Test 5 Email - The end .....? then say Hi to Hans 155

As usual a day after the test is published, Hans has sent an e-mail telling us about test 5, he says that he has "devised a number of particularly challenging questions "

The email also tells us that the recruitment programme will end at 12:00pm (PDT) on October 7th.


(view the email here)



There is a hidden message in the source code for the email on the website version :-






The number in the message is a phone number in the US 1-323-7438573, when you ring it you get through to Hans Van Eeghen's voicemail and you can leave a message for him. Listen to Zort70 leaving a voice mail for Hans below.

Listen now:

Zort70 said...

In the source code message, what do we think the numbers mean ?

13237438573

Zort70 said...

Ah could it be a phone number ?

Zort70 said...

Yes it is !!!!!!!

It is a US phone number, when you ring it you get the voice mail of Hans and you can leave a message !!!

Lisa said...

that's neat but this is the first email I haven't received ! I hope I get it today I hate not being in the loop. Hey, I made it to number two on the leader board ! yippeee. I promised BadNumber I wouldn't take number 1 spot so I will stick with 2.

Zort70 said...

Congratulations Lisa

Lisa said...

thanks Zort !

Nickb123 said...

I do not recommend calling that number internationally, it cost me mucho dinero.

I say just wait for the audio to emerge online. The transcript is up already.

EmeraldIsLost said...

Yes well done Lisa!!

What is the point behind that; to really annoy Hans? Ugh.

Ellen said...

Good Morning!
I've been distracted so much lately, seems like I'm missing stuff. I am anxiously awaiting the birth of my 3rd Granddaughter and I get to name her!!! Anyway, off to blog about all the stuff I've missed now...:D
xoo

Zort70 said...

I've sent an audio file of me saying Hi to Hans to the other admins as I can't convert it at the moment so it can be put on the main blog page.

It isn't that exciting, but it does have the whole voice mail answer message.

Lisa said...

finally I got my email. I was starting to feel left out !! I called and left Hans a message.

Sayid'sgirl said...

zort
That's weird, because as far as I know the US doesn't have any area codes in the 100's.

link

Ange said...

It's a California Area Code

So, this is L.A. again, we might need to get 00Maven on this!

I want to leave a message but have ZERO VOICE...yeah Bubonic Plague has mutated into something Flu like and I am home again grrr.

Sayid'sgirl said...

Yesterday I was pretty much done with this ARG and the internet in general. I spend to much time on the computer anyway. But I'm feeling better now. I am a true Cancer after all. :)
Thanks to ANM and ange I think I finally get the test cheat.
I went to the link emeralislost gave and I read every post. I looked at all the answers the guy gave and I typed every concievable combinations of buttons and it still didn't work.
I will try one more time.

Sayid'sgirl said...

Thanks ange.

Sayid'sgirl said...

Oh and congratulations lisa on your #2 spot.

Ange said...

I left a croaky, froggy message for Hans Van Eegen in California. GOSH I hope thy don't compile these sound files and use them in a montage somewhere!

Okay so the source from the mail said, "Say hi from BS." I know that means BS wants us to call Hans and say something BUT WHAT? Also, kinda out there but could Hans Van Eegen be Black Swan?

PS: I'm SO glad you didn't quit SayidsGirl!

Sayid'sgirl said...

In my other post I should have said clicked....buttons not typed.

Thanks ange.
I get in these moods sometimes. I'm over it. lol

Zort70 said...

ange has converted my phone call to Hans so I've updated the main blog page with the MP3 of my call and voice mail.

Lost 2010 said...

I'm just reading along for now. I don't even understand what you guys are talking about on the Test 5 cheat, so I haven't taken it yet.

These videos of Hans remind me too much of those videos they show at Disney World before you get on the rides. Especially Mission Space and Test Track actually.

Lisa said...

you should totally send that to Darks site. The one he has up is lousy and hard to hear.

EmeraldIsLost said...

lovely message there zort.:) Thanks for that, coz theres no way i'm phoning up myself to hear it, lol.

Nickb123 said...

