Happy Mark Of The Beast Day!

The numerological superstitious will note that today is 6/6/06 – and 666 is the Biblical number for the “mark of the beast”, a reference from the Book of Revelations that supposedly designates the Antichrist. Wikipedia has more on the significance of the number. Some of theorized that the author of Revelations, John of Patmos mistook the End of Days for the results of today’s match between the Anaheim Angels and the Tampa Bay Devil Rays.

Some other facts about everyone’s number of pure evil:

  • Windows Vista contains 666,666,666 lines of code, most of which is not C code at all, but an ancient form of Sumerian. Microsoft’s engineering team had to develop a source control system based on protective spells found in the ruins of the Ziggurat of Ur.
  • Ann Coulter’s new book, Godless, was written on the skins of 666 flayed puppies, and inked with their blood.
  • If the price for your lunch on a first date comes out to $6.66 — RUN! (And yes, this really did happen to me, and yes, I should have taken that as a sign.)
  • Hell may be a town in Michigan, but it is not in fact the closest to Hell one can find on Earth. That honor goes to Pierre, South Dakota.
  • The script for the movie Crossroads (the cinematic debut of Britney Spears) was actually based on the ancient tome called the Necronomicon ex mortis, written in the year 666 by an insane Arab alchemist named Abu Alhazared. During filming the Director of Photography was consumed alive by invisible demons in front of a crowd of screaming onlookers.
  • Rob Zombie was a production assistant on Pee-Wee’s Playhouse. (OK, so that’s actually true.)
  • If you listen to Meat Loaf’s Bat Out of Hell backwards, you have way too much time on your hands.

  1. With discussion of gay marriage prohibitions and estate tax repeals dominating Congress, who needs to go see “The Omen” to watch the work of Satan on full display.

  2. Considering how Republican Pierre, SD, is, I’ll concur with your assessment of it as hell. Just from a standpoint of sheer slum ugliness, however, the Upper Midwest’s easy winner of the “hell on Earth” honor is Waterloo, Iowa.

  3. It’s actually Abdul Alhazared, it’s the ‘white’ Necronomicon(commonest color of the cover) and they were shoggoths, not demons, that ate the DP.

    And, don’t you find it interesting the Mark thinks a tax repeal is satanically evil?
