What's in a Number?


Hey ladies and gents.
This pic is amazing, I like it very much. Outside of what it infers, with its 'David vs. Goliath' overtones, I think the composition is striking and eerie. Now, on to the next topic.

...I'm too lazy to truly post, so I'll just post up an inane but interesting tidbit that keeps circulating. Now, I cannot verify the accuracy or truth of any of this, as i cannot actually add, but it's a diversion all the same.
Oh, before anyone starts cursing me, arranging a fatwa, or questioning my alliegances, let me first stipulate:

I don't particularly give a damn about any of this, honestly.

New York City has 11 letters
2) Afghanistan has 11 letters.
3) Ramsin Yuseb (The terrorist who threatened to destroy the Twin Towers in 1993) has 11 letters.
4) George W Bush has 11 letters.
This could be a mere coincidence, but this gets more interesting:
1) New York is the 11th state.
2) The first plane crashing against the Twin Towers was flight number 11.
3) Flight 11 was carrying 92 passengers. 9 + 2 = 11
4) Flight 77 which also hit Twin Towers, was carrying 65 passengers. 6+5 = 11
5) The tragedy was on September 11, or 9/11 as it is now known. 9 + 1+ 1 = 11
6) The date is equal to the US emergency services telephone number 911. 9 + 1 + 1 = 11.
Sheer coincidence..?! Read on and make up your own mind: 1) The total number of victims inside all the hi-jacked planes was 254. 2 + 5 + 4 = 11.
2) September 11 is day number 254 of the calendar year. Again 2 + 5 + 4 = 11.
3) The Madrid bombing took place on 3/11/2004. 3 + 1 + 1 + 2 + 4 = 11.
4) The tragedy of Madrid happened 911 days after the Twin Towers incident. Now this is where things get totally eerie: The most recognised symbol for the US, after the Stars & Stripes, is the Eagle. The following verse is taken from the Quran, the Islamic holy book: "For it is written that a son of Arabia would awaken a fearsome Eagle. The wrath of the Eagle would be felt throughout the lands of Allah and lo, while some of the people trembled in despair still more rejoiced: for the wrath of the Eagle cleansed the lands of Allah and there was peace."
That verse is number 9.11 of the Quran. Still unconvinced about all of this..?! Try this and see how you feel >afterwards, it made my hair stand on end: SERIOUSLY DO THIS-- Open Microsoft Word and do the following:
1. Type in capitals Q33 NY. This is the flight number of the first plane to hit one of the Twin Towers.
2. Highlight the Q33 NY.
3. Change the font size to 48.
4. Change the actual font to the WINGDINGS

What do you think now?!!"

I felt chills when I changed it, too. My son and I flew American out of JFK on a morning just before 9/11. The airport was under construction and we had to walk outside between terminals. At the time, I was angry because we almost missed our flight, but after 9/11 I felt blessed because we were alive... I thought we were lucky, but this is eery... makes you wonder how much is predestined.

I actually saw that whole thing on a myspace post yesterday. There were a bunch more things on there that were fairly interesting. I'll be finding that bulletin and posting it here in a few minutes.

I would like to take a moment to point out how these interweb artists molest and masticate the work of others.

This picture is obviously a photoshop (or gimp) hack.

This hack is comprised of serious works made by others.

Like pretending to make music by "sampling" these people are cons without creativity.

Please visit my blog to see more examples of this fraud.