Holy crud we completely missed the REAL test 5 cheat! See my explanation (I can't explain it again y'all):

http://blog.lostpedia.com

Lisa said...

that's the cheat that was figured out here a day ago. same one

Nickb123 said...

Why didn't Dennis post it on the main page?

Codysmom said...

nickb123

so, you only have to do that one? none of the other questions count?


congrats, lisa!!!!!!!!!! I knew you'd do it:)

interesting developements today.... what to say to Hans... I have lots of ideas:)

EmeraldIsLost said...

it is on the main page in the test 5 article

Lisa said...

yeah just skip questions 1-6 and do number 7 is all. I called Hans and said, well I made it to #2 on the leader board, now what do I do ? and left my number lol

Nickb123 said...

Bloody hell how many Dharma points does it take to get on that leaderboard, a few million?

And ah thanks for the link there.

Anonymous said...

Best news in the e-mail is the assessments are ending by Oct. 7. I dunno about everyone else but I've been ready for the next phase for a while now.

-speculator

Codysmom said...

Thanks lisa and nick! I haven't taken test5 yet

Lisa, I have a feeling someone will be contacting you????? wouldn't that be cool?

Lisa said...

I just wonder how many tests they will get us to take between now and the 7th. There is three more tuesdays between now and the 7th

Codysmom said...

sayid'sgirl, "quit" is a four letter word! shame on you:)

ellen, congrats!!! hmmm girl baby names,. so many

Codysmom said...

lisa & all other black swans: did you check out the new and improved page? let me know what you think, especially if the text is too small, thanks!

Nickb123 said...

Well someone viewed the DWY source code for the flash when they added the test stuff and they coded in for 8. 8 makes sense too - eight sides to the octagon. Also, in the video to accompany Test 3 Hans said "we aren't yet half way through" and then for the video accompanying Test 4 he stated "we are now over halfway"

From this, it definitely seems like 8 tests.

Ange said...

@ nickb: Ange and Zort70 added it to the main page. We try to just sort of add to the posts if there is new info rather than making a new post one for every development :D. Hope that helps.

@Speculator: It's almost like they started this ARG with the glyph hunt from TLE and we are all hoping it'll pick up! Where as TLE was BLAMMO out of the gate then glyph glyph glyph coma in the end.

@lisa: I kind of feel like with Hans being so frustrated in the last video, and now with us all calling, they might cut the assessments short. I dunno, I just get the feeling that the "dossiers" they are creating on us might get cut short somehow. Also totally randomly, what are they going to do with the photos we uploaded to our profiles at DWY?

I like that we actually get to be involved today with this phone number, and it makes me think we'll be getting some more real world interaction in the California area in the next phases maybe.

Nickb123 said...

Pretty girl names, Holly? Sarah, Grace, I always liked Claire too but a little too Lostie.

Codysmom said...

ange, as much as I would LOVE it if they cut the assessments short, somehow I doubt it. They (Hoodlum) have most likely had this thing and the timing of it all figured out from the get-go. And FEEL BETTER!!!! Got a relapse, huh??

I like Grace (nick-name Gracie..:)

Codysmom said...

Considering I am also a Black Swan.. lol, I would love to think of something clever to leave at Hans' voice mail.. but I'm not feeling very clever at the moment. Any ideas?

Nickb123 said...

"Hi Hans, its your mother. Stop recruiting people to join your cult, and sort out your tango tan."

Sayid'sgirl said...

Barbarajay
I finally got around to taking your test I got a 90.
Passafist I got a 70 on yours I was doing good until I got to the last few qestions. :)

Codysmom said...

lol, nick!!!!

Sayid'sgirl said...

Oh jeez I just looked at the number again to write it down to leave a message. I see now it has a 1 before the area code. duh

Lisa said...

if you mean the BSWY myspace, yes the font is a bit small but I like how it is all lined up now and oyu don't have to scroll back and forth to read the whole page. I love the colors too btw, I hate sites with black backgrounds so I was happy to see that it was bright and cheery

Codysmom said...

thanks, lisa!
I was think I would try a little bit bigger font (hope it wouldn't change anything else). I didn't know you had to scroll side-to-side before.. it didn't on my computer(s)

maven said...

