I had a probationer who kept begging me in May and in June to reschedule his apt - he was set for June 6, 2006 - 6-6-06. The 1st time he asked me, I assumed he had something else on that day, and was about to do it. When he told me why - though - because of the 666. I would not do it. I mean, I have to be here... He can be here. If something happens to ya, ya gotta be SOMEWHERE anyway... And, I think that's silly.
What's bad luck in 1 culture is good luck in another. I think I read years ago that it was a good luck # in some other country.
I don't mean to get on a soapbox, but to those of the Christian Faith, the number 666 is the mark of the beast, or Satan, that will appear during the latter days of Earth. Those who hold to the Christian Faith are exempt from that time period, as we will already be in Heaven.
I know what it means - I went to Catholic schools in elementary and highschool. But, around the June 6th date - there was a lot of talk about it on the news. If I remember correctly, the # is believed to refer to 1 Roman Emperor. And, in 1/2 the texts, it actually was 366, not 666.
Anyway, in today's time, it's really a superstitious thing. Like, when I was a kid, and my mother checked out - when the total was $6.66, she added a pack of gum. I think this is silly - as is the concern of 666 members on the site. Or, the whole June 6, 2006 thing.
I know the significance of the # to Christians, but I don't believe in any significance of the # turning up in random places...
