Ach -- Eeee -- Double Hockey Sticks

Okay, really hasn't the real 666 date passed? I mean, wouldn't it have been June 6th in the year of 6 A.D.? Such a fuss over nothing... But nonetheless, the obligatory post about it:

  • Hell, Mich., heats up for 6-6-6 party -- HELL, Mich. - They're planning a hot time in Hell on Tuesday. The day bears the date of 6-6-06, or abbreviated as 666 — a number that carries hellish significance... Nobody is more fired up than John Colone, the town's self-styled mayor and owner of a souvenir shop... "I've got `666' T-shirts and mugs. I'm only ordering 666 (of the items) so once they're gone, that's it," said Colone, also known as Odum Plenty. "Everyone who comes will get a letter of authenticity saying you've celebrated June 6, 2006, in Hell." [Apparently, sometimes Hell really does freeze over. You know, I sure would hate to be the guy who is profiting from the 6-6-6 date. And how would you like to be known as "Odum Plenty"? Isn't that kind of like "Seymore Butts"? Nice...]
  • 666 woman's car-free birthday -- A woman born weighing 6lbs 6oz on 6 June at 0600 BST and is 66 on Tuesday on 6/6/6, is refusing to drive on her birthday to help avoid accidents. [Not that I'm superstitious, but has anyone ever wondered if the devil is actually a female living in Great Britain?]
  • Tomorrow is 6-6-6. Scared? -- There's a devilishly odd nexus of theology, mathematics and commercialism on the sixth day of the sixth month of the sixth year. OK, it's just the sixth year of this millennium, but insisting on calling it 2006 takes the devil-may-care fun out of calendar-gazing. [I'm not particularly excited about the whole 3 sixes thing (go here to give your opinion on the matter), but I don't think it has any deeper meaning like the Apocolypse. Please... Do we not have better things to worry about, like when my hometown will finally get a freaking Starbucks?]
  • Bedeviled by 6/6/6? Tomorrow will tell -- Enjoy your Monday. Because tomorrow, the world could end. [We're all gonna die, we're all gonna die!!! Aaaaaargh!!! Something else to freak us the fuck out!!!!!]
  • 6-6-6: A devil of a day ahead? Attention shoppers: Armageddon, tomorrow's special, can be found on aisle three in the book section. Or at the multiplex. Or coming soon to an arena near you. Or on the Internet. [Ha, ha, ha! The joke's really on us, huh?]
  • Lioness in zoo kills man who invoked God -- KIEV (Reuters) - A man shouting that God would keep him safe was mauled to death by a lioness in Kiev zoo after he crept into the animal's enclosure, a zoo official said on Monday... "The man shouted 'God will save me, if he exists', lowered himself by a rope into the enclosure, took his shoes off and went up to the lions," the official said... "A lioness went straight for him, knocked him down and severed his carotid artery." [I just threw this one in for good measure b/c it's so ridiculous. What a dumbass. See what questioning if God really exists gets you? Thank heavens I don't need a lion to fail to maul me to death to know that God does exist...]
