Breakfast Links: Three Series of Related Events

In the past critics of this blog have said that my Breakfast Links are only of moderate importance and they longed for me to tackle things of global significance. Well, today, my 3 loyal readers, it all changes – I will learn you of conspiracy, hope for the future and.. not so much hope…

Let’s start with this. Greenspan goes and says that the US is headed for a recession towards the end of the year or maybe 2008. Then China’s markets take a dump. Then the US Markets go to the toilet, which is bad enough, but then we find out that that big 178 point drop in the DOW that took all of 30 seconds? Yeah, that was a computer problem. That would have been fine and relatively unnoteworthy, computer problems happen – except for the fact that yours truly reads this article about Chinese remote controlled pigeons. I’ve put two and two together and am breaking this story wide open – the Chinese used the pigeons to attack the Dow Jones computer as payback for Greenspan screwing up their markets. That’s right, you heard it here first. At least there’s Free Money in LA.

Next, we learn of the announcement that the new Star Trek movie is official. It’ll be directed by JJ Abrams, so I guess I’ll be excited for it, although really he’s riding on the first season of Lost’s coattails in my book (although I’m interested to know that he wrote an episode of Avatar the Last Airbender, that show’s good, too). Ok, so what? So what? Well, that’d be only mildly interesting if we didn’t also see that someone invented a real tricorder! Science fiction, you say? I say science fact! AAaand, George Takei weighs in on important subjects. Ok, that one’s not really related.

And let me end with a real world ending one. It started, innocuously enough with my plush and vinyl Cthulhu posting. Then, yesterday I ran across an article about Cthulhu worshippers erecting statues to their dread god in Puerto Vallarta, in plain sight no less! Their disturbing influence spreading to all the innocent tourists. I read a little bit about how those antarctic ice shelves that broke off are revealing new species. Foolishly I didn’t put anything together until I finally came across this image of an “antarctic octopus“. Can there be any doubt that the dreaming god is awakening and emboldening his minions and invading our subconciousness? I have no doubt. I fear for when the eyes open on that “octopus”…
