The Fallen One - Origins of Lt Blak

The Fallen One by Lt Blak

I was there at the first Deception.
The very first thought of Pride...
I saw him fall!
and who chose him, heavens cast them out all.
But I had hope!
I made a promise to bring him back...
Thus I became a Watcher for my own
A "Black Angel" as I was known.
This is strange the story of a lost Soul...
An unlikely hero...
who became a "Black Angel" for all.
This is the journey of Lt Blak, The Legend.

Activate Do not Disturb? Why?

Do-Not-Disturb-Messages-Lt-Blak

This SMS says!
"Amitabh Bachchan ke sath ek haseen shaam bitane ka mauka aur poore 7 Lakh ke inaam Dial *567*4#"
"To spend a wonderful evening with Amitabh Bachchan and to get 7 Lakhs worth reward, Dial *567*4#"


They call it Telemarketing SMS's or Unsolicited Commercial Calls
I am Lt Blak, I believe in sharing the facts...
I want you all to know, What is Wrong and What is Right!
I get these SMS's almost everyday, sometimes irritates the shit out of me!
How does my Phone number leak out into their Phonebooks?
Why do they leak our numbers?
Why do I have to fill in complicated forms & my crucial details, just to avoid these calls or SMS's?
What about my privacy? Do they really value my Privacy?


Value-my-Privacy-Lt-Blak

This is what they say about Privacy!
I value my privacy. And so does Xxxxfone.
Xxxxfone respects my privacy and takes great care to protect my number and personal details.
Sometimes they might try to get in touch to let me know about a recommended tariff,
a new offer or an innovative service that may be of interest to me.
But I have the option to avoid unwanted telemarketing calls...
by registering my Xxxxfone mobile phone number in the NDNC (National Do Not Call) registry.

A Guerrilla Fighter
A guerrilla fighter for Tupamaros (a "Robinhood" organization that stole from the rich and gave to the poor) he was imprisoned twice,
kept in horrible conditions, escaped once, and was only apprehended after being shot six times by the police.
He was released fourteen years later when a constitutional democracy was restored.

Presidential Palace, House and car
Although this beautiful palace with 42 staff members is available to him he instead lives on a small farm a few minutes from the capital.
He drives a 1987 Volkswagen Beetle, and is a part time farmer, growing flower for sale at nearby markets.
He lives in a small house with his wife, who was also imprisoned guerrilla figher and member of Tupamaros, who is now a Uruguayan senator.

For those who came in late

The Legend of The Lt Blak begins 400 years ago when the sole survivor of a pirate raid was washed up on a remote beach. Friendly pygmies found him and nursed him back to health.

One day while walking on the beach, the survivor found a dead pirate, dressed in his father's clothes. On the skull of his father's murderer, he swore an oath by firelight as the pygmies watched. "I swear to devote my life to the destruction of piracy, greed, cruelty and injustice, and my sons and their sons will follow me."

This was the Oath of the Skull that he and his descendants would live by. In time, the pygmies led him to the centre of the jungle where he found a large cave with many rocky chambers. The mouth of the cave, a natural formation created by the water and wind of centuries, was curiously like a skull. This skull formation reminded him of an altar he saw in the camp of the 'giant' natives (giant to the pygmies, that is!), when he aided in the pygmies' revolt. It gave him an idea which he later put into practice, and held onto as his 'trademark'.

This Skull Cave became his home. He and the sons who followed became known as the nemesis of pirates everywhere.

He is the mysterious man whose face no-one ever saw, whose name no-one knew. Natives of the unknown Jungle, thinking that all Lt Blaks are the same as the first, say he is immortal, a man who cannot die. Thus, twenty generations of Lt Blaks lived, fought and died, usually violently as they followed their oath. Now, we come to the present...

Lt Blak - the seventh.
