Well, wouldn't you know it. Today is June 5, 2006, meaning that tomorrow is... gasp... 6/6/2006, or, 6/6/06, or as banks put it, 6/6/6.

How do you feel about that date? Does it make you nervous about end-time biblical stuff, or do you dismiss it as a number? Do you feel people may act on the day? Let's discuss.

To me, I feel that 6/6/6 is just a day, and it will only be 6/6/6 in the whole world for one hour. People fail to recognize the ever-changing dates around the world from time zones.

However I feel people may try to do things because of the date. I'm a bit nervous about terrorist action, for example. Satanic people will probably have a hay day.

How do you feel about the date?

I find it rather funny... mostly because people think of it as 666, where as really it is 6/06/2006 - which is the way the federal government likes to write their dates. I mean, the year is abbreviated so if you put everything into full... the two gets into the way. And if it isn't the two, it is the zero. lol

I do know it is an important day for Northwest Airlines... it is when they see if they get any approval from the government and the unions to make some new changes. ^^; Since my mother works for the day, it is rather nervewracking for her since the company really needs this bill-like thing to pass. What a day to have it on too. XD

Biblical. Sure. Nero will rise from the dead tomorrow and burn down Rome again :P

It's rather silly, I think. It's just another day.

The thing about this that interests me is what was said and then highlighted in the film 'End of Days'

The Number of the Beast was identified through the Dreams of those about to be possessed. But in dreams images and numbers are often presented upside down or back to front, sometimes both. So in reality, 666 would mean that the Real Number of the Beast is 999.
Now in the film this made the lead realise that the Police were the enemy. How he worked it out i dont know since in America the Emergency number is 911, in england however it is 999.

All those wackos by the side of the road probably having a field day.

"Tomorrow (6/6/6) END OF THE WORLD WILL COME"
"Sinners repent, the armageddon is coming"

I'd probably laugh in their faces if I see someone like that.

So to me it's just a date but I to have a feeling something could happen, like a terrorist strike.

I find it very clever that they have set the release date for the movie-remake of "The Omen" to 6/6/06 (the movie is about Satan's son being born). That's actually all I can think of in that regard. Let's face it, the proper 666 date was 2000 years ago. :wink:

Yeah but I think it was Nostradamus that predicted the end of the world around the year 2000 or something like that ^^

Unbelievable.

This is me and my girlfriend's year's anniversary.

Thanks for ruining it for me, chump.

Eesh. Thought that was an unsightly scar...wasn't going to mention it.

Seriously though, I'm more afraid of what people might do today, just because they believe it's the day of the devil or something. I mean, techinically it's just abbreviated that way, but good luck changing some people's minds.

Meh, I just see the date as a coincidence, I seriously doubt that anything will happen. I mean, the same date happened 100 years ago, and obviously the world didn't end. Of course, a lot of people always talk about when they think the world will end. The year 2000 was quite popular, and now 2012 is being talked about as the end of time, I believe because some ancient calendar doesn't display anything after the year 2012. My parents and even my teachers at school said that people have been predicting the end of the world ever since they were little kids.

As a catholic, I do believe that the world will end someday. However, I do not believe that there is any way of figuring it out based on a date or numerology. I have always been taught that the world would end when things were at their absolute worst, and although the world isn't in the best of states now, things could certainly be much worse.

Hype! Hype! Hype!

I don't get why everyone is giving more than 2 shits about tomorrow. It's happened 20 times before on the Gregorian calendar, and nothing's happened yet.

Holy shit, I almost forgot. :o Dru, almost forgetting a chance to go around and act normal (for her) to freak people out more than usual? Good gods... something is wrong!

Haha, I think I'm gonna go down to the shop where I work and buy a cloak and some (more) freaky jewlery to wear tomorrow... I've got clothing and makeup taken care of all ready. ^_^ So many fundamentalists to scare the crap out of... bwahahaha...

Heh heh heh heh heh heh heh...

I think Drusilla has the right idea - I'm gonna dress in all black, go stand by the side of a busy highway tomorrow with a steak knife, and just stare at the drivers passing by all day... :evil:

Ummmm... just, somebody please pray for me so I don't get arrested -I never saw End of Days, but if the cops really are evil and they get me tomorrow... :eek:

Because there were people like Tina that had to ask questions all the time and the world never got around to ending! :-p j/k

OMG... if anyone does dress in a black coat and has a steak knife in hand, I want a picture of that. Make sure you have the 'death' look too... that just is so frigg'n hilarious.

It also might be mentioned that as far as religion goes, it does say that the end of the world will happen when no one predicts it. So if someone predicts the end of the world is going to happen on a certain day... then well, it isn't going to happen. I'm more inclined to believe the world is going to end when a huge gnashing comet is headed towards earth with an Alien army behind it than any 'scary' date.

Oh and Heald... just a thought... but that army of zombies that always follows you around..? That also might give it away too.

wasn't there something misinterpreted awhile back and the number turned out to be 616 instead of 666? (or am I talking out of my ass again?) if so, oopsies! thursday!
my plans for "the day" were to go see the omen with some buddies but after hearing it sucked royally I can't decide if I'm going to do anything out of the ordinary tomorrow. I heard something about a party but I think that fell through. dammit I hope the world does end, I'm already bored a whole day in advance.

edit VVVyeah supposedly people got uppity back on 6/6/96 too. so pretty much any year that ends in a 6 is going to spawning lots of demons. goody.

6/6/6 HAS ALREADY HAPPENED TONS OF TIMES BEFORE! In 1806,1706,1606,1506,1406,and so on and so forth the date date was there. What the heck is the big deal? Sometimes people make me wonder.

Does anyone have a feeling Goths are gonna have a field day? no offence to goths in any manner...

Besides I think I know the spawn of Satan, he gets picked on a lot so maybe tomorrow he'll burst out in flames and kills everyone.

I am gonna draw some symbols on myself wearing a heartagram shirt.

People already think I'm satanic.. and if anyone says anything to me I'll say its my constitutinal right of freedom of religion.

Magmar

The big deal is every century of humanity has one of these 6/6/6 scares at one point in their lives.

When it is 6/6/6 across the whole world, it will be 4 a.m. in the eastern U.S., 11 p.m. in eastern Russia, 8 a.m. in Britain. So if the world doesn't end at that time because of 6/6/6, then it won't. Otherwise it'll be 6/7/6 in eastern Russia, and ending the world on 676 is so unsatanic omg.

No offence taken at all, I know I'm having a field day! ^_^ I'm at work (I work at a goth clothing store) and we're having a sale today!

Looks like I'm not the only one that remembered that today marks the day when British heroes valiantly crushed the German forces at Normandy...and some Yanks got in the way, but they mostly died.

[b][size=3] In fact over here that day is considered auspicious. Taking into account that '666' in Mandrain dialect actually sounds like 'luck luck luck'; hence that day is considered lucky.

There are even couples which got married on that day and the birthrate for that day was even up by 30% on that day. 0.o" Talking about getting an easier way to remember your birth date.

So the end of the world happened, and none of us died, hurrah. Or at least....no one died over here. Some old homeless wrinkly may have kicked the bucket, but I didn't. And that's what matters.

So how did everyone else handle it? No satanic death terrorists attacked, I hope?

Someone did die.... aaagh, can't remember his name, but he appeared on two (I think it was two...) Beatles albums... played keyboard... black dude, I think... argh, I'm gonna go slam my head in a door, maybe I'll remember then. Yesterday was insane... I wish I was able to crawl back into bed and sleep today... zzzzz...
