Chemtrails III Delay

“Chemtrails III (Aerial Spraying)” will be up tomorrow. But right now, let’s all take a moment to reflect on the Higgs Boson and all the horrifying disasters that didn’thappen on the road to its discovery. And let’s take a few seconds to mourn Chayya, a 16-year-old girl from Madhya Pradesh who killed herself over fears about the Large Hadron Collider in September 2008.

Chemtrail Week will be briefly interrupted for Canada Day

Here’s another of those “new” hooked cirrus clouds, photographed yesterday.

Chemtrail Week begins soon

Chemtrail Week will begin on Monday. In the meantime, bask in the glorious wisdom, insight, and stellar word-to-punctuation ratio of some anonymous lurker who recently commented on a 2-year-old post that barely mentions chemtrails:

“Hahahahaha!! Whoever this clown is that wrote the article, eat me!! You are either a government agent or a complete fool. Look up in the skies asshole, the barium and aluminum doesn’t dissipate like a regular con trail. What, your nightly news hasn’t addressed the problem so it doesn’t exist???…your eyes are not reliable enough to accept the obvious proof without TV validation???…Do some research before you start spouting off about things you clearly have absolutely no knowledge of. It’s idiots like you that perpetuate the BS to keep other ignorant goofs such as yourself in lala land. Wake up or shut up you moron!”

A Note to Readers

Because several posts in the Prodigal Witch series touched on child abuse issues, I have been receiving many emails and comments informing me that So-and-So in Such-and-Such County is a pedophile and is actively molesting and/or abducting children.

I cannot possibly stress strongly enough that this is not the place to air such complaints. If you are aware of child abuse, human trafficking, or any other form of child exploitation being committed by a certain person or group of persons, report this to the proper authorities immediately.

Comments that contain unsubstantiated allegations against specific persons will be removed.

On Vacation

Hans and I will be on vacation for the next week. The Prodigal Witch series will continue when we return from our wanderings.


Once again, my apologies for the extended absence. There’s been a lot going on lately: Federal elections, family visits, hippie death threats, bin Laden conspiracy theories. You know, the usual.
