Week in 17 Mini-Marathon (UPDATED)

Well, it's that time again- time to wrap up random news stories with significant mentions of 17s and try to discern any meaningful patterns within. Pretty quiet week overall, but then again my attention's been focused elsewhere. BTW, that magazine cover reminds us that in July 1946 the first bikinis went on sale at the same time nuclear tests were being done on Bikini Atoll. Zany.

ITEM: In airborne news, there's this heartwarming tale:
KUALA LUMPUR (AFP) – A baby boy who made a surprise arrival on board an AirAsia flight this week will be given free flights for life with the budget carrier, as will his mother, the airline said Friday.

"The baby was safely delivered when flight AK 6506 was approaching Kuala Lumpur for landing at 2,000 feet," the airline said in a statement...

ITEM: Then there's this wacky aeroplane story as well:
Northwest Flight 188 from San Diego had overshot Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport by 150 miles, winding up in Wisconsin before turning around to land safely at MSP. Federal officials say the pilots apparently became distracted. Military jets had been on standby to track down the jet after it dropped out of radio communication for about 75 minutes.

ITEM: Strangey points us to this story, in which according to NAZCA NASA, the Atlantis is due to launch November 17 (ish):
If the Atlas V fails to launch on the first attempt (November 14), Atlantis may be reduced to a two day window – depending on the amount of time it would take to reconfigure the range – with Atlantis then holding the range for the 17th and 18th.
ITEM: I can't think "NASA" without automatically thinking "Egypt", which reminds me there was a more tragic transportation story this past week, involving a deadly train crash on Egypt's Giza plateau that has claimed 18 lives. Then there was this, which reader Alan points us to:
...a British nuclear expert fell to his death from the 17th floor of the United Nations offices in Vienna yesterday. Police and UN spokesmen said there were no suspicious circumstances in the death of the man, who has not been named, or any other person involved.

ITEM: Speaking of religion, there's also this gruesome story coming out of Nova Caesarea:
CHATHAM, N.J. – An arrest in the brutal slaying of a Roman Catholic priest has brought little solace to this bucolic, upscale community, which widely views the suspected role of the longtime church janitor as a second tragedy.

More than 150 people at St. Patrick's Church for Sunday's early Mass prayed for the Rev. Ed Hinds, whose body was discovered in the church rectory Friday, and for Jose Feliciano, who is charged with stabbing the priest 32 times with a kitchen knife.

Feliciano had worked at the church 17 years and his family is part of the parish.
ITEM: This past week found The Vatican working up its final merger/takeover plan of the Anglican Church, which recently hit a snag when the 'Global South' bishops nixed the plan. Plenty of Anglican action stateside, too:

MOUNT PLEASANT, S.C. – The Diocese of South Carolina voted Saturday to distance itself but not completely split from the national Episcopal Church because of church positions on same-sex unions and ordination of gays.

Eighty-seven clergy members voted to pass the resolution after a nearly hour-long debate during a special convention in Mount Pleasant, Canon Kendall Harmon said, with 17 voting no.

Guess what US highway Mount Pleasant is on?

ITEM: Here's some happy news to end this mini-17 marathon- Halloween, like other entertainment and fantasy activities like comic conventions, is experiencing a major resurgence as recession-battered Americans look for ways to take their minds over the systematic dismantling of their economy:
Despite the recession, Halloween is hotter than ever. According to IBISWorld, a market-research firm, Halloween sales will reach a record-breaking $6 billion in 2009, up 4.2% from last year. Retailers from Biloxi, Miss., to Brooklyn, N.Y., are reporting strong Halloween revenue. Over the past four years alone, the Halloween industry — which includes costumes, candy, decorations and greeting cards — has grown a remarkable 48.5%.

UPDATE: The Guardian obtains a copy of a spotter card used at political demonstrations. Note the division name Oracle 17. Fascinating.

UPDATE: Cardinals beat Giants 24-17 at Giants Stadium, located at intersection of routes 3 and 17.

UPDATE: New York amnesiac Jane Doe identified as Kacie Peterson, originally of Colville, Washington, which is located on US 395 (=17)

UPDATE: Soapie pointed this out recently- the "All Powerful" Alienware M17X!

UPDATE: Some bad news-
Poverty. The U.S. poverty rate, about 17 percent, is third worst among the advanced nations tracked by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development. In that sample, only Turkey and Mexico are worse.


  1. Then there's this one as well:

    After 17 long years, Kyle Unger is enjoying his first full day free of the stigma of being a convicted murderer.

    "It's the first day of the rest of my life. It's a new beginning," he said outside court, minutes after he was formally acquitted of the 1990 murder of 16-year-old Brigitte Grenier.


  2. That`s some awesome 17 spotting Chris!

    BTW, I'm curious if you've ever seen the youtube vids of 1Killuminati

    They're slightly disturbing and as you are far more versed in Jung than myself, if you get the chance I would really appreciate hearing your Jungian viewpoint on them.


