Campaign underway




  1. How could you do this and not have Neighbour of the Beast as your current music?

    • Except on exceptionally rare occasions, what I put in the Music field of my entries is what’s actually playing at the moment. The thought did occur to me, though. 🙂

  2. I’ve always rather liked “vi vi vi — Editor of the Beast”, but of course there are lots of good ones at Nancy’s place (check on her search function; there’s NUMBER OF THE BEAST under Category).

  3. There’s rw-rw-rw-, the file protection scheme of the Beast.

    And in case you don’t already know, US route 666 got redesignated to US 491. 🙁 Here’s the Wikiedia entry.

  4. 666 Zip code of the Beast
    Shouldn’t that be the area code of the beast?

    • Nope. I just failed to notice when i used a spreadsheet to convert it to a table that it stripped the leading 0’s. Fixed.

  5. 2x4x666 …….the lumber of the Beast.

  6. 6, uh… what’s that number again? -- Number of the Blonde Beast

    aka the Dumber of the Beast ?

  7. 333 -- half a Beast is better than none
    999 _ The Beast Down Under


  8. SQRT(-443556) … the imaginary Beast

  9. When I lived in Massachusetts my telephone number was [area code] 877-6666. My answering machine message was

    “You have reached [area code] 877-6666. To leave a message for the $LASTNAMEs, wait for the beep. If you’re trying to reach anyone else you have the Wrong Number of the Beast.”

    Our kosher butcher said that he had another customer whose phone number also ended in 6666. theorized that somebody at the phone company had said “That looks like a Jewish name; maybe these people won’t come ranting back at us about the number of the beast.”

  10. My personal fave is 666A — The Tenant of the Beast. (Bet s/he is NEVER late with the rent…!)

  11. Amongst the traditional silly-reference auction bids of the LASFS are:

    111 The Victorious Beast
    222 The Ballet Beast
    333 Half a Beast
    444 The Golfer’s Beast
    555 Almost a beast
    777 The Lucky Beast
    888 The Gourmand Beast
    999 The Negative Beast

    Meanwhile, my daughter’s Girl Scout Troop was supposed to be #666 but somebody upstream chickened out and it became #663. AKA The Scout Troop Across The Street And One Door Down From the Beast. 🙂
