Rebecca Black & Friends :)

So I'm sure by now everyone (ok, most people) have heard about the hit "sensation" Rebecca Black. The other day I watched her youtube video for the first time, and must admit, as annoying as the chorus "Friday, Friday, Friday" is, the song itself is impressive for such a young girl. Below is the video:

Then my friend later on showed me this new version of Rebecca Black, called "Friday (FROM HELL!)

Of course, had to see a few other parodies which i've provided here for you. This one is "Friday (Brock's Dub)":

And lastly for a little extra fun, here is some weird guy putting a whole new spin on the song:

Enjoy my friends!

Power of the Crystal Skulls

Today I shall be discussing the Legend of The Crystal Skulls. The legend varies across all cultures, many people in today’s modern world choosing to settle on the Hollywood made Indiana Jones in which all the Skulls must be placed together in a Mayan Shrine on specific “Alters” so that the world can be saved.

An old Native American legend describes the existence of thirteen life-size human skulls made of rock crystal, that were said to speak or sing. According to the legend, these crystal skulls contain answers to some of the great mysteries of life and the universe. The legend also says that one, day at a time of great need, at a time of great crisis for humanity, all of these crystal skulls will be rediscovered and brought back together again to reveal their knowledge and information vital to the very survival of the human race.

There are very few legends that cross over cultures and times the way the crystal skull legends do. They are contemporarily shared by the Mayans, The Aztecs, the Native Americans and other indigenous people around the world (and in philosophical terms, they are recorded in Atlantean and Lemurian Times). These legends have been handed down from generation to generation for thousands of years, which attests to their enduring power.

The legend of the "Great Flood", which was passed down from ancient times, is one of the few enduring legends that is also shared by most cultures around the world - which scientists now confirm was real. While that event marked "an end time" for many people around the world, there may be some parallels to the Mayan Legends regarding 2012.

The more you learn about crystal skulls, the more you realize the power of multiple crystal skulls. There are many cultures that have legends about crystal skulls, sometimes involving different numbers of crystal skulls. However, "thirteen crystal skulls" seems to be the common denominator among most crystal skull legends.

Native American Cherokee Medicine Man, Harley Swift-Deer Reagan is quoted as saying: "The skulls were kept inside a pyramid in a formation of tremendous power known as the Ark. The Ark was comprised of the twelve skulls from each of the sacred planets kept in a circle, with the thirteenth skull, the largest, placed in the center of this formation. This thirteenth skull represents the collective consciousness of all the worlds. It connects up the knowledge of all the sacred planets.

Many believe that there is a strong connection between the crystals skulls, the Mayans and the Mayan Calendar ending in December 2012. While there is a current belief that more than 13 ancient crystal skull exist (some say 52, or 4 sets of 13), in recent years, the Mayans have spearheaded a grand reunion of North America's indigenous chiefs in an effort to unite forces towards the commonly foreseen future as recounted by the Mayan elders.

According to Mayan Priest/Shaman, Don Alejandro Cirilo Oxlaj Peres: "... The prophecy says now is the time of the awakening. This is your job now, to awaken. The Vale of the Nine Hells is past and the Time of Warning has now arrived. It is time to prepare for the Age of the Thirteen Heavens. The time of 12 Baktun and 13 Ahau is fast approaching, and they shall be here among you to defend Mother Earth. The prophecy says, 'Let the dawn come. Let all the people and all the creatures have peace, let all things live happily', for the love must not only be between humans, but between all living things. They said, 'We are the children of the sun, we are the children of time and we are the travelers in space. May all the songs awaken, may all the dancers awaken. May all the people and all things live in peace for you are the valleys, you are the mountains, you are the trees, you are the very air you breathe'....Now is the time of return of the grandmothers and grandfathers. Now is the time of the return of the elders. Now is the time of the return of the wise ones. And the wise ones are all of you. Now is the time to go out into the world and spread the light. The sacred flame has been kept for this purpose and now the time approaches when you will be required to love all things, to love a world that has gone crazy, to rebalance the heavens and the Earth. For the Time of Warning has come to pass and the Warriors of the Rainbow are now beginning to be born. The Vale of Tears, the Nine Hells, is over and it is time to prepare for the 13 Heavens. The ancestors are returning, my brothers and sisters, and we do not have long. Now is the time that the prophecies will be fulfilled."

Conspiracies abound, in hollywood and in homesteads. Are the whole proposed reasoning of the Crystal Skulls fake? Are they Real? Will we someday understand how Skulls like the Mitchell-Hedges skull that has absolutely NO discernable tool marks on it and CANNOT in this day and age be replicated so flawlessly have come into existence? Only time will tell. Perhaps on December 21, 2012 we will need to gather all (13 or however many) “Real” Skulls to save the world, I personally have my opinions, but try to keep an open mind until there is evidence to support one theory or another. Many have claimed to hear the skulls "talk, or sing" to them, reassuring them in times of distress, the larger ones are said to sometimes have iridescent lights coming from the eye sockets, and technologically, a few have even been rumored to wipe out entire hard drives. Real, fake, or massively misunderstood, the purpose and history of the Crystal Skulls will continue to intrigue people for years to come.
This is just a very brief glimpse over the Crystal Skulls Mystery, if you wish to know more I will make another post if 15 or more people request more info, otherwise I encourage you to research on your own. It's a fascinating story, with no clear beginning, middle, and surely no known ending.

