33 99 | Decoding the War Machine Headlines


Today's CNN front page headline is as follows:
  • This = 2+8+9+1 = 20
  • is = 9+1 = 10
  • a = 1
  • full-scale = 6+3+3+3+1+3+1+3+5 = 28
  • invasion = 9+5+4+1+1+9+6+5 = 40
  • This is a full-scale invasion = 20+10+1+28+40 = 99
What do you know, more master numerology, more multiples of eleven.  In this case, it is 9x11=99 (Or 3x33).  Below the main headline, the word 'directly' is hyphenated, a common practice by mainstream outlets from CNN to ESPN.
  • Directly = 4+9+9+5+3+2+3+7 = 42
  • War = 23+1+18 = 42
  • Gun = 7+21+14 = 42
  • Sin = 19+9+14 = 42
