Okay, this is really creepy.

For the past 666 weeks or so, I've been working on a fairly long LJ post with more images than I've made for a single post before. About as many as you'd find in the average Hyperbole and a Half post, in fact, which is why it's taken so long even though most of the images are edits of images I found online. (Of course, one of the ones that isn't is a huge graph...)

Today, my calculator (which I've made a program on to keep track of how fast I need to work if I wanna finish the graph and post this entry before the next semester of college) ran out of battery power, and since I wasn't sure if we had any more lithium batteries (since replacing the regular batteries didn't help), I made an Excel spreadsheet instead.

Now here's the creepy part. About 8-10 times today, the spreadsheet's calculations gave numbers containing 666 (e.g., 16662.somethingsomething).

Plus, recently I've been rolling 3 dice (or 4 when there were 4 unfinished parts of the entry) to determine what parts of the entry I'm allowed to work on next (e.g., if I get a 1 or 4, a 2 or 5, and a 3 or 6, it's up to me, but if I only get 2's and/or 5's I have to work on the graph); just recently, I rolled the dice, and out of 216 possible outcomes, guess what I got?

6-6-6

Even scarier is the fact that just yesterday (well, technically the day before that since it's after midnight), pathvain_aelien saw the dice and thought they read 6-6-6. They didn't, but still, scary how all these actual 666's ended up appearing... :O

You realize that the real devil number is 616. They had mistranslated it from the bible.

While I believe it's possible that it might be 616, I don't think it's likely given some of the things stated in this article.

Furthermore, 666 has appeared in quite a few of my dreams since 2009 and, as mentioned in my entry, unusually many times in that spreadsheet and in the very first dice roll I did after I saw the 666's in the spreadsheet. In fact, last night I had a really scary dream - probably the scariest one yet. It might not have involved 666 or 616, but the fact that it was the night after all the 666's in waking life...

616, on the other hand, has only been in one of my dreams ever, has yet to show up in any of the dice rolls I've been doing, and I don't remember seeing it at all in the spreadsheet. 666 showing up much more often than other numbers = creepy, and also evidence that seems to support 666 being the actual Number of the Beast and not a typo. Until I start seeing 616 everywhere like I have with 666, or I see an article as well-researched as the one I linked to that supports 616 being the Number of the Beast, I'm leaving it at that.

Be extra careful crossing the street! And doing anything else that may suddenly go horribly wrong...

Perhaps this is the perfect time to buy a lottery ticket... When numbers start cropping up like that, over and over, it may be that there is some sort of natural pattern asserting itself, something that you could use to some advantage. I am mostly kidding about the lottery ticket, though.

Are you religiously inclined, then? I was not aware of that.

Yeah, actually, I am. Not crazy religious like some people are, and not an evangelist Christian either (well, not currently - I was in an evangelical phase the first few years of my Christianity, but I've gotten over that), but I'm still religious.

This is about as freaked out as I ever get, though. (Or possibly this, as for about a week afterwards, I stopped playing The World's Biggest Pac-Man entirely because of that. Now I only haven't played it in a while because I just haven't played any games on Facebook recently.)

That is actually really good to know, as I can be quite caustic on religious matters when the mood strikes me, but I do try to avoid it with people I know are likely to be offended.

Updating links for posterity
The first link in the above comment seems to now redirect to a much more recent article (but at least it's also relevant), so I'll just comment here to say that originally it was this one... which apparently had nothing to do with 666 but it was clearly this article because the bobblehead Jesus sounds familiar. :)

I'd rather wait until I finally finish it.

Blurb

If I had to pick six words to describe myself, I would panic and ask someone for help because I am so downright random and weird that there is no possible way to describe myself or my journal in only six words.

So here's a list of things you'll probably see in this journal, in no particular order:
- Posts about my life
- Posts about my worrying about being disliked for any number of reasons
- Posts about the fact that I'm trying to fix all the things that are messed up in my LJ and DW and catch up on lots of websites that I'm behind on reading
- Backups of my posts on Miiverse now that Miiverse is discontinued... so if you want to know what some random guy was saying about New Super Mario Bros. U or Nintendo Land five years ago, this is the journal for you :P
- Quizzes and surveys and such
- References to random things I'm obsessed with
- Whatever else I feel like posting

Some of the random things I'm obsessed with are:
- LiveJournal (obviously)
- Looking back at things that were made years ago... old posts on LJ, etc.
- Math
- Weird dreams
- Video games (mostly Mario, Super Smash Bros., Kid Icarus, and Chip's Challenge)
- Video game music
- Homestar Runner
- Enya, my favorite singer and biggest celebrity crush
- Too many comics/webcomics to name... Garfield, mezzacotta, Terror Island, and Circle Versus Square might be the ones I'm the MOST obsessed with though. Oh, and Super Mario Maker Crash Course - that counts as a comic, right? It certainly counts as something I'm obsessed with :P
- Speaking of Super Mario Maker Crash Course, my biggest *fictional* crush is Mary O. Yes, I have a crush on the guide to a video game MANUAL. I'm so weird...


For a (hopefully) complete list of interests and Q&A about me, visit my profile. :) (Which is still in need of an update...)

This journal is semi-friends-only, but there's not much rhyme or reason to which entries are public and which ones aren't...
