It hit me when I looked at the Feedjit gadget on the right side of my blog page. This Feedjit thingy records your hits, whenever somebody visits my blog. It doesn't say WHO you are (thus my last post), only where you came from.
When I checked out my Feedjit today, the place names swirled around my head, creating a kaleidoscope of letters, numbers, and secret ancient meanings. When the meaning came to me, it had me shaking in my shoes, so I had to share it with you.
First, let me point out that my visitors came from 21 American cities, and 8 international cities. They are as follows:
- Charlottesville, Virginia
- Milton, Florida
- Miamisburg, Ohio
- Fontana, California
- Richmond, Virginia
- Toms River, New Jersey
- Palmyra, Virginia
- Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
- Tempe, Arizona
- Rancho Cucamonga, California
- Reading, Pennsylvania
- Austin, Texas
- Alhambra, California
- Sharpsburg, Georgia
- Hollywood, Florida
- Chattanooga, Tennessee
- Los Angeles, California
- Chesapeake, Virginia
- Dallas, Texas
- Seattle, Washington
- Glendale, California
- Tehran, Iran
- Hong Kong, China
- Odessa, Ukraine
- Jakarta, Indonesia
- London, England
- Lausanne, Switzerland
- Pahuatlan, Mexico
- Dumbarton, England
OK--Now you've got to follow me on this one. You can't possibly put the two numbers 21 and 8 together and get the date 21/8, because we don't have 21 months in a year. So you've got to put it together as 8/21, which is coming soon, right? You'd think so, wouldn't you. But what year?
What you've got to do next is realize list out the first letters of each city, like this:
See how that works? Isn't it obvious by this point?
OK-so maybe you don't see it yet. Let me explain. You have to decipher the Roman numerals that are embedded in this coded message. Which are the Roman numerals?
American Cities: CMM------------CL-CD-- ; International Cities: ----LL-D
If you add these up, it equals 600 for the international cities and 2,850 for the American cities. Now, that doesn't make any sense at all, until you subtract the international cities from the American cities (because we all know America is the greatest) and get 2250, which is pretty close, but far enough away that it's safe to make a prediction of the future.
So, the secret mystical blogger code is saying that on August 21, 2250, some great and momentous event is going to take place. What could this be? How can we determine it from the hometowns of the visitors on my blog?
Ancient Greek, of course!
All I had to do was take a look at the Greek alphabet, and pull out the letters that have Greek equivalents, while discarding all the letters that don't have exact Greek replicas (capital Greek letters, only, of course, because prophesies are important things, and would never employ uncial letters).
So CMMFRTPPTRRAASHCLCDSG THOJLLPD becomes MMTPPTAAH THOP.
Much easier to deal with, don't you think? Isn't the meaning becoming obvious? Of course, it's an anagram!
The secret encoded message spells doom and gloom for a major city in the United States. Due to unsteady pH balances in the earth's crust, a volcano will erupt. How do I know this? Because the anagram says:
PH HOT MT TAMPA Or, in English, pH - Hot Mountain Tampa!
Still, another way of reading the anagram realizes that, since they come side by side in the English language, M cancels out P, and vice versa. Since we have 2 M's, they cancel out 2 P's, and vice versa. In that case, we drop MM PP, and we are left with:
TOP THAT -- HA!
