The monster of your Nightmares, black it stands as night!

[Source]

If shape it might be called that shape had none
Distinguishable in member, joint, or limb;
Or substance might be called that shadow seemed,
For each seemed either–black it stood as Night,
Fierce as ten Furies, terrible as Hell,
And shook a dreadful dart: what seemed his head
The likeness of a kingly crown had on.
Satan was now at hand, and from his seat
The monster moving onward came as fast
With horrid strides; Hell trembled as he strode. ~John Milton, Book II Paradise Lost

Nightmare
(Now your nightmare comes to life)

Dragged you down below
Down to the devil’s show
To be his guest forever
(Peace of mind is less than never)
Hate to twist your mind
But God ain’t on your side
An old acquaintance severed
(Burn the world your last endeavor)

Flesh is burning, you can smell it in the air
‘Cause men like you have such an easy soul to steal (steal)
So stand in line while they ink numbers in your head
You’re now a slave until the end of time here
Nothing stops the madness turning, haunting, yearning, pull the trigger

You should have known
The price of evil
And it hurts to know that you belong here, yeah
Ooooh
It’s your f*ck*n’ nightmare
(While your nightmare comes to life)

Can’t wake up in sweat
‘Cause it ain’t over yet
Still dancin’ with your demons
(Victim of your own creation)
Beyond the will to fight
Where all that’s wrong is right
Where hate don’t need a reason
(Loathing self-assassination)

You’ve been lied to just to rape you of your sight
And now they have the nerve to tell you how to feel (feel)
So sedated as they medicate your brain
And while you slowly go insane they tell ya
“Given with the best intentions,
Help you with your complications”

You should have known
The price of evil
And it hurts to know that you belong here, yeah
No one to call
Everybody to fear
Your tragic fate is looking so clear, yeah
Ooooh
It’s your f*ck*n’ nightmare
Hahahaha

(Hahahahahahahahahahahahaha)

Fight (fight)
Not to fail (fail)
Not to fall (fall)
Or you’ll end up like the others
Die (die)
Die again (die)
Drenched in sin (sin)
With no respect for another

Oh

Down (down)
Feel the fire (fire)
Feel the hate (hate)
Your pain is what we desire
Lost (lost)
Hit the wall (wall)
Watch you crawl (crawl)
Such a replaceable liar

And I know you hear their voices
(Calling from above)
And I know they may seem real
(These signals of love)
But our life’s made up of choices
(Some without appeal)
They took for granted your soul
And it’s ours now to steal
(As your nightmare comes to life)

You should have known
The price of evil
And it hurts to know that you belong here, yeah
No one to call
Everybody to fear
Your tragic fate is looking so clear, yeah
Ooooh
It’s your f*ck*n’ nightmare

Bats love school, pizza and having scary-fierce names?

Speaking of nightmares of historic, traumatizing proportions?

Bats

Cut little buggers, but they have one fierce reputation…

No matter the setting.

[via News.com.au]THERE was no sign of Dracula, but students in Transylvania did get a visit from dozens of bats that flapped through their classroom.

The students at Csiky Gergely high school in the western Romanian city of Arad were about to take an exam this morning when they found bats flying around the room. Others appeared to be sleeping with their wings spread out on the floor.

School official Mirela Aldescu told Romanian newspaper Adevarul that the creatures had probably flown in overnight through open windows.

She says that rather than disturb them they took the exam in another classroom.

Transylvania was home to Vlad the Impaler, the 15th-century ruler who inspired Bram Stoker’s Dracula, which has spawned dozens of movies and superstition about garlic, holy water – and vampire bats.[Read More]

Not to mention?

Bats…

Now they are named for a demon.

And not just ANY one…

But THE one.

[via Wired]Three new bat species, one resembling the Lord of the Underworld, have been discovered in the tropical forests of southern Indochina.

The tiny ‘demon,’ named Beelzebub’s tube-nosed bat, has been seen only in Vietnam.

“We chose the name Beelzebub to reflect the dark ‘diabolic’ coloration of the new species and its fierce protective behavior in the field,” said Gabor Csorba of the Hungarian Natural History Museum.

Bats represent nearly a third of the known mammal species in South East Asia already. But the true number of bat species in the region may be twice current count, based on recent genetic research, said Paul Racey, bat specialist and Vice Chairman of Fauna and Flora International, in a press release today.

 

Murina beelzebub, like the other two tube-nosed bats discovered, depends on the tropical forest for its survival. The bats are especially vulnerable due to ongoing deforestation in the region, researchers warn.

