These ‘soccers’ are fakers!

Wait, I have written about this before here.
Surprisingly, it’s the same Real Madrid.

Anyways..
I have, for a long time, held the opinion that soccer matches are scripted. It’s always evident in the final bouts. I’m no soccer fan, I hardly follow the game, but whenever I do watch a particular match I realize that not only the general outcome but certain happenings like who gets a yellow, red, are predictable. Not always the correcr final scores cos if I could do that I would be winning at any sport betting game.

I was watching BBC the other day when the news broke that a star player limped out of the training pitch. I was like, “Yea right, this is a good way to get the people riled up indeed.” He got better of course. For the people to be riled up some more. I could be wrong but it always looks like a part in a movie or soap.
And that’s the set.

The Set

So when the room was packed full of friends and my chat buddies were either quiet or commenting on the game, I had to join in watching the game last night. I noticed how the guys around me complained about the slow pace of the game. I didn’t see how it was slow though. It looked pretty fast to me. I noticed how the game ended in a penalty (for maximum intrigue I’m guessing). How there were so many yellow cards (about eight of them),..
Eight! Was it Rugby!!?
.. was also a pointer to how action packed it was.

During the penalty the players all chose a particular convenient spot, the same spot, at the back of the net while the goal keeper always went the other way. I saw that. And also how the guy just before the star player (who was initially reported to be with injury) was in a bit of a hurry to shoot and, of course, missed.

That guy looked too old though. He looked like a coach.

Anyway, that was also the only time the keeper went in the same direction with the ball. So if it hadn’t hit the bar, the keeper would’ve caught it.

Interesting..

Then came the star player with his trademark stance. A ghen ghen moment. And wham! it came, a goal.

No one expected less. But no one thought “hey, wait a minute”.

Oh yeah, some really sexy muscle flexing for the ladies too.

Some script.

There was the Jason Statham type action.

The romance.

It was a family show too. There were toddlers all over the place.

Twenty Three

Today is the 23rd day in January. The number 23 is significant. It is one of the most commonly cited prime numbers. Twenty three is the lowest prime that consists of consecutive digits. Primes have been described as the building blocks of the world of numbers.

The number has been the subject of not one but two films: the 1998 German movie, 23, and The Number 23, starring my favourite actor, Jim Carrey.
That’s not the weird part. There seem to be several happenings associated with the number. Mostly bad.

Did you know that every person has 46 chromosomes, 23 from each parent?

That the tilt of the Earth’s axis is 23 degrees?

The date Titanic sank – 4/15/1912: 4+1+5+1+9+1+2=23

Two divided by three makes 0.666 recurring (allegedly – actually it makes 0.6666666667).

The Hiroshima bomb was dropped at 8.15am – 8+15= 23

Charles Darwin’s Origin of Species was published in 1859 – 1+8+5+9 = 23.

Weird huh?
The Ancient Chinese believed that numbers conveyed sexuality – evens for feminine and odds for masculine. They considered prime numbers to be the most masculine, conferring special status on 23 which is made up of two consecutive prime numbers and the only even prime number – two.

Wait, there’s even more:
The terrorist attacks on the U.S on 11 September 2001 have been held up as one of the most portentous examples of the disturbing power of 23. The figures in the date (9+11+2+0+0+1) add up to 23.

In the disaster movie, Airport, the bomber has seat 23.

The number of crosses on Calvary at the end of the Monty Python film, The Life of Brian, is 23.

In Die Hard With A Vengeance, a train derails in subway station 23.

The lead characters in the Coen brothers’ film The Big Lebowski always used Lane 23 at the bowling alley.

In the television series Lost, one of the combination of six numbers that haunt the characters and they have to input to a computer to avoid an unknown fate is 23.

The Nobel Prize-winning economist, John Forbes Nash, who was the subject of the film, A Beautiful Mind, starring Russell Crowe, was obsessed with 23. It featured prominently in his battle with mental illness.

One of the few good things about the number 23 is that my birthday falls in January, on the 23rd day.
I bet that gave you the hibbidyjibbies.

Where are we headed?

So its seems rather obvious that some people want anarchy in the world. It also seems these people are all too ready for the showdown.

They’ve armed thier police, militarized them actually. They’ve — and this is the scary part — provided the final resting place for the thousands that will fall. Remember these?

They’ve been called burial vaults by individuals debunking the claim that these are coffins for soon to fall victims of a man made disaster. But theories abound as to why these are being stored near a major transportation hub, Atlanta, USA. Even more sinister is the establishment of American concentration camps, some of which are currently functional.

Suddenly a big race issue springs up. The terrorists attack in one hand. Even the Idris Elba as James Bond issue is hot enough to drive some folks out onto the streets to riot. You don’t think so? Ok, how about the French government allowing that publishing company go ahead to print as many as five million copies when obviously, extreemists will be very pissed. They couldn’t stop three people from killing seventeen, how will they stop hundreds?

And in Nigeria, the government isn’t even acknowledging the sheer terror in the north east of that country. Deliberately upsetting its citizens. Syria, Yemen, etc. Have already fallen.

However, The Department of Homeland Security has purchased over 1.6 billion rounds of ammunition. Remember that at the height of combat operations in Iraq, the U.S. Army only used 5.5 million bullets a month. So why do they need that many bullets if it is not preparing for some form of mayhem? I’m pretty certain other countries have taken similar steps

Preparation for mayhem that would usher in martial law can be seen in numerous guises: the killing of black young men being one. The very bizzare way in which most governments run as if intentionally pissing their citizens off. Terrorism too, as well as false flag operations. Oh, and the planned the release of Hitler’s Book.

 There’s the FEMA program which is training pastors and other religious representatives to become secret police enforcers who teach their congregations to “obey the government” in preparation for the implementation of martial law.

We might have to brace ourselves. Or I might just be nuts.

Liberia, Ebola and Truth

Liberian ambassador to the UK just told several lies and half-truths about the Liberia government’s response to the Ebola epidemic. That was on BBC. He said the government were making attempts to provide safety nets but that like all nets, there are holes. Attempts my butt! And why do they always blame the civil war? That was 10 years ago! He mentioned that the civil war ruined the nation’s health sector.
And the Defense Minister said “the very existence of the country is at stake”. How interesting, people still seem to be going about their businesses (what’s left of it) and are getting fed up of all the noise and little action. Many already insist the whole situation is becoming annoying. Preventive measures are still being taken though. These is all despite that the government has painted a gloomy picture of the situation in Liberia.
By the way, scores have died from malaria, typhoid, or flu, but all are tagged Ebola victims. Within this past week, a drunk elderly man died in Red light. A lady died in Royal Plus, Mawata, she was raped by several men. In both cases, the Ebola response team zoomed in, sprayed the bodies with chemicals and put them in plastic body bags. Even as residents insisted the cases were falsely tagged.
Now, there are also cases of people dying in their sleep, I have heard of four so far. There have been reports of kidnappings, and rumors that churches in Monrovia are about to be shut down. I sincerely hope its all a rumor. We woke this morning to talk of poisoned table salt and sugar being sold in the market. The deaths that this will cause will definitely be blamed on Ebola.

The people know the truth. But the world, do they?

Another Liberian Civil War?

The tension in Monrovia, Liberia has been further heightened by the discovery of trucks (two of them) loaded with ammunition in the city. They were spotted at the later part of last month. It is believed that these trucks came in from Bomi County, to the West, though others say it came in from a seaport in Picanna, Grand Bass County, to the East. Though there are disparities, there have been eyewitnesses who have been calling radio and television programmes asking the government to explain the situation. And on the streets, pure fear. But just like the well poisoning, there hasn’t been any word yet. Is there something the government doesn’t want its people to know, an impending war maybe?

