PLAY IT ...6 TIMES

Did you exchange a walk on part in the war ?

For a lead role in a cage?

      666 doesn't bother me.  I don't really think the numerical value, either as six hundred sixty-six, or as six-six-six, is in any way evil.  The Bible says it's the number of the beast, but I think that's because when it's written in Hebrew it looks like one of the names of God.  In Hebrew, letters are used as numerals, and the letter vav is used for 6.  Vav-vav-vav is a way of referring to God.  It also looks like the letter shin, which God used to "write His name" in the location where Jerusalem was to be built (three valleys form the letter in the landscape).  I think what 666 refers to is that the beast will "look like" God and people will follow him thinking he is God, but, of course, he isn't.  I don't think God meant to condemn the number as evil.

      That said, I did once buy a lottery ticket when my total was $7.77 in a store that sells tickets.  I'm not anti-superstition.  The ticket was a loser, though.  I think a better approach is to buy a ticket when my balance is $6.77, so it will be $7.77 including the ticket.  That way the supposedly lucky number includes the ticket, instead of the ticket taking away the lucky number.

      Longarm, Its true that in Hebrew, letters have numerical Value.  That is precisely why GOD'S name would not have the same number as the number of the Beast, which is the number of The AntyChrist! Rev:chapter 13 verse 15,16,17,18:"Let him that have understanding coun the number of the beast; for it is the number of a man, and his number is Six hundred threescore and six" (666) 

      The Name of GOD in Hebrew is YaH HA VaH, (YHVH) or some mistakenly write (YHW) Since the numbers and letters mean HE WAS, HE IS and HE WILL BE    His name is Unpronounceable Because in the Hebrew Alphabet the Letter "A" is= Aleph  and it is silent! THis is not an Accident Because The NAME OF GOD HIS HOLY, he will not permit man to use the name blasphemously! for their sake.  and yes,  I would buy a pick3 666.   Stay Blessed.

      forget what "they" say about youWhat you say about you?...

      Now, does it count??

        Since taxijohn gave us the thread about the lotto play coming to $13 I thought we'd domone on this.

        Let's say you pick up just a couple of things at the store or go for coffee and donuts and it rings up $6.66

        Do you play it?

        Do you buy one more thing to get it off of there?

        Do you play it?

        *9. Some churches teach that the nnumber in Revelation 13:18 should be 616, not 666, that the gematria was wrong. And 616 was Nero.

        That's really interesting:

        Virginia 01/03/10 night: 616

        Virginia 01/04/10 night: 666

         

        So, either way an unlucky number would have won on my birthday this year, and here is why: I am a South African of Dutch / German descent. My family had been in South Africa for many generations. I was born in South Africa but lived there for only the first two years of my life. We moved to California in late 1987 and then to Virginia at the end of 1991. I was born at 12:20 in the morning on January 4. Had my parents moved to America three years earlier, my birthday would have been January 3.

        Also, the first Apple computers sold for $666.

        However, I'd take Nero over Satan any day.

        Today's winning 3-ball is going to be a number between 000 and 999.

        In a lot of states, lotteries benefit education. That makes the REAL winners the only people who can't play!

                Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

                There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

                      Since we're disc ussing trip-sixes, from Chuck Shepherd's News of the Weird:

                      A 20-year veteran Houston cop who wears badge number 666 told theHouston Chronicle in a December profile that once, 17 years ago, adangerous perp who had been defiant that he would not be capturedsuddenly dropped to his knees and surrendered. He had glanced at thebadge. Said he, "I ain't fighting the devil."

                            US 491 used to be US 666. Read on:

                            Highway 666 is a road that runs fromUtah, through New Mexico to Southwestern Colorado. The section of thehighway that’s runs through New Mexico is supposedly a place of manyspirits that haunt motorists daily. This is not surprising due to thefact that the number of Satan as written in the bible is 666. Anapparition of a car apparently drives motorists off the road, only onnights with a full moon, a crazed man in a tractor trailer tries to runpeople over, and a pack of ghost dogs have allegedly run across carsand cut the tires with these sharp teeth.

                            The most known legends and stories toldabout this section of the highway are the ghost hitchhikers. Twoexamples of these occurrences are one girl tries to get cars to stopfor her, and when they do stop she vanishes. Another girl runs acrossthe highway in front of cars and when the car is about to hit, shevanishes as well.

                            These ghosts out on this road don’tseem too friendly at all, and quite frankly I think if I ever do findmyself in New Mexico, I’ll pass on the possible catastrophe that theseghosts cause. Drive at your own risk!

                              I drove the NM part of 666 a couple times before they changed the number.

                              It's mostly in the Navajo Nation if I recall. Long, lonely, desolate drive thru the desert.  Didn't see any ghosts though! lol

                              Not the kind of place you'd want to break down in at night though.

                              Although not much of that area is a good place to break down anyway.
