Power to the People!

Ebbsfleet United F.C., according to a recent report I saw on TV has now had the distinction of being the only club that has been taken over by the people, literally!

A-not-so-princely sum of 35 pounds was shelled out by each member of the website myfootballclub, and when 50,000 people put through such a sum of money, it does add up to a sum sizeable enough to buy a football club that plays in the lower echelons of the football divisions.

After 700,000 pounds worth of a transaction, it should be interesting as to how so many owners of different nationalities would come to a common consensus on issues pertaining to the club, such as player transfers as well as appointments to positions of authority.

Should be good fun to watch!

Conspiracy Theories Galore!

It seems like various conspiracy theories are the order of the day, and in an interesting deviation along acceptable trains of thought, it wouldn't be an unwarranted assumption to imagine that the recent state of plummeting markets all across the globe, that happened due to a cascade effect of sorts after panic ensued due to rumours of a US-led global recession, could be the handiwork of terrorists.

Terrorists have, by the looks of it, been very innovative in their methods to scare the pants off people, should the claims by various governments all across the globe who carp on about anthrax attacks and website hacking as a manifestation of terrorism have an iota of truth attached to it.

In light of such R&D invested by the alleged terrorists in avenues apart from the now inaccessible flight schools, admission into which is tougher than getting a H1-B visa to the US, it is but natural for the evil-mongers to look for methods by means of which they can inflict the maximum mayhem without people knowing what hit them.

With sound financial backing, the attempts to bring about a global recession could also be a terrorist scheme. Indeed so.
