Thursday Theories – Birthday

You’re probably thinking “Wait, you’re not writing something fun on your birthday” My dear friends and readers, this day is not over. I love to learn, so I learnt about Birthdays. We just take for granted we get one. How did they start? What does it mean? Numerology? Star Signs? There are some many things that take place on a Birthday.

  • “Happy Birthday To You” is the most popular song in the English language. But be careful the next time you sing it, it’s copyrighted!
  • August is the most popular birth month, accounting for nearly 9 percent of all birthdays in the world.
  • On the other hand, the month with the least amount of birthdays is February.
  • In 1997, Paul McCartney’s birth certificate became the most expensive birth certificate in the world, when it sold at an auction for $84,146!
  • Speaking of candles… the first birthday cake with candles was had in 18th century Greece.
  • Europeans were the first ones to use noisemakers on someone’s birthday, as they thought it would help keep evil spirits away.
  • William Shakespeare died on his 52nd birthday — April 23, 1616.
  • Early Christians viewed birthday celebrations as pagan in nature. 
  • In China, a newborn is considered age 1. Thus, a 1-year-old in the West, as well as most other parts of the world, would be aged 2 years in China.

There is a site that you can visit to find out what happened on your birthday: MyBirthdayFacts

What is numerology?

Definition: Numerology is the pseudoscientific belief in a divine or mystical relationship between a number and one or more coinciding events.

A lot of Numerologists will use the numbers of the dates of your birthday, to give you a more spiritual type belief of who you are. It’s kind of similar to Astrology (your birth signs). You use the numbers of your date of birth, to figure out your life path number. Which is usually a single digit.

Each life path number has a different meaning.

It is calculated by adding up the numbers in your full date of birth.
For example, April 4th 1992, would be 4 + 4 = 8. Then the 1992 is broken down as 1 + 9 + 9 + 2 = 21.

Now you add the two digits of 21 together like 2 + 1 = 3.

This is the same with any double-digit numbers which you should keep adding together until you end up with a 1 digit number.
Example: 19 becomes 1 + 9 = 10, then 1 + 0 = 1). Finally, add the 8 and 3 together for your life path number i.e. 8 + 3 = 11.

So take today, as an example

29/04/2022

2+9 = 11

4

2+0+2+2 = 6

6+4+11 = 21 – 2+1 = 3

3 would be your life path number, if you were born today.

Mine is 1 =D

Thursday Theories – Easter

First thing first, I am not Religious. So call me out if you wish.

However, onto the topic at hand.

Friday is not “Happy Easter Day”, that’s the day that Jesus dies. Do you have any idea how many people say “Happy Easter” on the Friday???!!!

Sunday is the day for “Happy Easter” Hence the eggs. Rebirth, reborn.

That’s it really, lol

I think it’s the biggest thing that a lot of people miss. Honestly the amount of times I’ve seen people say “Happy Easter” on the Friday. That’s why you have hot cross buns on the Friday, it has a little cross on a fruit bun.

Of course there is a lot of debate if Easter was taken from the Celts. Spring is for rebirth, fertility. Everything is taken from something else. So very likely Easter is from a Celt tradition. The funny thing is, in Australia were heading towards Winter, a season of DEATH!lol…But you know, it’s also how you look at “death”, as it can be rebirth in itself. The “death” of a toxic personality, I don’t know what to write about, lol

Thursday Theories: Too cool, not to be cool

I was inspired to write this post after reading both Smile for the Camera [socs] by Paula Light’s Writing Site and Part of me by Rachel Mankowitz (check them both out!). Funnily enough, they both wrote their posts on the same day, and I spent the rest of my day, trying to think and break down my thoughts

When you get a chance, please check out Rachel Minkowitz’s Young Adult novel, Yeshiva Girl, on Amazon.

When you get a chance, please check out Paula’s books for sale on Amazon.

Thank you ❤

As with both these lovely ladies, I too … Have never understood the whole popularity or “what is cool” things

I know…It is shocking

Shows like Buffy, Sex in the City, Angel, E.R. etc … I love them, but when they first came out … I didn’t start watching them until a couple of seasons in. The only show I can remember watching when everyone else did, was Dawson’s Creek…You know something? I really don’t like it that much now.

Joey’s annoying

Dawson’s annoying

Pacey can be annoying…

Too be honest I still don’t understand what they were talking about. What kind of teenagers were they!

See, I don’t mind not being popular, now that I’m older.

Everyone I know or knew, who one might consider “popular”. They’re all horrible, and in hindsight, they always were. What about yourselves?

So lovely ladies and jellyspoons … Who wants to be popular!

Thursday Theories – Your Theories

I know it probably seems a little lazy, but I would love to hear about YOUR theories. Or are there any theories that you would like me to look into too?

The last couple of weeks, my brain has gone into such a fuzz. I even dropped a class this week from my studies, and transferred into something that seems a little more simpler, for the time being.

