    Same here, that poor little lamb was born soaking wet in it, did you see his/her picture yet?
    The difference between pigs and people is that when they tell you you're cured it isn't a good thing.

    Didn't this happen in the 2010 movie? Yeah, I know, it was Jupiter that became a sun but it's all the same.

    2010 movie? What the hell is that, some prequel to the Blair Witch Project?

    No, "2010" is the sequel to "2001 a space oddyssey".

    The Mayans, who spoke of "stabbing beams that penetrate from the heavens," had an exquisite understanding of these realities with their amazing knowledge of wave harmonics and resonance theory — perhaps even more so than scientists today.

    They based their calendar, unsurpassed by even today’s super-computers, on the core number of 52, claiming it to be in resonance with and of major significance to our world.

    (The principle of resonance ensures that when two objects have the same natural frequency, as one object emits a sound wave, the other will begin to vibrate in accordance with it.)

    A bit of research into the processes of certain stars and planets verified that indeed 52, give or take a few digits, repeatedly occurs in the cycles of things: Here are a few examples:

    1. The Earth’s orbital period (one year) is divided into weekly periods, of which there are 52.

    2. The variable cycle of Betelgeuse (its period of growing bright, then dim) occurs every 5.2 to 5.5 years.

    3. The Sun’s magnetic field reverses itself every 11 years; the mid-point of this cycle is 5.5 years.

    4. The orbital period of Jupiter is 11.86 years — its midway point is 5.93 years.

    5. The orbital period of the two stars in the Sirian system is almost 50 years (49.9).

    6. The Shoemaker-Levy comet, first discovered 5.5 years ago, took exactly that amount of time to connect with Jupiter. The impacts themselves lasted a period of 5.5 days.

    7. The distance from our sun to Betelgeuse is 520 light years (52 x 10).

    8. The distance from our sun to Antares, another supergiant of immense proportion, is also 520 light years, but in the opposite direction.

    (This is intriguing — that our tiny little sun should find itself positioned exactly between two of the largest, most powerful super giants yet known, is a great mystery!)

    Ah, I feel vindicated for not knowing.