The new bats, found by biologists and conservationists from the Hungarian Natural History Museum and Fauna & Flora International, are described in the current issue of the Journal of Mammalogy . [Read More]

Which definitely doesn’t do much to lessen the terror of their rep.

Now that I think about it though…

Neither does attacking, biting children in the Wal-Mart pizza aisle to the point of traumatized catatonia!

[via CBS Local] A 5-year-old North Branch girl is recovering after an unusual run-in with a bat at a retail store.

On these final days of summer, Zoe Zachrison would normally be enjoying the outdoors. Instead, she’s barely able to move, all because of what happened on a trip to a Wal-Mart in Cambridge.

She’s very traumatized,” said Holly Townley, Zoe’s mother.

Last week, Zoe and her mom were grocery shopping.

“She was sitting in the child part of the cart, minding her own business,” said Holly.

When they walked down the frozen food section, they encountered the unexpected visitor.

“The bat flew down the pizza aisle, flew back at us, flew down and landed on her, attacking her and bit her leg,” said Holly.

Her left leg still has a mark from the bat bite. On her right leg, is a mark from the painful treatment that followed.

“She had a series of three shots for rabies,” said Holly.

Although doctors don’t know for sure whether or not the bat had rabies, they consider it rabid because bats don’t bite, Holy said. [Read More]

An incident more than enough to turn ANYONE off Pizza for good…

And what a nightmarish a thought is that?

Yikes!

Who knew bats could be such trouble makers…

Did you?

Are nightmares spawned by circadian rhythm, or awake-inspired stupidity?

Those who prefer nightlife or day-life are supposed to be cursed with nightmares…

Or so this scientific survey tells us.

[via Scientific American] Night owls might think staying up late is a real hoot, but a new study hints that delayed sleep might have a sinister side. People who hit the sack late might have a greater risk of experiencing nightmares, according to scientists, although they add that follow-up research is needed to confirm the link.

“It’s a very interesting preliminary study, and we desperately need more research in this area,” says Jessica Payne, director of the Sleep, Stress and Memory Lab at the University of Notre Dame, commenting on the new findings.

Previous reports have estimated 80 percent of adults experience at least one nightmare a year, with 5 percent suffering from disturbing dreams more than once a month. The new paper, from a group of scientists writing in the journal Sleep and Biological Rhythms, surveyed 264 university students about their sleep habits and frequency of nightmares, defined as “dysphoric dreams associated with feelings of threat, anxiety, fear or terror.”

The scientists, led by Yavuz Selvi at the Yuzuncu Yil University in Van, Turkey, used a measure known as the Van Dream Anxiety Scale to assess the rate of bad dreams. Specifically, study participants were asked to rate their frequency of experiencing nightmares on a scale from zero to 4, corresponding to never and always, respectively.

On average, individuals who described themselves as evening types had a score of 2.10, whereas their morning-type equivalents averaged 1.23 on the scale, a significant difference according to the authors of the study.

The Turkish study follows from a larger online survey of nearly 4,000 people that found hints of an association between being a night owl and nightmares among women beginning in their 20s. Those results from Tore Nielsen, director of the Dream and Nightmare Laboratory at the Sacre-Coeur Hospital in Montreal, were published in 2010 in the Journal of Biological Rhythms. “I was pleased to see that they replicated the association between being an evening person and having nightmares,” Nielsen says. But he adds that more research is needed into how this might play out according to a person’s sex: “Men and women have very different emotional systems, and I think we’re seeing a different expression of that difference in nightmares.”

Experts are intrigued by the idea that a person’s daily body cycle, known as the circadian rhythm, might be linked to nightmares. “I think it’s certainly of interest,” says Russell Rosenberg, director of the Atlanta School of Sleep Medicine & Technology and chairman of the National Sleep Foundation. “There’s certainly not a lot of research in this area.” [Read More]

As someone who revels the peaceful hours of the night, it can be attested…

That it is NOT staying awake at night that brings nightmares home to roost.

What is?

Awake-inspired stupidity.

Such as, for example?

The thought of children being eaten ALIVE by a giant eagle…

Which just so happens?

Is now very much a possibility thanks to the stupid interference of conservationists who do not know how to keep their ‘do-gooder’ hands out of Mother Nature’s business.

Idiots.

