A compendium of news/articles/videos/pictures/events/stories that triggered the “Oh my god alarm!” Omygdaily – June 6 2016 edition will discuss:
- A tell-all book on Bill and Hillary by a former secret service officer.
- If you are a false prophet, you can fool most of the people most of the time.
- A life taken away too soon. One-year old killed because someone rear ended the car she in.
- Rescued from the sea after a 20 hour ordeal.
- Bullies always forget what they have done. One woman’s quest for answer from her bullies gets the usual, “I don’t remember…” response and more…
A tell-all book on Bill and Hillary by a former secret service officer. (Read More)
- I always question the motive behind a tell-all book by a “former public servant.” It happens in India, too. It seems these folks find their conscience after their retirement and only after their pension is secured. Prior to that, they are always “doing my job.” If they were so offended by what transpired when they were manning the post, they should have resigned as “conscientious objectors.” When they do it after their retirement or a few weeks before an election, then it makes their intention and their claim a big suspect. Now, having said that, Bill’s and Hillary’s past are replete with tales of sordid encounters. Google it, and you will find links to those stories. So, they, too, aren’t honesty, integrity and spirituality personified.
If you are a false prophet, you can fool yourself and most of the people most of the time. (Read More)
- I had talked about this exact behaviour of godmen and their blind followers in my first blog post, ‘Faux Leaders, False Prophets and Insouciant Worker Bees‘ How many people will those godmen cheat, hoodwink or kill before we say, “enough is enough.“
A life taken away too soon. One-year old killed because someone rear ended the car she in. (Read More)
- Why is life so cruel? Why take away something so young? Is it just plain luck or bad luck or random events, or is it all preordained. If it is preordained, then why give something to someone only to take it away. If it is because of Karma, then when does the Karma reset? After life has exacted its pound of flesh? It doesn’t make sense to me.
Rescued from the sea after a 20 hour ordeal (Read More)
- Now, contrast this story with the one above. Here, this gentleman survives the wrath of open sea, against all odds. He falls overboard in shark infested water, does not have a life vest on, treads water for 20 hours, almost catches hypothermia and is then rescued by the Coast Guard. Miracle? Of course. The dance of life is so mysterious.
Bullies always forget what they have done. One woman’s quest for answer from her bullies gets the usual, “I don’t remember…” response. (Read More)
- You have to taken on a bully head on. There is no two ways about it. If you don’t stand up to a bully, (s)he will continue with their bullying tactics forever.
Say what now?
A parrot probably witnessed the crime and knows the killer(s). (Read More)
- “Can we have the next witness, please? It is a parrot, your honor. Say what?“
Mark Zuckerberg’s social media accounts hacked. (Read More)
- You cannot make this up. The password for his account was “dadada”. Seriously? That was the password? And nobody asks him, “How can you claim to protect the personal details of more than a billion people, when you cannot even protect your own data because of a weak password?“
Somebody is really confused here. A goat thinks that the German Shepherd is his mom. (Read More)
- And I thought that humans are the confused lot. It seems we are rubbing off some of those attributes to our pets.
King Tut’s dagger forged from iron extracted from a meteorite (Read More)
- When this story first broke, it was, “King Tut’s blade made of meteorite“. Then it morphed into “King Tut’s dagger may have come from outer space“. Do you notice the subtle change in the title there? Somebody decided to make the headline a little more alarming. Then one of the publications said, “King Tutankhamun’s Dagger Was Literally Out Of This World“. Next, another claimed, “Extraterrestrial blade: King Tutankhamun’s dagger came from outer space“. Then another added a little twist, “King Tut’s Dagger Made of ‘Iron From the Sky,’ Researchers Say“. Then it became, “King Tut wielded a meteorite blade from the gods … sort of“. Ladies and gentleman, introducing hyperbole to you all! A round of applause for hyperbole, please?
