06.06.06: Number Of The Beast

Once again we experience a 'unique' number sequence. This time, it is the 'dreaded' 06.06.06 or 666 - the Number of the Beast. Some doomsayers have even predicted that the world will come to an end at this very day or that it will mark the coming of the antichrist. There's even a movie to be released on this day - The Omen, a remake of the 1976 thriller. I've to admit though, the movie poster is really eerie. You should try watching the movie trailers too (especially the teaser)!

There are even those who plans to get married on this 'auspicious' day. Auspicious because in the Hokkien dialect, the number six sounds like the word 'luck', hence a lucky and auspicious day. People just love getting (mass) married on special number sequences like 05.05.05 and 20.05.2005. I fret when 08.08.08 comes around!

To me, this is just another day. Armageddon will happen when it happens and it can and will most likely happen at any random moment rather than during a special sequence of numbers. So, what were you doing at the sixth second of the sixth minute of the sixth hour of the sixth day of the sixth month in the year 2006 - 06.06.06 06:06:06? Is that enough sixes for you? :P
