Confabulat: 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.


I understand he's a half-wit loon and he can have another W-2 if it makes him happy.

What I don't get is why he thinks that this casual appearance of the number is damning. That Jesus is going to send him to hell for this. What in the Bible makes it a sin for him to use the W-2 he got?

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.

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

oh crap that's my PIN

Many years ago I was in charge of door access permission at a pretty large company.

Whenever someone lost a badge I would set the temp code on their new badge (single use) to "moon" on the number pad.

It helped me quickly figure out who the superstitious nutjobs around me were

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.


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.

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?

That kind of makes it sound like numerology which is right up there with astrology on the irrational scale.

"If my husband makes $10, one goes to God, two go to savings, and we live on seven," she said.


If you're not burning banknotes on an altar as a sacrifice then that money isn't going to God. Tithing to a church is actually giving money to a priest or minister to spend. Not the same.

I wish I could learn some ancient languages to understand the Bible. There's simply no way the centuries of editing and butchering to fit into English can reflect the actual texts.

Although no matter what language it's in, Revelation is pretty batshiat crazy.

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!!
