2013 was the year of the fireball. In 2014 the pink stars are falling... I am going to begin working on my meteor report now to the American Meteor Society. If you saw one too, you should do the same.

Conflicting Saturday: I'll take Crimean Tatars with my Ukraine Crisis

10:00 AM UPDATE: VLADIMIR PUTIN RECEIVES APPROVAL FROM PARLIAMENT TO USE RUSSIAN TROOPS IN UKRAINE...

X X X X X

Original update: There are multiple weather models showing the storm this weekend moving north.. and south.. and no where.. and here. And there. My area is bracing for 1 to 25 inches of snow. That's an old joke, of course, but this go around it's actually quite accurate. The weatherman knows a storm is brewing--they are getting better at timing--but they sure aren't sure yet as to what path it takes...

The sun shines.. but so many nations see war planes on bright and blue days. I worry about war today.. This world has seen way too much of it in modern life. But so much more seems to be coming..

Some Saturday morning news to use or lose this bright and shiny sunny morning:

The world is watching--and some are holding collective breath--as Russia and Crimea continue to embroil themselves in an inevitable war.. A few days ago, the BBC ran a good article explaining what wa…

The Phantom Noise in your head and in your reality

A few months ago I was walking Mutley the dog .. it was a bright December morning, before all of these snowstorms of the winter time struck. We were in the middle no where--on a long path on a mountain. Suddenly, out of no where, I heard a loud shot gun like noise.. It sounded like it was right next to my head. The odd part of the circumstance was the fact that my dog--who barks at pins dropping--didn't flinch an eye. Instead he acted as though he did not hear anything at all..
I spoke to a few people about this. I did not know if it even happened. Was I imagining the noise? Did it happen miles away but travel in an echo right to me? Was it a blowing transformer? A loud boom from the planet earth--the kind Linda Howe talks about on Coast to Coast AM? All of these thoughts immediately went through my mind. But I kept watching my dog, who obviously didn't wonder the same things I did.
A sudden crisis involving my father's health happened a day or two later and I was left  thin…

Titan's terror: In like a winter lion as the people in 1,300 miles become as helpless as lambs

March arrives tomorrow. With it .. a lion's roar.

Weather forecasters have been watching for days at a possible storm developing for the entire Midwest through East Coast. It appears that the right ingredients are about to come together to give up to 18 inches of snow (or more) for some locations..

Accuweather's latest map forecasts a possible 12-18 inch potential for a heavily populated area of Pennsylvania. I have a personal interest in this storm since a portion of that sliver of heavy snow is right overtop of HORROR REPORT home base..

Other areas, including major cities, will have heavy snow and ice..  The homeless in major cities will continue to be hard hit..

The storm is coming as people, weary from a long and cold winter, are looking forward to spring. Hopes for an early warm spell have already been dashed.. And now this widespread heavy snowstorm is set to hit--it will be long lasting and will also end with a bitter cold blast as it departs the area hit.. 1,300 miles will…

Dexter returns: Bagged, tagged, and alive

Walter Williams was in a body bag at a Mississippi funeral home when, much to the shock of workers, was found alive.. he was kicking as they opened the bag at the Porter & Sons Funeral home in Lexington..

The coroner was called to Williams' home ... the 78-year-old was declared dead on Wednesday night at 9pm.

The next day he was breathing and kicking, trapped in a body bag. Frighteningly, he was close to meeting a final, final end. He was in the embalming room when he was discovered to still be alive..

The Holmes County Coroner, Dexter Howard, said that he thinks the pacemaker in Williams' body stopped working but then started again.. Dexter said, at first, that the body of Williams was lifeless and without a pulse.

Questions exist.. was this a miracle, or the bad decisions of an under qualified staff..?
Where did Williams' consciousness go during his hours of death?
How may this affect Dexter's reelection chances?
And finally..
The one irony, if any does exist in this sto…

SONY about to profit off of Lam horror

I have really never liked horror movies based on true stories.. they seem a little over the top, often. And in this matter, perhaps insensitive and tacky.. Sony has just bought the rights to a horror movie based on the death of Elisa Lam in Los Angeles in 2013.. 

You may remember recent stories about Lam in the news. She was the student who was found dead in the water tank of then famed and cursed Cecil Hotel--for two weeks hotel visitors were complaining of a smell and taste in the water, later they found Lam's body. 

In recent months, a surveillance video from the elevator in the hotel was made famous because it seemed to show Lam acting odd moments before she supposedly entered the roof area and somehow got into a high and secured water tank.. 

The coroner ruled the death to be accidental. Not an accident is SONY making profits off of the death of the innocent young woman.

New Look, Same News

New visitors may not care.. old timers may see a big difference. The HORROR REPORT has changed its design for the second time in history..
The last time the HORROR REPORT changed, reader reaction was clear: It was hated.

The HORROR REPORT gained its fame in 1999 on an old Geocities site. It became a domain name with a dash in 2001.. And since then, it primarily maintained the same exact black and red look with few exceptions  .. 
In 2013, a new design was implemented and most users who emailed or contacted the HORROR REPORT dislike the new design..

This go around, we hope that it's more user friendly, and more interactive..
Please share your thoughts with us.. does the new look work? Does it fit the mood, the intent, and then purpose of the HORROR REPORT?
Email me.. Tweet me..
Facebook me...
Collectively conscious me.
Whatever way you choose to connect..
We hopefully have hit the nail on a new design. If not, we intend on changing it back if enough oppose the new look.

The Late shift

Late night TV has shifted..
Jimmy Fallon, Seth Meyers.. and all that goes with.

Jay Leno appeared as a guest on the Arsenio Hall show the other evening to announce that the program was picked up for a second season.

Things aren't as rosy for Fallon and Meyers..

According to DEADLINE, Late Night with Seth Meyers has fallen below 2009's Fallon program.. and even more, Jimmy Kimmel is tightening the 11:30 race for top late night status..

My favorite Facebook weather source, the Weatherboy Weather posted an "OMG" over top of today's snowstorm forecast.. This is beginning to look like a long duration snow storm set to drop up to 20 inches or more in spots..  prepare now because by Monday all travel may be temporarily grounded.. The other concern may be ice if enough warmth spreads into the storm.. It's a March storm after all--and March storms typically produce heavy snow. In like a lion.. a cold, cold lion in winter.

All the Thursday trouble in the world

The planet earth is filled with beautiful and amazing people--those who'd drop their own world for yours, take a shirt off their back for you, and bring love to others. And there are filthy and awful black-hearted people too. I saw a few of those this week, some souls troubled by evil and darkness.. I saw morbidly horrid people attempting to be 'normal.' And I know you did, too..
I am sure you can find a few good, and bad, in the news today. Speaking of the news.. here's what matters to me and should to you:

Russian fighter jets have been put on combat alert over tensions in Ukraine.. Now that the Winter Games have successfully concluded for Momma Russia, Vlad the Impaler is doing as he sees fit.. Including this provocative move: A Russian spy ship has docked in Havana, Cuba. And the silence is deafening on why. All eyes are now on Moscow's military moves in the Ukraine--troops are being spotted in Crimea..Ukraine's ousted president is defiant, saying he's st…
