Have an amazing Halloween! 

Boo,

Creepy Cabinet

The ghost, the girl and the wardrobe.

wardrobe

This might be up there in the list of it seemed like a good idea at the time purchases. Who, couldn’t resist a beautiful wardrobe? Definitely not Linda Bell, the owner of The Olden Ewe antique shop in Devon, UK. Good price and lovely piece but that wasn’t all apparently. As soon as the wardrobe arrived staff notice its Satanic head carved into the door and began to worry it may have ties to dark powers. If that wasn’t enough, soon the wardrobe began locking and unlocking and swinging open its doors. There’s also been a cool chill around it and people have felt a little girl inside it. Needless to say the shop is anxious to have it find a new home.

Factually, the ‘satanic head’ is likely a rams head or an old Green Man more than likely totally innocent in it’s decorative purposes. The fact there’s a coolness around it and it opens on it’s own, well a little less innocent. Though I can’t help wondering if it’d pick out an outfit?

Crystallize your Memories

More stuff that makes me wonder where sci-fi writers really get ideas from, LOL.

news-crystal-caves

Scientists at Southampton University have come up with a memory crystal that will outlive us. Its a fused silica quartz that is inspired by Superman’s unique storage and it can hold 360 TB of data as well as withstanding temperatures of over 1800 F.

So, let’s get this right… When people suggest ancient civilizations might have just done this, they get laughed at. When people said perhaps some crystal skulls might just be doing this, they get laughed at. When Superman does it (well more correctly his ancestors) it’s cool. And now science does it and it’s amazing.

Seriously gang it’s stuff like this that lets me know why aliens don’t visit us openly. We had suggestions of this for years and it was poo-pooed away as being ideas of crackpots. We have this illusion we know so much but really we’re maybe getting into kindergarten. We have to not be ashamed of different ideas. Sure, they’re all not going to be feasible or even workable but that one off the wall idea might just be the one that sparks one that will. It pays to have an open mind and entertain possibilities.

Naughty Aliens

Or, when aliens evict us.

news-war-of-the-worlds

So I get that Mr Hawking is a terribly smart man and probabilities dictate a few choices based upon them. Frankly I’m not even really doubting the possibility of  hostile aliens.  My issue with his statement that we should be worried about aliens bumping us off for our planet, is wouldn’t it have happened by now. I mean let’s face it unless they were sneak attacked, they should have way better comprehension, knowledge, abilities and technology. There shouldn’t be a natural disaster or pathogen they wouldn’t see coming and be able to deal with. They should have gotten beyond open hostilities based solely on the fact they’ve lived long enough to become so advanced. What on earth (no pun intended) would prompt them to wipe us out, other then us being jerks, if they haven’t done so by now.

I’m frankly tired of scare tactics and fear mongering no matter where or who it comes from. And besides that, who’d want to come visit us anyways? Humanity has tended towards ignorance, violence and aggressive to the point of stupidity towards each other and the planet that’s keeping us alive. Not the kind of vacation I’d want.
