47 TRILLIONS!?

The murders will only serve to make it a stronger message since it has victims that lost their life.

The thing about words is that meanings can twist just like a snake, and if you want to find snakes look for them behind words that have changed their meaning.

No one ever said elves are nice.
Elves are bad.

That's a lot of money. And a rather interesting coincidence.

It's a quantity high enough that it would wipe out most of every nations debts probably all of them.

It's enough money to end world hunger.

If we divided this money with everyone on earth it would amount to 6668 dollars per person.

Only this emoticon can express my bewilderment

But why did they kill the children? It's only helping the Internet to spread this.

Probably because, if they actually did have the kids killed, it's to send a message.

While I think it's an interesting coincidence, there's nothing to connect the two events other than timing and the human brains love of finding patterns (even where no patterns exist).

The Alliance's three rules on faction conflict:
1) You can't win.
2) You can't break even.
3) You can't leave the game.

CNBC removed the article shortly after the deaths.

That makes two of us.

The Inquisitr still has the original article up:

http://www.inquisitr.com/376471/cnbc...-in-manhattan/

Yeah, these coincidences are kinda scary. =/

Apparently, it's enough to pay the national debt three times over.

Shit, man. I read about the kids getting murdered (it was a local New York story for a while), but I had no idea it was a CNBC executive's kids or... that. Yowza.

I don't really understand the first article, what exactly is happening with the money? What is going on?



And secondly, poor children. They never deserved such a horrible fate.....

Those poor kids, hope their families are alright.


Seriously though, is it even possible that much money was stolen?
