Abnormal News Day

I haven't done one of these in a really long time, but I'm not entirely sure why. There's been plenty of abnormal news. Oh well. Here we go again...

First up, can I just say:

WHAT is up with birds falling from the sky and fish suddenly dying in massive amounts?

Image: Dead birdsAccording to MSNBC, something like 5,000 blackbirds just dropped from the sky a few days ago. All of them dead or dying. Autopsies revealed no illnesses or poison. Odd.

Then in the SAME STATE (Arkansas) over 100,000 fish suddenly died in a river.

A few days later, 500 more birds fell from the sky in Louisiana. Not near me, thankfully. I would have freaked out had massive amounts of birds just randomly begun falling from the sky.

Then today it was reported that more birds suddenly died and fell out of the sky in Sweden and Kentucky.

Is it me or does this seem sort of like a Stephen King novel? Where's Jack Nicholson? If he starts acting weird, I'm building a bomb shelter.

Unkillable Cow

The next time you come across a cow, use caution. According to the story of an elderly woman, her husband was out repairing a fence when he was attacked by a crossbred cow. She heard his screams and ran to his aid to find that he had already shot the cow at least once with his .22 caliber pistol.

In order to help her husband, she hit the cow repeatedly with her husband's truck, which apparently didn't affect the cow. After that she shot it in the face several more times. The cow STILL didn't die. It was, however, contained. The elderly man was sent to the hospital in critical condition.

In my head all I can picture is this:

Close inspection of the cow revealed that it had radioactive chemicals in its bloodstream.

Just kidding.

Had you there for a second, didn't I?


  1. I cannot get over hte massive bird deaths. Every time I see someone I'm all "did you hear about the birds falling from the sky?"

  2. Ummm, Jess.. If Jack Nicholson STARTS acting weird??? No one plays psycho better than a psycho, so I have never really thought he's ACTING! That bird thing freaks me out, however. Is that like one of the "signs" or something?

  3. Yeah...the bird thing is making me more paranoid than a pot smoker in a room full of narcs. Seriously, that's like end of the world Bible crap right there!


  4. Those birds are seriously freaking me out!! WTF?!?!?!

  5. I'm carrying an umbrella in case birds start falling out of the West Virginia sky...can ya imagine walking down the street and a bird crashs into your head???

  6. omg...that whole cow thing sounds like a nightmare! lol And that bird thing sounds like an omen!

  7. That bird thing definitely feels like "end of days" stuff. So creepy. Once a bird fell out of the sky and dropped right in front of me while I was walking to class and that was pretty traumatic. I can't even begin to imagine how scary it would have been to see all those blackbirds.

  8. The bird thing was very weird, couldn't agree more. Hope all is well!
