This dream is in First person

Neighborhood watch is in effect.

I look down a very well known town street to me. There is a golf club behind a line of bushes to my right. Downtown is to my left behind a similar looking line of bushes. A mist seems to linger around the lamps on the sidewalk.

I have a feeling of adventure and excitement. I know there is something I must do. I must patrol this road. No hooligans allowed around here, not with me around.

As I was patrolling I hear some laughing and I see a group of people having a party. There is a person on a picnic table and some others standing around a BBQ grill. The flames were so high on the grill, that the light makes weird shadows on the ground and the house.

The people seem to notice me and waved me over. I smiled and shook my head no.

Just as I did that a blue convertible ( I am not sure of the make or model ) drives up and it is Chuck Liddel in the car.

I told him that I sure was glad he showed up . I could use some extra muscle.

He said He wish he could help more , but there was more at play than just humans. He jumped out of the convertible without using the door and motioned me to follow him.

We ran through some bushes and ended up at a house that had white vinyl siding on the front and all glass on the back ( walls and all ) .

He said he was given a special weapon and couldn't figure out how to use it.  We went inside the house and on the side wall was a very weird looking object .

He took it off the wall and handed it to me and asked me to try to figure out how to work it. He was very urgent in his tone and said " they " were coming.

I looked the thing over. It was a very old looking piece of gray wood with kind of a stock look to one side ( kinda like a riffle stock ). A hilt of a French sword was mounted on the wood where the stock began. Some type of rope and cable was intertwined around what would be a barrel of the thing. A very bright gold cap was on the end.

I looked out the glass side of the house and there was a sunrise beginning and there was lots of clouds. I heard some yelling from the front of the house so I opened the front door and I saw the party goers from earlier coming out of the bushes and slowly walking towards the house. Their heads seems tilted forward as if they were really pissed offed .

Something to ponder on

Ok .....lets make up a totally FICTIONAL scenario .
Lets say ...that you and your spouse has  ummm.... three children.  You do not like what your local school and local environment can teach your children.

SO .. you and your spouse decide to raise your three children away from ALL technology , All people....and teach them that cockroaches are the superior beings on earth. You should bow and pray to the cockroach.. the true GOD.

Is this wrong ?  Should WE as all knowing , all moral , Americans, study and raid this family. Take the children and teach them our religion, OUR morals.

This is the REAL question.

Where do we draw the line?

Who are YOU , to tell someone how to raise there children ?
Should WE, as Americans, intervene with people who are raising their children the way they want?
If a religion , that thinks that whipping a child three times a day is the correct way to raise a child,  ....should we intervene?  It's not our way ... who is to say we are right ?
Maybe being to easy on children is the wrong way . Maybe XBOX and MTV is the true evil .
Who is to say...    .... ....... .......... .....

Ponder on it ........

Who gives you the right to judge someone else ?

Jack Horkheimer, The Star Hustler 1938 - 2010

Sky and Telescope Story

On the weekends I was allowed stay up as late as I wanted.

My friends and I would watch professional wrestling, which ran late into the night. As soon as the wrestling was over we would turn the knob to the local PBS channel. Some funny sounding music would start to play and a guys voice said:

Some people hustle pool,
Some people hustle cars,
But have you ever heard about
The man who hustles stars?

 It was the "The Star Hustler ".  I remember the enthusiasm he had during the show. He showed so much excitement. He was able to bring you into his world , even though for just a short time, and make star gazing interesting and fun.

My parents would watch it with us sometimes and afterwards would take us outside look for stuff that was on the show.

He shared his knowledge and passion with millions . I am grateful for such a gift.

As the "The Star Hustler " always says :

Keep Looking Up

The EvilHick's UFO Story

This is a true story. I ain't shittin ya.

As any other Hick would tell you ..........

I have seen a UFO'S, Ghost's and other creepy ass things.

But today I shall concentrate on my UFO story.

I was riding home with Mrs. EvilHick one night.

The skies were clear and my windows of my 1991 Jetta diesel was rolled all the way down.

I new the farmers were busy in the fields earlier, because the smell of freshly spread chicken manure was heavy in the air that night.

Now see, I know my way around pretty good and knew that I was heading due east , you know , where the steel mill is.

