090909

9-9-2009 1-09-19 PMIt’s 9th September 2009. 090909. What was going to happen today? I forget, but I’m sure there was some major conspiracy or ending of the world involved – again!

I haven’t checked with the local Numerology Society, but I’m sure there is great significance in today’s date.

090909

I recall the 9th September 1999. Exactly 10 years ago today. It was labeled 9/9/99 and was a day when computer were going to crash and cause mayhem around the world. Nothing noticeable happened – except people crashing their own computers because they didn’t know what they were doing. Of course, we didn’t learn from this experience, so we were still sucked in to play the “Millennium Bug Game“, when the world was going to crash, power stations would stop, planes would fall out of the sky and “The Almighty” would leave for a permanent vacation and not return.

The world was once again doomed! But New Years Eve came and went. Nothing changed and life went on as normal. Except, Microsoft, Dell, Apple & Co sold a lot of computers…

1984

George OrwellI had a friend (a flatmate) in Adelaide. He was the youngest manager of a popular fast food chain in Australia. In 1983, he and his best friend decided that George Orwell was correct and 1984 was their last year worth living in a free society. So he quit his career and set off on a trip around Australia. “Trip being the keyword here, they induced a lot of “Trips” through many substances. After all, life was never going to be the same.

He told me years after, that his biggest wakeup call was January 1st 1985. He was wrong. Bummer! Life goes on. Another conspiracy theory bites the dust. Hm, actually George Orwell‘s content suits 2009 quite well, now that I think about it. Maybe 1984 was just quarter of a century delayed.  😉

2012

Mayan CivilisationThe next one to look out for, I suppose, is 2012. The end of the 5000 year Mayan Calendar. Society as we know it is ending – again! Another Apocalypse. Great! Just when the London Olympics is on… talk about bad planning. You would have thought the Mayan’s would have allowed us to watch the Olympics in London first. If they could predict the World’s End 5000 years in advance, surely they would’ve known the London Olympics was on at that time.

Not Happy Jan! 😉

Anyways, we get to live through another conspiracy theory. Clans of people get to gather for doomsday on top of a hill somewhere and meanwhile, I’ll be watching another never ending episode of Home And Away as if nothing happened. And Usain Bolt can get back to back Gold Medals at the Olympics.

See you back here sometime after 090909.

  1. I’m all for the Mayan event of 2012 happening when the earth stands still. The earth has been slowing its rotation for years now and there is plenty of evidence to suggest that we will begin to spin the other way, after a few days of darkness (or light, depending on where you are when the earth stops spinning).

    Of course, the brotherhood agenda will use this event to start the biggest fear campaign the world has seen since the introduction of modern religion. Prepare for their stranglehold on us for the new world order. Be strong and see through their manipulation of our minds and do not conform to the explanations they give us about this natural event.

    I’m out of here before the men in white coats catch me 😉

      As an affiliate marketer, I’d like to ask if you’d donate a 10% commission on any interplanetary travel tickets you sell 😉 . Is there a 30 day moneyback guarantee if the flight fails (like, drops back through the ozone and burns up)?
      I would bring my kids, but their pocket money doesn’t quite sum up to $7.5M (yet) 😀

  4. Great article. Makes you think were these dates supposed to get people to do something?? Reminds me of the Y2K thingy 10 years ago when all the computers and electronics were going to melt down if no one fixed dates. The Western countries spent billions on solutions and the Eastern countries spent nothing… and guess what?? Nothing happened.

    Something to think about.

  5. “Clint” If the earth does stops as you said and starts spinning the other way then i think i am pretty sure how the “Brotherhood” will start the “biggest fear campaign”, Here is what i think. In most main stream Religions we all believe that there will be signs (natural disasters, war , famine etc.) that usher in the end of the world, sumthin like a count down, the worse the sign the closer we come to the end. Well in Islam what they believe to be the final and worse sign that will directly lead to Judgment day is the Sun rising from the WEST and setting in the EAST. So if what you said is true about the earth changing its rotational course and we factor in the ISLAM POPULATION of nearly 1.5 Billion believers, i don’t think the “Brotherhood” have to do much because the world will already be in chaos! That’s just my opinion, or it could be the fact that i didn’t have my morning coffee yet.

  6. I think we will get some great movies out of Hollywood (and Bollywood) on this topic. If only Mohammed had got the Christians onboard back in the old days, we would have one less Religion to worry about when the sun rises in the West.

