2011 Hindenburg Omen that signaled Arsenal's demise
Because to every purpose there is time and judgment
therefore the misery of man is great upon him.
It is the greatest mystery of all
because no human being will ever solve it.
It is the highest suspense
because no man can bear it.
It is the greatest fear
because it is the ancient fear of the unknown.
It is a warning foretold for thousands of years.
It is our final warning.
It is The Omen.
Those who foretold it are dead.
Those who can stop it are in grave danger.
For he knoweth not that which shall be
for who can tell him when it shall be?
On 15 August 2011, Francesc Fabregas departed the club for Barcelona for an estimated €35 million. In addition to his loss, Samir Nasri left for Manchester City on 24 August 2011, ending a protracted transfer saga after playing for Arsenal in their game against Liverpool on 21 August, in which Arsenal lost 2–0, placing them 14th with one draw and one loss.
There is no man that hath power over the spirit to retain the spirit
neither hath he power in the day of death
and there is no discharge in that war
neither shall wickedness deliver those that are given to it.
The national debt rose $238 billion (or about 60% of the new debt ceiling) on August 3 2011
the largest one-day increase in the history of the United States
The US debt surpassed 100 percent of gross domestic product for the first time since World War II
According to the International Monetary Fund
the US joined a group of countries whose public debt exceeds their GDP
The group includes:
- Japan (229 percent)
- Greece (152 percent)
- Jamaica (137 percent)
- Lebanon (134 percent)
- Italy (120 percent)
- Ireland (114 percent)
- and Iceland (103 percent)
All this have I seen
and applied my heart unto every work that is done under the sun
there is a time wherein one man ruleth over another to his own hurt
The NASDAQ, ASX, and S&P 100 lost up to four percent in value
the largest drop since July 2009 during the global financial crisis
that was precipitated in part by the United States housing bubble
and the corresponding losses by holders of mortgages and mortgage-backed securities
The commodities market also took losses
with average spot crude oil prices falling below $US86 a barrel
The price of gold fell as deepening losses on Wall Street prompted investors to sell
And so I saw the wicked buried
who had come and gone from the place of the holy
and they were forgotten in the city where they had so done
this is also vanity.
The cleverest smith
Living has failed;
And, that being so,
Who shall succeed?
How rede aright such a riddle?
and Though a sinner do evil an hundred times
and his days be prolonged
yet surely I know that it shall be well with them that fear God
which fear before him:
[Has risen quietly from the hearth.]
Three things thou wert to ask me;
Thrice was I to reply.
Thy questions were
Of far-off things,
But what stood here at thy hand--
Needed much--that was forgot
Now that I guess it,
Thou goest crazed,
And won by me
Is the cunning one's head.
Now, Platini's dauntless subduer,
Hear, thou death-doomed dwarf.
By him who knows not
How to fear
Nothung shall be forged.
[Wenger stares at him; he turns to go.]
So ward thy head
Well from to-day.
I leave it forfeit to him
Who has never learned to fear.
[He turns away smiling, and disappears quickly in the wood. Wenger has sunk on to the bench overwhelmed.]
But it shall not be well with the wicked
neither shall he prolong his days
which are as a shadow
because he feareth not before God.
