Weird 2010 continues...

When I wrote Part One of my look at the weirdness of 2010, I didn't really think there would be another, even larger, earthquake within a couple months. According to scientists, the really large earthquake in Chile probably briefly knocked earth off it's axis and caused us to lose 1.26 microseconds of time. If that isn't weird, I don't know what is.

Then there were the weird shootings/killings all within about a month. Yes, there are always such things, but not normally three such events in this country within a month. First, Dr. Amy Bishop, who shot and killed 3 of her colleagues because she didn't get tenure. Then there was Joseph Andrew Stack who flew his plane into a Austin IRS building, which actually killed nobody except himself. Some new interesting information I came across about Stack is that the hanger he kept his plane in was co-owned by John Podolak who is a senior official with Homeland Security. Make of that what you will.

Last, but not least, was the Pentagon shooter, J. Patrick Bedell. Like Stack, Bedell seems to have been a conspiracy monger. Loren Coleman has an interesting post about Bedell and his Amazon wish list here. In one synchronicity Bedell lists his location as Austin, Texas - the same city that Stack had just flown his plane into the IRS building. Aside from that, the book that catches my eyes (aside from the other conspiracy type books that I don't know anything about) is Exempt from Disclosure, by Robert Collins, with known disinformation agent, Richard Doty. So obviously he didn't have the best taste in books, though I must admit to having read it and I think I even wrote about it in Grey Matters a couple years ago. Certainly not the best book that someone interested in UFO conspiracy could choose to read. I have a feeling that we may learn of more weirdness concerning Bedell in the future.

Just earlier tonight was The Oscars and in keeping with weirdness, a woman, Kathryn Bigelow, won best director over her ex-husband, James Cameron. I liked The Hurt Locker, but I really would have never guessed it would even be nominated, let alone win both Best Director and Best Film. Had I been voting, I would have chose Inglorious Basterds as Best Film. Of course, I am not judging by the same criteria as those in the Academy are suppose to vote on. I simply know which film (that I saw, which is only about 3 of the nominated) that I enjoyed most. I have watched Inglorious Basterds twice now, once at the theater and once at home. I enjoyed it just as much the second time around. I don't think I will enjoy Avatar as much without the 3-D. Also, I didn't enjoy The Hurt Locker the first time, let alone watch it a second time. That doesn't mean it was bad, it wasn't. It was probably the most well done and most realist, but realism isn't really enjoyable to me. I am not a big fan of realism in films. I haven't seen Precious yet, but I am sure when I do that I will agree it is well done and yet I probably will never want to see it again.

Back to weirdness...

For about the past 2 weeks, I have had coyotes howling at my house every night, on and off for hours throughout the night. OK, maybe they are not howling at my house, but they are howling right behind it. I have had people suggest it is mating season or some sort of claiming of territory, but that type of stuff you would think would happen every year and yet out of over 15 years that I have lived here, this is the only time it has happened. Oh sure, I hear them howl occasionally, but not always right behind my house and not every night for hours. I hypothesize that it has something to do with that large earthquake in Chile and continuing aftershocks and earthquakes in other places, but I don't really know what the reason is. Perhaps they are just claiming territory. This is my first year with the yard fenced in, so they don't have my dog, Pooka, to chase (or herd) them back up into the mountains like she did in the past.

The weirdness continues, but no mass UFO sightings yet. Then again, most people are still suffering through colder temps and not outside as much. Maybe when summer comes we will have some interesting UFO related weirdness. I hope so!
