NotPetya turns into global epidemic.. On June 26, 2017, a new type of ransomware called NotPetya began attacking computing systems across the globe. It originally targeted major systems in the Ukraine including banks, postal services, airports, power companies, and more. But it quickly spread outside its targeted zone, expanding across 64 countries including Brazil, Germany, Russia, and even the United States. We take a look at what this NotPetya ransomware is, what systems are affected, and how you can stand guard against this specific attack...
..not sure if you’re into stale old ideas coming back after being dusted off from the top shelf. If you are! Here’s your chance to see TREMORS again ..and it will star the same star it starred then..? According to Variety, the SYFY network has picked up a pilot which could potentially spin into a series set 25 years after the 1990 flick left off. The set up sounds a little similar Starz’s Ash vs Evil Dead spin off: Valentine must return to the small town of Perfection to defend it against the killer Graboid worms, but will have to “overcome age, alcphol and a delusional hero complex”. “This is the only character I’ve played that I’ve ever thought about revisiting,” Bacon told Variety. “I just got to thinking, where would this guy end up after 25 years? Andrew Miller has a fantastic take on it and we hope to create a show that will be fun and scary for fans of the movie and folks that have yet to discover it. Let’s kick some Graboid ass!” What a press-releaseish kind of statement.

Netflix has announced the start of production on Miso Film’s “The Rain,” the streaming giant’s first Danish original series which is both penned and co-created by Jannik Tai Mosholt (“Borgen”). Set six years after a devastating biological catastrophe wiped out almost all humans in Scandinavia, two siblings join a group of young survivors and set out to find out whether a new world has begun somewhere else. Set free from the rules of civilized society, each of the young members of the group has the freedom to be who they want to be, but they all struggle with their own selves. Mikkel Boe Følsggard, Alba August, Lucas Lynggaard Tønnesen and Lars Simonsen lead the cast. Mosholt will serve as showrunner alongside Christian Potalivo (“The New Tenants”). Jonas Allen and Peter Bose will also executive produce the series which will be shot in Denmark and Sweden and will premiere in 2018.

Hacking collective Anonymous claims US space agency NASA is about to announce the discovery of intelligent alien life.
“NASA says aliens are coming!” the group wrote on their website.
Anonymous’ claim is based on a number of recent NASA discoveries coupled with comments made by one of the agency’s spokesmen during a congressional hearing titled ‘Advances in the Search for Life,’ in April.
In their video on the issue, Anonymous go on to cite several other alien-friendly comments made by astronauts and space exploration enthusiasts in the past, as well as various alien and UFO ‘sightings’ as evidence that “something is going on in the skies above”.

You see, I vividly remember this movie about a dog who gets lost while on a family road trip, and encounters a restaurant that makes hot dogs out of actual dogs. I could go on and on about the details of the movie, but everyone I ask in person says it doesn't exist, and I've searched far and wide on the internet and have found nothing. I swear this movie existed, and I watched it in the early 2000's, but it was an older movie. Drives me nuts.
Thank you for this .. And yes..when you described this I actually seem to recall something similar.
It will drive you nuts. Mandela Effects are like that. They come.. they go.. they destroy the fabric of your mind.
Thanks for reading. Stick around. I believe we will continue to drive you nuts. And you will drive yourself nuts when you think of this movie about the dog road trip..
READERS: IF ANYONE KNOWS WHAT MOVIE THIS MAY BE, SEND A MESSAGE..
This morning while skimming VICE I found a snippet of information worth repeating:According to unpublished FEMA documents obtained by Government Attic, a FOIA database and non-profit organization, the Department of Homeland Security agency once mapped out a disaster plan for the occurrence of another geomagnetic “superstorm,” noting that the rare—yet “high-consequence"—scenario has "the potential for catastrophic impact on our nation and FEMA’s ability to respond.”Lots of sites and pages on social media are playing this up! Confirmation that the end times are here!….I look at it a bit differently.First off if such an event occurred we would be barely ready. Some agencies and people with islands including solar panels could be well off, but society as a whole would undoubtedly disintegrate rapidly. That is where the contingency plans may need to be focused.. The aftermath. The weeks–months, years?–without power in some locales. And the idea that our life, powered by electrici…

That kind of reality shift that really causes your head to spin.. almost get dizzy..While I often talk about the Mandela Effect this time I am not. Instead I am exploring those real moments–on this timeline–where you see something for what it is.. So evident in front of you that your brain has no ability to process what you are living through.. no ability to conjure up a meaning to the reality you’re existent in, but instead your whole being is just pointed in an immediate right direction. Or at least a direction you never expected to travel to..Let me explain without going into personal gory details.The other night I was involved with a small gathering of friends. One friend turned fiend when he decided to blatantly opine about my life. Advice is on thing. Chalk it up. But criticism and almost condemnation in quite another. It took me a bit to even process what was occurring while it was happening. Things got fuzzy.. suddenly nothing seemed balanced, nothing seemed rea…
BEIRUT (AP) — Russia on Monday threatened aircraft from the U.S.-led coalition in Syrian-controlled airspace and suspended a hotline intended to avoid collisions in retaliation for the U.S. military shooting down a Syrian warplane.The U.S. said it had downed the Syrian jet a day earlier after it dropped bombs near the U.S.-backed Syrian Democratic Forces conducting operations against the Islamic State group, adding that was something it would not tolerate.

There have been ten sightings so far in 2017 of a bat-like creature haunting the lakefront area of Chicago, all within just a few miles of Lake Michigan. The sightings tend to take place in or near parks at night, and whatever this thing is, it never sticks around for long, leaving startled witnesses and upset paradigms in its wake.

Amazon is buying Whole Foods for $13.4 billion..

On the radar: Kevin Smith shooting a horror moving titled KILLROY WAS HERE.. Some of the filming took place at a Florida college.. A little bit of history about KILLROY WAS HERE: The phrase “Kilroy Was Here” originated in American culture as graffiti during World War II as a bald-headed man with a big nose peeking over a wall with the fingers of each hand clutching the wall. Smith said the new film will be the first installment of a horror anthology.. Even more: Author Charles Panati says that in the United States “the mischievous face and the phrase became a national joke… The outrageousness of the graffiti was not so much what it said, but where it turned up.” The major Kilroy graffiti fad ended in the 1950s, but today people all over the world still scribble the character and “Kilroy was here” in schools, trains, and other public areas. It is believed that James J. Kilroy was the origin of the expression, as he used the phrase when checking ships at the Fore River Shipyard in Mas…
There were few signs that a major blockbuster was about to premiere when “The Mummy” rolled into Manhattan last week. The marquee of the AMC Loews Lincoln Square Theatres had gone blank. The carpet was totally covered with black plastic. Security only let guests past barricades after quizzing them about what they were there to see, and everybody had to walk through two imposing metal detectors. Inside the theater, Tom Cruise was jubilant, as he stood in front of the crowd. “Hey y’all,” said the 54-year-old actor. He introduced Alex Kurtzman, the film’s director, as well as the cast members, who stood quietly as Cruise delivered a 10-minute improvised speech. “Movies aren’t made by single people,” he said. “It’s a team effort.” But in the case of “The Mummy,” one person–Cruise–had an excessive amount…

I figured something was up last week when Megyn Kelly visited the set of Alex Jones.. Jones told her to sit in the same chair that Matt Drudge sat in in 2016.. She was joking with him while on his set of his daily syndicated Youtube and radio program..

The world has been wildly negative lately. People are hating on each other.. words are caustic and arguments are vitriolic. Families are divided and friendships are ending..
