Weirdnesses

March 27th, 2007 (02:50 pm)

The French government has released its UFO files on the internet, here. Unfortunately, interest is such that the site has been down almost since it was launched, crashed by too many users trying to load the page. Or so They would have us believe. (By the way, the preceding link is paranoid baffle-gab, just so noone thinks I mean for it to be taken seriously.)

Also, a theory is now floating around that Harry Houdini was murdered by disgruntled and debunked mediums. Apparently, they are going to exhume Houdini and test his body for signs of poisoning. My favorite line from the article:

Kalush and Sloman say that "the Spiritualist underworld's
modus operandi in cases like this was often poisoning"

As if the spiritualist underworld wasn't cool enough, now we know they've poisoned multiple magicians and/or debunkers.

Things are going pretty well other than that, I bought more comics than I should have, probably, including all four parts of Darkman vs. The Army of Darkness and the more of All Star Superman, the Atom, and Justice. If you like comics, especially older comics, you might want to check out Peter Sanderson's Comics in Context. My cable company is being inscrutable. Someone left me a door tag saying that I had been stealing cable (I haven't) and so my service had been disconnected (I have actually lost about half my channels). I tried to call them, I can't get a live person on the phone, e-mail gets a form letter response, and their "live chat" operator disconnected after the third time it was explained to her that I didn't need her to check my billing records, that I had a technical problem.

Well, I am rambling, so I'll head off.

Everyone take care, and God bless.

You realize that you have been left with no alternative but to slay your cable company with a hammer. Ideally a ballpeen.

Also, it's good to see you posting again!

I finally got through to them, it turns out they gave us the expanded basic package way back when, instead of the basic package, and they just now figured it out. But intead of doing something crazy like, you know, informing me, they just click it off and imply I was stealing it. Lovely folks.

And thank you, it is good to be posting again. We've been running around like crazy people for weeks.
