PandaPorn: Aulus: PandaPorn: 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.

The problem with that is that while some would posit the numerical value of the letters (both Greek and Hebrew assign numerical values to the letters of their respective alphabets) can be held to spell out the name of the first Roman emperor to persecute Christians, Caesar Nero, who reigned 37-68 AD, the earliest commentators on Revelation state the text first appeared during the reign of the emperor Domitian (81- to 98 AD), nearly 30 years after the death of Nero.

But where did it appear first? Couldn't it be possible that it started out as an oral tradition before that?


Hehehehe. Oral tradition.

The Bible does have some nifty parts, but most of them were made into movies in the '60s.

The rest is a waste of time until some porn director finally reads the Song of Solomon.

Bob Falfa: 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!!

You aren't missing much. Despite its reputation, it's not a very good book.

It has its faults, but it also has a lot worth paying attention to. It is only the fundamental document of western civilization!


In many ways yes. Norse mythology and Rome have as much, if not more influence when it comes to day to day stuff and ideology. When it comes to murder, mayhem and destruction you go to the Bible and Michael Bay exclusively, though, absolutely.

Aulus: The Greek text:

[18] Ὧδε ἡ σοφία ἐστίν: ὁ ἔχων νοῦν ψηφισάτω τὸν ἀριθμὸν τοῦ θη ρίου, ἀριθμὸς γὰρ ἀνθρώπου ἐστίν: καὶ ὁ ἀριθμὸς αὐτοῦ ἑξακόσιοι ἑξήκοντα ἕξ. or  ἑξακόσιοι ἑκκαίδεκα . (666 or 616, repectively)


Which is funny because my mom lives on the corner of state roads 666 and 616, much to my brother's super-religious wife's ire.

When I worked at a car dealer, I sold a Suburban with a vin that ended in 666. The customer told me he wouldn't of bought it if he had known. I had a good chuckle as he drove off the lot.

Incoming CSB:

When I was maybe 13-14 years old, I was hanging out with my friend in the basement of his house, playing video games or something, and he asks me what time it is.  I stand up and look over the couch to the digital clock sitting on the hearth of a fireplace, and I swear to God, it read 6:66.

I stared at it for about 10 seconds, nervously laughed and asked my friend if saw the same thing.  He was raised catholic, and although he wasn't particulary religious, he respected his parents rules about things like not saying Goddammit and went with them to church every week.  Needless to say, he saw that it was 6:66 O'clock too, and we both got a little freaked out.

Turns out, the clock was slightly broken, and the little digital bar on the lower-left of the center digit was stuck permanently on.  So really, it was 6:56, but because it had a defective display, the loop on that 5 was closed, making it a "6".  We both burst out laughing when we realized what happened.

/Still shocking to see a clock read 6:66.

when i worked customer service for a credit card company, i had a woman call in because her brand new card had 666 in it and wanted a new number.  i told her i couldn't just assign a new number, but i could enter in that her card was lost/stolen and she would get a new card.  she asked if the new card would also have 666 in it and i said it was highly unlikely that it would have that same number combination, but it was possible.  she paused for a minute and said, "oh what the hell, i guess it doesn't matter" and hung up on me.

I had a person complain about page 666 in a manual. I had to renumber 665, 665-1, 667. Do you know how hard that is in MSWord? And since it's up for revision every six months, you can't just plug the fake page number in. There's a separate section just for that page.

Just because someone who saw the manual, guessed it's size and said she didn't want a devil manual in her office. Government employee. Probably will never read it.

The guy may want to reread his Bible. The beast, if I recall correctly, is a former believer. Might be him. Sneak in one night, henna tattoo 666 on the back of his skull and watch the fun start.

CBS:

I was waiting in line to get my license plates when the woman 3 people in front of me complained that she didn't want plates ending with 666.   Apparently that is a common complaint and the clerk just gave her a different set of tags.  When it was my turn I asked if I could have the 666 plates, she said that plates can't be reissued.  WTF?

the whole fear of 666 is this:  people are afraid of a time when they'll only be able to buy or sell things with an ATM card or something like that.

If we're simply talking literature, then it belongs also with the Iliad, the Odyssey, and the Aeneid. For philosophy and criticism, then a number of other Greek and Roman works such as the Republic and Poetics also belong there.

It's actually 616 (per recently re-translated fairy tales), but that doesn't matter.  As soon as he finds out about that, he'll be bombarded with 616 references.  How does he not know that he's in the latest installment of Final Destination?

If you get assigned the number 666 once, well fark them.

If you keep getting assigned the number 666, MAYBE IT'S YOU.

God is trying to tell you something, sir.
 
2013-02-07 08:51:57 AM
Yeah Lou, I don't think the mark applies until the anti-Christ becomes known. You know, like after the whole rapture when Christians will vanish and the world will be turned upside down. People like this are why people think Christians are idiots. Until you got a number stamped on your somewhere and they're killing and imprisioning people around you refuse it I think it's a safe as any other 3 digit number currently.

On one of my highway projects up in the NC mountains, a surveyor came into the main office and flat out refused to go onto a property owner's land for any reason. When asked why, he claimed that the owner was a devil worshiper and if he went onto that property he risked damning his soul for eternity. The surveyor's reason for believing the property owner was a devil worshiper? He had several indian totem poles around his house.

He was eventually shifted onto another project and some less fearful surveyors handled my project.

It's pretty straightforward with a little macro magic, actually.  You should look into it.  Page numbers are actually based on a concept called (I think) entities, which can be displayed inline if you find a setting somewhere called "view entities".  They look like this.

'{PageNumber}'

You would write a macro such as this:

function PageNumberForIdiots(PageNumber as string) as string
    if PageNumber = '666'
        PageNumberForIdiots = '665-1'
    else
        PageNumberForIdios = PageNumber
    end if
end function

And then change the entity to something like this:

'{PageNumberForIdiots(PageNumber)}'

That's basically how it works, however I don't remotely remember the details.

Yeah i've heard 216 is the number based on "6 by 6 by 6" only once but i heard it/ read it

I have it on very VERY good authority that the number of the beast is 10,314,424,798,490,535,546,171,949,056


 (66)6


No, no, the TRUE Number of the Beast is in hexadecimal, of course.
