Yes, my little zombie snacks; it's that time of the week again. I have more weird news thanks to Huff post and a few other sites. Hope you enjoy the latest in weird.
This came from the Upworthy site by Adam Mordecai. How to get the politicians to admit that our climate is changing and not for the good? You'll love this solution:
I've always thought that some of my relatives were a little strange, and now I know why. From Huffington post science:
From the weird news section of Huff post we have this story:
I've always wondered why we don't have a museum for Tesla. I guess other's are asking the same question. From G4 and Huffington post, we have:
To end this week's weird news update, I have this little gem. In honor of the first man on the moon, a tribute from NASA:
Stay safe; run fast, my little zombie snacks. See you next week and if you come across an interesting article; submit it to me.

No, I didn't see zombie fishes at the Art Museum; that story I'll tell at the end of this post. But, I did go to the Art Museum in Philadelphia and I can tell you about the wonderful experience. My sister, Lucy, and I have been trying to get to the Art Museum all summer, but it was hectic with my sister Jane's visit.
For all of you who have been following the "Sister Episodes," Jane is home safe and has a new grandson named Joshua.
After spending hours enjoying European and Asian art, we had time for lunch in the impressive cafeteria. I intend to visit the museum again next month.
Having worked at a museum, I know how important floor staff is and I have to say that the Security staff and docents were outstanding. Every single staff person was pleasant and helpful and knowledgeable.
If you're visiting the Art Museum, make sure to say hello to Stephanie for us. She and all the other floor staff went out of their way to make this an enjoyable day for "The Sisters"
Did this help? Hell no! But she did notice that the newer fish, who we will call Merle, was pecking at the other two. After a few days, the other two fish were dead and Merle was swimming around with a “Make My Day” tee-shirt; not a good sign.
Lucy went back to the pet store to buy more goldfish and asked the clerk if goldfish eat other goldfish, if they’re all the same size. The clerk didn’t think so, and Lucy brought home the two new and larger sized goldfish. Larger because she thought Merle would behave if the other fish were larger than him. Ha!
Merle attacked the other fish like they were piñatas. What do you do with a zombie fish? Lucy had to play Rick Grimes and take matters into her own hands.
To make a long story short, the remaining fish are doing fine, although a bit jittery when Lucy passes the tank.
Speaking of zombies, make sure to watch the premiere of Season 4 of "The Walking Dead" this October 13th. Let me know if you see Merle the goldfish.

A little science from Huff Post Science: Sometimes bigger is not better:
From Huff Post: So maybe that bad boy or girl that you love so much in spite of the pain is really BAD!
In the "if only" department we have this article from Huff Post. My question? Would John like how messed up the world is now?
I saved this upsetting article for last. Who is this crazy as bat shit woman? And hopefully, the child has been taken away from her.

WTF! Did the writers all get writer’s block at the same moment? Why did they have Sookie’s grandfather save the day? Why didn’t he save her while she was still in faerie land? What was Eric doing sunbathing in Sweden, instead of warning the vampires around the world of the tainted blood? When he flew away, that’s where we all assumed he was doing. Eric is thousands of years old and I’m pretty sure he would have brought a cloak with him; just in case. But, no! The writers did away with him or at least that’s what it looks like.
And as far as Alcide and Sookie together; I don’t think so. How did Sam become Mayor? Where is the former Mayor? Protection for blood: yeah right! I don’t think the townsfolk of Bon Temps are that naïve. Zombie vampires heading towards the town was laughable. Leave the zombies to people who really know how to use them. I’m talking “The Walking Dead.”