Morning all! Some action today! Yeah! Yep, area code 323 in in the LA area. Things seem to be based on PST..the ending date of Oct. 7 is at 12pm PST.

So we all have dossiers...that's a lot of paperwork! LOL

Hope you're feeling better, Ange! And good luck to Grandma Ellen!

maven said...

I called and left a message saying I'm very interested in the DI and I live in the LA area and would like to meet him in person. I actually left my phone number! And I did say that the BS said HI!

Codysmom said...

great voicemail message, maven!!!

Sayid'sgirl said...

I called up and said "Hi Hans, just wanted you to know that the Black Swan will never be stopped." then hung up.

Codysmom said...

Good one, sayid'sgirl!!

I put up a new blog on the Black Swan myspace to put what you said to Hans... should be interesting! I hope people will report what they said.

Codysmom said...

should be: to put what they said to Hans

Capcom said...

Even though I'm not participating anymore, I'm having fun watching you all going through the motions. Your comments and info are great for following along! :-)

Codysmom said...

Hi capcom!!!!!!!!!

Codysmom said...

I just took test 5 with my non-cheater, toilet scrubbing account and I'm in Chronos.

It was interesting.. the first 6 questions were really, really, really easy and then I got #7 wrong (didn't want to cheat) and after that the questions were harder. This was a different experience than when I tried the test not logged in at all. I remember those questions all being harder. Do you think the DI is trying to help out poor, intellectually challenged non-cheater dummy account? lol

Why aren't you playing the ARG, capcom? I miss you (and memphish)!

ib4uc said...

Hey Locos. Been without electric since Sunday because of Ike so I'm finally catching up. I only had it out for 4 days -- can't imagine what the folks are going through in Texas. Thoughts and prayers going out to all of them.

Sayid'sgirl said...

codysmom
Left a comment on your page.
BTW how do your get the music player to autostart?

Catherine said...

Hey Guys,

I just found this website...and it makes me super excited!!!! I have a question regarding test 5, cause my computer won't let me click on the tab for it. Is that happening to any of you guys!

Thanks,
Catherine

Codysmom said...

So happy you are electrically connected again, ib4uc!!! The most I've ever had to endure that was 3 days and it was awful! Yes, thoughts and prayers to those in Texas!

I got the blog comment, sayid'sgirl and I responded to it (it was great!!)

to get your music player on autostart:

Home
My Account (on right)
Miscellaneous:
My Profile: Auto-start my profile music player when visitors come to my profile.

make sure this box is checked

then click on save all changes

Zort70 said...

Catherine, glad you are super excited about being here, and welcome to our little corner of the blogosphere.

What make and version of internet browser do you have ? Some of the older ones don't work quite right with the DWY pages.

maven said...

Thanks, Codysmom, re my message to Hans! I tried to sound sincere! LOL

Capcom: We miss you!

Catherine: Welcome here! The more the merrier! Yes, that happened to me on Test 5 (if you're talking about the cheat "buttons") and I just gave up.

Sayid'sgirl said...

Thanks codysmom
Welcome Catherine!

takes a village said...

Maven,and Catherine,
My cheat was just a click away,a click away.
I couldn't get it to work either.

My message to Hans: No-mas te Hans.
Black Swan says Hi; With more feathers than you can count.Come on over to the dark side.

EmeraldIsLost said...

'come on over to the dark side.' lol. i like it.

Hi Catherine! do you mean that you can't open test 5 at all? There was a point yesterday when something similar happened to me; the tab for test 5 kind of just went blank and it wouldn't open; (i think it was just the site having a funny 5 mins) because then i tried opening another tab and then tried it and it was fine. I recommend just trying again later, maybe it will sort itself out.

Sayid'sgirl said...

Well after a day of messing with the cheat I finally got 100%. Ta Da! lol

maven said...

Congrats, Sayid'sGirl! I tried Firefox and IE, and still got nowhere! I've given up.

Sayid'sgirl said...

I'm sorry maven. I know you've probably read every explaination out there like I did but maybe if I explain you can get it.

