i got out my sherlock holmes hat for this one

I was at the Walmart in my po-dunk Tennessee town, and I just happened to stumble across this:

And I was like, hey, cool, cause ya know, Sherlock.  Then I flip it over and

this beautiful bastard.  So, yeah I spent US $13.99 and bought it (I would have spent $20 tbh)  But I didn’t crack it open until I got home and

March 8.  Hmmm, I thought.  Let me get my tin foil hat out.  

20/20= 40?  maybe I’m reaching…But then

Um 27?  These numbers seem unnecessary to these sentences or am I

seeing things things that aren’t there…  [pictured above: ACD posing for “spirit photography” in 1922]  

Then an article about ACD and his unlikely friendship with Houdini.  They met when Doyle read his book, then went and saw him perform in New York where he made an ELEPHANT disappear, and ESCAPED FROM CHAINS UNDERWATER.

*cough cough* Mark and Darren Brown *cough cough*

So anyway, I may just have a blue car and then am seeing blue cars everywhere, or this magazine (which the earliest date I can see where it hit the stands was feb 8, 2017).  New key? BONUS:

meta meta meta meta meta canon that ACD was King of All Meta.  This magazine has condensed so much SH fun facts (a whole  big piece about about ACD killing off SH) and it makes me happy to have more info I can obsess about.

I’ll tag some tjlc blogs that I fangirl over:

Lets be honest

In The Final Problem, once Victor turns his head to face the camera, I bet 100% that all of us immediately thought: “John”.
FOR JUST ONE MILLISECOND, I GOT SO EXCITED BECAUSE I THOUGHT VICTOR WAS JOHN.
ALSO, WHY WOULD THEY PICK A LITTLE BOY WITH SUCH AN UNCANNY RESEMBLANCE TO JOHN???!
oh sweet lord I’m going out of my mind again.
There is SO much evidence towards the secret special, yet I feel this little dot of doubt.
GOD PLEASE LET IT HAPPEN.

A Titan IIIC launches while a Saturn V stands sentry. If you look closely, you’ll notice that atop the Titan is a Gemini capsule! That’s right, this is the Manned Orbital Laboratory test launch, which took place on November 3rd of 1966. Judging by that date, we can also conclude that the Saturn V pictured was SA-501, which rolled out of the Vehicle Assembly Building on August 26 of the same year. SA-501 was better known as Apollo 4, the first test flight of the Saturn V. What a historic pair of spacecraft!
