Extraordinary Year End Mega-Post
ativan seizure dose*Sing it with me!* Should auld acquaintance be forgot, and never brought to mind ? Should auld da da da laaa la la, bladeedaaaah da Auld Lang Syne! (I’ve never been able to remember the words, nor have I ever been to a New Year’s celebration wherein this song is sung, but they do it in the movies so…. I tried.)
Another year has come and gone, and we’re now staring that infamous number in the face… 2012! (Cue scary dooooooom music) While we gird our loins for the year ahead, let us take some time to look back on the best moments of this site in 2011. You got it….it’s another Extraordinary Intelligence retrospective!! Now I’ll punch the secret code into the wayback machine *bleep bloop blip* and we’re off! If this were a sit-com, we’d now be fading out as the screen goes wavy….taking us to clips from episodes past.
The first post of 2011 was one of outrage at the climate change propaganda being spewed by the mainstream media. 2011 was a year of extremes, and there’s no doubt that our environment is in some form of upheaval, but to use it as an excuse to threaten the populace with police state tactics is inexcusable. Thus was the thrust of this post:
Speaking of environmental weirdness, 2011 was a year of anomalous happenings on terra firma and in the cosmos. Here’s a list of some of the more bizarre occurrences in the heavens and the earth.
In 2011, there seemed to be a severe lack of cool stories in the world of cryptozoology. Someone claims to have evidence of bigfoot, turns out to be a hoax. Someone who claims to have the carcass of chupacabra? Turns out to be a dog. So, I decided to stick to animals in the crypto world that stand a firm chance of being proven to exist. One of my favorites is the Tasmanian Tiger. Here’s my tribute:
Another topic of fascination for your intrepid blogger in 2011 was the entertainment industry. This is an area that I’ll return to in greater detail in 2012. To get yourself up to speed on events and entertainers discussed thus far, take a look at the links below:
One of the most viewed topics on Extraordinary Intelligence in 2011 was the failed rapture prediction of Harold Camping. As believers waited with bated breath to be swept away, most recognized that Camping’s prophetic words were decidedly un-Biblical. It would have been amusing if so many lives weren’t ruined waiting for the End.
Speaking of wacky cults…..
In 2011, I opined about a lot of world events. One of the items that most disturbed me was the announcement that Osama bin Laden had been killed.
One of my less successful undertakings in 2011 was my foray into the realm of podcasting. Lots of people listened, but I was less than impressed by the maiden voyage. I’ll be revisiting this experiment in the coming weeks.
In fact, I’ve got a whole new set up, a co-host, and a slew of celebrity guests ready to blow your mind with Extraordinary podcasting goodness!
As they say, stay tuned!
The following stories don’t belong in any particular category, but they were subjects that moved me in one way or another.
And finally, there was an epic personal transformation for Natalina in 2011. Below is my testimony.