Skip all the qestions until you get to # 7 You'll have 3 sets of numbers. Take the last set and "say what you see" example 111321 would be 31131211 (3 - 1s, 1-3, 1-2 and 1-1)
Ok now you have that. use your 3 sets of numbers. The first set = 1 the second set = 2 and the third set = 3. So you would click set 3 set 1 set 1 set 3 set 1 set 2 set 1 set 1. Then wait a few seconds and the screen should flash and flip over with a score of 100%.
Be sure to wait a few seconds because I think that was my problem nothing happened immediately and I would click the back button.
I hope this helps. If you understood and didn't need this explainaton I apologize. I just want to help you get 100% too. :)

Ellen said...

Just a little OT diversion...I could really use some advice from all you guys! I have a small poll set up at:

CGLF

If you find yourself with a minute or so to spare, please stop by and vote on your choice (there's only 2). Thank you so much!

maven said...

Ellen: I voted for #2. I'm assuming this is for your new granddaughter-to-be!

Sayid'sGirl: Thanks for your explanation. I'll work on it again tomorrow. Too tired tonite!

Zort70 said...

Ellen, definitely number 2 for me as well

Ellen said...

Thank you everyone! Maven and Zort-I agree (I guess...). I love the name Sofia.

Back to topic at hand:
I cannot for the life of me get that cheat to work. I've tried and tried and I guess I'm (duh) missing something...oh well. I get 70% every time I take the test, so I guess that will have to do.
xxoo

takes a village said...

Ahoy Mateys.
There's no better day than today than to take my old Pirate test, (only a few sprogs have taken it so far)http://www.dharmawantsyou.com/site/?utid=389577659460233096285044924171#/qp
You should already know the answer to #1. Godspeed me buckos.

Ellen,I voted for Sophia.As long as it's a name she won't hate,you can't go wrong.Congratulations.

Sayid'sgirl,I may give it one more shot,but I've got 100% either way.

Zort70 said...

takes a village - I've just shivered some timbers and hoisted the mainbrace and then took the pirate test with one of my spare DWY accounts.

I like the answers to question 6

EmeraldIsLost said...

good morning all!! nice pirate test takes a village.

Sayid'sgirl said...

Arrrrggggg Everyone!!
Ellen I like both choices. #1 is unique and you don't hear it much. and #2 is beautiful and not used much today. It is a hard choice but I think I like #2.

Ange said...

Zort, you probably already know this but you're on the main page at Dark UFO...neat!

FWIW Ellen, I voted Sofia too.

Takes a Village: I'm going to take your test now. I'm also pondering if they'll disable out quizzes at some point since the 17th has come and gone, or just let us keep getting points until recruitment is over?

PS: If you have Firefox and have troubles with DWY acting right (which I do for ALL the quizzes) there is a cool extension called IE Tab that might help. It's been magic for me.

Lisa said...

that's weird Ange, I have firefox and I've never had any troubles with the DWY site except when they update it. But then my only problem is that the site isn't allowing me in.

Dennis said...

Good Morning LostARRRRRRRRRRRGGGGGG!

A Great, Grand Talk Like A Pirate Day It Be!

Zort70 said...

Arrrrrgggggg, shiver me timbers and save me from davey jones' locker, i'm famous !

Lisa said...

lol that you are ! your phone call was alot clearer anyway ! now I'm off to take a pirate test !

Zort70 said...

Ange - that is a good point about the quizes, the 17th was supposed to be the cut off time.

Lisa said...

I just checked that again on the DWY site and it just says it will be the cut off for your test to make you a instructor- what ever that means !! doesn't say we can't make them any more or take them.

Zort70 said...

Ah ha, I suppose it makes sense to keep the test creation and taking tests live, taking that away might get rid of the one thing that has sparked some interest.

EmeraldIsLost said...

Wow i love the pirate banner on the main page.

EmeraldIsLost said...

you've really gone all out for pirate day, lol.

Ange said...

Hehe...awesome banner Dennis!

Ahoy!
Avast, hoist up yer grog maties and toot your hornpipe...it's Talk Like a Pirate Day

Incidentally, this is partly that bilge rat, Dave Barry's doin'.

