bomb at the superbowl?????

http://www.forbiddenknowledgetv.com/...ag-terror.html

Quote:
Nuke to Go Off at the Superbowl Tomorrow?

For whatever its worth, the research of David Taylor suggests that there may be a nuclear bomb detonated during Superbowl XVL and if not tomorrow, at a future mass event, where hundreds of millions of viewers will be watching. He claims that if there is no explosion, it will be because local law enforcement will have taken heed of his warnings.

Taylor's prediction is based on his interpretation of decades of pop culture, which he sees as the primary means of
conditioning the populace, in the tradition of conspiracy theorist, James Shelby Downard, whose works examined perceived occult symbolism, twilight language and synchronicity behind historical events in the 20th century.

Taylor notes that for the past 50 years, we have been repeatedly informed that when a nuclear weapon goes off, Martial Law
will be declared...

Here's to hoping he's wrong!
If it goes off hes right, if it doesn't, hes still right

There will be some I'm sure ... but I think they'll stick to the short game most of the time.

The book was much better than the movie. Though they did blow the Toronto Argonauts to hell with a nuke, it didn't save the remaining 2 hours.

OMG. So his method of prediction is to watch old movies like Black Sunday (1977) and then say "yeah, that's going to happen"? What's next? A prediction that an ocean liner will overturn?

ETA: I went to the root URL. My advice is to not do that with a mouthful of orange soda.

Aaaaaaaaaaargosssssssssss!

Not that most of Canada wouldn't mind seeing Trawna blown to smithereens. Superbowl is only notable for the commercials which we'll see again and again and again over the coming months. If the commercials are the most notable components, we're watching this.......why?

I doubt they'll be a bomb at the Super Bowl, but I will predict this: If during the halftime show Osama Bin Laden himself pulls off his Fergie disguise to reveal an atomic device hidden in his bra, and in full high-definition closeup view of the 500+ million worldwide audience announces in perfect English "Take that, infidels!" and blows up half of Dallas, someone somewhere will still blame the Jews.

I predicted years ago the revenge for the Hiroshima/Nagasaki bombs would be at a large sporting event, like this Super Bowl, whatever that might be, when all the foreign made (no finger pointing) electronic devices are there in sufficient quantity for the miniscule amount of plutonium creverry inserted in each at manufacture will go critical and explode, just due to the proximity of all those miniscule amounts to each other.
With the profliferation of cell-phones today....... Kabloowie!

Which would still be an improvement upon a normal Black Eyed Peas performance.

Dang it...does this mean we're going to have to build ANOTHER stadium? Good thing Cowboy's Stadium is 30 miles away in Arlington...rather than right down the street in Fair Park (home of the Cotton Bowl) where they thought about building it....That would TOTALLY interfere with my Sunday afternoon nap.

Well, that, and I don't really recall any instance, let alone "repeated" instances, of being informed that "Martial law" will be declared "when a nuclear weapon goes off".

Now, Law of the Jungle, that I've seen. But that's not so much "declared" as it is "violently applied".

I think there is a National Emergency Response Plan dealing with a terrorist nuclear detonation that calls for Martial Law to be implemented in order to secure the safety of survivors who will need to be decontaminated and treated at huge makeshift triage centers.

Yes, Fergie (who does have a great voice) bombed trying to replicate W.Axl Rose, as Slash nailed one of his masterpieces. The rest of halftime was dishwater as well.

The thing I remember most about Sum of All Fears was that the Vikings were playing in that Super Bowl and were winning when the bomb went off. SKOL!

The paper this morning displaced the usual man-bites-dog story on the front page with something about those steroid-enhanced mutant fat men playing with themselves yesterday.

Agreed,but Clancy specified a Nuke.
That said, still a pathetic performance when a CTer makes a prediction that has been the subject of several sucessful works of fiction.
And the film of "Black Sunday" was much better then the film of "Sum Of All Fears". The acting was much better,Bruce Dern in particular.

I really love that movie. Especially the end, which was almost anti-climatic, but was just lacking a denoument.


BTW Harris claimed he was inspired by the Munich Olympics hostage Crisis. So, I'm sure someone will blame the JOOOS.

No that was not a particularly horrible half time show. I actually kinda liked it.

If you want to see a horrible one check out the stinkfest the Rolling Stones put on a few years back.

Yeah, well.
Other than being correct on the Stones, you are one sick puppy if you liked that -- or was I the only one who thought the sound guy fell asleep?

I agree with Travis in that it "was not a particularly horrible half time show", I'd just emphasize it as "was not a particularly horrible half time show". I think it's time that people just admit that half-time shows like this are just inherently horrible. They're pompous, over-produced ostentatious displays of corporately-approved egos, that have nothing at all to do with the game.

My biggest problem with the Rolling Stones was that the game was in Detroit. IIRC with the exception of Aretha Franklin singing the National Anthem, there was no performance by someone from Motown.

I agree with Travis in that it "was not a particularly horrible half time show", I'd just emphasize it as "was not a particularly horrible half time show". I think it's time that people just admit that half-time shows like this are just inherently horrible. They're pompous, over-produced ostentatious displays of corporately-approved egos, that have nothing at all to do with the game.

I thought Janet's boob was appropriate... fit in with the boobs playing the game, and the boobs on the boob tube watching it.

The rest of the nation will be under Boob Tube Law, or "Everyone glue to the boob tube 24/7!"
