I just thought this eerie enough...

I heard yesterday on the Canadian TV that the recent crash of the Swiss Air Flight 111 is associated with many treasures on board of the plane that went down to the bottom. Not only that the plane crashes near Halifax and somewhat near the Titanic wreck, but now we find out that the plane carried important quantities of gold, silver, a few pounds of diamonds, money etc. If this was not enough, there was also an expensive painting on board. Who was the author? Well, does "something Picasso" ring a bell? The painting represented a male portrait with bulging eyes, scared or something and the former is valued at 1.5 million dollars. "There is truth in it but no logic." The painitng was probably destroyed by the explosion and/or the salty water. I don't even want to know the list of the passengers, I just don't want to freak out recognizing some names...

"Sleep sound young Rose for I have built you a strong plane. It's all the lifeboat you need." Hmmm...

I had similar thoughts. Halifax has been called "The City of Sorrows" due to its proximity to disasters (including the Great Halifax Explosion of 1917):

At 9:05 on the 6th December 1917, a munition ship exploded in Halifax harbour, (Nova Scotia, Canada). This explosion was so vast that it killed over 2,000 people and completely flattened two square kilometres of northern Halifax. This was the greatest explosion of the Great war, and the largest man-made explosion until the dropping of the bomb at Hiroshima in 1945.

Wow, I never knew about this explosion. Maybe Armageddon is in Halifax and not Israel. Just a weird thought.

I got today my widescreen tapes from reel.com and watched the first 25 minutes of the movie. I freaked out when I realized that one of the Picasso painting in Rose's room is very similar with the one that perished with this Swiss Air Flight 111. Can someone tell me it's not the same painting? Please, please?