Lost 2010 said...

Ahoy there mateys! Just thought I'd swing over from yonder spanish galleon and let you know that I love the banner.

maven said...

Ahoy, mateys! Argggg....that banner shivers me timbers, Dennis! LOL

Sounds like it's going to be Sofia, Ellen! And, can you guys believe it's Elizabeth's 1st Birthday tomorrow?

Codysmom said...

Jolly day, me buckos! I spy with ye eye ye be enjoyin' scurvy pirate day. I lust th' new banner, dennis! i reckon 'tis time to purge th' DI. I be sick 'o tests!!! AAAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRRRRGGGGGGGGGGGGGG!

EmeraldIsLost said...

Hi guys.
Don't know if i'm being way behind the times here and maybe its already been disproved, but at the lost forums they reckon that a forum member there by the name of ludic fallacy is black swan; and reading up on what the ludic fallacy is and their argument in the thread i just found it interesting, possible even. But anyway, i've only just come across it, so if it is old news, please forgive me and let me know!

Zort70 said...

emaraldislost - it certainly makes a bit of sense to be investigating, here is Wikipedia says :-

The Ludic fallacy is a term coined by Nassim Nicholas Taleb in his 2007 book The Black Swan. It comes from the Latin Ludic deriving from Latin ludus, "play." It is summarized as "the misuse of games to model real-life situations".[

Zort70 said...

@Maven - I hope Elizabeth has a great party, time is certainly flying.

(but in which direction.....)

EmeraldIsLost said...

i find it interesting because the Black Swan is obviously sceptical of the Dharma Initiative in some way, and they are the ones trying to change the Valenzetti Equation, but the Ludic Fallacy dictates that it is impossible to predict things and to be in possession of all the info, it is a 'rebuttal to predictive mathematical models used to predict the future'. Seems to tie in. links to this ludicfallacy8 stuff:

http://abc.go.com/primetime/lost/index?pn=mb&cat=33026&tid=424265&tsn=1

http://abc.go.com/primetime/lost/index?pn=mb&cat=125448&tid=449995

its very fishy.

takes a village said...

Blimey Maven.
The lass be one tomorrow? That be mighty good news.
Codysmom;
Aye. Let's hornswaggle that scallywag Hans till he cries Uncle. Hoist the colors.
What say ye?

Codysmom said...

emeraldislost, thanks for posting about ludic fallacy! "It is summarized as "the misuse of games to model real-life situations". That's something I've been wondering about... that this ARG is an immersive experience. Will check that out!!

Yarr, Hans better watch out, takes a village!!! We're gettin' on to him!

aw, maven! I can't believe 1 yrs old already (I bet you can't either!)

Ange said...

EmeralsIsLost: GREAT find! I'm inclined to want to follow this lucidfallacy8 thing as it develops as it's on the OFFICIAL ABC MESSAGE BOARD!

Hopefully Hoodlum/ABC et al have learned their lesson. If they're going to place clues for us in message boards might as well use official channels that are linked right on the bottom of the Home page of DWY.

This LucidFallacy8 started posting back in July. I'm going to have a look at all of his/her posts, but maybe there will be something about to come out of this as BS seems to be more active with each new test.

Congrats Maven on being a rockin' Grandma of a 1 year old, and Happy Early Birthday Elizabeth!

EmeraldIsLost said...

lol, thanks, we all know how much we want something to happen in this arg, so hopefully something will come of it. This could be easily fabricated, too, but they have posted 23 times (numbers); which is what ruckusguy did on his youtube account isn't it?

Capcom said...

Emeraldislost posted: "rebuttal to predictive mathematical models used to predict the future"...that certainly sounds connected to our old friend the Valenzetti Equation. :-o

Codysmom said...

I hope this is for real!!

check this out

http://www.buzzle.com/articles/135661.html

EmeraldIsLost said...

hmm checked out some other boards now; apparently darkufo have posted something on it a while ago, as well as spoilertv; seems like a lot of other people feel its a fake. I'm reserving judgement, i think.

EmeraldIsLost said...

on the other hand i think that everyone is slightly too mistrusting after the whole duaneisinsane thing.

