Armed gunmen wearing black hoods stormed the offices of the publication in a suburb of the city before firing automatic weapons in a scene police described as “carnage,” local media reported. The attackers were heard shouting “Allahu Akbar,” an Islamic phrase that means “God is great.”

The masked men who went into the name and asked for specific names before the shooting began walked out and got away..

They were also armed with a rocket launcher along with their Kalashinkovs..

Minutes before the shooting, CHARLIE HEBDO tweeted a satirical image of Mohammed.. Moments later their office building was under siege and the murderous rampage took place..

An injured person is evacuated outside the French satirical

There is also video of the attacks.. raw video showcasing the shootings.. Originally, the media reported that they had video but chose, initially,not to air footage. That self imposed embargo has been obliterated after the video streamed online millions of times over already.. in the footage, sounds of gunfire can be clearly heard, as can frequent shouts of Allahu Akbar..

Jean Cabut, a graphic artist known to readers by his pen name Cabu, and St├ęphane Charbonnier, the magazine’s editor in chief known by his pseudonym Charb, were among the dead, the police said..

“The aim is to laugh. We want to laugh at the extremists — every extremist. They can be Muslim, Jewish, Catholic. Everyone can be religious, but extremist thoughts and acts we cannot accept.”



Charlie Hebdo journalist LAURENT LEGER, speaking after the firebombing of his publication’s offices in 2011; the controversial magazine had published caricatures of the prophet Muhammad.

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..

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.
