Blinky, Pinky, Inky, and...Satan? @ 10:19 pm

Right now I am annoyingly: scared i'm...quite scared right now

So, as you may recall, if you don't count LiveJournal's welcome post, then the entry where I linked to the maze I made in The World's Biggest Pac-Man is my 666th LJ entry.

Well, now I went to play it, and happened to glance at the maze stats:



:O

...Why would I like an image consisting solely of flames and the Number of the Beast?

See, 666 is only funny in a context where any number would make sense (for lack of a better phrasing), like the number of Pac-Dots eaten in the Pac-Man maze I made, the number of e-mails in my Inbox, etc. (And even then, it's still also scary, especially if there's more than one 666...)

Plus, if my computer's clock is correct, I received your comment at exactly midnight (in my time zone)......

You seem to notice 666 whenever it crops up, so I thought it would make sense.

http://www.escapeallthesethings.com/666-616-number-mark-of-the-beast.htm (616 might be the better "Number of the Beast," but I don't know)

Ah, got it.

I sent it at 8:50 PM in my time zone, which is probably 11:50 PM in yours, unless you're three hours and ten minutes ahead of me.

Eh, I think it probably is 666, but I'm still open to the possibility that it could be 616. We'll have to wait until the Mark of the Beast actually starts being issued in order to know for sure.

I sent it at 8:50 PM in my time zone, which is probably 11:50 PM in yours, unless you're three hours and ten minutes ahead of me.

Yeah, I think I just saw that you had commented at exactly midnight - the actual comment was posted 10 minutes earlier. Still kinda scary, though...

Yeah, I guess so! (you're giving me memories of reading that Tim LaHaye series, hahaha)

Why is midnight so scary?

What is that like?

Normally, it isn't (well, nowadays it normally isn't, but...). Midnight coupled with reading a LJ comment with a 666 image in it, though... :O

Oh, heh. I guess if you're extremely religious, that might freak you out. Midnight doesn't freak me out, usually - nor 666. Have you ever had to pay $6.66 for something? Or had change totaling $6.66? What do you do then?

I don't consider myself extremely religious like those customers. I've never had to play $6.66 for anything, but if I did, I'd probably simply add or remove an item - I wouldn't scream, “I don’t want it! The devil’s already marching through the stores.” or “Your cashier is touched by Lucifer himself! She needs to be baptized in the holy waters.” or anything like that.

In fact, as I was making the first frame of this userpic, I noticed that the area I was about to select to crop was almost 666 pixels wide or tall, so since it fit, I went ahead and selected 666x666 areas for all of the frames (then scaled them down to 100x100) and even put the numbers 663-666 instead of 1-4 in the filenames, so if I ever have to pay $6.66, I might not even end up adding or removing anything. Or I might. It all depends on how many of these ominous signs I've been seeing recently :P

Hahaha... good to know that you'd be rational about it. I don't remember having to pay that amount for something, or receiving that amount in change, but I do a bunch of shopping - probably not memorable enough.

HAHAHAHAHA. I guess so!
