I never thought I would contribute to a post like this, or even create one for that matter, but perhaps this deserves some attention from the ATS
Background: A 3 year old YouTube account named "Pronunciation Book" has existed to teach the pronunciation of english words, phrases, and conditions
without raising much suspicion. The account, which has 26,000 subscribers, raised red flags in the highly speculative community lately after ceasing
all pronunciation videos and beginning a countdown from 77; One video every day, one number lower, supplemented with messages such as "I am awake
now", "Tensions between the districts have risen", "There is a storm coming in the Market"—each video ending with "Something is going to happen
in x days"
Now, at first glance the troll-meter is going off big time, initial thoughts being either viral marketing or someone just taking us for a ride. But
this has captured the interest of many communities on sites like 4Chan as well as Reddit due to what I will share next.
Those looking into these videos have noticed certain oddities that span from one video to the next that are
. Sentences used as examples could possibly be coded messages between two
or more parties; perhaps covert communications.
These messages begin surfacing in the videos after a couple years of posting the words, including videos such as "how to give orders" and messages
like "'Seize the mortgages immediately" 'I don't care what chief said, you're going to complete this assignment'"
A contributor to Reddit speculates in this comment:
'Twin bombings tore through the Syrian capital of Damascus Thursday, in the deadliest attacks since the uprising began last year -- killing at least
55 people and wounding more than 370, according to state media. There were claims and counterclaims about the blame for the attacks. Jeffrey Brown
On May 10th 2012 a comment on 'how to give orders'

I'm very sorry you have to see that, Chief. You can't understand what it's like to be stuck here. Something terrible happened on May 10th. Please help
me escape from this place.
.... to me it indicates a covert communications channel to or from Syria. Orders are relayed in substitution code, and comments are used to reply.
My interest rose slightly, and then shot up at the reveal of this: www.goodreads.com...
This book, 77 Days in September, highlights the aftermath of a Nuclear EMP device detonated over the United States. Published in May of 2011... so it
wouldn't make sense to advertise for the book now.
The countdown will end on September 24th (or 25th depending on TZ), 2013.
Let's hear what you guys think...Perhaps there is more out there. **Also** Each countdown video is around :24 seconds long, each number pronunciation
followed by at least :10 of silence...with the faintest of clicking in the background. Could be something to that. Even if this is nothing, it is at
least entertainment for the next 70 days - we cant lose focus on the important issues but there could be something to this.
