Yeah but luckily the world's leaders have come together to release 'QE Black', an alternative form of economic stimulus that will save the world.


Crisis averted.

It's for profit, not QE. They will not push oil prices down. Oil prices will trend higher because that's what creates "inflation", more so than money printing itself.

Yes, if Greece dares default, there will be tanks on the streets. German Panzerdivision tanks taking over Athens.

The global economy will soon be a land of ICE, or credit FREEZING.

They'll pass this shit if they have to drink a million gallons of 

fresh baby blood to do it. I don't know man, right now, as crazy as

it seems, i think the governments of the world are prepping for 

2012, or Elenin, or Nibiru, or Earth entering sometime of asteroid

belt where the comets come fast and furious.

I know it sounds goofy, but the alignments with the sun and Earth

cause some massive Earthquakes, there are 33 active volcanos at

the moment, and the M-i-ss-i-ss-i-ppi is rising like Charlie Sheen

at a national high school cheerleading competition.

Oh, and add in there, we all know that the real problem isn't Greece

defaulting and falling off the planet, or even the banks exposure to

their toxic crap, but all the Credit Default Swaps that are ticking 

like time bombs. I'm going to piss on some dominos and pick a number,

oh joy, FIVE TRILLION if/when Greece defaults.

Who insures this shit? The little people ain't allowed to know.

And, the dickhead Republicans don't want us ever to know,

and the pussy democrats are too busy buttfucking each other

to care. 

I don't give a shit if you're athiest, christian, buddhist, catholic, hindu, 

jedi or Norse.

We're smack dab in the middle of Armaggedon/Ragnorak/Birth Pangs of a New Age

The BLACK MONOLITH showed up as Kubrick predicted,

and humanity used it to create CDOs, CDS, and a bevy of bogus

bullshit financial instruments.

Jesus Christ went all KUNG-FU ass kicking on the bankers, currency

demons in the markets back in the day, now we've got our Capitalist

American christians saying "Who can fight the Beast? BUY NETFLIX!"

Times, they've changed.

Get ready, cuz this ain't funny, my name is THOR and I'm about

to kill fake money.

God Bless Everyone

Whew.  I should be okay.  I am a Catholic, not a Christian, so I shouldn't have to worry.

I was at Target earlier today.  I saw a lot of fellow Americans that are fat enough to qualify for Deputy Prime Minister of Greece.

Did anybody else get an ad at the top for dating Greeks?  Will we be seeing mail order brides from Greece coming to the U.S., en masse, like the Russian brides circa 1994?

"The BLACK MONOLITH showed up as Kubrick predicted..."

And don't forget Arthur C. Clarke...but I catch your drift.  Remember in the sequel 2010, penned by Clarke, the monolith took over Jupiter, introduced water and air to the Jovian moons and lit Jupiter into our solar system's second star.

Interesting parallel in that the banksters are attempting to light their own Jupiter, with their own air, money, etc., right here amongst us.  Also, as a very strange parallel to our times, the banksters...

"... regard the star Lucifer (formerly the planet Jupiter) as their primary Sun, referring to ours as "The Cold Sun". Though their settlements are concentrated primarily in the hemisphere of Europa which is constantly bathed in Lucifer's rays, some Europans have begun in recent generations to explore the Farside, the hemisphere facing away from Lucifer, which is still covered in ice. There they may witness the spectacle of night, unknown on the other side of Europa, when the Cold Sun sets."

-from Wiki.

And remember also the dire warning in the end of the film...


Kinda gives you the creeps, eh?

LOL, The moon europa! Thanks for making me remember this great movie. I always liked the second part of the monolith-saga the most.

Sound effects and still shots of this movie give me the creeps every time I think about it.


Wow, the ending of this movie makes a lot of sense now. I always giggled about the idea of naming a moon after a continent... who decided that???


Did you know that Arthur C.Clarke also wrote a third part? 3001- The last odyssey? Maybe this has all the answers we need...

Europa was a Phoenician princess in Greek mythology, whom Zeus fell in love with and, in the form of a bull, he stole her away and carried her to Crete.  He assumed human form and took her as a lover.  Galileo named the four moons of Jupiter that he could see after four of Zeus's lovers.  Jupiter was the Roman name for the king of the gods, the Greeks called him Zeus.

Ok, makes sense.

But since when did they start calling this continent "europe"?

And what was it called before?

Did/does europe have other names?

A neat aspect of Clarke's four books, 2001, 2010, 2061 and 3001 was that some of the plotlines did not follow through in all of the novels.  Clarke explained that this was because all the novels occur in separate but parallel universes.

Exactly what I have been saying here since last year.

Something else also came to mind yesterday, while listening to some political news:

The current [minority] government in Australia seems hell-bent on losing the next election (due by mid-2013 at the latest) -- firstly, by implementing a very expensive, government owned, taxpayer funded, fibre-to-the-door, "national broadband network" to replace the perfectly good existing privately owned wireless, cable and copper network. They've apparently even signed a deal with the current major broadband provider to hand over their fibre and copper infrastructure to the government and cease to provide any wireless broadband after the handover!! How's that for a perfect setup for government controlled information distribution to hardwired IP addresses?!

On top of that, this minority government (supported to a majority only by the Greens) is also looking to ram through a very unpopular 'carbon tax' against strong opposition from the electorate. And they won't be taxing the coal miners either -- because that would cause coal buyers in China to have to pay the costs! Nooooo! They have a much better idea ... tax the electricity producers so that they can pass the costs onto the Australian consumer! Of course, the government says they'll "compensate" those affected, by reimbursing from the tax collected, but we all know how long that would last!

So, the signs are now appearing that Australia won't be the place to emigrate to when departing communist Europe or prison-farm America next year. The Australian electorate may be drug-fucked from all the fluoride in their water and additives in their food, but they need to be certified 'insane' if they don't stop this further pillaging!

I'm going to do some more googling for governments that don't currently seem to be planning on being in power beyond the end of 2012!