    Man! Does that mean they will move Easter?

  7. @Michael Now, If the brotherhood had not taken out this knowledge away from us it would have been common knowledge this whole time about the reversing of the earth, so it would have just been a few days to relax with a nice Gin and Tonic, and wait to see the sun rise from the other horizon.. Of course, if we were really bothered by it all the populace could retreat into the hollow centre of the earth where there is an internal sun ;=)

    Have to go, there is a big black van with a satellite dish on top, out the front of my house…

    You guys are starting to worry me the only date Im concerned about is the one where I start renting shares and other things I have in mind.Have a long and fruitful life

  9. ok if THE END of the world is really coming why dont you announce it to the world then so everybody would know it is coming….By the way if it is really true will the US Government will build a giant ship that will hold 6 billion people????PLS REPLY ASAP

  10. Nothing happened on Sept 9.. but i’m afraid of sept 11th… Also i’m nt sure if world will exist after dec 21 2012 🙂 Angeline @ marcus evans scam

  11. Try flying to the states on September 11 – or getting something shipped international. Yes, but nothing spectacular happened here as far as I was aware of on Sept 9th – at least not in this humbe little household.

  12. Sean said “…I recall the 9th September 1999. Exactly 10 years ago today. It was labeled 9/9/99 and was a day when computer were going to crash and cause mayhem around the world.”

    Not quite right Sean. I reckon you are thinking of the millenium bug which was supposed to crash every system when 31/12/99 (31 December 1999) ticked over to 01/01/2000.

    The IT consultants made billions and when the champagne wore off on new years day planes still flew and the banks still had money. Either the IT guys did an amazing job or they managed to pull off the most audacious confidence trick in modern history.

    • But Sean is right as all the dramas and planning and re-programming was already going on full speed. And what happened? Nothing. What happened Jan 2010? Heaps of Eftpos machines all of a sudden got a bug and didn’t want to work anymore. That’s what I call time delay 😉

  13. If you think about it “In most main stream Religions we all believe that there will be signs (natural disasters, war , famine etc.) that usher in the end of the world” where there is a Natural Disaster it is the end of the world for so many, the same can be said for Wars and Famine so in a way the prophecy is correct for those poor individuals caught up in the particular disaster.

  14. Hi Sean

    Is Home & Away your favourite show? You talk about it a lot… Are Alf and Sally still on there?

    I’m looking forward to 2012. It’s going to be a great year. By the way, the London Olympics are planned for July/Aug 2012. The end of the Mayan Calendar is on 21 Dec ’12. So the Mayans did allow for us to watch the Olympics after all 🙂
    .-= Lina Nguyen´s last blog ..How to make comments online and build your online persona =-.

    • The Mayan Calendar supposedly predicted the end of the world (by white mans interpretation) but they didn’t predict the end of their own civilisation… I don’t think we have too much to worry about. They just ran out of ink (hammer and chisel) at December 12, 2012. 😉

  15. The date looks spooky – 090909!!! But then again nothing happened on that day. There is a boy at our oldest boys highschool that goes around letting everyone know when the world is going to end. Its so funny that I try not to laugh when our boys come home and tells me all about. The boy has even started handing out flyers on the date (s) and what is going to happen when “The World Ends” – I suppose I should not laugh but I can’t help but see the funny side of the situation. How can anyone tell when the world is going to end? There has been so many times/dates/years that people have come forward when will they realise that they sound silly? 🙂

    Hi Sean,

    All I can say is if it’s true about 2012, I have an awful lot of living to do between now and then. I seem to remember someone made a movie about this. I might have to check it out because I might have to build an ark or something.:)

  17. Settle down people. Nothing will happen.

    We have a weirdo that predicts the end of the world every Friday night.
    Hang on. There’s heaps of people stagger around late on a Friday night. Might be the start of it. Could we be getting eased into it so it’s not too much of a shock….

    Now where’s that number for the tickets to Mars…

  18. G’day Sean,
    For a start, I think numerology is a crock of BS, so I won’t be dropping by the society for an interpretation. Conspiracy theories about Y2K and similar are most likely spread by companies who want to sell us a new EVERYTHING ! Crikey ! What a bloody cynic I am !
    As always, very thought provoking blog.
    Cheers
