  • Another Doubtfire Movie?

    MRS. DOUBTFIRE is 21 years old.  Those kids that Robin Williams' character fought so hard to stay close to in the movie are all grown by now.  And while MRS. DOUBTFIRE was a very popular comedy, but it had all the serious undertones of divorce and coping with the difficulties of a family struggling through it.  So, someone thought the material could still work two decades later.  According to the Hollywood Reporter, a sequel is moving forward at Fox2000.  Chris Columbus and Williams would reunite for the film, under a script written by ELF's David Berenbaum.  Considering how old Mrs. Doubtfire is supposed to be in the original film, and that the kids have grown up, I assume that this will be about Daniel Hillard's grandchildren.  Perhaps all his kids are undergoing divorce and Hillard brings back Mrs. Doubtfire to entertain all the various grandchildren while their parents fight it out in court. Really? Read More
  • Will Ferrell And John C. Reilly Team Up Again For Laughs

    It may not be STEP BROTHERS 2 but to be honest this sounds even better.  Will Ferrell, John C. Reilly, and Adam McKay will re-team on a comedy entitled, BOARDER GUARDS. Ferrell and Reilly will play two friends who decide to try and help America by protecting the border between the US and Mexico. Eventually they end up in Mexico without identification and then must try to sneak back into the country. It sounds like it is going to be as crazy as TALLADEGA NIGHTS and STEP BROTHERS. Read More
  • Squirrel Causes Thousands In Damage During Suicide Attack!

    A squirrel paid the ultimate price for his curiosity, but not before causing $300,000 in damages to a $1.9 million community center in Indiana. The Journal Gazette in Fort Wayne reports that a squirrel made its way into the electrical system at the newly renovated complex. A massive power surge damaged three new HVAC systems and some parts of the boiler system, resulting in a repair bill of $300,000. The squirrel didn’t survive. This isn't the first time a squirrel has caused massive damage. Read More
  • What Is This Light On Mars?

    Do you see it? There's a little beacon of light in this photograph of Mars. It's on the left side of the photo and it's pretty darn bright. What could it be? More importantly, what do we want it to be? A Martian signal keeping track of the Curiosity rover? An alien laser beam? A key to a secret portal in the universe? A superhero? Anything in your imagination is way better than NASA's explanation of the light: which they're saying "might be due to the sun glinting off a rock or cosmic rays striking the camera's detector". No mention at all of the colonies we have had on Mars since the mid-80's. Another government cover up slowly falling apart thanks to the actions of our future alien overlords. Read More
  • The First of 4 Blood Moons Happens Next Week

    When you look outside late on April 14 or early April 15 and the moon is red, don't panic; it's just a full lunar eclipse. Why is it red? According to Sky & Telescope magazine  as the Earth moves directly between the moon and sun, scattered light from sunsets and sunrises on the edge of our planet are reflected on the moon's surface. "If you were standing on the moon during a total lunar eclipse you would see the Earth as a black disk with a brilliant orange ring around it, the brilliant ring would be bright enough to dimly light up the lunar landscape.

  • Mow Your Lawn At 116 MPH!

    Built in the UK by Honda's British Touring Car Championship, the 'Mean Mower' demonstrated its speed at a racetrack in Tarragona, Spain. Top Gear writer Piers Ward  beat the 2010 record of 96.5mph (155.3kph) made by a John Deere riding mower. To give the vehicle its rapid performance, Honda fitted it with a 1,000cc superbike engine. This gives it a greater power-to-weight ratio than a Bugatti Veyron and acceleration from 0-60mph in just four seconds. Read More
  • You No Longer Need A Paddle

    For the first time since the 1820s, the level of liquid flowing through Schitt Creek is at an all time low. Schitt Creek will no longer float your boat, or anyone elses. In fact scientists are saying it could be decades before anyone will actually need a paddle to get up Schitt Creek. The Army Corp of Engineers spokeman, Bernard Flapdoodle, says they have several ideas that could get the Schitt flowing freely again if the state approves their recomendations. Governor Curtis Goatheart reports he is willing to squeeze a chunk of money from the budget if it will get more floaters on the Schitt this summer. Read More

