More creepy kids

After finding a dead baby bird in the driveway from a nest up above, my 4 year old told me he knows where to bury it so it will come back alive.

“Daddy, when can we get rid of that kid hanging in my closet?” I asked her what she was talking about and she told me all about a teenage boy who was hanging by a belt around his neck in her closet. I went to her closet there was nothing there, and she said he is only there when I’m not around.

My son was crying in bed at 3 am and tells us he is afraid because there is a man in his bed. We ask him about the man and tell him to ask the man to go away. The following day he tells us the man’s name is Frank…my husband’s uncle who died the night before. Also later that week we were driving along in our van in complete silence and my son said “Frank’s here.”

“There are three dead kids buried in our back yard. They told me where we can find them.”

My child comes into the house with a baby gecko latched onto his finger. He proudly says “Look Mom he likes my finger.” I say “Get him out before he gets loose in the house” My 3yr old then says “No. I'm going to put him in the drawer with all the baby frogs.” “What drawer has all the baby frogs in it?” “Hmmmm…the one in your closet.” he says. I recovered 3 baby frogs from my bathing suit drawer.

My brother was giving all the kids candy. One of my daughter’s friends was over and my brother asked her, “you want some candy little girl?” She said, “you’re supposed to be behind a bush when you say that”

My son was crying in his room saying mummy Elmo keeps talking to me, I went in his room and tickle me Elmo was laughing…..ummm he had no batteries!!

“Mommy, there’s a kid covered in blood in my bedroom and he won’t go away.”

My son, Mason, told my fiancé he was going to cut his heart out and eat it.. He’s 3.

Multi~ Vs Poly~

The other day a student asked me what the difference between the prefixes "multi-" and "poly-" was, and if they were interchangable. Well I knew they were synonymous (have the same meaning) but they are not intrchangeable and I didn't know why. Well I did some research and it turns out, multi- is derived from Latin & the words to which it is prefixed tend to be from Latin too. (as in multilinguist) poly- is from Greek & the words to which it is prefixed tend to be from Greek (as in polyglot, which is essentially the same as multilinguist). When the words were created, it seems that hybrid Greek-Latin forms were undesirable, though there are some examples like monolinguist (hybrid version) & monoglot (Greek version).

It's that time of year again. 
Every summer, Australia has bush fires. 
In particular the blue mountains area near Sydney. 
They are very dangerous, but at the same time beautiful. 
Click the picture above for some interesting 
photographs of the fires happening right now.

Creepy things kids say #1

My daughter had an imaginary friend named Sally, she told me once about how Sally was in jail for chopping her mom’s head off...

Two years ago my door bell rang. When I answered there was a little kid 4 or 5 standing there that I didn’t recognize. Before I could say anything, she yelled “just so you know it’s your turn to die!” and she disappeared around the corner again. I followed but couldn’t see her anywhere. Luckily I didn’t die.

My 5 year old handed me a rock and said, “You can use this for your grave.”

My daughter when we were home alone one night, “mommy, who’s that man on the ceiling?”

My kids ( ages 5,4,&3) are constantly talking about the “bloody girls” in their rooms. They each go into detail about them. Their names… Their clothes, what they talk about. It started when my oldest had just turned three. He said that they had been in a small green car, that fell in the water. The water turned red and their mommy and daddy were really sad. He said they liked their rooms because they have fun toys.

My son (3 at the time) threw a huge tantrum when we were trying to leave the house because he “didn’t want to crash and die”. After about 10 minutes he just stopped and was ready to go. As we were walking out of the house there was a very bad accident on the street in front of our house – right where we would have been driving if he hadn’t thrown his fit.

“The shadow man keeps talking to me at my window.”

I was reading a story to my daughter when she suddenly slammed it shut, point to the empty doorway, and screamed “you get out of here! You’ve killed enough people!”

My 2yr old talks and walks in his sleep. About a month after his second birthday I heard him talking in his sleep in the middle of the night so I thought aww cute I will go listen. Peeked in and he was sitting bolt upright in bed eyes wide open hands folded in lap. He said, “naughty mummy. Naughty daddy. No more mummy, no more daddy.” Then he laughed really creepily lay down and started snoring.

A Real Life Iron Man?!!

Yup that's right!  The US military has been working on an exoskeleton with innovative armor, displays for power monitoring, health monitoring, and integration of a weapon system.  It is called the Tactical Assault Light Operator Suit, or TALOS for short.  This suit will be very light weight mainly because it uses a liquid that can turn into a solid in a millisecond with the proper electric current.  Here is a video that gives you an idea of what the suit is like:

Pretty cool? What do you think???

Radio Halloween!

Time for some creepy music.
Can anyone guess which famous pop-star is singing the chorus?

Halloween at USJ

I went to USJ yesterday to see their special 
Halloween events. The Hamunaputra/Mummy Museum 
was OK but is pretty much just a haunted house, and 
not even really that Egyptian themed. But it's scary,
my arm still hurts from where my girlfriend squeezed 
too hard. The Bio-hazard experience was cool, you run 
through with a toy gun and shoot actors dressed as 
zombies and monsters. My girlfriend's gun didn't work the 
first time so we got to go again and see the 2nd maze 
(There are two paths you can take) we were kinda lucky.
In the evening there was a zombie parade and many
of the attractions became Sadako themed. The 
Terminator-Sadako was creepy (not really terminator 
just 'The Ring') but 'Backdraft-Sadako' sucked almost as
muck as the regular Backdraft, which is a a lot. We were 
very tired at the end of the day, but we had great fun.

US Government is Closed?!!

Yes, that is correct.  The US Government is officially shutdown.  It started on October 1st and we don't know how long it will last.  All national facilities are closed and government offices are closed as well.  So most government workers get a nice holiday.  Too bad for the mail guy because he still has to work.  Either way this shutdown affects everyone and I hope it ends soon.  How did this happen?  Well, a few people could not decide how to spend money that doesn't exist.

Beautifully Creepy

A lake in Africa is so full of calcium that it freezes the birds who swim in it.
