Clinging to Bibles Dept.

A buddy of mine has informed me that an obscure version of the New Testament has been recently determined to be 150 years older than those texts upon which most modern translations are based. It has finally been determined, using modern scientific techniques, that the number of the beast was written as 616, not, as reported in the King James Version, as 666,

A fellow-PTSD sufferer friend with too much time on his hands has calculated the following:

666 = number of the Beast
665 = older brother of the Beast
660 = approximate number of the Beast
66600 = zip code of the Beast
$665.95 = retail price of the Beast
DCLXVI = Roman numeral of the Beast
666.0000 = Number of the High-Precision Beast
0.666 = Number of the Millibeast
/666 = Beast Common Denominator
-666½ = Imaginary number of the Beast
6.66e3 = Floating point Beast
1010011010 = Binary number of the Beast
6, uh . . . what was that number again? = Number of the Blonde Beast
1-666 = Area code of the Beast
666 mph = Speed limit of the Beast
$699.30 = Price of the Beast plus 5% state sales tax
$769.95 = Price of the Beast with all accessories and replacement soul
$656.66 = Walmart price of the Beast
$646.66 = Next week's Walmart price of the Beast
Phillips 666 = Gasoline of the Beast
Route 666 = Way of the Beast
666 F = Oven temperature for roast Beast
352 C = Oven temperature for roast Beast in Europe
666(k) = Retirement plan of the Beast
666 mg = Recommended Minimum Daily Requirement of Beast
6.66% = 5-yr CD interest rate at 1st Beast of Hell Nat. Bank, $666 min. deposit required
$666/hr = Beast's lawyer's billing rate
Lotus 6-6-6 = Spreadsheet of the Beast
Word 6.66 = Word Processor of the Beast
i66686 = CPU of the Beast
665.9997856 = Number of the Beast on a Pentium
666i = BMW of the Beast
DSM-666 (revised) = Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of the Beast
1232 Octal, Apt. 29A = Beast's hexed address
668 = Next-door neighbor of the Beast
333 = The semi-Christ

Dragging Monty Python into it... I have a button (found at some science-fiction convention, years ago) that says "333: Eric, the Half-a-Beast."
 
The zip code of the Beast is 66606 - oppps, that's where *I* live.......

I thought the number is the number of a man.  666 means most incomplete.

Well, d'uh.

*Everybody* knows Bill Gates is the Beast -- shorter and a bit creepier than he's described in Revelations, but that's all part of his plan.

Yes, Vista *did* lock up on me again today, thanks...
 
Shouldn't the Floating point Beast be 6.66e2, not 6.66e3?

Just sayin'... :)

666- more days until the General Election. Or perhaps it just seems that way...
 
666 days of campaigning.  It not only feels that way, I think it actually IS.

Speaking of microsoft, Bill Gates and Vista (which keeps locking up when I play videos), I remember reading a book that was ostensibly a murder mystery with an existensial run at angels and demons on earth.  Of course, the demons were looking for ways to make man's life harder and needed a cover with income to continue their evil ways.

Guess what business they created?

Computer Software: always locking up, always in need of upgrades and full of protections and copy rights that keep even the simplest programming upgrades from being implemented by the user (all that work in DOS right down the drain); requiring continuous purchases and assistance from...you guessed it...demons.