Codysmom said...

Oh, nice new avi, emeraldislost!!!!!

I would really like to know if lucid fallicy is fake!!! I will reserve judgement, too, until it is settled.

I love all the counterfactual history stuff, though... I was looking into that ever since I found out what a Black Swan Event is. It makes some sense to me that what the DI (or at lease Ben and Widmore) has always really been about is to REALLY change (or find out) how to improve predictibility. Counterfactual historians theorize... do Ben and Widmore or the DI go beyond theorizing because they can with the "special properties of the island"? Do they sacrifice real people's lives in the hopes of the greater good?

Codysmom said...

I want

Codysmom said...

to be

Codysmom said...

comment #108 !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! LOL

Ange said...

Dark UFO is SpoilerTV ;). I agree that everyone is mistrusting after Duane-gate, but the facts are that last game there was an "insider" posting at Lostpedia and Dark UFO. There was also a lot of conflict then, but the fact that this is on an ABC Board makes me want to have a closer look.

CodysMom: That was so many layers of awesome! Congrats on 108 :D:D

EmeraldIsLost said...

i meant the boards at spoiler tv; there is a separate thread on there different to the darkufo one. Don't get me wrong, i still think its likely, just reserving judgement.

& lol codysmom!

Codysmom said...

:)___ange!

Sayid'sgirl said...

My first impression is that this person is not the black swan. I haven't read many of the posts but one person's opinion of this being true is that--
"Ludic mentioned very early on in the thread that she was in the black swan group. That was before the tests started, before dharma released the email that first mentioned that a "black swan" would even be involved in the game. Before we even knew we would be classified into groups."

This person is mistaken on the timing. The email with the "Banks Claw" clue in it came out on Jul. 29th Ludic posted the above information on the 29th. If this is Ludic's first post then it seems to me that they found the clue researched it and chose a name based on it.
Ludic asked another poster if the had been classified yet after taking the test. The other poster asks classified? Ludic says No word yet... physicist? doctor? janitor?
Which is the list of positions shown in the commercial. I think this is what Ludic was referring to.
When asks if they had been classified Ludic answers "Two Swans, one black, one white...based on my name, I am part of the Black Swan team!
Again I think this comes from the research he probably did on black swan and is having fun with it like codysmom has.The picture on the book The Black Swan has a black swan on a lake with a reflection of a white swan in the water. I don't know like I said this is just my first impression.
A poster metion something about--"Ludic also makes a reference to clues leading to that famous bridge collapse. Any ideas what clues Ludic was referring to, because he/she refuses to say another word about it. I asked twice for clarification."
I have no idea what that is referring to. I'm going back to read more maybe I'll change my mind.

Codysmom said...

good sluthing, sayid'sgirl! What book with the swan on the lake are you talking about? And yes, I'm having fun with this (my mind has been understimulated for years...lol)

keep up the good work!!

EmeraldIsLost said...

the bridge collapse refers to the story in mysterytales, i believe; March has 32 days. There was a bridge collapse in that, wasn't there?

Oh and as for that book picture; has anyone noticed that it is the same picture as the swan used in the video interfernce on dwy? i'll find a link for it so you can see, hang on..

Lisa said...

yes, it was in that comic book http://www.mysterytales40.com/march-has-32-days-last-story-from-the-mystery-tales-40-comic-book-96555

EmeraldIsLost said...

ok see it here; its a rubbish picture, but there we go it makes my point. (this is only one version of the front cover because i've seen others that are different.)

http://pamlin.net/blog/2008/02/black-swan-by-nassim-nicholas-taleb.html

its the actual same swan picture they use for the swan in Han's videos.

Sayid'sgirl said...

codysmom
I wasn't entirely correct about the pond. But remembered seeing it.
The Black Swan by Nassim Nicholas Taleb.

pic

EmeraldIsLost said...

lol you've just found the same thing; your link is much better, though lol.

Sayid'sgirl said...

Well I see emaraldislost beat me by one minute. I linked a pic instead of the website. We used the same website though. :)

Oh I forgot about that bridge.
That clue was hidden in the very first email we got from OGR. The Black Swan email came later.

