Ok, I'm going to just write one reply to all those that have replied so far, then I must be off to bed as I have to be up again at 6:30 am. I will
reply more tomorrow during the day:
@faryjay: haha! The guy did not place the bet in the end as we could not have offered him the same price as one of my competitors. My trading team did
also not want to offer him a price on a specific date and location. Also as I do not directly own the betting shop, the profits would not be coming
directly to me anyway! Cheers
@smokeyhaze: first of all, thanks for your concern. As mentioned, I take everything with a pinch of salt and do not believe everything I read in the
MSM or on ATS. I always look at things from all sorts of different angles and try to get to the facts. A few examples for you; I have researched 9/11
for about 6 years and after all that time, I still cannot believe either side as there's evidence to suggest either story could be plausible. Another
example is that I absolutely do not believe in god and I am a firm believer of the big bang, the standard model and evolution. However, as we cannot
completely prove the above mentioned as of yet and we cannot completely deny the existence of a higher being, I am open to the idea that a supreme
being may exist in some form or another.
I understand there are huge holes in project blue beam and in fact it's one of the more radical theories out there. I think we need to look at if the
tehchnology may be available to TPTB and would it be sufficient to fool the masses? This is something I cannot answer.
The odds on a specific date and time would be anything but slim. The odds that most big firms were/are offering on aliens being discovered anytime in
2012 is 50/1. This means for every pound that you place in this bet, you will get £51 returned to you (£50 profit). Someone told me this is, in most
cases half of what they were offering the for last year. You may find that interesting, although I cannot confirm if this is true or not. £300, would
return £15,300. Do this to 20 shops around London and you would be looking at £306,000. That's quite a chunk of change. To then be able to guess the
specific date and location, you're probably looking at odds closer to 5000/1 or higher. £5000 x £300= £1,500,000. Do that to 20 shops, your looking
I did not get the mans name and I do not remember exactly when he came to my shop. It was around 3 months ago. He was casually dressed (but looked
smart) and did not act suspiciously at all. Cool as a cucumber in fact and asked me for the bet like it was an every day event.
To answer your last question. I can honestly say that I do not believe he is connected or involved in any secret government agency or believe that he
is correct. However, there is no way to deny it as of yet, so until August 11th, my interest will continue to be sparked.
@violet: that's interesting about the meteor shower on the same day. I had no idea. To be honest, if they were to achieve this, they would need to do
it during the day when London and the stadiums are packed with Olympic tourists. That would be my opinion anyway.
@ranong: haha! No I didn't! If I get a solid horse tip I always place a bet. An Alien tip is far from solid and I do not fancy wasting my money on
something that I personally believe will probably not happen! :p
@jplaysguitar: yup, that's true! The one thing that will always stick with me that is the sentence in the report made by top us gov officials a year
before 9/11 that said something along the lines of "we need another catosrophic event such as pearl harbour to get the backing of the American people
to go to war". I know it was not exactly those words, but to me thats what it looks like it was supposed to say.
@just chris: again, a possibility, but I do not see the point of him doing it just to spook me. Another possibility is that he is completely insane!
Haha! You can never tell these days. Most of our top bankers are probably coke heads and "functional junkies" and we would never know!
@niceguybob: it is potential information if it comes true! :p but yeah, I know what you mean. I will change the title in the morning. I would have
taken the bet on my own but there would be a nagging in my head that would be saying " omg what if this comes true and end up £50,000 out of pocket!"
That would not be good!
@idonthaveabeard: no worries mate, I often skim pages too and do not get the full information.
@cthulhumythos: that's exactly right. When the big spenders (sometimes other independent bookies) want to hedge out their bet and get rid of a chunk
of liability, they may send people or "runners" out, each with a share of the money that needs to be hedged out. They're told to target different
areas each time and spread the money across as many different shops as possible so they do not raise attention or start getting 'restricted'.
Sometimes they even act like its their first bet.
