Sometimes, just when I think that things can’t get any weirder (and that doesn’t happen too often), I get that reality slap to the face which tells me that it’s just getting started. I show you now “Drank”, the worlds first (to my knowledge) anti-energy drink. It’s grape soda with valerian root and melatonin, and according to the Wikipedia is based on an urban cocktail which involves mixing codeine-and-promethazine-based cough syrup with Sprite and Jolly Ranchers. Popularized by some idiot named “Dj Screw”, who wound up dying from it, the concotion spread around the hip-hop scene in the southern US, taking several more lives in the process. Now it’s being marketed, hoorah! I can’t tell if this is just a culturally ignorant money-making venture, or a sly and calculated attempt to make certain sectors of society even more fucked up, but it certainly feels like a bad, bad idea all around.
Drank – for when you want to fall asleep at the party [DoseNation, via Gothamist]
RIDGWAY, Pa. – It’s furry and walks on all fours. Beyond that, about the only thing certain about the critter photographed by a hunter’s camera is that some people have gotten the notion it could be a Sasquatch, or bigfoot. Others say it’s just a bear with a bad skin infection.
Now, I’m no conspiracy nut; I know the council of Zion folded back in the Fifties, and I’m quite aware of why JFK needed to be put down like a mad dog. I understand these things. I try to make sure I only believe in ghosts when there’s definitely no chance of them being around, and I’m practical enough to not go looking for vampires at night because I don’t want to be rude. Bigfoot, however, has often been a thorn in my sensible side. It’s perfectly reasonable to believe that some sort of parallel to man’s evolution has survived into the modern age. Even considering how deep we’ve penetrated into Mother Nature’s fleshy, wooden womb, there’s still some small chance we’ve missed something. This is doubly reinforced by photos of the above. Can we tell what we’re looking at? No, not at all. However, when the agency spokesman for the Pennsylvania Game Commission, Jerry Feaser, speaks up and says, “There is no question it is a bear with a severe case of mange”, I just shake my head.
First off, there clearly is a question, otherwise we wouldn’t be discussing the point. Secondly, why couldn’t they get a real conservation officer to make this statement? Now, for comparison, look at that picture, and now look at this one:
Very similar looking, yes? But, please notice, this mangey bear has lost all of it’s fur. The animal in the top photo clearly has fur on it; that’s not the bare (bear?) skin we can see on our poor little ursine. Is it possible that Mr. Feaser is correct? Of course it is. It’s also possible that he’s plumb wrong. The issue I personally have is how he’s not willing to give any leeway; it’s a very dark photo, and not one I’d feel comfortable making any definite statements about. Of course, the Bigfoot nuts aren’t any better. Paul Majeta of the Bigfoot Research Organization stated about the photo that “It appears to be a primate-like animal. In my opinion, it appears to be a juvenile Sasquatch”. I can’t get over this statement. Has the man ever seen a sasquatch? How would he know what a juvenile looks like? If it is indeed a simian, could it not just as easily be a chimpanzee or some other monkey that’s escaped it’s cruel masters and set out for a life of its own in the woods? Absolute statements are poopy, and make baby zombie Jesus cry.
Personally speaking, I like to think it’s a Bigfoot. It sure as hell doesn’t look like a mangy bear to me. This page on the Bigfoot Field Researchers Organization’s site about the pics certainly doesn’t help the “bare bear” argument, showing another example of a mangy bear, as well as a very intriguing comparison picture between the mystery animal and a gorilla on all fours. Unfortunately they rather annoy me by having the same “I Know Better Than You” attitude as the agency spokesman, but they get some points back for not being government sock puppets. Further mysteries for our day, long to go unsolved, I’m sure. Certainly is interesting to think about though. Happy Hallowe’en!
Pa. hunter’s images stir Bigfoot debate [Yahoo! News]
Discovered a prophecy masking-taped onto a pole at my local Skytrain station, this missive from the masses was placed to get as much attention as possible, right next to the up escalator. I didn’t really have time to read it then, so I quickly snapped a few pics for later reference. The text of it is fascinating, really; for those who can’t be bothered, or the sight-impaired, it reads, spelling not corrected:
Today look-up toward the night-sky, at 9:30 PM – 1 PM to night. You will see the GUARDIAN’S that was prophesied in the Bible, they are extraterrestrials!!! There formation look like this
(see image above)
The dotes are the ships!!! They are not stars. The lights will cause no refraction and sit much lower than satelites!!!
This is no joke. Also
The Aldebaran; a giant sun. They key star of Taurus constellation; To-view-look toward North East at Pre-dawn 5 – 6:00 AM. Last time seen was thousands of years-ago.
It is bighter than the moon as prophesied in the Bible!!!!!
MAJOR DESTRUCTION!!!This is part of the “SIX SEALS”
Now, really, I know it sounds obvious, but there’s a couple of things wrong with all this. First off, if Taurus is in the sky, Aldebaran is visible; it’s one of the brightest stars in the sky, period. Now, brighter than the moon is an interesting statement, but really, the moon isn’t so much bright as large; is the suggestion that the star will increase in visual size? As for the rest of it, there’s really no reference to “Guardians” in the bible that can be drawn from such a generic statement. However, all this being said, I’ll be loking to the night skies tonight, trying to look for the patterns. Being the anniversary of 9/11, it’d be so damn appropriate for the space overlords to come down and kick our asses, dontcha think?
Once upon a time, the Panhandle city of Vernon was a national laughingstock. Its people were ridiculed as bumpkins and cranks, freaks willing to shoot off their own hands. Then things changed. Time and hard work helped bury the past, and now Vernon has reclaimed some of its dignity. If only that were the end of the story.
And thus is the bizarre, heartbreaking story of Nubtown, Florida instroduced. Properly called Vernon, named after Geroge Washington’s Virginia home, Mt. Vernon, the city earned the name Nubville when, during the 50’s, there was a rash of suspicious amputations and limb-losses, so much so that insurance agencies started to refuse to offer policies to the residents. Those days are past, but the nickname lingers while the current occupants have tried to rebuild their town’s fallen image. The article is a moving tribute to some good people who’ve worked a long time to bring their town back, and who may lose it again, this time forever.
Dismembered Again [St. Petersburg Times]
It’s a sad day for the people of Earth. One of our staunchest news sources, the people who were unafraid to print the real truth, has been taken out back for the final countdown. Yes, after twenty-seven years informing the globe about the dangers of Satan, alien involvement in world government, and really really fat people and animals, is closing, with no reason nor rhyme given, with their final published issue due August 3rd. One can only conclude that their brand of hard-hitting journalism was just too dangerous to the status quo in the locked-down, media-controlled USA. I give my thanks to these brave souls, and hope that they know that they will never be forgotten.
