Humans biologically programmed to nap in afternoon... http://dlvr.it/Pp3GCf  RT via @DRUDGE_REPORT #newsDKGPTPgUEAAIV6r.jpg

 

 

 

A few years ago during the October / Halloween theme programming on TV, there was a documentary "Are You Afraid of The Dark" (not connected to the Cinar series or movie).  Before the modern era, people use to divide their nighttime sleep into 2 phases.

 

Weird can't find no references on the internet about the documentary.

 

Here's a couple of sites that says the same thing.

Island owner Richard Branson: Hurricanes 'start of things to come'

Billionaire Virgin founder Richard Branson blasted President Trump on Tuesday for refusing to address climate change amid a string of powerful hurricanes that have lashed the United States, Caribbean and Virgin Islands in recent weeks.

 

“Climate change is real,” Branson said on CNN’s “New Day” Tuesday. “Ninety-nine percent of scientists know it’s real. The whole world knows it’s real except for maybe one person in the White House.”

 

Branson, who rode out Hurricane Irma in a concrete bunker on his private Necker Island in the British Virgin Islands, said it was an “indescribable” experience.

 

“I was at the Paris talks,” Branson said. “It felt like so much hope that the world was going to rally around to deal with this problem. And then, of course, what happened in America when people denied climate change and said that they wouldn’t rally around and help the rest of the world get on top of this problem. So I just wanted to get here to talk about it.”

Last time I checked we've had hurricanes for centuries, so this is nothing new. Please give us all our money back for what we've wasted on this scam.

Venezuela's president advises malnourished citizens to breed rabbits and eat them

Venezuela’s government has launched a scheme to encouage people to breed rabbits and eat them as a way of countering frequently chronic food shortages and growing child malnutrition.

 

The government of Nicolas Maduro said the so-called Rabbit Plan would help boost food availability. Officials have also shown citizens how to grow food on the roofs and balconies of their homes.

 

Reuters said Mr Maduro’s adversaries dismissed the idea as nonsensical, insisting the real problem is a failed model of oil-financed socialism that was unable to survive after crude markets collapsed.

 

“There is a cultural problem because we have been taught that rabbits are cute pets,” said Urban Agriculture Minister Freddy Bernal said during a televised broadcast with Mr Maduro this week, according to the news agency.

*****************************************************

This sounds like a plan Bernie Sanders would think up, the Rabbit Plan for world hunger.

Branson and some actor.  Not Baldwin, but some other guy.  Can't think of his name at the moment, but he was more relevant in the 1990s.  They both had island property that was wiped out, so now they are making it all about "Anthropogenic Global Warming".  No, you just got hit by a bleeping hurricane because it's hurricane season and you are in a hot spot.  It's been a long time since we had a major hurricane, that is the unusual part.

Evidence of 'night parrot', one of world's rarest birds, found in Australia

Sydney (AFP) - A feather from one of the most elusive birds in the world has been found in South Australia, the first proof in more than a century that it lives there, wildlife experts said Thursday.

 

The "night parrot" ranks among the world's rarest avian species and was thought extinct until an intrepid Australian naturalist provided photo evidence of one in Queensland state in 2013.

It has since also been spotted in Western Australia.

 

The expert behind the Queensland sighting, John Young, and fellow ecologist Keith Bellchambers from the Australian Wildlife Conservancy have now shown it is also in South Australia.

 

The pair found a feather from the small, yellowish-green bird in the nest of a zebra finch around remote Lake Eyre while following up on blurry images from a camera trap in the area.

 

Researchers feared for decades that the nocturnal, desert-dwelling parrot was extinct, with no sightings between 1912 and 1979 and only a handful since, before the conclusive evidence in 2013.

If they ever catch one, maybe they can make it talk.

Biblical prophecy claims the world will end on Sept. 23

A Christian numerologist claims that the world will end this Saturday when a planet will, supposedly, collide with Earth.

 

According to Christian numerologist David Meade, verses in Luke 21:25 to 26 are the sign that recent events, such as the recent solar eclipse and Hurricane Harvey, are signs of the apocalypse.

 

The verses read:

 

“25: There will be signs in the sun, moon and stars. On the earth, nations will be in anguish and perplexity at the roaring and tossing of the sea. People will faint from terror, apprehensive of what is coming on the world, for the heavenly bodies will be shaken.'

 

"'26: Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken.'

 

Sept. 23 is a date that was pinpointed using codes from the Bible, as well as a "date marker" in the pyramids of Giza in Egypt.

 

Meade has built his theory on the so-called Planet X, which is also known as Nibiru, which he believes will pass Earth on Sept. 23, causing volcanic eruptions, tsunamis and earthquakes, according to British newspaper The Sun.

**************************************************************

No UFO's? This too shall pass.

One thing that stands out clear is the prediction of an asteroid collision.  Both camps (religous / science) can agree on this.

 

Revelation 8:8

Then the second angel sounded his trumpet, and something like a great mountain burning with fire  into the  A third of the  turned to blood,  A third of the living creatures in the sea died, and a third of the ships were destroyed.…

 

Note: Don't take blood literally.

