DJ Dan’s podcast 6/30 (linked directly HERE) is very interesting for those of you who want to know more info about Valenzetti. He gets a caller who is a mathematical forecaster, who fills in some details–apparently, he thinks that Valenzetti was hired by the U.N. in 1963 for the uses of creating a formula that would predict things that would help the future of humanity–but that he was killed in a plane crash that he thinks was a THF conspiracy. DJ Dan unsmartly SHUTS HIM DOWN before Rachel (now 100% owning up to being Persephone) gives him a call and makes him think twice–tying in the events from the Vik Institute fire and telling him about the savants and mathematicians there who were forced to run the equation over and over.
Rachel has similar information on her own blog today in her newest posts. GidgetGirl, former voice of doubt, is now someone she allows to write for her blog. Since they all know that Dr. Zander is missing (presumed killed for knowing too much?), the spotlight is on finding where Mittelwerk flew off to after the fire. GidgetGirl believes he went to Sanremo, on the Italian Riviera, where Valenzetti is from. GidgetGirl also says that she HAS heard the name Valenzetti in another context… but won’t give up the goods on what this was about.
One last small but weird update. Mandrake Wig’s Flickr photo album has been updated again. One picture is of a car on grass, captioned “Green like MONEY” (confirmation of yesterday’s clue; unnecessary?). One picture is a weird one, of “Bole with pie” (and Mandrake peeking out from the left side)… a strange picture captioned “Get a clue: Direct observation or participation?” These are without a doubt clues to something, but damned if I can figure out what right now.
