Should I be worried? I’m beginning to wonder.
Admittedly I was joking just yesterday about the 1,000′s of birds falling from the sky in Arkansas lending to some sort of ‘end of the world’ scenario.
Now, adding THIS to the mix…
Thousands of dead fish have turned up in an Arkansas river just days after 3,000 birds mysteriously dropped dead from the sky, but authorities say the deaths are not related. [Come on, would they TELL us if they were? Pffft. Doubtful.]
An estimated 100,000 dead drum fish are floating along a 20-mile stretch of the Arkansas River and washing up on the river’s banks near the town of Ozark in the northwestern part of the state.
The dead fish were discovered just after 3,000 red-wing blackbirds fell from the sky in the town of Beebe, [no]more than 100 miles from the site of the dead fish. Officials, who tripled the early estimates of the number of dead birds, said the bird deaths may have been caused by lightning or by stress from fireworks and said they were unrelated to the fish kill. [Of COURSE they did.] [Read More]
I am not a big fan of ’end of the world’ scenarios and mostly think they are full of garbage, but one must admit, this is bothersome.
Especially after I read THIS and it got me thinking…
EAST ST. LOUIS, Ill. (AP) — Archaeologists who have uncovered the remains of a prehistoric city beneath what is now East St. Louis are trying to unravel why that ancient city was abandoned while another one just to the east managed to survive two more centuries.
Archaeologists believe Native Americans abandoned the city of roughly 3,000 or more people around the year 1200. That’s 200 years before a bigger settlement at nearby Cahokia Mounds ended inexplicably. [Read More]
Admittedly Illinois City is NOT this area of Arkansas, but I tell you if the archaeologists digging around in IL find the remains of thousands of dead birds and fish? I am going to jump on my crazy train here and say that YES someone is going to need to man-up and tell those living in Arkansas’ new Valley of the Dead to get the heck OUT OF THERE!
These two articles merged together in my head brought on some pretty apocalyptic thoughts…
I hate when that happens. My imagination on a GOOD day in way more than enough to contend with, thank you. No crazy fuel is needed.
Now I need to go rinse out my brain…
I’m thinking bleach.
