Millions Of Fish Wash Ashore In Gulfport

GULFPORT, Miss. -- Something besides oil washed ashore along a section of beach in Gulfport this week.

Millions of small dead fish have washed ashore just east of Jones Park. The fish are believed to be menhaden.

Low oxygen levels in the water are typically to blame when large numbers of the tiny fish wash up dead, experts said. Harrison County leaders said it's too soon to tell if the fish-kill is related to the oil spill.

“If it’s oil-related, the BP contractors will have to pick it up,” Harrison County Sand Beach Director Bobby Weaver said. “If not, we’ll dispatch a county crew to come down here and get it."

By early Monday afternoon, sand beach crews started scooping up the dead fish and raking the sand. They were loaded on a dump truck and taken to the landfill.

New Orleans City Council Reference to Marijuana

There was a whiff of extra excitement in the air last week when some marijuana enthusiasts read about the New Orleans City Council's decision to make pot possession a municipal offense, giving police the option of issuing a summons rather than arresting and booking an offender on state charges.

The reason for the buzz was that the council's ordinance said possession of marijuana would be a municipal offense unless the drug was "obtained directly or pursuant to a valid prescription or order from a practitioner."

That sounded to some folks as if the council, without any public discussion, had just legalized the use of marijuana for medical purposes in New Orleans.

Not so fast, dude.

Sinkhole Outbreak

There seems to be an outbreak of sinkholes around the world. Mainstream media is not picking up on this one yet. The question was asked in one article if this is a prelude to a worldwide disater. Good question.

Ancient Atomic War

Are the Indian remains of Mohenjo Daro and Harappa, their sudden abandonment and the apparent discovery of an ancient site with a layer of radioactive ash the best available evidence for the possibility that our ancient ancestors possessed a highly advanced technology – which might have included atomic warfare?

Did an ancient advanced – if not extra-terrestrial – civilisation exist on Earth? The question is very intriguing and despite the academic ridicule that has been bestowed on the likes of Erich von Däniken and Zecharia Sitchin, the idea has caught the world’s imagination, with the help of Hollywood and shows such as Stargate SG-1.

But apart from a battle for our hearts, there is also a battle for our minds: is there evidence that ET visited and lived here, millennia ago? Many possible scenarios and theories have been put forward, from statements that Atlantis was a high tech civilisation, leaving us an as yet undiscovered Hall of Records and the pyramid complex at Gizeh, to the possibility that the Nazca lines might be a prehistoric airport.

Say "High" to Santa for Me!

Greetings and holiday love, one and all. Not that fake ass holiday love that you get from the aggressive charity collector with the bell and the bucket in front of the supermarket, I offer you all the real shit, just like you get from Grandma.

Christmas is my favorite holiday, and not just because of the fact that you exchange gifts with loved ones, and celebrate, but because I’m aware of the original meaning behind it all.

And what would that be?

Buckle up for a good one…

Santa Claus was a magic mushroom.
