Fear the Walking Dead web series

Flight 462 web series will begin in October. 

From the article:
"this new series, Fear the Walking Dead: Flight 462, will tell the story of a commercial flight in the early goings of the outbreak as a passenger is discovered to be infected. The first episode will debut on on Oct. 4."

A zombie outbreak on a commercial flight has got to be hella scary!

Social Media Fallout... 

Watching the social media fall out from the Nurses The View comments is interesting... So is everything that happened with Ahmed. Regardless of how you feel about either of these things, Its pretty clear from these very current events that what happens in social media can seriously change the course of peoples lives.

It's like we are voting every day, when we share and discuss things on issues that matter to us, and eventually these things trend.
After tending... all the traditional media writes about it now. We are making the news in a lot of ways. It's pretty scary actually...

The president and various companies around the world did not issue "press releases" to invite people to the white house or their company... They posted Twitter updates and Facebook posts. Traditional media is becoming less important?

One wrong message typed by you person reading this... could easily destroy your entire life... or similarly One right one, could change everything and let you meet the President or Ellen ;)... That's a lot of power to have in the hands of the average social media user... and it certainly didn't exist a few years ago... :P

+Charlie Sill This isn't the right place for a scriptural discussion, but the Internet has been used much for good, and I would not consider it as the beast. That's all I'll say on this.

School Shootings Around the World

This is relevant... again...

Come on America.... wake up! :(
I usually keep my posts here out of politics and post happy fun things, but today I came across this article showing school shootings around the world since 1996.Notice anything strange about this world map? Why does all of China, India, Africa  Australia, The Middle East, ...

+Rainbow Gardens USA, number of rapes per capita(100k):  26.6

Countries lower leels of gun ownership: Slovakia 1.6, Greece 1.5, Canada 1.5, Japan 1.0

So guns prevent rape do they?

There is only ONE crime that guns are shown to reduce the frequency of. Knife attacks... why? Because they are replaced with shootings instead, so become far far more serious since a shooting has a much much higher chance of causing a fatality or serious injury. 

Most crimes are committed by cowards. Having a gun makes cowards feel brave. Having a knife where you have to get in arm's reach of someone doesn't do the same. 

The ONLY countries where they have high gun-ownership and don't have the problems you do in the states have tight restrictions on gun-ownership. 

And yes, 'gun free' areas are stupid because unless you have armed guards and searches at every entrance, anyone intent on commiting a crime can just ignore them. 

I'm not so keen on the idea of 'random' people pulling out guns and trying to shoot the shooter however. 
Generally when that happens you end up with more civilians dead not less as unsurprisingly, civilians are trained how to act in a gun-fight. Was only last week a civilian was shot in the head and killed by a 'white knight' with a gun trying to prevent him from getting car-jacked.

When traveling it can be nerve racking to visit a foreign stylist... But not here. This salon is amazing! They take time to get to know what you want, listen and make you beautiful! I fully recommend going by if you are trying to find a place to get pretty!

The Pyramid hotel in Vegas. Large, fun and lots of slots. But the rooms are small and likely will be part of the slanted pyramid experience. Good for a budget trip!

This place is seriously in need of a decor update. The only had 1 type of beer on tap. We decided on the poutine for a quick snack. It came quick and actually the poutine was amazing. Good fresh crispy fries and fresh cheese curds and gravy.
