Its nearing the finale, July 11th 2010.
The end of the thread is also near.
Could everything be left until this very day? The way it is at the moment time is about up, however....
July 11th 2010 we still have
The world cup final between netherlands and spain at soccer city stadium in joberg.
One of the most artistic and awe-inspiring football venues on the African continent, the newly-reconstructed Soccer City Stadium will host the first
and final matches of the 2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa™.
The ground's design is inspired by the iconic African pot known as the calabash, and its aesthetic appeal will be heightened when the stadium is lit
at night. Soccer City is located in Johannesburg's southwest and is only a short distance from one of the country's football-crazy townships,
Soweto. About 40 per cent of Johannesburg's population live in Soweto and this proximity is bound to make the stadium a hub of activity throughout
the 2010 finals.
We have an eclipse scheduled for the 11th July also
and possible sunspot that will be facing earth on the 11th July.
Theres still time for something significant to happen, guess we will just have to wait and see.
Thanks to everyone that have added their piece to this thread, i appreciate it.
I would also like you to focus on the Solar eclipse thats due to occur on this date 11th July,
Hanga Roa, Easter I. will witness a total eclipse and the location is fitting to that of the world cup finalists netherlands.
The name "Easter Island" was given by the island's first recorded European visitor, the Dutch explorer Jacob Roggeveen, who encountered it on
Easter Sunday 1722, while searching for Davis or David's island and named it Paasch-Eyland (18th century Dutch for "Easter Island"). The
island's official Spanish name, Isla de Pascua, also means "Easter Island".
The current Polynesian name of the island, "Rapa Nui" or "Big Rapa", was coined following the slave raids carried out in Rapa Nui in the early
1860s because of Easter Island's geographic resemblance to the island of Rapa in the Bass Islands of the Austral Islands group. However, Thor
Heyerdahl has argued that the naming would have been the opposite, Rapa being the original name of Easter Island, and Rapa Iti was named by its
There are several hypotheses about the "original" Polynesian name for Easter Island, including Te pito o te henua, meaning "The Navel of the land"
or "The ends of the land". Pito means both navel and umbilical cord which was considered to be the link between the world of the living (kainga) and
the spiritworld Po, lying in the depths of the ocean further East. Since Easter Island is the easternmost Polynesian island it's possible the name
refers to it being the "ends" of the world of the living; however after Alphonse Pinart translated it as "the Navel of the World" in his Voyage a
l'Ile de Paques published in 1877, this second meaning has been lost. According to some oral traditions, the island was first named Te pito o te
kainga a Hau Maka, or the "Little piece of land of Hau Maka". Another name, Mata-ki-Te-rangi, means "Eyes looking to the sky."
The history of Easter Island is rich and controversial. Its inhabitants have endured famines, epidemics, civil war, slave raids, colonialism, and near
deforestation; their population has declined precipitously more than once. They have left a cultural legacy that has brought them fame
disproportionate to their population.
