Why didn't someone tell me about this Shawn Johnson girl before?
I've been making up for lost time all night but now I find that she is out of the Olympics? Guaranteed not watching now, then.

The theory is that the elite who pull the strings in the world will fake an alien invasion to put the entire world into fear so that there will be no resistance to the conclusive formation of a one world government / new world order.

This was from back in 2010:

Are the 2012 Olympics part of a plot to take over the world?
Some people believe an elite clique will use the games to simulate an alien invasion in their plan for global domination

http://www.guardian....nspiracy-theory

Ian Crane may have popularized this theory (from last year):


World’s powers will fake alien invasion at the Olympics closing ceremony to keep us living in fear
— Ian Crane at Exopolitics Expo

http://www.thesun.co...-bloodbath.html

**RETIRED...**

"Have not those who disbelieve known that the heavens & the earth were joined together as one united piece, then We (Allah) parted them? And We have made from water every living thing. Will they not then believe?" (Qur'an 21:30)

11477626583_2368927097.jpg     49997_b70e6ae14ce1652fa11bd1dda624afd1.g   7649118508_ce3e8a74a1_o.jpg

"Some even believe we are part of a secret cabal working against the best interests of the United States, characterizing my family and me as 'internationalists' and of conspiring with others around the world to build a more integrated global political and economic structure--one world, if you will. If that's the charge, I stand guilty, and I am proud of it.” (David Rockefeller)

As I said, hokum. What a load of tripe - the secret rulers of the planet? Fake alien invasion? It would have to be some fake - we've seen Independence Day. Signs. District 9. If these so-called elite are so smart, they'd come up with a better idea than a fake alien invasion :lol:

Holograms of UFOs + HAARP end of the world sounds recently tested and heard globally + Propaganda Machine exclaiming that it's real

Add that up, toss in the olympics being viewed by billions, and you have a very real and potentially dangerous hoax, unless people are informed of it.

No you don't. You really don't. There is - at best - mildly circumstancial elements of a far-fetched, idiotic scaremongering exercise. That's it. All this talk of secret overlords is complete tosh and is a sad distraction from the great sporting event at hand.

Why don't we leave the controversy for another topic?

I'd rather just read about the Olympics in this thread, and not read about an "imminent alien attack"/illuminati crap...

I'll post this in the correct thread this time :lol:

I've never really enjoyed the Olympics. I'm not really a big fan of any of the sports, other than football. And Olympic football is a joke anyway, so the Euros are the highlight of my Summer where sports are concerned.

MADRID - Canadian diving veteran Alexandre Despatie suffered a large cut to his head in a diving mishap in Spain, making his status for the London Olympics uncertain.

The 27-year-old from Laval, Que., was hurt while performing an inward triple flip and struck the board with full force.

Mitch Geller of Diving Canada says Despatie lost his balance and his head hit the end of the springboard, just below the hairline.

Despatie was pulled from the water by lifeguards and his coach, Arturo Miranda, but Geller says the diver did not appear to lose consciousness.

Despatie required surgery to close the wound and is expected to remain in a Madrid hospital under observation for at least 24 hours.

Despatie, who has won two silver medals in previous Olympics, is not expected to compete in the Madrid Grand Prix this weekend, nor an event in Italy next week.

His mother, Christiane, says the cut is about 10 centimetres long.


Oh no Alexandre Despatie :(

I've got 15k worth of tickets stashed at work. Shame I can't sell them on, the commission would be huge :lol:

I went on the cable car earlier too. Never again -I hate heights and it was windy enough for me to regret getting out of bed this morning :(

That song is horrible in comparison =/

I'm still so annoyed at the way they handled the Beckham situation. Way to use the guy to land the games, sell tickets and then cut him off the team.
Let's be real.. when you think of athletes from GB, Beckham is at the top of the list. He definitely was strung along by Pearce. I hope he at least gets to light the torch as a consolation prize !

Neither. I'd want gold medals divided by number of competitors. China can easily get 40 golds, but they bring 400 people. If Canada brings 150 but gets 20 golds, they should be higher up, as its a greater achievement.

I prefer ranking medals by golds as opposed to overall. Puts more value on a gold medal.



In other news, the Beach Volleyball draws were held today. Canada has a team in both the men's and women's competitions, after having not qualified any teams in Beijing.

The men are in a group with the 6th overall ranked Brazilian team, 17th ranked Norway, and host Great Britain.

The Women are in a group with Italy (ranked 6th), Russia, and Great Britain.

Yup. I don't see Murray or Tsonga (or anyone else) beating the big 3 - now the big 2.

Fed is a legend but I'm for Djok all the way here. Would be fantastic if he won gold for Serbia.