[via Gawker]The Scottish government recently imported 14 sea eagles from Norway, to reintroduce the giant bird of prey into the wilds of Scotland. Unfortunately, they have chose areas not quite wild enough, according to the Scottish Gamekeepers Association, which is calling for an inquiry into the feathered monsters with wingspans of up to eight feet:

These creatures are being released into what is a comparatively densely populated area so they will come into contact with humans on a daily basis. That will instil habituated behaviour and remove what should be a healthy fear of humans. There are reports of buzzards which have obviously undergone this desensitisation and this has resulted in them attacking people. This could pose a serious threat in the future.

Will these very large creatures differentiate between a small child and more natural quarry?

[Read More]

When it comes to children being carried off and consumed? Gonna go out on a limb here and say this is one instance (children getting eaten by Big Bird), where, “Oh, my bad” just doesn’t cover the terror.

Stupid conservationists.

Jeez, guys take a break from ‘saving’ Nature will ya.

Please.

And let me keep to the nightmarish monsters of my own mental making…

Not YOURS!

Thanks.

UFO faked footage, UFO sightings increase and one very disturbing image!

But you have to wait for it.

Could it be…

That something as simple as our ease to access world-wide information/news is what is making it SEEM that UFO sightings are increasing, because some very industrious individuals are out there making UFOs their path to fame?

[via Daily Mail] For an alien looking to explore Earth, the frozen wastes of Siberia may not be the most attractive of landing locations.

But if this film footage is to be believed, that’s exactly where these ‘little green men’ chose to land their UFO.

The clip, filmed in the remote Irkutsk region of Siberia, appears to show a strange glowing craft and five aliens walking about in the snow.

It shows what seems to be an alien about four feet tall, standing 15 feet away from its glowing craft, with four other similar figures nearby.

The short clip was taken two days after mysterious lights illuminated the Siberian night skies above Bayanday, also in Irkutsk.

‘These two videos from two independent witnesses show that a UFO event of Roswell-sized proportions has taken place in Russia,’ said UFO expert Mike Cohen.

‘Two days after these clips were taken the town of Bayanday reported a crash of a huge pink and blue glowing object.

‘An enormous explosion was then heard over a wide area.’

He claimed police and rescue departments were flooded with phone calls from frightened residents.

‘The military soon confirmed that it had not been doing any exercises in the area and therefore cannot be responsible for any reports of UFOs,’ he added.

But he claims the authorities organised a cover-up of the UFO landing.

Officials declared the event classified and told journalists the area of impact would not be revealed, he said.

Only hours prior to the March 1 event, air-traffic controllers in Yakutks, Siberia, claim to have picked up a UFO on radar traveling at 6000 mph at a height of 65,000ft.

When they tried to speak with the crew of the craft they heard bizarre cat noises being uttered to them.

‘What I want to know is did the craft actually crash at all or was this just a noisy landing?’ said Mike.

The latest UFO claim to come out of Siberia comes months after the apparent discovery of an alien’s body was revealed as a hoax.

In April, two students who claimed to have recovered the body from a UFO crash site admitted that the creature was in fact made out of BREAD.

Friends Timur Hilall, 18, and Kirill Vlasov, 19, shot the video that showed the alien’s mangled remains frozen in snow in Irkutsk, Siberia.

The pair were questioned by police over their ‘extraterrestrial discovery’ but admitted to their stunt.

But not before their creation became an internet sensation, drawing almost 700,000 hits on YouTube.

Their find was deemed serious enough for the Kremlin to get involved and a spokesman from the Russian interior ministry confirmed the hoax.

‘We found the alien in one of the student’s homes,’ he said.

‘It was lying under his bed and an examination of it revealed it had been made of bread crumbs which were covered in chicken skin.’

Prosecutors are now considering whether or not the pair have committed any crimes. [Read More]

Or…

What if actual statistics existed to back up the claim of a UFO sightings increase.

Would that make you feel more at ease, and willing to believe the data?

[via HuffPo] The Mutual UFO Network – the largest privately funded UFO research organization in the world — tells The Huffington Post that more people than ever are reporting unidentified flying objects, mostly in the United States and Canada.

“Over the past year, we’ve been averaging 500 sighting reports a month, compared to about 300 three years ago [67 percent],” MUFON international director Clifford Clift said.

“And I get one or two production companies contacting me every week, wanting to do stories on UFOs.”

So far this week, mysterious aerial lights in Laredo, Texas, and Kansas City, MO., lived up to, at least initially, the strict definition of UFOs, namely “Unidentified” Flying Objects.

That, of course, doesn’t mean that little green men are watching us. It’s generally accepted that 95 percent of all sightings are easily dismissed. Some turn out to be conventional aircraft, others are satellites or weather balloons — and then there are the hoaxers with Photoshopped concoctions.