EmeraldIsLost said...

yes; i see your points Sayidsgirl; you're making me err towards the not-believing-this-person-is-black-swan side of things now. Who knows? At least its given us a topic to ponder over, hehe.

Sayid'sgirl said...

Oh I agree. It's fun to ponder. And it gives us someting to do until the next test. And I could be wrong in my opinion.
BTW does anyone think our Dharma I.D. cards will ever come into play?

Codysmom said...

Ah, thanks for clearing that up, emeraldislost and sayid'sgirl!

I guess this ARGGGGGG will be going on for sometime, so it may be that the ID cards don't come into play until much later...
patience is bitter... lol

Zort70 said...

emeralislost - are you pondering what I'm pondering ?

THIS SITE NEEDS AN INSTANT MESSAGING CHATROOM LIKE IN THE DAYS OF TLE!!!

Ahem, just saying.

When the time is right,the story will unfold; kind of like Lost. We've got a log way to go,(138 days). Very interesting reading about The Black Swan, and the Ludic fallacy.
That ID card is burning a hole in my pocket.
Pond-ering,that's what Black Swans do right?

I just laugh a lot. hmm. well. you're all just so amusing. :) i laugh a lot? i'm not happy with these sentences. Oh well i'm going to shut up now. enough pondering before this post becomes an essay. i fear it may already be too late.

Happy First Birthday Elizabeth!!
Hope it's wonderful. Enjoy that first piece of birthday cake. :)

maven said...

Thanks for the birthday wishes for Elizabeth everyone! Big party is tomorrow! Stay tuned for pictures!

Where does time go? I guess we'll find out when we all start working for the Dharma Initiative.

Also, good luck to LOST and Michael Emerson at the Emmys tomorrow.

ANM said...

Happy birthday to Elizabeth from me too, and every finger in my body is crossed for Michael tomorrow!!!I went treking on a big mean mountain today so I'm beat, but I will try to stick around for a while and catch up....zzz

Have i posted yet today?

Adding my birthday wishes for Elizabeth, Maven :)

I just thought i would post this, since i have been PONDERING over it since yesterday. (got to stop using that word!) I have decided that i would not be surprised if the Ludic Fallacy (theory) did not play a major part to come in the story of this arg. It just fits in so nicely against the DI's wish to change the numbers, especially if Black Swan is in agreement with this theory, which his choosing of the name of Taleb's book would suggest. It pits the two against each other nicely, and gives Black Swan a motive.

ANYWAY, that is all! Going to sleep now!

ANM said...

Me too, I'm moutain-broke!lol

Capcom said...

I think you're on to something Emerald. And if the VE is involved, Mittlewerk can't be far behind, perhaps! We know what a stickler he was in TLE for following the VE to the letter, by the percentages, etc. Maybe TPTB will bring him back to finish the job as he threatened.

Tonight I tried it a few times not logged in, to make sure I was doing it right.And now I have a Black Swan 100.
Black Swan all the way.

You're welcome for my part of the tutoring that helped you get 100%.
It took me forever to understand it and then to accomplish it. lol

Capcom said...

Are any of you New Yawkers watching the last Stadium game tonight? The pregame show with the old timers has been awesome! :-D Go Yankees!

maven said...

Watched that pre-game at Yankee stadium, Capcom. Sad to see an icon go.

Watching the Emmys...disappointed so far (don't want to spoil it for anyone).

Here are pictures of Elizabeth celebrating turning one!

When I view my progress, there's a male voice in the background music. It sounds like he's saying single words or short phrases, possibly backward. Has anyone been able to decode this yet? I don't know how to get the sound file to listen to it reversed.

so this is where youse been hiding!!

Happy birthday Elizabeth! We are so glad you were born!

Just popped in to say hello, and miss you all, and I can't wait to have some TV worth watching again.

And yes, this New Yorker's tv was fixed on the Yankee game (even though we are a Mets family)

so sad...but at least the Yanks won the last one at home!

much love all around

I only think that is what is being said... I could be wrong, but I have sent the sound file to the admins!