I was glancing up in the sky as I usually do.

Some times I see Venus.

Most of the time I like looking for Jupiter (Man that is one big ball of snot ' huh ' ) .

But usually, I get a good look at a " Shooting Star " or two.

I know .. I know ...

They ain't really falling stars.

Their just some left over junk from the protoplanetary disk during the formation of our
solar system, somewhere around 4 . something billion years ago .

But between you and me ... I still make a wish every time I see one .

I didn't see no shoot-in star that night. No Sir.

I saw a honest to Gawd UFO.

It was over the top of the steel mill, big and glowing.

Some fancier folks would say pulsated .

Man Oh Man .

I slowed my Jetta down to a slow roll.

This dang UFO was doing things I ain't never seen .

It was getting bigger and getting smaller . It changed colors from, a orange to gray .

It would move to the left then ............zoooom........ to the right .

Heres the really strange thing was completely silent !

No Hum.

No Buz.

No Nuttin.

Something that big that came through the:

Milky Way Galaxy

to this solar system

to this planet

to the Steel Mill in my home town.... and it has no sound !

I was simply stumped.

No wonder you don't know when UFO's are around. They got some serious exhaust systems on those things !

Mrs. Evilhick was yellin at me " Watch out dummy ! Keep your eyes on the road not on the UFO , your rollin off the road ! "

I stopped my Jetta. and just watched this magnificent , super intelligent, alien technology , show'in me what it could do.

It was truly awe inspiring .

I was telling myself " I have seen a UFO with my own eyes. They are really real !".

Then something happened that I did no expect at all .

It was weirder than weird.

The UFO turned into a crescent shape. This was really cool look-in . UFO's are crescent spaceships!

Then I had pangs of pain in the ole EvilHicks head as brain wires snaped together (which can be painful at times ) .

The light of the almost full MOON was spilling over the long puffy cloud that was moving in front of it .

Ole my Gawd. I laughed out loud at myself. I was watching the Moon behind a invisible cloud the whole time. Ain't that a bitch.

There was only one cloud in the sky that night and just at the right time when I was looking up. It happen to be in front of the moon.

The cloud was perfectly invisible to me from MY perspective.

It made the almost full moon look like something, that I have never seen before and it was unidentifiable to me.

Well...till the freakin cloud moved out of the way

Always remember that what you see isn't always what you think it is . Pareidolia can be very convincing.

Be skeptical. ..........Of everything.

Even of your own senses .

Take care !

Space X Falcon 9 Success !

Falcon launch is a success. After one abort , that I think shows the reliability of the s rocket , it launched and all stages separated beautifully .

Awesome job Space X. You Rockoxr .

Welcome to the history books ( again ) !

Jupiter Impact on June 3 2010

Before I type anything else.

Hats off too Anthony Wesley and Chris Go.

You guys are AWESOME.

A large fireball was imaged on Jupiter by
two amateur astronomers Anthony Wesley and Chris Go.

Click here to see the offical site this came from.

Click here to see a video of the impact on youtube

When you put things in perspective... Damn..... that was one big fireball.

WOW this is a busy day in Astronomy

Today is the inaugural launch the Space X Rocket " Falcon 9 "

Click here for the live stream.

Click here for Space X website

This launch , in my eyes, is super important to commercial space . Space X has gone from launching big rockets with the aid of desktop computers and hot pockets to grabbing the imagination of big investors.

The world has shifted their gaze at Space X with the Falcon 9 . With a successful launch . Space X will reveal the path for other investors and show them that commercial space is here and here to stay .

Mean dogs like to eat HUMANS !

Please take a couple of minutes and read this news article.

Child Attacked by Pit Bull in Easton

This is my opinion. I am a life long , multiple dog owner. I am not defending the owner nor the dog in this particular story.

Dog attacks are usually sensationalized by the news media outlets . The demonized breeds are Pitt Bull's , Doberman's, Sheppard's and Rottweiler's . The dog breed that I have owned and that has bitten,attacked, in blood lust rage are Chihuahuas .
I have never seen a major news media outlet report the violent attacks of this breed. They are very dangerous and only the most experienced owners should own them.

