17. I just wondered if THAT was the reason so many people GASPED...
... when he said that.

I always thought the audience reaction was on account of the comment's being silly and weak. The double entendre never occurred to me because I'm so sheltered and unspoiled! O8)

3. And from here
http://www.kabalarians.com/cfm/DisplayNameAnalysis.cfm

Although the name Keith causes an active mind and a restless urge to explore new ideas, we emphasize that it causes an unscrupulous, materialistic approach that frustrates higher humanitarian qualities. This name, when combined with the last name, can frustrate happiness, contentment, and success, as well as cause health weaknesses in the solar plexus and reproductive organs.

The name of Keith creates a very aggressive and independent nature, one with big ambitions, giving you original, progressive, large-scale ideas, salesmanship and promotional ability as well as the excellent business judgment which enables you to gain the financial accumulation to which you feel entitled. You have a versatile, restless nature, and could do any job well, although you would not like to do menial tasks. You are seldom satisfied and are always seeking something new.

4. Hey, CC! ...
Edited on Sun Mar-27-05 01:40 AM by WhirlyGirl
This website is a real blast from the past! I remember it from when I first started exploring the Internet(s) -- staying up all night and linking... and linking... and linking... and linking... LOL! I guess I thought there'd eventually be an end to the links, but there never was!

What you provided is an example of the Kabalarian philosophy of name analysis, part of which I reproduce here, from their website:

- - -
The Hidden Power of a Name -- Mind and thought have their origin in an abstract plane of conscious intelligence, which comes into manifest form through the symbols of language. The brain is not the source of the mind, but merely the physical instrument of the mind. When name is attached to an individual, certain specific forces of conscious intelligence are combined. They constitute the nucleus of the mind. . . .

The Mathematical Principle -- Languages, alphabets, and calendars are creations of mind that exist only in mind and are a part of mind. Their logic depends on consistency of their form and structure. An alphabet is a set of symbols representing the sounds of the language arranged in a definite order; a calendar is a consistent ordering of days, months, and years.
The Kabalarian Philosophy contains the knowledge of the Mathematical Principle, which demonstrates the existence of nine basic forces of conscious intelligence that manifest in a natural sequence and operate through language and time, through name and the date of birth, to determine the mind, the pattern of thinking, and the life experiences of the individual.

Name Analysis -- The Society of Kabalarians (a registered non-profit society) draws on over 70 years of research and experience in providing name analyses, which offer invaluable benefit to people in understanding their strengths and weaknesses both mentally and physically. The Mathematical Principle can be used to make recommendations for a change of name to a balanced name, which offsets the weaknesses of the old name, and tunes the mind to the true inner potential determined from one's date of birth. With a balanced name and understanding of the inner potential, everyone can make positive, constructive changes to achieve better health, success, harmonious personal relations, and a state of overall well-being.
- - -

So they're cautioning us that the letters KEITH need to be combined with OLBERMANN and his birth date, and that combination subjected to numerological analysis, in order to arrive at a prediction for Keith's success with that name. They might even recommend that he CHANGE it!

Sounds like a groovy parlor game. Almost as much fun as being Myers-Briggsed! :-)

I totally buy the idea of names influencing us, by the way -- and not just because of the associations other people might have with our names because they hated their aunt Whirly or adored their sister CC.

For me, names actually have COLORS, and I can see where that could make a difference with other people who can see them too. The name Linda is bright sunshine yellow. My husband's name is reddish brown. Mine is light blue. Keith is -- silver, I think.

And then there's the sound quality, which is a vibration, which also affects people's nervous systems. When you read the following article, you can see that Keith is happy he didn't get shortchanged in this department:

IS YOUR NAME SEXY?
An MIT study claims there's a science to good names
by Keith Olbermann
Jewish World Review
August 18, 2004 / 1 Elul, 5764

Expectant parents agonize over it -- what to name junior.
Well, here's a hint: Naming him after great grandpa Tucker may lead to playground ridicule and occasional beatings, but give it a few years: The chicks will dig it. Men with short vowel names, such as "Tucker," "Bill" or "Keith," are perceived as sexier by the ladies. Don't take my word on it. In fact, don't take my experience on it. Listen to the source -- the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

Amy Perfors, who is a researcher and linguist at MIT, posted picture of 24 friends of both genders on the Web site "HotorNot.com." She included first names and had people rate their appeal. She played mix and match with the names and pictures, so she could be confident people were responding to the names, not the photos.

