Got this in my email today... seen it before but thought I'd post it anyway... not that I believe any of it. I've put some comments in it like this (Ed - a comment)
The Secret behind the number 11 - Pretty Chilling
Read to the bottom. Try it out. I did and I got goose bumps
If you are a sceptical person - still read on as it's actually very interesting!!
This is actually really freaky!! (Mainly the end part, but read it first)
1) New York City has 11 letters
2) Afghanistan has 11 letters
3) Ramsin Yuseb has 11 letters
(The terrorist who threatened to destroy the Twin Towers in 1993)
4) George W Bush has 11 letters
(Ed - Shame that George Bush has only 10 eh?)
This could be a mere coincidence, but this gets interesting:
1) New York is the 11th state
2) The first plane crashing against the Twin Towers was flight number 11
3) Flight 11 was carrying 92 passengers
9 + 2 = 11
4) Flight 77 which also hit Twin Towers, was carrying 65 passengers
6 + 5 = 11
5) The tragedy was on September 11, or 9/11 as it is now known
9 + 1+ 1 =11
6) The date is equal to the US emergency services telephone number 911
9 + 1 + 1 = 11
Sheer coincidence..?! Read on and make up your own mind:
1) The total number of victims inside all the hi-jacked planes was 254
2 + 5 + 4 = 11
2) September 11 is day number 254 of the calendar year
Again 2 + 5 + 4 = 11. (Ed - No shit!)
3) The Madrid bombing took place on 3/11/2004.
3 + 1 + 1 + 2 + 4 = 11.
4) The tragedy of Madrid happened 911 days after the Twin Towers incident
(Ed - Strange no-one has said the Twin Towers looked like the number 11)
Now this is where things get totally eerie:
The most recognized symbol for the US, after the Stars & Stripes, is the Eagle. The following verse is taken from the Koran, the Islamic holy book:
"For it is written that a son of Arabia would awaken a fearsome Eagle. The wrath of the Eagle would be felt throughout the lands of Allah while some of the people trembled in despair still more rejoiced: for the wrath of the Eagle cleansed the lands of Allah and there was peace."
That verse is number 9.11 of the Koran.
Unconvinced about all of this Still ..?!
Try this and see how you feel afterwards, it made my hair stand on end:
Open Microsoft Word and do the following:
1. Type in capitals Q33 NY. This is the flight number of the first plane to hit one of the Twin Towers. (Ed - Haven't verified this, one maybe you should)
2. Highlight the Q33 NY.
3. Change the font size to 48.
4. Change the actual font to the WINGDINGS 1
What do you think now?!!
Send this to as many people as you know and in 11 minutes you will get a
nice surprise, if you don't you will get the shock of your life in 11 min.
Why you'd need to send this within 11 minutes is beyond me? Usually I hate this kinda rubbish but hey, even "coincidence" has 11 letters.
