Is Being The 44th President A Lucky Thing?

Breaking news: Yahoo News is reporting that an Indonesian numerologist is predicting good fortune for Barack Obama, despite Obama being the 44th President and the number 44 being assosiated with death in Chinese culture:

In Mandarin the words for four and death are the same but numbers expert Udin, also a feng shui master of 20 years, said it was auspicious to be the 44th president.

“Talking about his position as the 44th American president, it is actually a good number according to Chinese numerology because four plus four equals eight, and eight is a lucky number,” he was quoted as saying.

Four in China is like 13 in Western countries. Many Chinese buildings will not have a fourth floor or any other storey featuring a number four.

Despite this, Udin foretold greatness for Obama’s presidency.

“My vision tells me that 2009 is a lucky year for Obama because he is 47 and in numerology, it’s a good time to do something great until 49, and obviously that is a good sign for the country he is leading,” he said.

Obviously.

As I always say, if you can’t trust an obscure Indonesian numerologist that interprets mystic Chinese superstitions about the President of the United States, his fortunes, and the fortunes of the country he is leading, then who can you trust?

Exactly.

I like to dabble in numerology from time to time, and this article got me thinking about the whole 44 and what it represents. My findings are slightly different than the obscure Indonesian numerologist, but likely they are just as accurate. Let’s have a boo at what The Mayor came up with.

44 is really just 4 + 4. As everyone knows, 4 + 4 = 8. An 8 and an 8 mean nothing by itself, but the 8th letter of the alphabet is an H, and two H’s together is HH, which means Heil Hitler in neo-Nazi circles. I think it’s safe to say that Obama is actually Hitler.

If we twist it the other way, a 4 is actually just 2 + 2. The second letter of the alphabet is a B…as in *Barack*…as in *Barry*. Wow, that’s the President’s name.

The words Forty four also sound eerily similar to the ancient Inheriwiki phrase “Froto For”, meaning, *the red commie devil that will one day destroy the world through destructive economic policies.*

This is why I don’t study numerology very much any more, what I end up learning usually scares the crap out of me.

Here is the Yahoo *News* article

    Oh man, how I laughed. So, are we to call Barry, “Froto For” from this point forward?

    Y’know,Sisyphus, you draw a ’stache under his nose, and by God, you may have somethin’ there!

    My wife was a realtor years ago, and had a client who was a professional numerologist. She never did sell him a house, as the ones with the right features, and the right numbers, never coincided.

    He was the classic impossible client, and ended up renting.

    I checked with my consultant on asian affairs and culture.

    Feng shui is Mandarin for Horse Pucks.

    Now if you tried to make the case that All the Obamasteria was pure HP then I am with you.
