Pope is the FIRST Francis, FIRST Jesuit, FIRST from Latin America, FIRST...
Non-European Pope in 1000 years. FIRST Pope to take the reigns while another pope is alive in over 600 years.
Elected on 3/13/13 at 7:06 (7+6=13) 7:06 was the local time at the Vatican btw..
He's 76 years old (7+6=13)
He's the 265th successor (2+5+6=13)
In taking the name Francis, he drew connections to the 13th century St. Francis of Assisi, whose middle name is Peter, btw...Peter the Roman, Petrus Romanus
a quatrain by Nostradamus regarding the 112th ?? Pope being the last pope, and that
he would be called 'The Black Pope' This new pope could certainly be called 'The Black Pope' Since he is a Jesuit.
ALSO, Barack Obama for the first time as US president is visiting Israel this month. He will be arriving in Jerusalem six days before the passover just as Jesus arrived in Jerusalem six days before the passover. Jesus arrived on a donkey and the symbol for Obama's political party just happens to be a donkey.
And your point is...?
OMG... I woke up and looked at the clock this morning at 6:07 (6+0+7=13). I didn't make the connection till now, OP. Thank you!
Obviously this means I will have som
And his phone number is 666-666-1313.
What the fuck do we do now OP???????
Thanks for your analysis, Rainman.
is all that mumbo jumbo supposed to mean something?
Who knew Dan Brown posted on the DL?
And I'm sitting here eating my 13th macaroon.
Okay NOW I really am scared.
And I'm sitting here with 13 inches in my hand.
FIRST Pope with one lung
This is scarey, OP! You're FREAKING ME OUT!!!!
"And I'm sitting here with 13 inches in my hand."
Francis, is that you?
Sadly, he's not the first pope to have been a collusionist to mass genocide.
That's just his hobby on weekends.
and F-R-A-N-C-I-S has seven letters . . . just like L-I-N-C-O-L-N!
[quote]And your point is...?
Exactly. Who gives a shit? All this religion shit is outdated and all these assholes are anti-gay, so why act like this is something special?
He took his name from the co-founder of the Society of Jesus (Jesuits), St. Francis XAVIER, not St. Francis of Assisi.
First Pope to be directly linked to the disappeared in Argentina's Dirty War.
How the number 13 fits I don't know. Maybe he directly ordered 13 'disappearances'. Nothing would surprise me after the Nazi.
Has anyone speculated, here or elsewhere, if his holiness likes me, me, me??
Patti L; Evita forever, baby!
OP, I skim things too quickly; I first thought you said:
Obama will be riding into Jerusalem on a donkey,
Obama is a donkey
The Pope will be riding Obama into Jerusalem
Thank you; I'll be here all week...!
I think a younger man that could have been around for another 20 years or more wouldn't have been a bad idea but, nevertheless we have the 76 yr old Pope Francis and he will be with for as long as the Lord chooses.
[quotes]he will be with for as long as the Lord chooses
or until he gets tired
Hold me, David.
[quote]FIRST Pope to take the reigns
Correction: he is from Latin America but he is not non-European.
He is Italian - of European descent, not Hispanic.
WTF? Spanish people ARE of European descent.
his parents were both Italian immigrants from Italy fleeing Mussolini before ww2.
the time was 19:06...
(Italy runs on military time.)
It could be that we have a "last pope" not because the world will end but that we'll finally realise organized religion is a load of shit.
Correct, r20. It was Nosferatu.
The new pope brings my new love, Italian correspondent Claudio Lavanga. Maybe a bit chubby and older, but oh so beautiful.
Francine the Argentina.
You screwed it up, R34!!!
It's Francine the Argentine!
Anywho, op... when Reagan was elected, they said he was the devil because his name was Ronald Wilson Reagan, and each name had six letters, gasp! 666!!!
Well he's dead now, and the world moved on.
Coud someone please explain to me WHY R25 keeps going from thread to thread posting that?
I know it's from an old TV show, but is it supposed to be funny? How does it relate to every thread R25 is posting it in?
"Francis is a beautiful blue-eyed brunette, who stands five feet eight inches and weighs a stunning 165 pounds.
(*promenades, turns, back to audience, looks at judges over one shoulder*)
At 76, he's a perfect 39-36-39 ...and he's a Sagittarius!"
R41 Wow! What does it all mean. I told you that numerology is more fun than the silly zodiac.....
One lung is also significant, I don't know what it means but it means something.
[quote]Correct, [R20]. It was Nosferatu.
No, r32, it was Nefertiti.
R43, isn't it obvious? Along with his two kidneys, his one lung forms a trinity.
Also, Sagittarius is in the night sky which is BLACK, and now he's the vicar of St. PETER, so we have a black pope named Peter and, thus, the last pope!
Meanwhile, Kennedy's secratary, whose name was Lincoln, advised him not to go to Dallas...
[quote] A zodiac troll?
No. Just making fun of the numerical stat spewing, reminiscent of sports commentary and/or old-time beauty pageants. And since there's nothing sportsmanlike yet plenty of pageantry about popeship, I thought ... you know what, never mind!
Enjoy your numerology and whatever.
And now that it had to be explained...joke ruined
To me he's just another run of the mill RC misogynist and homophome (bigot.) I don't give a rats ass if he is "modest" as opposed to a grand queen like the one before him.
Oh my God! His first full day as pope is 3.14, which is Pi, and his father is an eyetalian pisano!
Is The Ides of March a bad thing? I'm getting worried now.
Ok, that's pretty good OP.
St Francis of Assisi loved animals. He felt a special relationship with birds and it was claimed he could communicate with them.
Those watching tv yesterday waiting for the smoke, most certainly noticed the two sea gulls who roosted on top of the special smoke chimney waiting along with the world to hear that Pope Francis was the new Pope.
R53 The hosts of the Today Show also mentioned that St. Francis of Assisi is often pictured with seagulls.
R248 Actually I was being sarcastic/ironic. I referred to zodiac and numerology as wacky(numerology is almost as wacky)...numerology is more fun though!
R50 you mean Italian paesano. BTW both of his parents were from Northern Italy not just his dad.
Lincoln had a secretary named Kennedy, and Kennedy had a secretary named Lincoln!
FUCK THE CATHOLICS. FUCK THE POPE.
R59 R61 Get in line, honey.
FUCK THE CATHOLICS. FUCK THE POPE.
Get some sleep, hon.
OP? It's REINS, not REIGNS.
FUCK THE POPE. KILL THE POPE THREADS.
I just had to post something. Leaving this thread with '66' posts would be too creepy.
You're an idiot.
Long live our new Holy Father!
Not even a Pope in a dress who says he hates fags is as big a misogynist as you fags.
And with all of these firsts, he's still a white ethnic Italian male of Italian immigrant parentage and, by virtue of that, also an Italian citizen.
Congratulations, RC, you've really done something highly inclusive, novel and egalitarian!
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