  • Suspended Animation Trials Begin

    At a hospital in Pittsburgh, surgeons are now allowed to place patients into a state of suspended animation. If a patient arrives with a traumatic injury, and attempts to restart their heart have failed — if they’re on the doorstep of death — they will have their blood replaced with a cold saline solution, which stops almost all cellular activity. At this point, the patient is clinically dead — but if the doctors can fix the injury within a few hours, they can be returned to life from suspended animation by replacing the saline with blood. Or at least, that’s the theory. The technique of suspended animation (or “emergency preservation and resuscitation” as non-sci-fi doctors prefer to call it) was first trialed on pigs in 2002. Hasan Alam, working with his colleagues at the University of Michigan Hospital, drugged up a pig, created a massive hemorrhage to simulate the effect of a massive gunshot wound, and then replaced its blood with a cold saline solution, cooling the pig’s cells to just 10 Celsius (50F). After the injury was treated, the pig was gradually warmed back up by replacing the saline with blood. Usually the pig’s heart started beating on its own, and despite the pig being dead for a few hours, there was no physical or cognitive impairment. Now, it’s time to try it out on humans. Read More

  • American Horror Will Be A FREAK SHOW Next Season

    The 4th season of American Horror Story will be called "Freak Show".  Each season this show has been one of the scariest shows around and this new season looks to be just as good. According to Entertainment Weekly, this season will be set in 1950s Jupiter, Florida. Jessica Lange will return to play a German expat running one of nation’s last freak shows.
    Kathy Bates, Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters, Angela Bassett and Frances Conroy are among the series regulars who will step back into the “American Horror Story” universe to play Lange’s freak show performers. Denis O’Hare and Emma Roberts are also reportedly in talks to return. Read More

  • Chicken From Hell Discovered

    It's called the chicken from hell: a birdlike dinosaur some 7 feet tall that weighed around 500 pounds when it roamed western North America on its long, slender hind legs. It  had a toothless beak and a crest on its skull like a rooster's comb, combined with long arms and sharp claws up to about 4 inches long. It apparently also had feathers over much of its body. The dinosaur lived some 66 million to 68 million years ago in a hot and humid landscape, rather like the Louisiana bayou. It ate plants and maybe small animals when it wasn't fleeing from a hungry and much bigger T. Rex.. The reason it is called chicken from Hell? It was found in the Hell Valley area of North and South Dakota. Read More
  • The Starfish Menace Is Real!

    The first Starfish attacks were reported in Rome by Dickus Maximus in 3BC. It took 3 entire legions to bring the menace under control. Little was heard from the Starfish community since those dark and troubled times. However those days are over. In the last 3 months there have been over 33 Starfish attacks on humans due to global warming, solar flares and underwater broadcasts of American Idol. These yellow devils have evolved to march out of the sea and attack humans on land! The government has doubled the number of SEAL Teams in hopes of stopping the Starfish menace before the media takes notice. I fear it may be too little too late. Please stay aware of your surroundings, especially near any water. Carry 3 packets of iodized salt and a whistle. Qucik thinking could save lives, maybe your own. Read More
  • Is That A Squirrel In Your Hair?

    Unlike many girls her age, Abby Putterill isn’t fussy about her hair. In fact, she’s more than comfortable with having a small rodent nesting in it. Putterill, 16, adopted Hammy, a mopane squirrel, two months ago after the tiny animal was found injured and abandoned at Zimbabwe’s Bally Vaughan Wildlife Sanctuary , which is owned by her parents. The schoolgirl said she grew up around animals and that she just let Hammy stay in her ponytail after he climbed in and got comfy one day. Besides sleeping and showering, the pair are virtually inseparable, she said. Tree squirrels in the region are commonly named mopane squirrels after the leafy African tree that the animals commonly live in. Read More

  • Remember The Alamo?

    This was the day the Alamo fell after a 13 day siege by Mexican troops under President General Santa Anna. All of the 180 defenders were killed, including Jim Bowie, William Barret Travis and frontier legend, Davy Crockett. Santa Anna's perceived cruelty during the battle inspired  a desire for revenge. The Texians defeated the Mexican Army at the Battle of San Jacinto on April 21, 1836, ending the revolution to make Texas a republic.  While the facts surrounding the siege of the Alamo continue to be debated, there is no doubt about what the battle has come to symbolize. People worldwide continue to remember the Alamo as a heroic struggle against impossible odds — a place where men made the ultimate sacrifice for freedom. For this reason, the battle inspired countless songs and at least 5 movies. The Alamo remains hallowed ground and the Shrine of Texas Liberty. Read More
