Conspiracy Theory: A Magical 9/11?

Don't we all love conspiracy theories? I do. Conspiracy theories never fail to amuse me, especially ones that are well documented. Did man land on the moon? Well I don't think so - the proof of the theory against that theory is killer. Call me easily swayed and naive - but have you seen the proof against it? Anyway, lets put that aside. Through the progression of time, new conspiracy theories arise, and this new one will, definitely, 100%, blow you away.

September 11, 2001 - the annihilation of the twin towers by a couple of airplanes. A hoax? Maybe! Maybe.

I would like to thank TIME magazine once again for this. 'Loose Change' is a 90 minute documentary made by a couple of college students on why 9/11 was a well rehearsed show for a few government officials, on why it was a 'cover up'. It debunks the fact that 9/11 was a terrorist act completely. In a nutshell it states that the always controversial United States of America hoaxed the collapse of the twin towers and blamed it on Al Qaida as an excuse to invade the Middle East, and foil the evil that "terrorism" would eventually bring along. Can you believe that? What the hell did the US of A really want from Middle East, the oil?

The documentary 'Loose Change' might have been made by amateur college students on a Laptop, but it's one hell of a professional video. With unbelievable footage, and even more illusionary concepts and ideas, this might just change the way you think as to what happened on the morning of 9/11.

What's even more amusing is that there is another documentary made debunking 'Loose Change'. It falsifies most, if not all, theories put forth by "Loose Change".

However this other video just does that, it just falsifies some theories put forth by "Loose Change", but it doesn't completely prove that 9/11 was a terrorist act. The footage researched and showed by "Loose Change" is far more, well, convincing. But then again, I am still confused. I don't know what to believe. Do you?

A Tribute To 9/11...?

This is the first of a couple of posts on the infamous, tragic and literally unbelievable 11th of September, 2006.

Above is a picture of firefighter, Tiernach Cassidy of the United States of America, who took 9 months to complete that illusory tatoo. Yes, NINE months! Why? "The pain in my back was good for the pain in my head, " - that's why. The trauma of losing five of his firehouse's men will be imprinted on his back. The 'burning' towers, the five close friends and the memory - that's what the tatoo stands for, a tribute indeed.

Also, he got full news coverage for his pain. Even TIME covered his story, and that's how I got to know about this. But, wow.

Now imagine if 9/11 was a hoax.

Fantasy Premier League - DMHS 06

Thanks to Harendra Kapur, an abnormally aged, 18-year old, 12th Grade student of DMHS, DMHS has a Fantasy Premier League. Great intiative HaRRendra!

Harendra has told me to that he feels the league he has created will get a lot of publicity through this Blog. He wants you to do the following:
  1. Create your team at
  2. Join DMHS 06 Private League, by entering this code - 302564-132007.
  3. Enjoy the league for the rest of the season.
Furthermore, Harendra wants to add that he apologizes for the late initiation of the league. He says that he felt it would be better that a league started after school began.

P.S. - Forgive the sarcasm, but enjoy the league - I love you Harry! :P

Thailand - KEANE!

After fighting it out with my parents, I "convinced" them that I had to go for this concert. And it was the best way to end a vacation.

Impact Arena - that's where the concert was held, some 30 km from my hotel and this was what bothered my parents. Anyways...

I arrived some 2 hours before the concert began, and was praying that tickets the tickets would be available. However, getting a ticket was not a problem, not at all a problem, in fact it was no where close to being sold out. I bought far standing tickets for about 1000B, which is like dhs 100 - quite cheap for a concert compared to Dubai.

Half an hour left for the concert to start, no one was lining up, no hullah ballah, everyone was in their own world, eating, drinking, laughing, sitting..:S. I was the lone person in the line, and the security was laughing at me - mumbling away in their complex language. Just then some news came in that all far- standing ticket holders had to move into the front-standing line - well because you don't want to have an empty front standing pit! So there I was, right in front, watching one of the best concerts I have ever seen.

Some Thai band opened the show, and the nervousness on their faces was more than evident - they were average, and funny - nothing can beat Thai singing.

Right in front of me, on the other side of the railing, were 3 girls and this one long haired guy - who were also in their own worlds. They came off really pretentious with their American accents and heavily made up faces. One was crazy, one was medium crazy, and the third girl felt she was the most beautiful girl in the world. The guy was high, and these people were really loud and seemed to be having a great time - so well kudos to them - but hell, the artificial-ity (if that's a word)...lord! The reason for the above paragraph is that, for the entire period of waiting for Keane to come on stage, these four characters really entertained me.

Next to me was this 10 year old girl, Nicola (i think), who had an English father and a Thai mum. She was fluent in both of her parents' languages, which was really cool. She loved Keane, and I was really fascinated by her, really innocent and down to earth, she was an opposite of the 3 girls in front of me.

Finally Keane began, and blew the hell outta Bangkok. Keane comprises only 3 members, one drummer, one AWESOME keyboardist, and one BLOODY AWESOME singer. Performance wise, they were perfect. Their music is awesome, and their stage presence was even better. The arena was three-quarters full, but the audience were amazing. It was unbelievable, Thai people who could hardly speak english, mouthing every single word of almost every single song. I was quite awestruck. "Somewhere Only We Know" was a sing along. But the song I enjoyed the most was "Bedshaped". They ended with it, and well I kind off dropped off into oblivion. It was really really well performed and the light arrangements made it even better.

After Robbie, Keane is the best concert I have been too. So if any of you get a chance to see them, don't miss out - they really rock!
