The Mark of the Beast ... 616

Rose filled us in on this recently, thanks to her thorough theology teacher. However, rather than write it all, I will rely on Rick Lugari's post, via Jay Anderson. Suffice it to say that whatever it is the numerology signified Nero and I think we're way past worrying about him.

However, if you really want to get into the spirit of the day, check out these surprising facts about 666. Here are my favorites:
6. The world did end on June 6, 2006, but on that date according to the Julian calendar. So, like 10 days ago. Didn't you notice? There were dragons and fire and everything.

10. If you call the telephone number 666-666-6666, you get Satan's house. His Infernal Majesty becomes particularly irate when contacted by telemarketers during the dinner hour.

11. Speculation that the "mark of the Beast" will take the form of bar codes or computer chips is incorrect. The mark of the Beast is actually conferred by Livestrong bracelets.
