The sonic booms

Blasts and booms have been sounding since January 1 2011.. And this January, 2016, it's going wild.

New Jersey. New York. California.. Florida.. Pennsylvania.. most recently Connecticut. and other countries as well..

At the end of the week, the Navy said it was responsible for sonic booms of the Jersey coastline--those booms were felt so far and wide that the USGS asking for people to report information to them about the situation..

In November 2015, the HORROR REPORT told of booms that were very close to home. My part of Schuylkill County, PA, where I currently reside, was also the home to amazingly loud and boisterous booms that night in November.

A response to the November 2015 story came just yesterday when a reader in my county reported this:
About 7:00 pm., Thursday evening, in Pottsville,Pa.,heard loud sonic boom, shook our house, scared the crap out of us !!!!!
I blasted out a screen shot of the message on my Facebook page and got this response from a reader in South Carolina:
Uh…

THE PHANTOM GIRL IN THE PICTURE

If you checked my Facebook feed earlier today, you may have seen a story I linked being reported by Russia Today.. It is bizarre to say the least..

Old photos have always caused me to pause and stare.. I so often wonder what the often expressionless faces in the photo-documentation of time were thinking.. But the story of the Siberian phantom girl sort of takes the cake in the creepy department..

As published in RT, some interesting story highlights:

Museum workers in Krasnoyarsk were astonished when they digitalized local photos from the early 1900s only to find an identical figure in all of them – a solemn girl, dressed in all white, striking an identical pose.

So far, the mystery girl has been found in at least 20 photos and four glass negatives, which researchers at the Krasnoyarsk Regional Museum of Local Lore believe were taken between 1906 and 1908, judging from the state of the buildings in the photos.
And if those two paragraphs don't systematically creep out your system and g…

THE WEIRD DOLL CRAZE IN THAILAND

Do dolls give you a bit of the creeps? Do their piecing eyes sort of delve deep into your soul? Does the expressionless face haunt you when you least want it to?

If the answer was yes to any of the above, avoid Thailand for a while.

According to media reports, the anxiety of economic despair and ruination after a coup in the country has caused an influx of enthusiasm for lifelike dolls. Reuters reports that the doll craze is sweeping the nation..
Thailand is predominantly Buddhist and has been modernizing rapidly over the past two or three decades but many people are highly superstitious, their beliefs co-existing with notions of animism, astrology and "black magic."

"I can see it in other people's eyes," said Natsuda Janbtim, 45, who has been raising her doll Nong Ruay Jung, or Pretty Rich in Thai, for 8 months. "I know some of them must be wondering why I am carrying a doll but I just don't care."

The plastic dolls, about the size of a real baby or a…

Quakes and booms across the world

It's a busy Friday night for quake watchers..

A major hit in Russia tonight.. Strong 7.2 but no tsunami threat.. 


In the mean time DUTCHSINSE has the most recent information on hits on California tonight .. 

That plus sonic booms in New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania. And stories making their way across the net about the ramifications of a big New Madrid fault zone quake...

Sleep well tonight..

Fear over the Zika virus

Worldwide fears are increasing that the Zika virus, one that primarily hits newborn children, will become a major pandemic over the coming months..

And this tonight developing in New York City: 
RSOE EDIS Event Report - A third case of the Zika virus has been confirmed in the Big Apple - in a pregnant woman who contracted the mosquito-borne infection while traveling overseas. City health officials, after revealing the new case Thursday, sought to calm fears by emphasizing that there's no risk of acquiring the virus in the five boroughs. The sickened New Yorkers all returned from countries in the Caribbean and Latin America struggling to contend with the rapidly escalating Zika outbreak. The mosquitoes suspected of carrying the disease are not found in New York, officials said.

CREATIVITY ON THE CAMPAIGN TRAIL

This wll undoubtedly be a wild year of political strangeness.. Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders are toppling the norms and powers that be wtih big audiences, lots of attention, and potential victories in upcoming primaries..

But as usual with the HORROR REPORT, we like to point out the more bizarre and odd..

The odd can be found in Iowa, where a lone protester is making headlines for following Ted Cruz around and holding up a sign saying he likes Nickelback..

It's weird.
And really, who likes Nickelback?
Ted Cruz?
Maybe.. but not the protester.

As Joshua Fetcher writes, pointing out that the protester did not reveal his name to media at this point,
However, the band took the protester's jabs in stride in a Jan. 11 tweet, "NICKELBACK Employee of the Month. January 2016. #Election2016 #Nickelback4President"

But, when asked about his favorite Nickelback song, the protester told the Post, "I don't like Nickelback."

THE HORROR REPORT

I posted what I thought was an amazing story today about where I have been over the last month.. I discovered after posting it that it never actually posted..
THE HORROR REPORT is not going anywhere .. We never did.
We are here...
stay tuned..

THIS IS THE END OF NOTHING BUT THE BEGINNING OF EVERYTHING
