Re: Unusual News of the Day

The facade of normal daily life is once again lifted to reveal what lurks beneath, potentially, in every human being. Heaven help us.

Re: Unusual News of the Day

Ben, I don't think this is quite the news you had in mind when you started this thread but it was such a pleasant experience I can't help myself...

I visited a friend today and as we sat outside sipping a beer in the sun, we watched two bears frolic at the end of the field behind his house. Quite a show; one was a 500 pounder if an ounce and the other a rather young fellow. Apparently these two performers have been coming around for a bit now. Quite nice. My post-surgery improved distance vision was a delight.

And now you can guess where I got the inspiration for my short-short, "Unbearable Horror."

In my own backyard, of course. Bears aren't uncommon on Bald Mountain. (Also one of the UFO hotspots in the world. Seriously. On a television special some years ago they covered The Mountain; and, in a few frames, my father's house is discernible.)

I think your post qualifies as "Unusual." Now if I started a thread "Morose News of the Day" I would definitely frown upon this.
I actually prefer your news to mine, that's for sure.

Re: Unusual News of the Day

Morgellon's Disease is pretty much like something out of a horror story. Apparently, Joni Mitchell is suffering from it.

Re: Unusual News of the Day

A week ago--seriously, a week ago-- a scientific report came out saying virtually all cancer is due to risky behavior, not genetic programing.
Then today we get this:
Scientists say cancer susceptibility is genetic | New York Post

My war on the Experts continues.

Sacred Vietnamese turtle, whose existence was connected to the country's folklore, has died.

Re: Unusual News of the Day

Making strides towards AI.

Scientists predict human thought in real time, nearly every time

Neuroscientists from the University of Washington have decoded brain signals in real-time and with astounding accuracy, as revealed in a recent study published in PLOS Computational Biology. Researchers attached electrodes to the temporal lobes of seven epilepsy patients for roughly one week -- the implants were part of a program that aimed to locate the sources of these patients' seizures, but while the electrodes were active, the patients also participated in this brain-wave study. Researchers were in the neighborhood, after all.
The participants viewed a series of houses and faces that appeared on a screen for 400 milliseconds at a time, and were told to look for the upside-down building. An algorithm tracked the brain waves of their temporal lobes, which deals in sensory input. By the end of each session, the program was able to pinpoint with roughly 96 percent accuracy which images the patients were looking at, in real time. The program knew whether the patient was seeing a house, a face or a gray screen within 20 milliseconds of actual perception.
"Clinically, you could think of our result as a proof of concept toward building a communication mechanism for patients who are paralyzed or have had a stroke and are completely locked-in."

Re: Unusual News of the Day

This is kind of grisly, but the reporter said it was like 'something out of a horror story' and the fact that it is taking place in Ligotti's old stomping grounds of Grosse Pointe, Michigan, I thought I would post it. Reminiscent of RLS's "The Body Snatchers."

Body-part dealer rented infected cadavers to students

http://www.nydailynews.com/news/crime/body-part-dealer-rented-infected-cadavers-students-article-1.2514657

A Detroit-area couple who ran a black-market body part business butchered donated cadavers with a chainsaw and sold the hacked, diseased pieces to unsuspecting medical students for a hefty profit, officials said.
