Batten down your top collection!
« on: April 18, 2019, 12:00:16 PM »

Warning!

In the wake of the release of the Special Counsel's report on Russian interference in the 2016 US presidential election, the National Weather Service (NWS) is predicting a Category 11 spinstorm expected to engulf the entire nation for months.

The NWS warns that there will be so much spin in the air that small spinnable objects are likely to stand up and spin on their own with erratic travel in several directions at once. As the waves of high-intensity spin radiate outward from Washington, DC at the speed of cable news, unsecured spintoys will come off their display stands and shelves at high speeds, posing significant risks to nearby objects, pets, and people in addition to the spintoys themselves.

Spin will be drawn toward particularly susceptible subjects, including top fanciers, cable news junkies, and dogs fond of chasing their tails. Avoid such concentrations when taking shelter.

As the Reptilians evolved telepathy back on their home planet,  spin became pointless. But many members of the small colony now marooned here on Earth get a kick out watching us do it. Kinda like watching a quaint old sitcom.

Oddly enough, I went to the church for our Good Friday service and when I came back one of the trees in our front yard was down.  I did not even realize there was that much wind during that hour.  I cut a bunch late into the night so cars and walkers could get by but the main trunk of the tree is still covering the sidewalk.  So, yes, there has been a lot of spin whipping around our area.
