There's a big difference between today and yesterday.

I have had an enterprise level workstation for years, with 15500 rpm HDD. Noisy fans, noisy HDD.
Kind of fast. Was so in 08 and stil is.

Working with a consumer grade, slower  HDD is a punishment.

Where did you get a 15K RPM disk drive??   Those are only available to enterprise customers and they are far from cheap.  The normal consumer disk drives are either 5400 RPM or 7200 RPM.   Western Digital does have a 10K RPM disk drive but again that is not cheap.

The  <insert your colorful phrase here> Hard drive is slow as a tired old slug. And it's 5400 rpms, which I assume stands for revolutions per minute, as in it's moving.
I am used to the 15.5K RPMs ones, and even they seem slow compared to the slowest SSD.

But, 1TB of disk space only runs $30 in the HDD configuration. Not much of a consolation. Thankfully it appears that Solid state stuff has really come down in price, as in you can get a 1TB from a reputable maker for $200 or so.

I've heard it's de-facto impossible for a foreigner to get an employment visa to allow them to work in India.
Great point.

I bet we're one of very few countries in the world where our policies encourage companies to deprive our citizens of jobs.

I don't totally buy into the occult interpretation, I just like this guy's political commentary. I'm a Christian and I'm supposed to disregard the occult. Supposed to.

I've read about the stuff you cite about the link of the Trumps to Nicola Tesla.

Today scientists use terms like quantum entanglement to explain coincidences and what is alleged occultic events, and supposedly Chinese scientists have recently figured out how to achieve instantaneous long range communication with quantum entanglement.

Touch the TV series is on Netflix. I always want to smack that little bastard kid who keeps running off and predicting numerical coincidences.

The Styxenhammer guy's basic view on this seems to be that reality is nowhere as mundane as most people think regardless of causes. I agree with that wholeheartedly.


Interesting. I am watching the first episode. A bit like "The Knowing", which was a very cool flick.

Oh shyte. I misread the labels. I initially read 4,18,533  as 4,18x,533  thinking it ended up being 29K/year - I knew something was wrong, while of course it's more like 3K/year.

They do not deal in thousands like in US, but in a different denomination which explains the way it's spelled out.

Oh what a glorious shythole.

I watched it per your recommendation. He discusses the Barron Trump book which he says he didn't read but just skimmed through. The review was kind of rambling. He says synchronicities are important to pay attention to in Occultism, and notes Barron Trump's adventures clearly deals with occult themes (I'd use the term supernatural but they're synonyms in a way) He says this was normal for children's literature of the era. He says the author could not possibly have known what was coming (I take it he's saying the author was not a soothsayer and was not intending to make a prediction of the future in this book), and it's interesting that it has so many parallels to today. He notes that 19th century books of this nature, fantastic voyages to Oz or the bottom of the sea, or the center of the earth, influenced occultism in the arts, movies and literature in the subsequent century. He mostly seems to be framing the context for this genre of literature as it pertains to his own beliefs. I didn't find the review particularly interesting as there wasn't anything new.

In the video notes he says he'll deal with the "Last President" book in another video.

Myself I'd say this is possibly prophetic, though I agree the author would not have known he was making a prophecy. I'd say the prophecy has more hits, more things it seems to be foretelling, then most alleged biblical prophesies that were thought to come true, sometimes more than 1000 years after they were foretold. I think a lot of those Biblical one's like the supposed Messianic prophesies are incredibly vague and the details don't really match the reality. There's also the issue where they actually change the translation to try to make it fit better, such as retranslating Isaiah 7:14 so "young woman" is now "virgin" and Emmanuel is somehow a nickname for Jesus, while also ignoring all the rest of the prophecy that doesn't match.

At least with this one they got the name right.

Also, it's a established historical fact that Donald Trump's uncle was a renowned and brilliant scientist who was the one that went in with the FBI to Nikolai Tesla's apartment after he died, and confiscated all of Tesla's secret papers and notebooks detailing things like unlimited energy, wireless energy transmission, plans for a death ray, and some say, notes on how to achieve Time Travel.

So the argument that Barron Trump's Fantastic Journey will involve going back in time to warn people about the dangers to come, perhaps after a global apocalypse caused by Hillary and Soros, is not unreasonable at all.

I don't really like these "satanic" guys. I've not seen the insights in this guys talks that you have, but I've only watched a couple of them because of your recommendations.

There's real satanists out there like Soros and Hillary and I consider them quite dangerous. Along with Podesta, Katy Perry and Lady Gaga's 666 blood eating demonic dinner girlfriend. This vlogger calls himself 666, I'm not a fan of that.

Anyway in summary, I think there's more parallels with this book than a lot of other prophecy claims, so there's a reasonable argument it's prophetic, along with the Shadilay stuff. However, I've seen different Shadilay covers and I'm wondering if the one we usually see isn't partially photoshopped.

As a novelty though it's worth looking at just because the Oz and Jules Verne and Gulliver's Travel genre is kind of interesting.

The time travel angle is also in this very specific case not a crackpot theory due to the true life insanity of the secret Tesla papers likely being held by the Trump family.