For men, hard names rated well, front vowels, vowels you make with the front of your mouth, Matt, for instance. The back of the vowel names like "George" and "Paul"? Not as sexy. For women, it's the reverse. Names with longer vowels, vowels you make in the back of your mouth, this research concludes, like Sofia or Laura, were considered dreamiest. Nicole or Hanna, forget it.

Lynn Snowden Picket, a journalist and author whose work has appeared in "Esquire," "Rolling Stone" and "Vogue," thinks there is no truth to this science. . . http://www.jewishworldreview.com/0804/olbermann1.asp

6. gk, I would've loved to have been named Susan A., tho!
"Susan Antigone" would be so cool!

Your comment raises an interesting point: the Kabalarians don't mention MIDDLE names in their into. How does that aspect figure in? What about people of Spanish descent, many of whom have tons of middle names?-- seems to me names like that could keep their calculators clicking late into the night!

Btw, I think every child should have one practical and one romantic name, because you never know who your child is going to grow up to be.

I hate having two PRACTICAL names. :-(

7. you mean your name isn't "Whirly"? :-) :-)
so do they count names you take after birth, e.g., what if you choose to change your name? What about your confirmation name? What if you go into the Witness Protection Program? }(

Oops, gotta go. I was only ducking in for a moment while the rolls were rising. (And I'm still glad not to be going through life as Tiggy Sue!)

8. "Tigger" Sue might have suited you, tho!
Back to the Kabalarians: what about women changing their names after marriage -- some even hyphenating their surnames and their husband's?

I'm sure they have it all worked out somewhere. :-)

9. OK, I thought "what the hell - let's see what they've got on me."
And here's what I got:

Description of Your First Name of: Ruth
Although the name Ruth creates the urge to be self-expressive and happy, it does limit your versatility and scope, tuning you to technical details. This name, when combined with the last name, can frustrate happiness, contentment, and success, as well as cause health weaknesses in the liver, bloodstream, and elimination system.

Your name of Ruth has given you a desire for self-expression and for positions that allow contact with people, free from the restrictions and monotony into which you are often drawn. Although you desire to be spontaneous and natural, you are often drawn into technical and methodical lines of endeavour and the practical aspects of life. You are friendly by nature, but you cannot enjoy complete ease in association because of a difficulty in expressing yourself.


*********

Two questions:
1. Are they telling me that my name is full of shit?

2. Does this not also imply that I am anal-retentive??

And seriously, folks, do you really think that I have a problem with self-expression?????

10. LOL! No, Rev, you have NO problem w/ self-expression...
... and we are the fortunate beneficiaries of that fact!

My mom's name is Ruth -- and it doesn't describe her, either... but you have to add your last name & birthdate to get the whole picture, remember...

That being the case, I don't know why they even bother to provide the first name analysis -- unless it's just to get readers intrigued. :shrug:

26. oh, I don't think I'll be plonking down that $27 myself
considering that my surname doesn't mean jack... although I didn't know it until I was in my 20's. True story: one of my sisters and her new husband is having dinner with my parents. Husband is trying to make small talk, says, "X, that's a Y name. Ever trace your roots?" Dad, with his usual deadpan delivery, says, "Why bother? It's an assumed name." Turns out his grandfather killed a man in a fight, left town to avoid vengeful relatives, and changed his name. Kind of hard to get the conversation re-started after that little revelation... }(

11. More research...
Another site has a slightly different take on the name's origin's,
and sharpens the reference to "wood" a bit.

Name: KEITH
Gender: Male
Origin: Celtic; Welsh
Meaning: wood, wind; wood-dweller

Description of Your First Name of: Sparky
Although the name Sparky creates the urge to be creative and original, we point out that it causes an emotional intensity and a dominating nature that is hard to control. This name, when combined with the last name, can frustrate happiness, contentment, and success, as well as cause health weaknesses in the nervous system, and tension or accidents to the head.

The first name of Sparky creates an intense personal nature. Your feelings and emotional desires are strong and consequently you are an individual, determined, strong-willed person. Your creative nature and ambition drive you to pursue success to the extent that you jeopardize your personal well-being. There is a tendency for you to dominate others. You are too certain of yourself, and you are not open to the views of others or responsive to their desires or needs. Also, this name does not incorporate qualities that enable you to be diplomatic and to compromise.