  3. oops, forgot to mention that U2 is broadcasting LIVE from the Rose Bowl at 8:30 PT on youtube!



  4. Showtime NOW.

    10 = 1
    25 = 7
    17 !!


  5. Hi Chris,

    Don't forget about the new Dell computer I mentioned to you a couple posts back. With Windows 7 release last week Dell released the new Alienware 17 inch computer...supposedly the most powerful gaming system in the world!


    Also Chris, I'm getting more views than ever on my CBS soap opera blog post! I sort of sneak in a few tidbits that I learn here from you and I'm surprised that so many soap viewers agree. I am so surprised that I've had over 3000 views on one blog post I authored. You can check it here if you get a chance. I post there as heathersmom2.


  6. close encounter of the second kind, loss time: a gap in ones memory associated with a UFO encounter(amnesia).

    The new Fourth Kind movie is juss like what has been happening to me since i was 10 or 11.

  7. Trackback to the VMA's (occult to the max) and Beyonce was 17 when she won her first VMA and Taylor Swift was 17 when she received hers this year....and dealt with the cult initiation via Kanye West...hmmmm

  8. 17 seems to be about the chance to live life as a young person once again, immortality. perhaps even demon possession (but spun in a very positive light).
    B-17- found in seeds, if taken daily, protects one from getting cancer.

    Other numbers stand out to me as well and are highly occult. Please follow:
    Oh before that, they are pushing a lot of "air" references.. The tarot has 4 air signs and I think this is significant as the air elementals can go anywhere, see anything as they go with the flow and and can encounter all but for limited amounts of time. In the new "THE SERIOUS MAN" by Coen Brothers, the main characters brother says (after demonstrating a beautiful mind type inversion) that if someone could follow the AIR they would make millions. I think that that air sign people are more adept at catching the random events that occur in our life and making causual connections. I also think that the "RAIN" has to do with the condensation of air in the CLOUDS and the FALLING to the earth, which FLOWS into the ocean with the FISH. I think an esoteric meaning of "FISHING" has to do with capturing the AIR Potential in the FISH form, fallen, like RAIN as well as foolish female. This has to do with Metatronic Coding, starting with the vescis pices, then seed of life, flower of life, tree of life all the way to the metatron's cube. In Fritz Springmeier's work, he says that the illuminati plan to use the HaShem and the Metatronic Cube to fulfill their ultimate plan. I think the 17 memes is a "SEED" planted in the cosmic comupter mind that operates and is embedded within our realms of awareness to synch us into the metatronic soul matrix. SEE ANNA HAYES - 4.5 Hour video on History of Earth - Part 1-4. It's about soul groups and division of Matrix creation forces. I do not pretend to know which Matrix is preferred, however there seems to be a split agreement between the Emerald Covenant and the Luciferian Leviathon group that wants to run life on a lower base, base 8 but operating on 5 dimensions and pull energy from various gates and stealing from phantom matrices. If one is 70% or more locked in coding, perhaps at the Tree of Life, they are no longer able to be redirected into the christ consciousness or indigo spirits. I think this is what others are talking about when they want to "PLANT TREES" its really planting the serpent force in people's DNA which determines the capacity for capturing the field, handled by magnetic forces, keeping us Bipolar and under control of those maniupulating the poles. The flow.... is not always the place to be, it's which flow, which stream, which pond, which ocean does one want to be, and if one wants to be a stream of consciousness or a forest and operate as "Log Cabin Repulicans" upholding the facade of family while deteriating the moral covenant between a man and woman.

    Oops, I guess I had a lot to say.

    The numbers -- 27 is the hidden number that is referencing the hidden oath of "Blue Men", men participating the upside down bicycle, bisexual, force of the chi in order to apple up, donut'ize themselves like Dan Winter talks. It's all about riding the long wave of information packets so information that is enveloped inside the long waves can resonate more fully, (one can be more aware of what is going on, gaining leverage) but this is brought on by esoteric, often sexual gymnastics.

    More later..

  9. ^^ synchronistically speaking, everything you wrote makes perfect sense to my life. I'm an air sign :shrug:

  10. even to the # my comment is: 9

    The police rolled through London in a convoy: scores of patrol cars, armed-response vehicles, outriders on their bikes, vans with their windows shielded by metal cages. With a Met film unit recording everything, detectives forced their way past startled security guards, demanding receptionists open the secure doors that led to the normally hushed strong rooms, which in the three centres housed 6,717 safety deposit boxes.
    However, by talking to scores of box-holders, none of whom have spoken before, Live has uncovered a different version of Operation Rize, one that shows how the vast majority of those caught up in the raids were innocent. They have had their lives turned upside down over the past 17 months. Many have struggled to recoup their money and possessions, been forced into legal trench warfare with police lawyers and told they must prove how they came by the contents of their boxes.
