US Route 666 used to run through Navaho country, down around Tuba City. They changed the route number because all the highway signs kept getting stolen.

999 is the number of the beast in Australia.
333 is the number of the semi-beast.

Good luck on that, though, Wesley; you realize if Bobert is behind the wheel, with his guitar on board, when he gets ruptured (oops, I mean raptured) the suv and the guitar and all will probably get all...hmmm...saying "all smashed to hell" might be strangely appropriate in this case...
At the risk of being half serious, I haven't heard a single person connect the date and the 666 thing except in jest. But then again, I have been managing to avoid televangelists almost completely of late...

It's all a bit of a moot point. New translations of Revelations have discovered that the King James guys got it wrong and the "number" should have been 616, so whatever was going to happen already did on June 1st (or maybe will on June 16th?).

Well, I broke my ankle in 1999. Does that count?

I've been able to avoid evangelists and televangelists for some time, fortunately - ever since I saw the last of my fundamentalist uncle who was also a very nasty piece of work. A few years ago, I heard he had joined a cult that believed they were going to heaven on the 29th August of whatever year it was. They apparently had their suitcases packed and everything. I did wonder though if you are allowed to take suitcases to heaven :-) He died a few years later in the usual conventional way.

A couple of kids I know mentioned the date thing yesterday. Apparently it's been talked about at school, but they didn't look particularly worried.

I used to have a little plush red devil with horns that I got one Valentines Day, but I dunno where he is. I guess the plush yello, green and purple Y2K bug that sits on my monitor will have to do, as a symbol of the stupidity of these ideas. He is kinda cute, tho.

Rapaire,

Actually Route 666 in Arizona (which was also in the southeast part of the state, but was discontinuous from north to south) got changed to 191 around the time of NAFTA in order to have a single route that ran from Mexico to Canada. Of course, this is the kind of blue line road that no commercial trucker would want to come anywhere near. It is scenic for the non-commercial types, though.

Sheesh, there are Wikipedia entries (1 and 2) that combine the stories.

To say nothing of this from "arizonaroads.com". There's something for everyone on the web, I guess!!

The REAL route 666- Britain's A666- runs from Irlam's o'th' Height (Salford) to Blackburn via Bolton, passing through the heartland of Lancashire's dark Satanic mills. It was truly the route of the Rapture on a summer's day in the holidays, because it was also the way the X60 bus to Blackpool went, and we would crowd round the bus stop by the Brittania, waiting for a bus with enough spare space to take us on the hour-and-a-half ride to the seaside.

My head's not currently spinning around, but there's still plenty of time. Carol C's sez: "I'll bring my accordion. I know they'll let me in if they see that. You bringing the marshmallows and pointy sticks too? I've got a banjo which isn't as hard to carry.

I'm Jeri C and I'm here to say
Today is the day we go away
Up to heaven, down to hell
Where we're bound, none can tell
But if it's true, what they say
About accordions and banjos, get outta my way
Cause there's a kitchen party in hell tonight
We'll dance and sing by that hell-fire light

Et cetera, but I have to go to work. I'll keep working on the head spinning thing. Maybe a couple more political threads would help.

Peace, out.

Here's some tread drift - Has anyone heard that Martin Milner from Route 66 and Adam 12 was an accomplished jazz guitarist? The guy who owns the local record store saw Milner in a movie and says he was playing some good lead lines on an arch toped electric.

There must be something about accordions...

About 15 years ago a friend brought a friend of hers to our music night and he and I became friends.

At age 42 he had been severely injured while working on deck a ferry.
When he woke up in the hospital he decided that he would spend the rest of his life doing the things he had always wanted to do.

First he learned guitar, then mandolin, then fiddle. He ordered instruments at a great rate from Elderly for a number of years. In fact, so frequently that for awhile I had him order guitar strings for me on a regular basis.

Now, he is into accordion. He started out with a button accordion then decided there was much greater versatility to the piano accordion, sold that and bought the other. He's taking lessons from the best accordion player I have ever heard, Dale Wygant. The man is serious.

I haven't heard him on his newest acquisition yet- but if he practices as incessantly on this instrument as he did the others he will get pretty good.

Dale, his teacher, is multi-faceted. Legally blind he bicycles all over our quiet streets. He has a doctorate in the Russian language. He plays in a hot band, most of whose members also play in the local symphony. Middle Eastern music is probably his greatest love.