One of the theories that I guess I could write about myself, is with my new job. We look back in time, and are putting things for ye olde year and put them online. So I saw something today, I’m not sure how much that I can say, because of confidentiality. However, you know how in “modern” times, we read about the young girl whose been betrothed to a old man? Oh, it REALLY happened

The youngest girl who I saw, who would have been married off…Was only 13! Her “partner” was 19…But she was only 13 when she married! This is like in the 50’s! I just didn’t think this was happening then.

I found the biggest age gap so far…62 and 30 … I also found a age gap of 40 and 23 … The woman being 40! My little “woke” mind, haha!

Thursday Theories – No Theories

With everything going on in my life in the “real world”, I didn’t have the time or the mental energy to really go and research into anything. What I’ve done instead is I’m going to write a list of some of my personal theories. I believe that I have done this before, but maybe not for a while.

  1. I believe that bigots, any kind, are scared, of the “unknown”. (It’s not a excuse to harm others)
  2. I believe that people who have privilege, don’t understand what cancel culture even is, or pretend to not get it.
  3. Not so much as theory…but…The moment you become a bigot, you automatically do ‘cancel’ any good work you’ve done before. Hitler was popular because he kept his promises and helped Germany to pay back the debt from WW…You know before the “incident”.
  4. In all honesty, and I know I’ve only been streaming for about a month. But I feel like the older you are, the better you would do at streaming. Like the younger streamers seem to get really caught up with, quiet frankly, trolls. Or even when someone asks a innocent question and they go off on them.
  5. I believe that people who say “It’s just my opinion” Truly know that they are wrong. Still can’t wait for that one to die in a fire.
  6. I don’t think Boris Johnson, actually cares about anything. Other than what he can get out of being PM. He’s different from Trump, in that, Trump finds the power intoxicating. Whereas Johnson is like “whatever…I got Brexit through”. Do you know what I mean? From what I’ve seen, it seems like Johnson just lets his Ministers do what ever they want, and he just backs them.
  7. I believe that Brian Laundrie parents, know where Brian has been. If these remains are his remains, I am never going to assume that his parents knew that he might harm himself. But one does have to remember, these are Brian Laundrie’s PARENTS. Personally, I would be trying to get my son to turn himself in and talk with the police. If he ran away, I’d be horrified by that, and I would still be trying to turn himself in. But I also get what these parents are doing.

Thursday Theories – The Justice System

The Justice System, in most countries is probably the scariest real life horror!

This post isn’t going to be necessarily the hundreds of thousands of misjustices that the justice’s systems perturbates onto people. That’s why these posts are called theories, in reality, I think the whole Justice system in most countries should be just overturned. There are so many flaws and problems.

I am a huge crime show fanatic and the biggest reason I love them, is because 95% of the time, justice does happen in some form or another.

One of the more disturbing shows that I’ve been watching recently, is a show about how people who have been let out on bail, or parole, end up killing, hurt, assaulting someone while out on parole. What they take a look at, is to see what these previous people have done and why they were let out too begin with…What disturbs me, is that I have no clue why they were even out on parole. You’ve got serial killers and rapists, out on parole. Yet, Joe down the way, is in jail for life, no parole, because he got caught with Canabis three times.

Then they complain that they have to let these serial rapists and killers out, because the jails are overfilled … Uh, let Joe out.

The show is based on Australian crime, and as such, we apparently have three (3) levels of whose considered a risk, so there is: Low, Medium and High.

As one of the parents roughly said (whose daughter was killed by a rapist out on bail). “It’s the word risk that bothers me. It doesn’t matter the level of risk, if anyone is a risk, even if they’re a low risk. It means they’re still a risk to the public.”

The other program that I watched, years ago, was about the “West Memphis Three“. The case was about three boys, under 10 (I think) were killed in 1993. Three teenage boys were charged with their murders, and found guilty. Now the whole thing about this case, there was no evidence that the three teenagers killed the boys, and weren’t anywhere near them at the time of their deaths. But they MUST have done it, because they were ‘into’ Satanism.

“And without substantial physical evidence, police zeroed in on a pair of teens they knew well: Echols, a self-professed Wiccan who wore all black and read Stephen King, and his best friend Baldwin, who was considered an outsider because of his love of drawing and bands like Metallica.

In the beginning, everyone believed that the teenagers had done it. But in the end, even the families of the boys murdered, didn’t believe they had done it. Even though, it was pretty obvious that a lot of people believe in their innocence. All the “Justice System” could offer after decades in jail, and knowing that Damien Echols, was close to being put to death.

Was not a re-retrial, what they offered was a deal. They plead guilty to the murders, the three now adults, get freedom. But they can’t sue anyone, they can’t do anything really, other than get “Freedom”.

“The Alford plea is a seldom-invoked and somewhat confusing legal maneuver, but the basics are fairly straightforward. Essentially, it allows the accused to assert their innocence while pleading guilty, conceding that the prosecution has an overwhelming amount of evidence to procure a conviction.

How screwed is a system, that they don’t want to even consider relooking at the murders of three children, under the age of 10? They would rather stroke their egos instead. Even with the WM3 “released” the case is still considered close, so no one can look into it and WM3 are legally still accused of murdering them.

