Space probe picks up something mighty interesting on camera: Could this be a comet version of Stonehenge?Rosetta was able to capture an image of what appears to be standing stones on a comet moving through space.. One of the rocks – a huge boulder with a diameter of around 90 feet – appears to be balanced precariously on the comet’s surface. Scientists admit that the information is not yet clear as to how the stones formed in their positions but believe it was due to the transport process on the surface. But the scientific theory hasn’t quelled the most lively of speculators who are pondering the possibilities that the stones were purposely arranged there.. Admittedly, the on-purpose theory is much more fun than the other option..

A ‘pay per mile’ fee has been long speculated about by those with tightly worn tin foil hats. But as most ‘conspiracies’ go, they come to fruition eventually in our world of reality based science fiction.. Such as this: Oregon is considering ditching the gas tax and imposing a pay per mile idea instead.. Initially, though, it may actually work out quite well and be a tax break for many..

The hunt for the parallel universe: CERN boosts data intelligence.. It feels like something big is about to be discovered.. Something big.

HISTORY and disgusting: Over 1400 individuals are under investigation by British police as part of the ongoing inquiry into numerous alleged historic VIP sex abuse network thought to include celebrities and politicians. Information released by Operation Hydrant, the group of police officers tackling the alleged ring, said that the 1,433 suspected offenders included 76 politicians, 43 musicians, and 135 from film, television and radio…






CHINA plans mission to the dark side of the moon.. Cue the Pink Floyd soundtrack as they go where no nation (we are told at least) has gone before. Maybe they will get there and discover a treasure trove in abandoned moon bases! If so, we have time to clean up the evidence. The dark side moon launch doesn’t happen until 2020…



JARED LETO as the Joker fully revealed.. These are photos from the TORONTO set of the SUICIDE SQUAD filming. While the NET may have gone crazy when David Ayer revealed the cast of the SUICIDE SQUAD–minus LETO–it’s the JOKER attire that most have long awaited. And now the these photos may wet the appetite of fans who have been waiting patiently for any leaked (or purposely leaked) photos of the new JOKER of the modern age..


TIME magazine writes: David Letterman was the LAST pre-internet star.. And I agree with that premise. I wrote a special post last night concerning this very subject and why David Letterman mattered in my life, and why I think him leaving matters quite a bit for society and pop culture..

PEPPA PIG smashes records!! The kids love the hog..Smashes the billion dollar mark.. . My son, age 4, has seen the program, and while he doesn’t request it, he will quietly watch it when it’s on.. Five minute programs about a family with one pig that enjoys jumping in puddles? The makers didn’t know it would be this much of a success and quite frankly, how could they have? It was created in 2004 in the UK.. the same place that gave us quirky comedy with MONTY PYTHON and amazing DR WHO shows also gives us pigs with sidewalks snouts who have overly dull existences and never raise their voices.. And the kids, these days, just love it. If I have to theorize as to why, I would say this: We have complicated kids’ lives with technology and gadgets. Maybe this low key simple show that eliminates flashy animation is exactly what the child’s mind needs. Something kind and peaceful. Something that doesn’t inspire seizures, violence, rage, or hate. Just a pig that likes jumping in puddles.

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…
