Celebrate the day by watching the absolute most appropriate 1980s music video of all, Iron Maiden's "Number of the Beast".
I wonder which AMV's (Anime Music Videos) use this song?
Neon Genesis Evangelion/End of Evangelion
I didn't think there was any particular significance to June 6th, 2006, considering that it's not really 6/6/6. It's 6/6/2006 and that two and pair of double zeroes doesn't really fit in anywhere in the book of Revelations, as far as I know. Plus, 6/6/06 has come and gone for centuries in the past, without much incident.
But one of my online friends, a Catholic, was dead terrified of this date coming. I tried telling this person that it's nothing but silly superstition, but, well, this person believes in horoscopes as well, so my reassurances that nothing bad will happen would have fallen upon deaf ears, in all likelihood. That's unless some Eschatology-believer went nuts and just started shooting at random or something like that, but, even if that kind of crap had happened, it wouldn't be because of some kind of malicious demonic force that was unleashed because of the triple occurance of 6 on our calendars.
And my friend is not the only one terrified. Apparently, some pregnant women were requesting C-sections in the days before June 6th, 2006, so they wouldn't give birth to Hell babies. (My own sister didn't really have to worry, since she's still about two weeks or so away from her due date.)
Also, the real number might not even be 666, it might have actually been "616", and could possibly really be just some kind of obtuse reference to Emperor Nero.
All I believe is that whomever wrote the book of Revelations was high on more than just Jesus.