Even believers have figured out that taking the more

absurd things literally doesn't look very good nowadays.

Don't give them that old time religion.

Mammoth calls out the plows as first snow of the season coats roads and village

It's snowing in the Sierra. Then again, when isn’t it snowing in the Sierra?

 

Mammoth Lakes got more than a dusting Thursday in the first snowfall of the season, with three inches reported in the village. Snow coated the roads so heavily that the plows were out, and locals left footprints on sidewalks.

 

The snow comes about a month earlier than usual and arrives just as the aspen are beginning to turn. By mid-afternoon Thursday, the snow still coated the village and temps had dropped into the mid-30s. Warmer weather was forecast for the weekend, with highs in the 50s and nighttime lows in the 20s.

 

The Eastern Sierra seems to have a jump-start on wintery weather, following the last, epic season. Beginning Jan. 3, the resort town of 8,200 saw a string of blizzards leave a total of 40 feet of snow.

*************************************************

What happened to global warming in California? They are already getting their first snow of an early season, and no explanation from the experts.

Shooting of 17ft crocodile triggers battle for his Queensland crown

The shooting of one of the largest crocodiles seen in Australia has started a brutal fight for supremacy among the other males in the river system, increasing the danger they pose to humans.

 

The 17ft saltwater crocodile was discovered with a bullet in its head in the Fitzroy River, near Rockhampton, in central Queensland on Thursday.

 

The dead reptile would have been a dominant male, patrolling large sections of the river and ruling over other males, said Michael Joyce, operations director at Queensland’s Department of Environment.

 

It is believed to have been at least 80 years old. “People need to clearly understand the death of this animal has changed the balance of the crocodile population.

**************************************************

So a 17-foot crocodile is gone and they think it is more dangerous than it was before? Was he a vegetarian?

liberal zoological schtootzes are the worst kind of nutjobs. they cry for maneater crocodiles and shed tears for whenever a great white shark is killed because these types refuse to have any conception of anything above the wild beasts...especially humankind.

 

we're all just one big happy earth family of humans, crocs, great whites and polar bears. it is a sick disconnected form of human anti-socialism. animals over people.

 

truly sick and morally confused. so an 80 year old saltwater croc is dead...wonder how many human children it may have preyed upon in it's lifetime.

truly sick and morally confused. so an 80 year old saltwater croc is dead...wonde how many human children and may have preyed upon in it's life.

 

Or you two schtootzes could read the article and see that they were warning that, because the "alpha" croc had been killed, there would be a subsequent battle for dominance among the other males, which makes them all more aggressive, and therefore more dangerous to "human children".

 

But why pass up another opportunity to misconstrue something in an idiotic manner so that you appear more clueless than usual!

so the death of this alpha male croc concerns you because it puts the innocent children of queensland in peril? :lol:

 

I doan believe that of you or the schtootzes in queensland so upset over the demise of a crocodile. concern for kids is just a cover.

 

it's really all about preserving dangerous and lethal animal predators even at the jeopardy of human populations which imo is nothing less than morally reprehensible and maybe just a little bit borderline criminal too.

It doesn't concern me at all. I was just pointing out that you two were being idiots. Again. But that has quickly become redundant.

Living On The Moon May Happen By 2030, Scientists Claim

In a little over a decade, a small number of humans will be living on the Moon. Then in the following ten years, about a hundred more people will join them, according to Bernard Foing, a scientist at the European Space Agency (ESA).

 

He believes scientists, technicians, and engineers will be the first ones to officially call the lunar habit ‘home.’ By 2040, he imagines the population will be 100.

 

"In 2050, you could have a thousand and then... naturally you could envisage to have family" accompanying their loved ones there, Foing told AFP.

 

"There may be the possibility to have children born on the Moon," he added.

**************************************************

There's nothing to do up there for a 1000 people. Crazy scientists.

With the recent natural disasters, money can be better spent elsewhere.

 

Unless the ESA comes up with a reason i.e.

 

Come and live on the Moon - great place to make camp - no atmosphere therefore no hurricanes and tornadoes. :unsure:

Scientists have discovered a potentially suicidal problem with going to Mars

NASA is dead-set on sending astronauts to Mars within the next 15 to 20 years. China has said it hopes to send people there between 2020 and 2030, and even Russia is floating plans to put boots on the red planet.

 

Meanwhile, SpaceX founder Elon Musk is trying to cut the cost of spaceflight enough to start establishing a permanent Martian colony of 1 million people as soon as possible.

 

But if a study of radiation exposure in mice has any bearing on humans, going to Mars may be much more dangerous than anyone expected.

 

Cosmic rays are high-energy atomic and subatomic particles that get blasted out from exploding stars, black holes, and other powerful sources in space. The rays can damage DNA, increase the risk of cancer, lead to vision-impairing cataracts, cause nervous system damage, and give rise to blood circulation issues, among other health effects in astronauts.

*********************************************

I hope they build a hospital on Mars for all of the victims.