In every case that I have come across ( which is more than I can count on my fingers and toes ) . When a child is bitten by an dog. It is usually a warning snip .

Dog's have no way of saying " no" or " Stop that !Get away! " like humans can. They are animals and have to be respected as such.
All the cases I have seen with children involved, is when the child is either teasing, begins to play with the dog and gets to rough or to mean with them. Thats when the dog reacts by sniping them. This is usually in the face or the hands. Dogs teeth are designed to puncture and tear not cut. This is why a snip can snag the skin and look worse that what it is.

Unfortunately the bigger the dog the bigger the snip is and can be quite scary. Most of the time the child or person will over-react and in this sue happpy world the owner will get his day in court. Ultimately, the dog usually gets it the worse of it , because it was doing the only things it knows how to be , " an animal " .

Who is this EvilHick Character ? Part 1

Well... as a young strapping young man. I was really into the Martial Arts , Fantasy and Sci-FI ( more into Martial Arts and Fantasy) . I was one of those kids who always had dragon dice on him and a shuriken or two . I even had a couple of pieces of home made plate armor ,made from the tin off of a chicken house roof.

Now my friends and I would always be outside ( cause back then you were told to " go outside and PLAY " ) . Man ole man.... we would make dungeons of acid pits out of nothing but a couple of broken bricks , split 2x4 's and our imagination's . We would spend the day robing the evil dragon of his treasure and getting the young maiden from his deadly clutches. Gawd...Where has those days gone.

Something happened. We grew up a little .

The Evilhick was in this preteen to teens when having battles in inter-tubes in a old ditch was boring and making bombs from gunpowder and watermelons was really cool . New Age was the thing back then . I was the master of Aura's and focusing my Ch'i (Qi).

Thats right. You heard it here first. The Evilhick was a Chi Master. I was about eleven or twelve back then . I was one cool cat ... Sho -Nuff !

I had a heart to heart talk with my best friend . Besides my closest friend ever ( Mrs Evilhick ), he is still my closest friend to this day (even if he doesn't think so ).

I asked him . " You don't really believe in all this stuff do you ? "

I asked him this because even at that of young age, I was skeptical . Meaning....If you say something is true. ... No problem . Show me the evidence and I will back it up . I have always been this way. I don't know why. I just am who I am ( gagagaga...wheres me spinach ) .

To get back to the story ......

I asked my best friend....... " You don't really believe in all this stuff do you ? "

He replied " Why would I spend all this time in something that wasn't true? "

I always considered this person to be a very intelligent person. That was the day I learned that intelligence and beliefs are two very different cats. That was the day I turned into a true magician .
What is a true magician you ask ?

A true magician is a person whom can walk through life and live as other people . The problem with true magicians is that sometimes they can lose themselves in there own illusions . Kinda like a method actor.

Damn....sorry I got side tracked again .... back to the story ..........:

I started to study magic......Well I started to study the art of illusions. I do love the art of illusions. Even to this day I will pull a illusion or two in a day and fool a person. They never know it happens. That's what makes it so good so special .

It's not a ego thing ( at least I don't think it is ) . It's just a reassurance .

People walk around in their environment , thinking that what they see, feel, touch, smell and hear is absolutely the truth......its not It can manipulated on purpose or by randomness and can be so misleading.

I'll put it in a magicians terms...... " Hey man ...master the Scotch and Soda and you'll get laid more than once ! "

to be continued..........................................

Yes I am a Hick

Yes I am a Hick . I am happily married to ... Mrs. Evilhick.
She said it was OK to give a little bit of our history about us so it goes:

We used to live in a trailer until one night one of our electrical outlets burst into flames, next to our mattress ( we didn't have a bed back then ) .
The trailer didn't burn down but it scared us into building a new home.
This is the old trailer. We converted it to a chicken house.

So we had two trailers built into one house ( thats called a double wide ) . Now we have a brand spanking new home and we even have a bed ( it is old and being held up by cinder blocks ).

We have 4 dogs 5 cats and 17 chickens. We did have twenty chickens, but one of our dogs pop the panel out of the back door and killed 3 of of our chickens .

Well as any true Hick would say .... I am a little to drunk to continue my story . until net post ....Jackie Chan .. Jet Li Rulez .
