I guess it belongs here.

I was reading this thread, and found a great pic of Titan [Taken September 23, 1995].

i just heard about this.

the world has lost one of its greatest thinkers, but his ideals will live on through us, as long as we are free and we defy those that would infringe upon this freedom.

rest in peace Bob, wherever you wind up.

I was greatly saddened to hear of RAW's passing. I was in the pub and a friend told me... tears started to my eyes.

Hail Eris - he had a good one, anyway.

And I saw an interesting 23 last night on the BBC series, Trust me I'm a Healer... "I've been married to you for 23 years and I don't know you any more..."

You had to be there...

I don't know this guy.

I saw a trailer for the Jim Carrey movie Number 23 so i did some research about 23 and I found 9+11+2+0+0+1=23. I wonder why this hasn't been posted here before. Odd. I'm also 23 years old.

I bought my son some cheap socks and it wasnt till I got home did I notice the 23's all over them. This happened a couple of months ago and I completely forgot this thread.

Somebody earlier mentioned Tarot cards.

23 = Two Three = The Tower (anagram)

having a revelation
suddenly realizing the truth
exposing what was hidden
having a burst of insight
seeing through illusions
getting the answer
seeing everything in a flash

Tarot = At Tor.

Tor has many answers.

If only we could UnderStand.

Caught one last night during the BBC screening of a film whose title I cannot remember right now... but it was from an early book by Thomas Harris about a guy who wants to kill loads of people at the Superbowl by detonating a bomb from a blimp. Our evil protagonist - an ex-pilot and veteran - has to go for a psychiatric evaluation at 2:30... he comes to the desk of an unpleasant receptionist and is told brusquely to "take a number". His number is in the mid-fifties... but the next number she calls out is, of course, 23.

For fans of the law of fives, I also read an interview with Virginia Madsden in today's Independent in which she talks about the "cupcake effect". One day she decided to concentrate on cupcakes. Suddenly they're everywhere. A new store opens up selling cupcakes, there are articles on CNN, a sudden new gift of cupcakes from her agent... culminating in seeing a guy with a cupcake on his t-shirt with a massive arrow pointing to it...

Found this in amongst the anon posts:

Following the link provides an explanation of sorts.

Bird flu detected near Moscow, strain yet unknown

16.02.2007, 22.23

MOSCOW, February 16 (Itar-Tass) -- All poultry farms in the Moscow region are under strict quarantine, as bird flu virus has been detected at two farmsteads, acting Moscow regional governor Alexei Panteleyev told Itar-Tass.

He said the access to poultry farms will be limited, and local personnel will be under permanent medical surveillance.

All wild birds that may appear within the poultry farms’ range will be shot down, eh said.

In game adverts? Grrr

Google is buying in-game advertising company AdScape Media for $23 million, a source familiar with the deal who asked to remain anonymous said Friday.


Damn you trickster 23!

Ok, no Reliant Robin this time:

Iran vowed on Wednesday to press on with its nuclear fuel program, ignoring a U.N. deadline to freeze uranium enrichment or face broader sanctions.

However, the Islamic republic offered to guarantee it would not try to develop atomic weapons.

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad remained defiant, even as a 60-day grace period -- that Iran had been given December 23 to stop enriching uranium for nuclear fuel -- was expiring.

2+3 does equal 5 and that might very well be the meaning of the universe but combining 5 to 6 is the driving power, Alchemy. Not to mention Joe wed Marilyn Monroe! They were married for 274 days. 2+7+4=13. Thirteen is the 6th prime number. 11 is the 5th. 5+6=11. Now that's golden!

Just the Facts.

6 is the number of man
666 is the number of the beast

2/3 of the angels decided to stick it out in Heaven with God after Lucifer and the other third fell.

The address of the Freemasons lodge in Stafford, England is 23 Jaol Rd. In New York it is on 23rd street.

The Templars had only 23 Grandmasters. Jacques de Molay was the 23rd and last of the Templar Grandmasters.

Level of ONE; The newest front society of the Illuminated, the 23rd level of the ONE is reported to be the last level attainable (achieving departure from Earth).

In Aleister Crowley's Cabalistic Dictionary, he defines the number 23 as the number of "parting, removal, separation, joy, a thread, and life..."
