What is this pw for?

edit: It's that popup password box that I can't seem to find. Does it lead to that page in the spoiler?

(By the way, I got a 30 on the Prozira quiz, and was advised to sedate myself until the authorities arrived. Mr. Green And the disclaimer is hilarious.)

Archiving Stuff

I've spent hours tonight getting copies of all the stuff (just in case it disappears). Most is found on my flickr.

I haven't figured the best way to archive BetheHammer yet (since it's all text and no pictures).

Hurricane Boaz?

Sticking with the biblical themes here, I don't think the name of the hurricane that caused the red tide should go unnoticed. Not exactly sure of any significance from the story of Boaz in the old testament. Boaz is also the name of one of the two pillars of King Soloman's Temple. The other pillar is Jachin. These two pillars are present in all Masonic lodges as well. They can be also be found on the High Priestess Tarot card (at least on the Rider-Waite) to either side labeled with a B and a J. Probably really starting to do too much a brain dump here for this topic, but in some legends the Messiah was two people, a kingly (Jesus) and a priestly (John the Baptist) messiah. Just for grins, HIram Abiff is a key figure in Masonry. Their legend (it's not in the bible) says he was the lead builder of the temple. Maybe we'll be seeing more of these historic figures in things to come. Maybe the Masons play a part in Year Zero? Again, don't know if their is any significance at all, but I figured I'd throw it out there FYI just in case.

Oh yeah, Boaz is in the bloodline of Jesus.

EDIT: hmm, looking back on it John of Boston/John the Baptist? He did baptize the doc after all.

Medication Quiz

This is fun and very amusing, especially with all the 'Thirsy' options. If you pick all the 'thirsty/get a drink' options you get a low score. I got an 8 which said I'm basically fine, but my job may be at risk.

Keep drinking the water and your world is perfect! Wink

Is there any significance to the writing on the door where the band is playing in the video?

I love how the video incorporates so much of what we know about Year Zero, with the Resistance flags and the woman doing Opal.

I think the text on the door is a Bible verse: Revolutions 18:3-4, which in the Bible I used as reference says:
3 "For all the nations have drunk of the wine of the passion of her immorality, and the kings of the earth have committed acts of immorality with her, and the merchants of the earth have become rich by the wealth of her sensuality."
4 And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, "Come out of her, my people, that you may not participate in her sins and that you may not receive of her plagues;
I don't know how significant this is to the game, but it's quite brilliant as an allusion given the lyrics of Survivalism. The Bible verse (especially chapter 3) goes hand-in-hand very well with the song.

Judson Ogram

In reviewing this site I was trying to figure out where they came up with the name Judson Ogram. "Founded in compliance with Ogram's Law"....

Have we seen this law mentioned before? Seems to be a place for teens or that target 18-29 yo demographic, with some younger boys (after all, the choir is for age 13-17).

But in researching this today, I noticed the name - Jud sonogram.
Sonogram. Hmmm.... not sure if it means anything. But Ogram doesn't really mean anything either.

Just typing out loud.

Tonight at the Brixton show there were lots of yellow AIR flyers attached to all the railings.
Leading to an address with billboards/murals, leading to two new websites:

Jumping in

After trying to get caught up over the last week, I think I'm officially hooked. I've been looking to get back into an ARG and this one looks fascinating. Hopefully my real life won't keep me from participating too much.

Websites from the future I can buy with a little suspension of disbelief. Websites intentionally sent from the future by physicists experimenting in quantum entanglement? Now that's a hook!

Thanks to everyone who's been documenting this game thus far!