In the case of the Kansas City sighting, the UFOs turned out to be the Army Golden Knights parachuting team, performing a nighttime jump. But the explanation for the blinking light over Laredo is still up for grabs.

However, the remaining 5 percent of all UFO reports aren’t as easily explained. And many of them are reported by commercial and military pilots. [Read More]

Comfortable with the claims, are you?

Well, hmm…

Read the article below?

Then ask yourself, “Just how comfortable are you now?”

[via Metro.Co.Uk] Residents of the Guatemalan village have decided that the pig’s odd human-shaped head is the doing of visitors from outer space, after strange bright lights were spotted hovering in the sky on the night of its birth.

Not so much, I imagine.

Aliens, after our pigs?

Sick bastards.

Kermit would not approve.

Poor piggies.

No jobs added in August, but that’s OK, bosses are psychopaths anyway!

Need a fine example that views can change all depending on how one tilts their head?

OK…

Try this.

Take the new report that showed a ZERO net job growth for the month.

[via Michelle Malkin] After today’s report of ZERO net job growth, the New York Times “reports” on the “demeaning” “new” label:

G.O.P.’s New Obama Label: President Zero

It took the Republican National Committee exactly 94 minutes to coin a new, demeaning title for Barack Obama: President Zero.

In an email to reporters, the R.N.C. took note of the worst job report in nearly a year, saying that there has been “two and a half years of Obamanomics and nothing to show for it.”

The monthly report, which showed a 17,000-job gain among private employers but no growth overall, provides Mr. Obama’s Republican rivals with the perfect opportunity to criticize him as they prepare to gather for another nationally-televised debate next week.

And it gives Mr. Obama an even more gloomy backdrop for the jobs speech he will give to a joint session of Congress next Thursday. In the speech, Mr. Obama is expected to call for a renewed national effort to put people back to work and trim the nation’s deficit.

It’s not a “new” nickname. It’s just been re-confirmed.

In response to the dismal zero-growth news and jobless rate stuck at 9.1 percent, President Zero’s Labor Secretary Hilda Solis told a cable news anchor this morning:

“I do feel like we’re going in the right direction…”

Right off the cliff… [Read More]

Bad news right?

But for those who don’t actually HAVE jobs, because Obama has no freaking clue what the HECATE he is doing…

Bright side?

Well, you don’t have to deal directly with a psychopath…

Who would 25% likely be your boss anyway!

And pffft, who wants that?

[via Mediaite]Here’s an interesting story. So interesting that, when I sent it to my editor as a passive aggressive insult, he misunderstood it as a story pitch.

A new psychological study has found that 25% of “company high-flyers” may actually be psychopaths, able to move up in the business through charm and “business language.” These findings are fascinating and also may help me conclude my own year-long experiment in which I’ve tried to come up with a headline that will get posted on more cubicle walls than a Dilbert comic. Take that, Scott Adams.

From the Daily Mail:

“[New York psychologist Paul Babiak] designed a 111-point questionnaire with the University of British Columbia’s Prof Bob Hare – the world’s pre-eminent expert in psychopathy and a regular adviser to the FBI – to determine how many industry bosses were psychopaths.

They found that nearly 4 per cent of bosses fitted the profile, compared with 1 per cent among the general population.

Dr Babiak said: ‘These were all individuals who were at the top of an organisation – vice-presidents, directors, CEOs – so it was actually quite a shock.’

The results revealed that psychopaths were actually poor managerial performers but were adept at climbing the corporate ladder because they could cover up their weaknesses by subtly charming superiors and subordinates.”

See?

Tilt head one way…

News of no jobs added is bad.

Tilt your head another way?

News is still bad, but now funny, cause what else are you going to do in this Obama Economy except laugh?

Really…

At this point?

It’s very much the only option you have.

Now…

Anyone have a stamp?

[via Newslite]A video of a bully cat stuffing another pussy into a cardboard box and then trapping it by sitting on top of the box has become an online hit.

The 90 second clip starts off with a white kitty sitting and playing in an discarded open box as couple of other kitties entertain themselves.

But then a grey moggie strolls up behind the pen open and jumps up on the open flap, closing the box on top of the white cat — trapping it in the box.

The grey cat then jumps up on the box and sits on top of the lid as the white bullied cat tries to escape… without much look.
After a few seconds the bully cat decides to release the captured kitty  and jumps back off the box to let it out. [Read More]
