    I see 2012 and Zion in one, not just 2012.

    There's a "dot," what does that have to do with the numbers 2012?
    The "second 2" is not even shaped like the first. If they're both "2"...?
    Besides the obvious stuff like the one eye they have, or the British flag, the mascot on the left could be gesturing "as above, so below."

    Can you tell what's on the side of the blue one (I can't make it out)?

    It also shapes into 2012, with 2, 0, and the 1 in red and the last number (2) is blue.


    One Love, and PEACE

    i do see the zion ... hmmm ... never saw this image before, though i didn't watch the olympics.

    was this image greatly disseminated throughout the proceedings? ... interesting

    a Brother shared the following image with me, and i don't guess he'll mind me sharing it ...

    it was said that it was on Google's homepage one day during the olympic events

    hurdles-2012-hp.jpg

    it was described by some as a "Black Man running on a watermelon field"

    i didn't see that initially, but after reading what others saw ... i guess i can see it too.

    what yall think?

    Love You!

    :heart:

    Though "Inspire a generation" is the official motto for the London 2012 Olympic Games, inspiring a generation to hate the official logo for the London Olympics wasn't what the International Olympic Committee (IOC) had in mind. In 2007, shortly...

    Dang, that looks just like watermelon.
    That doesn't look like a track in any way.

    I searched "running track" in Google Images and I can't find a track that looks anything like that.

    The dark spots are what really show that it's not a regular track. If it was a regular track, what are those suppose to be?

    That's crazy.

    Others will never stop trying to get next to us the best way or laziest way through sterotypes. It's natural we stay on the mind. Has anyone wondered why queens jubilee was this year? 2012\mayan calender.