Can't say that I disagree with the first part. :evilgrin:

edit/just for the record:
Sorry, but the name of: Bleever (M) is not yet part of our database.

18. "Accidents to the head" LOL!
I was under the impression a major accident to the head was a requirement for joining this group -- one which doesn't impair either your typing or your ability to judge ties. ;-)

Could there be those among us who weren't dropped on their heads when small?

Maybe we'll have one for you sometime. Although I'm not sure what we'd put in the eggs... maybe KOEB thongs?

My friend Mary came over for Easter dinner and brought a letter that was sent to one of her cats. Apparently Jericho (who's the top cat now that Battlecat has passed on) has "qualified") to be in some sort of "Who's Who" for Business Executives and all he needs to do is fill out a short information form about the nature of his business and his expected growth. She's considering filling it out. She figures that the nature of his business is processing cat food, it's a local business (usually the upstairs cat box), that it's expanding (his ass is definitely getting wider), and that he should experience revenue growth in the future if she buys more expensive cat food...

44. Cats know bullshit when they hear it. And they definitely understand
English. Battlecat had feline urological syndrome and it got so severe that he had to have a kitty-cat sex-change operation. Some months after the surgery, I saw him trying to mount one of the female cats who was clearly annoyed and I told him, "Battle, you don't even have anything left to pretend with," and he gave me the dirtiest look. You'd think those little furry faces couldn't be that expressive, but no...

47. which is pretty much what happens to almost any thread
the KOEB touches. I'm still trying to figure out how/why we had to get beefcake cooties all over a perfectly nice candid photo of KO at work. (Yeah, I'm a sucker for candid shots. I always like 'em better than posed photos. All the damned photos I had to endure for my wedding and my favorite was a 3-second click of me with the soloist when we realized no one had taken a picture of the two of us.)

51. But -- where...
... do the cooties come in?

(Is this a ref. to some afterhours KOEB discussion I hadn't read? ;-))

52. no, you haven't missed a KOEB discussion. It's just the
micron-by-micron dissection of the photo and Keef, and which parts are most appealing, rather like a magazine centerfold, sort of gets "cooties" on the picture in my mind. I believe the term "Keefcake" has been bandied about.

53. Yeah, it's like maybe a little "too much" appreciation.
That's such a cute photo in other ways...
KO looks sort of Harry Potterish in those oversized frames.

Oooooooooo! Here come the SportsCenter palpitations <thumpthumpthump-thumpthumpthump> :loveya:

55. I think I understand it now...
it kind of puzzled me before, because usually with beefcake/cheesecake photos, the subject is trying to peddle their wares and it's not clear that Keith even knows his picture is picture is being taken. Before, I wondered if the appeal was something along the lines of we're so used to seeing him in a suit that seeing him in other clothing is a novelty, but even that seemed strange to me. I live in a semi-tropical climate, and I see more male pulchritude (can pulchritude be masculine?) than that on a daily basis, nine months of the year. Swooning over that photo is sort of like someone writing an article in the paper because KO wore shorts in the press box at a ball game. Big deal, I see men in shorts at the Astros games all the time. Heck, you see men in shorts pretty much everywhere in Houston except church and the fanciest of restaurants, and there are probably a couple of laid-back churches in town I haven't been to.

So I've decided it must be that folks are imagining that KO is reading their detailed memorandum on "The Ten Best Ways to Pleasure Me" prior to an assignation and they appreciate his attentiveness? :evilgrin:

56. I think you had it right, further up your post (can I say "further up...
... your post"?)

It's the novelty of the clothing plus his seeming obliviousness to those looking on (I wouldn't count on it, but it's part of the composition) which fairly invites voyeurism.

Altho the group seems to be focused further down, I like the open shirt and bare arms.
As I said before -- with Keith, I think we have a right to bare arms. :loveya:

57. "further up... my post"?? Cheese, I don't know how you
broke into Whirly's account but I can see that you've earned the spanking you'll be getting tonight!!

Surely our Whirly would never say such a thing. :evilgrin:

As for me, I think I'm going to avoid using "Keith", "right to", and "bare" in the same sentence (not necessarily in that order), if at all possible, because I am a very good girl, nothing at all like the wicked Reverend. O8)

60. well... yes
but not at noon (hmm... nice idea, though) and we're spreading out the official celebrating -- a play this Saturday, a nice dinner out next Saturday. Unofficial celebrations at home in between. :smoke:
