    ...whether thare are words or any other thing, including art.

    That is the way it goes travelling West.

    Keep a pistol at your side.

    • aok,
      "I will give you a brake." Just make sure the brake is on a Mercedes.

    • An email from a friend...

      1) 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
      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.

      uncovinced about all of this Still ..?! Try this and see how you feel
      afterwards, it made my hair stand on end:

      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

      • Such BS.... go to to see:

        "The Truth:
        This is a hoax, but judging from the emails we're getting, people want something about it to be true.

        It is built upon the previously known fact that "NYC" has corresponding symbols in Wingdings that seem to have destructive meaning too.

        "Q33NY" is not associated in any way with any of the hijacked airliners. It is not one of the flight numbers. It is not the tail (registration) number of any of the airplanes (we have the actual tail numbers below), and was not a designation on radar that day, and is not the identity of the subway tunnel leading to the airport or the World Trade Center. It's not one of the gate numbers. With few exceptions, all civilian aircraft in the U.S. have a tail number that begins with "N." has searched the FAA database that includes all airliners and found no airplane with Q33NY or any that begin with "Q" at all.

        There's been a bit of mischief with this eRumor along the way. The original version is the one we have below. It clearly stated it was referring to the "flight number." It was easily demonstrated, however, that was not a flight number of any of the hijacked jets. Other versions started circulating that said it was the "tail number" or the "registration number." More recently, some versions are making the rounds that claim it was the gate number.

        Here is the information about each flight:

        ...American Airlines flight #11.
        Took off from Boston destined for Los Angeles.
        Struck the World Trade Center.
        The tail # was N334AA.
        ...United Airlines flight #175.
        Took off from Boston destined for Los Angeles.
        Struck the World Trade Center.
        The tail # was N612UA.
        ...American Airlines flight #77.
        Took off from Dulles near Washington D.C. destined for Los Angeles.
        Struck the Pentagon.
        The aircraft tail # was N644AA.
        ...United Airlines flight #93.
        Took off from Newark destined for San Francisco.
        Crashed in Pennsylvania was flight #93.
        The tail # was N591UA.

        The "Wingdings" font in Microsoft Word is one that is a collection of symbols rather than letters. It is true that if you use "Q33NY" in Windings, you'll get the sequence of symbols suggested but it's irrelevant."

        End quote.

        Why don't you spend you time trying to get the $1,000 that Bill Gates is giving everyone for sending him an email requesting the latest version of Windows be sent to them as a beta test site...


      • web,
        All of that is nothing more than Mickey Mouse bullshit. How could one really be impressed by it?

      • There is no doubt that we are living among their symbols and that the CIA and FBI are attempting to decipher their cryptical messages. The religious symbolism is enormously important to them. I did not go through your you religious texts, but I believe you.
