The date of 6/8 means something else to me that I can't remember. I still don't actually remember any of this, but I am thinking that while the other pilots made it back to base on the same day, I did not. They either picked me up on 6/8/81 or I managed to make it back to base that next day on my own. That may also be a reason why the terrorists attempted to attack the USS The Sullivans DDG-68 on 1/3/2000. I believe they chose that ship specifically for the '68.'
Investigation revealed that the USS Cole bombing followed an unsuccessful attempt on January 3, 2000, to bomb another U.S. Navy ship, the USS The Sullivans. In this earlier incident, the boat sank before the explosives could be detonated; however, the boat and the explosives were salvaged. The boat was then refitted and the explosives were tested and reused in the USS Cole attack.
It is my opinion that the organizers of the long-course triathlon wanted to schedule that inaugural triathlon for 6/7/02 but that day was a Friday so they chose 6/8 instead because it was a Saturday. I heard about the new triathlon in Utah a year earlier, back in summer 2001. I had just completed a long-distance bicycling course of 200-miles in one day and decided that I was ready to train for and complete a long-distance triathlon. If they announced the 6/8/02 triathlon in the summer of 2001, they were probably planning it for some time before that. All this has been going on for almost a decade and I have been oblivious to it until a few months ago.
I believe the 6/8/02 race in Utah was planned specifically because I had been part of the pre-emptive strike on Iraq on 6/7/81. The race was part of some Microsoft plan to hijack that historical event in order to gain a competitive advantage for Microsoft. I consider the following events to reflect Microsoft's plans, which was in progress as early as 1999, but probably as far back as 1996, following a 6-month temporary job I had with them in the Charlotte office. As I wrote earlier, I do not believe it is a coincidence that Microsoft gave me a starting salary on December 7, 1998, of $53,000. I believe they did that because I was part of the failed rescue attempt in 1980 of the 53 hostages in Iran. I don't remember being there in 1980, but I believe that I was part of the U.S. team that went into Iran.
I believe also that Microsoft has been trying to exact revenge on the U.S. government. Their motivation is that if anybody points out Microsoft's criminal activities, Microsoft is going to make their life a living hell.
I do not believe it is a coincidence that Microsoft bought the makers of the game "Halo" just after the judgment in the antitrust lawsuit. It is part of their plan to hijack historical events to give them a competitive advantage.
