Star Trek: Nine in a Line

As some of you may know, the town of Vulcan in Alberta has made itself the Star Trek mecca of the world. But it was once famous for something else:
By 1921, Vulcan was able to claim town status, which still exists to this day. Vulcan quickly became famous for it’s “Nine in a Line”, nine elevators able to store more than 750,000 bushels of grain. Pictures of these elevators were published in newspapers, national magazines, and on calendars everywhere. Vulcan’s “Nine in a Line” boasted the greatest grain storage capacity in Canada until a disastrous fire in 1971. Today’s agriculture related business remains the town’s biggest employer, with more than 1700 people calling Vulcan home.


  1. You're piling up the synchs man :) Awesome

  2. dude, checkout the Yahoo page right now(6/19 at 2:38 pm Eastern) re: Planet X. I wonder what your take on that is, I can remember you commenting on yahoo headlines before.

  3. Ah, yes- interesting! My take? It's probably part of some ritual cycle we are unaware of, but Sitchin's Planet X hypothesis is the weakest part of the argument to me. I don't know how a planet that far out could ever support life. There's no reason to believe that there was some garbling and Nibiru was not actually in our solar system.

    Thanks for the link!

  4. Thank you Chris.

    Now I know I don't need to cross the border to get that Roswellian vibe.

    I have to admit that I am a bit confused about the things orbiting behind Pluto.
    Because it sounds to me like they have been discovering the same object over and over and over.

    Seems all of these things are ignored every time someone finds something out there!

    Gotta be space-politics.

  5. I always thought that the United Federation of Planets rolled off the tongue not unlike the Russian Federated Socialist Republic does. Your analysis of the Star Trek Nine is very insightful, though I tend to conflate Isis with Hathor, so the warrior goddess tradition seems more appropriate with Seven of Nine from Star Trek Voyager. That's just my opinion, though.

  6. Forgive my ignorance Chris, but for a moment I assumed Nibiru was the Secret Sun which would rise again, would you mind sharing what your current catma(s) about the Secret Sun is/are? Thanks a lot and the last few days here have been absolutely amazing.

  7. Droidy- all will be revealed in the days to come!

  8. Set your tEaser to stun Chris! lol
    Can't wait, thanks!

  9. Hiya Chris, I left a comment elsewhere on your blog, only a number of minutes ago. I remember more about the ST11, Linlithgow European Premier thing, and it was a tie up with Vulcan.

    cheers - sorry again

  10. Christopher,

    Interesting that the 9 grain elevators burnt on 1971.

    1971= (1+7+1)=9 and 9. 99.