And these are just TWO cases. It would be a never ending blog.

Don’t even get me started on how, in the UK, in 2021…That “legally” rape is only, when its done with a penis. Even though when you read the legal definition for women literally raping. Though they don’t use the word rape in the definition. There are words and terms like “forced” and “non-consensual” So…you know…rape. Although there was a young girl, I think she might have been 15, maybe younger, who was charged with rape.

Thursday Theories – The 10 Commandments…Court Room or not?

This post was inspired, after reading a friends post on Facebook, about anti-vaxers of all things. This guy wrote a really relevant point about how it’s because of anti-vaxers and anti-maskers that we’re all in the position we’re in. How throughout History people have always complained about the Government “controlling” us. He even mentioned about how in the 80’s there was a article of a man who got a ticket and he was complaining about how the Government was trying to control them. The reason for the ticket? He wasn’t wearing a seatbelt.

Someone agreed with everything he said, except that they thought the 10 Commandments should be in a courtroom.

What are the 10 commandments?

  • I am the Lord thy God: thou shalt not have strange Gods before me
  • Thou shall not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain
  • Remember to keep holy the Lord’s Day
  • Honour thy father and thy mother
  • Thou shalt not kill
  • Thou shalt not commit adultery
  • Thou shalt not steal
  • Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour
  • Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour’s wife
  • Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour’s goods

As you can probably tell, after reading through that last. Only three of them are actual crimes. I do include:

Thou shalt no bear false witness against they neighbour.

Only because you can take that as perjury, which is a crime. So not even half of the commandments are even a crime. These would have only been Christian crimes, back in the day. They are not necessarily other Religions “Laws” or Commandments. I believe that someone people don’t even have to swear on the Bible, if it’s not part of their Religion or Belief system. I think it’s called “Affirming” rather than swearing a Oath.

Believe it or not, I actually have no issues with Religion, or Beliefs, in theory. Most of them are all about loving. And just loving your God or Jesus, or your Deity…Except for the Ancient Greek and Rome, but then they (I believe) were trying to make the Gods and Goddesses “relatable”.

We live in a Multicultural society, whether some people want to accept that or not. It’s not all about the Christian God.

Thursday Theories – Oh, I can call you worse than bigot

If you read my post on Monday, this sort of is a run on from that. So The Times, instead of posting about that on their front page. Decided instead to run a anti-LGBTQIA story with everyone’s “favourite” transphobe, Rosie Duffield. She declined to attend Labour’s conference, after being worried that she would get “told off” for her anti-trans views and words. The Times decided to calling trans people and their allies, trans extremists.

Fun Times, also, everyone should stop buying The Times.

So this one person, who just decided to ignore the truth. Were calling people like me, a violent misogynists, because we were calling out Duffield’s bigotry and calling her a bigot. Before they blocked me, I said to them that women like her are the problem with the UK.

Believe me dear, I could call Rosie Duffield worse words than a bigot, here are a few:

Patronizing

Degrading to women

Gaslighter

Pathetic (Seriously, can you imagine MLKjr just not turning up, in case he got told off)

Weak

No Shower

A Patriarchy Protector

Coward

Cowardly

I’ve had rape wished on me (by a large account that Rowling followed) called a groomer and a pedophile

I

STILL

SHOW

UP…

I know I’m in the right #Transisbeautiful Can you imagine MLKjr just not “showing up” Because he might get told off? Rosie Duffield is no MLKJr. That’s for sure.

What I would like to know, is you do have any words or terms that are may be a little more funny, but still “insulting” I spent the rest of that night, dealing out William Shakespeare insults…and it was a lot of fun!

Thursday Theories – The Music = My Country

I want to change this post a little this week. Over this week, I was listening to some songs that make me nostalgic for how I think my country used to be, and how it should be.

Music is a different form of communication, it can make us feel so many different ways. It can invoke emotions that we sometimes forget are there. What I am going to do this week, is post five songs that make me “sappy” for my country, Australia. When I hear these songs, it reminds me that there is something beautiful still in my country.

I would LOVE for you all to either pingback five songs of your own, that represent your country to you. Doesn’t matter why. If you don’t want to do a whole post, then please post in the comments, the songs you think represent your country to you. If it’s your country’s anthem, go for it!

When I was in America, I sometimes would listen to this one song on repeat:

I mean, everyone and anyone whose anyone, thinks this should be Australia’s National Anthem:

I still call Australia home- Peter Allen – Uploaded by:

You are very much missed Peter Allen ❤ ❤ ❤

This one, speaks a lot about what’s wrong with Australia. Especially with the treatment of Australian Aboriginal People. You can’t have the good without the bad. On a funnier side, this is the video that made a lot of men scared of Peter Garrett, because of his dancing, haha.

Not expected mentions:

Look … I know AC/DC, Kylie Minogue, INXS, etc. Are Australian bands/singers, do they have songs that make me think “Australia”. That’s fine. This isn’t a list of what Australian bands and singers are my favourite. These are a list of songs, that make me think Australia and make me love Australia. Not sorry, but Kylie Minogue doesn’t have one, lol.
