The hotels in Hell, Michigan are all booked up, and their gift shops are overflowing for the event.

Hopefully the effects wont be as devastating as the millennium tragedy 6 years back.

Thanks Josh. Glad you appreciate quality comedy! I'm going to have to consider your advice. But I do think you've gone too far. Yes, as evidenced above, I have loads of material that is clearly comedic GOLD. But the next Pauly Shore? That implies a level of excellence and a place in the pantheon of comedy Heros of which I dare not even dream.

I had a dream few nights ago..basically in a middle of a dream..where Im being chased by a goose..who turns into a barell and lifts me above a huge container of milk,A message almost interupts proceedings "Tuesday June 6 06" and a voice keeps stating this over an over again.I awake and I was thinking jesus whats the story about that goose!...then I start thinking about the date and realise that Tueday is on the 6th, June is the sixth month of the year and 06 funnily enough is the sixth so 666,now strange thing is I had no idea why this appeared in my dream as I had no clue that this day was coming up or that this date added up to 666 and even stranger since this dream on every day I have been reminded of it by what I can only call odd happenings...so that's whats going on with me at the mo,im sure its nothing but still if something does happen to me please please someone get revenge on that nasty ill tempered goose!

Being that I really hope to have a hand in the end of the world, I believe it will be a tad later.

Last night I couldn't sleep so I turned on the radio (KFI) and the anouncer said it's 66 degrees in Los Angeles...on the clock it was 12:06!

So somewhere tonight on ROUTE 66 at 6:06 pm on 06/06/06 it will be 66 degrees (somewhere) and some guy who is 66 years old will drive by houses numberd with sixes containing 6 year olds...

If you want to get really technical, we should have done this 3 days ago, on 6/3/2006. Why? Because the bible says the number of the beast is "six hundred three score and six". A score is 20, so we had 6/"3"/"20"06! ;)

Thus three score is 60 (20 + 20 + 20) making it the tradiional 666 (six hundred (600) + three score (60) + six 6). Anyway according to this site http://www.religionnewsblog.com/11134 the actual number is 616 due to a mistranslation from the original greek. This makes Grand Rapids Michigan the home of the beast as their area code is 616.

funny. My little brother just did that. I told him what today was, and He brought out my dads shotgun, (I don't know where he got that...) and he pretended to load it. Little did he know, that it would actually work. Click! It actually loaded, he had it pointed to me, so he just sat there in udder surprise. He stood there, and looked at me. And he slowly put the gun on the floor, and left the room. (I was just busting my guts out laughing.) Oh, good times...

Beware of internet scholarship.

Dan Wallace, one of the best textual critics around, has responded to the article - you can find a link to his response on the page the Payne posted. While Dr. Wallace is sympathetic to 616, he is far away from stating that 666 is out the door. Most telling is Wallace's statement that the author "...did not interview textual critics for this piece. Aitken makes the astounding claim that "it now seems that 616 was the original number of the beast."

Yeah, the "semiChrist" was a good one.

One of the funniest 'devil' things I can remember was on an episode of the old TV series "Lost in Space".

Dr. Smith disappears from the surface of the planet they are currently on, and finds himself in a gloomy, reddish cave, with lots of torches mounted on the cave walls. He then finds himself standing in front of a guy dressed in a stereotypical devil's costume - all red, with a cowl, etc....

Dr. Smith: Who...who are you?!?!

"Devil": (speaking very casually) Now who the devil do you think I am? And where in Hades to you think YOU are?!?!

Devilish laughter follows, along with a patented Dr. Smith scream.

Well since they didn't have the arabic numbers we use today when the book of revelation was written the mark of the beast should actually be DCLXVI instead of 666 anyway.

Here's my shiny happy Satan story...about 15 years ago, I went to see the movie "Prince of Darkness" (Satanic horror flick) with my best friend. We each got a Coke, and we split some nachos; the total came to $6.66. A week later, I was at a Denny's with another friend. We each got a Coke, and we split an order of nachos. I told him that a week ago, at a movie about Satan, I shared the same order with the first friend, and it came to $6.66. About 1/2 hour later, the Denny's waitress brought our check...at Denny's, the Cokes were cheaper than at the movie theater...the nachos were more expensive...and yep, the check was for $6.66 again.

Good to see somebody brave enough to give birth on 6/6/06.. :P Every news organization ran stories about how parents across the country were inducing labor on 6/5. One new father interviewed by CNN said when his first child was born on 1/1, his friends teased him about missing the deadline for tax deduction; they had to induce labor because he couldn't bear the endless teasing if his new baby was born on 6/6. ..Sounds to me like his friends are a-holes. :P

A little late, but from The Onion:

A pregnant woman in England is trying to get her hospital to induce labor so the baby will not be born on 6/6/06. What do you think?
