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?
Bob Falfa: IT'S SATAN'S BUICK!!
ZAZ: i used to live in a place where the telephone exchange was 666.Me too. Somerville, Mass.
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!!

Confabulat: oh crap that's my PIN

Aulus: The Greek text: 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)

Harry Freakstorm: 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.

Farking Canuck: This idiot is voluntarily leaving the workforce and leaving a spot for a more intelligent people to find work.Society just improved! I hope many more religious people quit their jobs over their silly superstitions.

Shadow Blasko: zombat: Confabulat: ciberido: But there's more than one version/translation and they don't all give the same number.Yeah i've heard 216 is the number based on "6 by 6 by 6" only once but i heard it/ read itI 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