Footballers Are Actors! i think

I apologise beforehand as i will be offending some of my readers, especially the soccer fans. But i do have to write this post, its what this blog is for remember, my views?

Before i start though i’d like to point out that goalkeepers have been shown a number of times spitting unto their gloves and rubbing same together especially when faced with a penalty or free kick. You all must’ve seen this. So just why do their players then go to these goalkeepers for hugs or pats on the back when they should be avoiding them? Having the keepers spittle on every player on the pitch isn’t a tradition is it?

Anyway, i’ve observed a lot of play-acting in the game of football, especially the club tournaments. Yea, sue me.
Asides the faking of injuries or pain, the dives, asides the raising of hands even after they were infact guilty. Asides the suddenly started and suddenly ended fights, there’re certain mis-kicks and moves that one shouldn’t expect from these players who are supposed to be professionals, not even when they’re tired or frustrated.

I first started to have this observation when i followed the past World Cup tournaments. Not cos i was interested, just cos everyone else was following it. Its a beautiful game though. My bad but this soccer stars look more and more like wrestlers in WWF or is it WCW. When a game is full of drama it is called an interesting match and not a 90 minute clip as i think it is. The game is a big money spinner. So ofcourse there must be people who are observing the fans and market and giving them what they want or in other cases, what they weren’t expecting. Its called intrigue. How will the money be made if the fans aren’t entertained?
i might be wrong though, and i do hope that i am.
I was watching the final between Atletico Madrid and Real Madrid in the just concluded champions League, the second half of it. Every thing i predicted in that livingroom eventually happened. The Real Madrid players were pushing hard to score and since they couldn’t the opponents did some time wasting with every foul, elevating tension and ofcourse, time was extended till finally, Real Madrid scored – and three times more during extra time three times! There was the issue with the coach to add to the drama.
Its really like a well written script. With him, Ronaldo i mean, hugging that man (i learnt is his father) like that after the end of the game. A bit of love in the mix?

It seems more an entertainment than a competition.

Of that 2Face’s ‘Higher’ Video

Some already picture me as a conspiracy buff so i’l wear that cap once again and then go ahead with this.

I just saw the video for ‘Higher’ by 2Face Idibia. Its at first glance, impressive, the animation and all was superb, but then one who’s vast in knowledge of History, Religion, Myth and ofcourse, conspiracy theories will notice certain elements that depict certain symbolisms and blasphemy.
Spaceships are shown salvaging creatures from The Trinet, Three planets and civilizations that’s on the verge of destruction. These planets include Doom, which in several ways looks a lot like Hell fire, Pyramus, looking sorta like Egypt as the pyramids show, and Kayus, whose leader is a woman.

There are volcanic eruptions all over planet Doom with skulls littering the ground surface and the planet is ruled by a man with the inscription on his forehead of the image of horns. The Trinet, led by the king of Doom, decides to invade planet earth sort of how Superman had to leave Krypton for earth cos of the destruction there. Anyway, a wicked-stepmother-looking woman is sent to kill Tuface’s queen with a poisoned apple. Then, the king of Doom slashes Tuface’s throat with a sword as he stares on at his fallen queen. He then holds captive the leaders of Pyramus and Kayus.

What seemed like Tuface’s spirit then attacks the king of Doom and kills him and then it is clear that he’s resurrected, as he ascends to heaven like Jesus or Ra or Buddha, or whoever that guy in a futuristic white spacesuit is.

Kind of an unusual visual interpretation for a song so cool huh? And then at the end, the credit reads directed by Clarence Peters. I’m like Oh, that director is already known for coming up with scary and sinister videos that pass subliminal messages. I might be wrong in all this though, but i doubt that i am. Especially with all the videos flying around and throwing these kind of stuff all up in our faces.
What then was the video trying to pass? It didn’t in any way connect with the song, or did it?
I love Tuface, he looked good even in this video, but this video, hmm, there’s something there o.