I've been in awe of Dale ever since I heard him play for the local International Folk Music Ensemble. He introduced one tune as a Bulgarian piece, with 11 beats to the measure. The next one he introduced as a Hungarian one. This one, he said, had 13 beats to the measure, but no problem, he said. He would just add two more beats.

I gave up.

My friend is in good hands.

One of the strangest facets of doomsday(s) is that the believers invariably go out and sell their valuables. What do they plan to do with the money?

"One interesting thing about the Rapture is that it was never mentioned in the bible."

Sure, turn this into a religion bashing thread. ;-)

Nowadays, instead of a flag decal it's a flag lapel pin for the suit.

Or flags on both side of your car (apparently to get you into a presidential motorcade or some such?).

Or flag t-shirts with some arrogant and belligerent saying about America and/or Toby Keith.

Any of the above, along with a signed declaration that you hate immigrants and gays, and love Bush and the Iraq war, and you are all set for 666 heaven.

Hello... Is there anybody there? I just heard a big bang. Okay, not a BIG bang, but a pretty loud bang. All right, it was a neighbor shooting something with a shotgun. But, hey, just a thousand years ago it would have scared the shit out of everybody for miles around. Then they would have made up stories about how someone saw Satan pop out of a hole in the ground at the same time the loud bang happened. Hey, who's that red guy with horns walking down my driveway?

Listen up, folks...

Apparently the 40 million or so folks, including the president himself, must have misplaced a decimal point, 'er somethin...

But even though it weren't me personally who misplaced the decimal I take personal responsibiltiy for this mishap... So...

... I'm sorry and you can all go unpack yer suitcases...

BTW, the way I unnerstand this Rapture thing is that only the good and righteous folks get called up and the Earth is left with the misfits, accordian and banjo players, folks who yell at their kids in the Walmart, etc... You know the types... So havin' been 'round here fit a while I reckon that alot of you folks who have had yer suitcases packed all day were gonna get left behind with the rest of the heathens....

Hey, this is waht I don't get... Ain't this all kinda backwwards??? Like why kill off all the good people and leave the lousy people alive and well??? Shouldn't it be the other way around???

Nevermind...

well don't tell me the devil don't exist
the christians keep him alive and well
by mentioning his name over and over again.
that give him power as far as i can see.

that and the fact that as soon as the clock
struck midnight this morning (*june 6) there
was a call on my fire pager that we were being
called to go an extinguish...as soon as that one
was put out, another one cropped up. before the
night was over (at 4 a.m.) we had responded to
a total of 14 fires, one after the other..

definately the devil made him do it...

Joe: Thought you were Catholic, which to me is FFF (Far From Fundamentalist).

Last night on one of my favorite AM shows, CoastToCoastAM, the Art Bell inheritor, George Noory, had on a Jesuit Priest who gave a very liberal and logical interpretation of 666 and the Book Of Revelations. He gave a very good and modern impression of Today's Church that Cardinal Cushing, JXXIII, and JPII could be proud of.

No sooner had he left the air then all the conspiracy buffs, ET-phone home fanatics, and Card Carrying Fundies called in and trashed him!

They kept the accordion, Bobert. They wanted me to give them lessons, but I wanted to get back here with my friends, so I gave them a raincheck.

They said no problem, they'd be there waiting when I returned. For now, they're just trying to figure out how to get the straps over their wings.

My fundamentalist great-grandparents got married on 6-6-06 one hundred years ago. I got the impression that they didn't make a big deal of the 666 thing back then. At least not in their particular church. My great-grandfather told me a lot of stories from his youth and mentioned the wedding date with pride. Any numerical significance didn't cross his mind. Let people get fussed if they want.

Never mind, they'll adjust the date and if something happens at any time, there'll be people telling the significance of the date in retrospect.

I follow since some time the predictions for the date of the "American Hiroshima" for study purposes. About twice or three times a year it has been predicted to happen since 2001: At the end of Ramadan, 666 days after 9/11, the day before yesterday,.... Failed predictions never prevent new predictions (even by the same people) to crop up.

The great thing about a failed prediction, Wolfgang, is that it instantly clears the slate for a whole lot of new predictions to be brought forward. ;-)
