Yeah, that'll hold up in court. Must admit it is a little weird that it keeps coming up... maybe somebody at work is messing with him?

By accepting W-2 form 666 you sell the IRS to the devil.

That is farking pathetic. He's either looking to get fired or somebody in payroll is messing with him.

At the rental car company where I used to work, I got an email from one of my managers asking if we could get rid of space #666. It took me several days to realize he was serious. No, I'm not re-striping the lot because some sad, pathetic customer didn't want the car from space #666. IT'S SATAN'S BUICK!!

So, you should file it with the IRS. They will know what to do with the Satanic number.

//File it in the ninth circle, they will.

Can we have one week without you making a spectacle of yourself. Judges snorting hydros sold by prostitutes, state politicians saying AIDs came from monkey buttsex, Bob Corker existing...

I hate this place sometimes...

I had a client who had three consecutive sixes in his Social Security number. He had his number officially changed. His new number contained three consecutive nines. I'm pretty sure someone at the Social Security Administration had a sense of humorous and was farking with him.

My Social Security number has five 6s, three of them in a row.

There is little to no excuse for this level of superstitious ignorance. He should either be killed, along with any descendants, or else admit that this is a mentally deranged ploy of some kind.

I realize this isn't the point of the story but the 666 thing isn't even in the Bible, is it? That's what I heard anyway.

Mugato: I realize this isn't the point of the story but the 666 thing isn't even in the Bible, is it? That's what I heard anyway.


Sure it is. Revelation 13:15-18:

And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.16And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:17and that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.18Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number  is Six hundred threescore  and six.

You can think it's weird, but it's definitely in there.

Confabulat: When I was a kid, our phone number ended in -6668. My mom called and had it changed, much to my chagrin.


When I was working for a cellphone company I got a call from someone who wanted to change their number to something easy to remember. The process was blind luck and you only got so many changes before we started charging for each change. I managed to get a really easy-to-remember number for him after only a couple tries. Of course the first 3 numbers were 666. When I asked him if that one was good he was like "NO! Change it!!!". He ended up with a number that was harder to remember than his initial one.

People are stupid.

I had to RTFA just to see what amazing career he walked away from over this.

Even before I clicked I was pretty sure it wasn't going to be "Chief of Neurosurgery at Vanderbilt University Hospital" or "Physics Professor at the University of Tennessee."
 
2013-02-07 03:29:27 AM  
What makes this story strange isn't the guy quitting over a 666.  It is that he is quitting over it, not attacking his employer and saying he has no interest in suing or getting his job back.  Topped off by an employer saying he understands and will replace the offending W-2 and would love to hire the guy back.

Either he is one hell of an employee or this sue-happy, blame everyone world that I love is falling apart.

As stupid as this is - many buildings don't have a thirteenth floor.  Just give the weird guy who does an OK job a different number and quit making news over it.  Hell - Peyton Manning stole a senile old dude's number in Denver while claiming sainthood - Now that is the devil's work!

The whole thing is silly, especially when one finds out that some of the earliest MSS of Revelation have 616 instead of 666.

FTA:
During his first day on the job in April 2011, Slonopas was supposed to be assigned the number 668 to use when he clocked in. But the human resources department gave him the wrong number - 666 - instead.

In July 2011, the company changed time clock systems, and once again Slonopas got 666

My previous employer's tax board id ended with 666.  It didn't bother me because I already knew the company resided in the fourth circle of Hell, occasionally dropping down to the Ninth circle.

If you kept getting 666 assigned to you in life despite your best efforts, maybe you should just shut up and focus on your duties as the anti-Christ, already.
 
2013-02-07 03:45:14 AM  
Wasn't the number 666 (or 616) the numerological equivalent of the name of emperor Nero? Remembered for his fond love of christians :D Which he of course started displaying after his family got slaughter by the christian sect.

If the number keeps popping up, I don't think the problem is so much that Satan is trying to get a hold of him, but that He is trying to tell him He already has.

I went to get lunch at a Long John Silver's a long time ago, and the guy in front of me was told his order cost $6.66. He refused to pay it and insisted on changing his order to avoid falling to the clutches of Satan.

It's somehow more annoying that even if you believe that the prophecy in question really is a message from God, it's not at all certain that the number in question is actually 666.
 
2013-02-07 03:49:31 AM  

Rufus Lee King: Look, it's quite simple to anyone who understands numerology: 6+6+6=18. 1+8=9. "Number 9", when spoken backwards, says "Turn me on, dead man." This is a sign of pure evil.

If you don't believe me, just look at this:


Number 9 spoken in reverse actually sounds something like "Eh-nine rub mon"

But there's more than one version/translation and they don't all give the same number.