What are your opinions?

New Oak Island Developments!!!

Ok, for those of you few who have been following me for awhile, you might remember the post I did about the Oak Island Mystery. Well.... A new outlook has come forward!

(If interested, scroll back through my posts and read the original Oak Island post)

Just when you thought the mysterious and elusive Oak Island treasure hunt had died down, a fresh new perspective on the mystery could overturn the entire context of the hunt and lead us in a completely different direction.

First Nations Researcher Keith Ranville has come up with a very distinctive and interesting interpretation of the Oak Island etchings which differ significantly from the existing interpretations due to his Native Heritage (Canadian) background.
What appeals about this new interpretation is that while the old interpretation, "Forty Feet below two million pounds are buried," relies too much on alphabet mappings, his are based on symbolism directly and provide a more reasonable and logical interpretation of the etchings. According to Keith, the etchings actually point to an island two islands east of Oak Island itself, called Birch Island.
As can be seen, a triangle occupies a majority of the northern part of the island. His interpretation is that the triangle, the very first symbol of the inscription, makes a reference to Birch Island, while the rest of the symbols are engineering instructions. A tunnel may lead from the bottom of the money pit, where the stone tablet was found, but then points towards the right-angled part of the triangle at Birch Island, giving the entire setup an even greater complexity than had been attributed to it earlier. The translation is:
Triangles, two angles,divides, south/north,at triangles right angles,two doors left of triangle,two doors right of triangle,upper,two,tunnels,divides,doors,triangles,doors,divides,upper/lower,three,tunnels.


Revised Translation
Triangles (second triangle) Divides south/north at right angles of triangles (two at the left angle)( two at the right angle of the triangle) upper two (openings) Divides doors, Triangle Divides Doors upper/lower three (openings. opening) three divides into (East/West) Divides to into Shafts In one south/north Two upper to south/north third, second Shafts.

These instructions point to what may not be a treasure at all, but an item or items of great heritage and historical value which would interest everyone. In fact, assuming that it old artefacts are buried there would make it all-the-more interesting, as someone had obviously gone through great lengths to hide it and keep people away from discovering the real location.

In addition, regarding the Skull Stone etching found on Oak Island, this was produced by Keith. Possibly confirming the role of pirates in this mystery?

What could be hidden there? We can only know if another expedition takes place to the area. This may be in sight as well, as he has received a letter of recommendation from the Dalhousie University in support of his research.
According to Keith, the top two symbols confirm the money pit symbols as genuine and go a huge way to authenticate their existence. In essence, the four Smith's Cove stone symbols read 'Four Underwater Doors Inside,' that may be somewhere inside Mahone Bay, Nova Scotia. These symbols are also clues towards information regarding the people responsible for this advanced set-up in Mahone Bay, who had an understanding of ancient writing and ancient building. It's quite possible that the people's records are in Birch Island.

The most mystifying clue awaited the workers at the ninety foot level. Here, just before hitting another oak platform, they unearthed a large flat stone on which was engraved a strange inscription that none of them could decipher.

The story or this stone and it eventual fate is one of the many frustrating footnotes to the Oak Island Mystery. More likely a stone with some sort of markings was found, for it is mention in all the early accounts of the Onslow Company's operations, and was reportedly seen by hundreds of persons before its disappearance in 1919. For many years the stone was used by John Smith as a curio piece set into his fire place of his home on Oak Island. There it was examined by many members of later search groups, including A.O Creighton who was partners in the Halifax bookbinding firm of A.H Creighton. In 1865, while he was treasurer of an Oak Island search syndicate Creighton brought the stone to Halifax, where it was displayed at his shop to attract prospective investors in the Oak island project.

The mystery continues to deepend, perhaps in the coming years we shall see the truth behind this mystery.

Again, to truly appreciate all of this, check my first post about Oak Island, and then this one.

Thank you all for following!

When You Wanna Sleep

Ever notice what difference a night's sleep can have on an individual, or more importantly, how they wake up from that sleep? Nothing makes a bigger difference in the outcome of my day than what happens those few moments between contented sleep, and aggravated demotivationally waking up.

Today, I was woken up by a phone call. This phone call was one telling me to get out of bed and fax some paperwork. Paperwork that was worthless at this time. My sleep was ruined for nothing. On TOP of being a day I had one class and could sleep in! >:/

Other things that have woken me up:
-Water being thrown
-Dogs jumping on my bed
-Body slammed
and many others.

What is the most annoying way you have ever been woken up?

Next post shall be about another myth/legend of interest

McDonalds, Where I'm NOT Lovin It

We all have our bad days, it's a fact, and it will happen again. But I get really sick of going to a restaraunt, sit-in or fast food, and every single employee act like they have the worst life in the world.

Seriously? Is it really that bad to have some form of income? To have a job to go to?

Does it really suck that much that a few hours out of your day has to be spent serving others?

Get over it people, I don't care if you are 13 or 73, When I order a Happy Meal, I expect some HAPPY with it!
