Beastly Dates Ahead

Owlish relates a conversation with someone concerned about the impending 6/6/6 date. Of course the world didn't end on June 6, 1906 (or 1806, or 1706, etc.) And which number of the beast applies? Some early manuscripts of the Revelation make the number 616, others 666. So look out on June 1. Unless you're someone other than a US civilian, since the rest of the world orders their calendar dates differently, and your world didn't end on January 6.

To be fair, it wasn't just the 06/06/06 date that concerned him, there were other recent events that he was worried were referenced in Revelations.

Even ignoring 06/06/1906, there have been lots of groups in the past who were convinced they knew the date the world was going to end.

On the other hand, I've seen many more people be superstitious about the number 666 than about 13. Oh well.
