The Numbers Game

I have never put too much stock in Numerology, but sometimes I am intrigued by how certain sequences of numbers pop up. Recently a friend and co-worker informed me that in the wee hours of Wednesday morning, the time was 01:02:03 of 04/05/06 and this sequence of military time would not be repeated for a thousand years.

Another curious set of numbers have some contemplating the end of the world. There are those individuals who believe the end of days will start on June 6, 2006 when the calendar will read 06/06/06. On that date they believe that the Anti-Christ will announce his coming.

Stay tuned here for further announcements down the road and have a nice day.

Hi Fuxxy! I have missed you too! Sorry to be a stranger!

Mimi said...

Numerology is neat. But we made the calendar (and have changed it too), not God. So I am not worried.

Big D said...

Actually it will be repeasted in a hundred years not a thousand. 01:02:03 of 04/05/(21)06. Just so you know.

Hey, that's my birthday...
Just kidding, its my ex-wifes birthday. No, still kidding, actualy she was born on Samhain and that's no lie. Odd, my first girlfriend was born on Halloween. Talk about omens. I've also dated three self professed witches. I think I need help...

I wanted to get married that day (6/6/6/) but Breezy refused. It got so bad that eventually she said if I mentioned it one more time she would kill me and when I told her to kill me on 6/6/6 so something would raise from my body she got all pissed off and gave me the old purple nurple. Anyways thats my story and I'm sticking to it.

Have a great weekend!

I study numerology Fuzz. I can tell you everything you wanna know about yourself. Just ask.
Seriously.

Ben Heller said...

Although that stuff about the end of the world is crap.

Curare_Z said...

I dunno -- I tend to believe there is a basis for things like numerology, astrology, tarot, etc. But the end of days? I thought that was Y2K. :-)

April said...

oh, how many times now have we been told the end is coming?

I'll believe it when it happens...heh.

have a good weekend!

ella m. said...

You know there's got to be a suicide cult preparing the Kool Aid for 06/06/06 as we speak.......they just wouldn't know what to live for if not the end of the world.

siren said...

I don't know how much stock I put into numerology. I do, however, on a daily basis look at the clock at the same time, morning and night. A specific time, and it's a little freaky. I've decided it must be the time that I'll die, so when it passes I always breathe a sigh of relief :) Made it this morning so far.

Green Eyes said...

Fuzz, I think we should have a party on 6/6/6, that way, if it happens, we'll be too drunk to care! lol

Have a great weekend!

:P fuzzbox said...

ann: Good to have you back.

mimi: Yeah, the Aztec calender looked much cooler.

big d: Thanks for that. Bit anal this morning, huh.

ozy: As long as you keep away from the Voodoo preistesses you should be fine.

cd: That would have been a cool date.

:P fuzzbox said...

angel: You too and Thanks.

ben: I guess it's because I don't like to think that my fate is ordained by anything other than my choice. Either that or I am bad with numbers.

cz: We dodged it once, we should be able to dodge it again.

april: I doubt it myself but isn't anticipation cool.

:P fuzzbox said...

ella: Everyone has to believe in something.

siren: Glad you made it through.

green eyes: You will certainly be invited to my announcement party. Woops, I shouldn't have said that.

Perplexio said...

But what they don't realize is that the Anti-Christ is dyslexic and won't actually announce his coming until 09/09/09.

ozymandiaz said...

Someone help me with this, it has been many a year and many a beer since I studied Numerology, and I don't mean the occult version but the actual religious version. (For those who don't know numbers were, at one time, considered sacred and only priest were allowed their knowledge) The number six (6) is a sacred number as I remember being that it is the number of man (5) plus one (1). Three is obviously divine representing the trinity. So how are two divine numbers combined equal evil? Also I have heard contentious stories about the original translation and the number isn't actually 666 but that number was used to conceal the actual number of the beast to avoid assisting someone summoning the evil one.

Bruce said...

The only number that I'm concerned with is the amount my checking account is overdrawn...

guerrilla blogger said...

i like june 9th..get it?!?!? 6/9...69..sixty nine... get it?!?!? oh man, i kill me....

guerrilla blogger said...

oh, speaking of numbers....my secret code for my cell phone is 0000, and when the robot chick voice reads it back, she says oh oh oh oh and i laugh....

:P fuzzbox said...

perplexio: Wouldn't that be 90/90/90 and those are some really bad measurements.

ozy: Those biblical writers were a tricksy bunch.

bruce: That's a number to be concerned about. Personnally I avoid numbers that register as either private or unknown on my caller i.d.

gb: That robochick sounds hot.

Laurie said...

LOL @ guerilla blogger!

I agree with the idea of having an end of the world party on 6/6/06..

Anelize said...

Fuzz, your post made me think of a great post for MY blog, regarding the 6/6/06 date. You'll have to check it out.

:P fuzzbox said...

laurie: And they thought Party Like it's 1999 and Y2K was scary. This will be one rocking day.

anelize: I will certainly keep two eyes out for it and everyone needs to check out your new template. Hope you don't mind me digging in your archives and found your Taco Bell Sauce Packet Post. You Rock.

The Phoenix said...

In Hebrew, letters are also assigned numerical value. 666 = NERO. He is the Anti-Christ, as he was personally responsible for the murder of thousands of Christians.

Apocolyptic writing is NOT about the end of the world and all that crap. It's ancient science fiction. You take something happening right now, and you throw your story into the future...just like sci-fi. It enables the author to make real strong contemporary statements, and not get persecuted because he'll say, "it's fiction, it's all made up."

:P fuzzbox said...

Phoenix: Bet the Southern Baptist bible thumpers would pitch a bitch over that one. But you are quite correct. The bible is an amalgam of all types of story telling from a creation mythos to a legal brief to a food label warning to erotica to satire to sci-fi to self-help to redemption to intervention and the list is as long as the human experience. It is a wondrous book in places but to hold it to literal interpretation is a bit presumptious of anyone.

But a big family one can hold a lot of pics. That is my favorite memories of the Bible. Taking out my grandmothers and great-grandmothers Bibles and seeing the history of my family and the changes in the world around all of us.

phlegmfatale said...

I'll be pleased when June 7 rolls around so we can stop dreading it for 99 years. *eye rolling* Superstitions annoy the crap out of me.

the weirdgirl said...

Damn, that's the day before my brother's birthday. Never thought of that before. I guess I better get him his gift early.

:P fuzzbox said...

pf: Even the Stevie Wonder song annoys me.

weirdgirl: You might as well. Who knows, He might disappear?

The Phoenix said...

I think I need to invent the Anti-Christ detector.

:P fuzzbox said...

You don't need an invention. You just know it when you see it.

Shay said...

*ahem*

June 6 is my mommy's birthday!! ^_^
That should cancel out anything evil that might otherwise have happened.

oops, sorry, I thought the category was "Books That Contain Guys Named Nero"

ps. it looks like og/og/og to us dyslexic

:P fuzzbox said...

shay: I am sure your mother will have a lovely birthday!

jim: So do the dyslexic think that cavemen were evil?

Jim said...

what do you mean "were" ????

:P fuzzbox said...

jim: Yeah, I so them on that Geicko commercial. That one Caveman with all of the bling had to be evil. Thanks for the heads up that is brilliant.
