06-06-06 The Countdown to Armageddon

Tomorrow is 6/6/6, which will be a significant day for numerologists and Christian fundamentalists. It is the only day of the century where the date will read “666”, which is the mark of the beast in the apocalyptic New Testament book Revelations. An online search reveals that some people take this date very seriously. There are a few who believe the antichrist will be born tomorrow, others are going to call in sick to work, and some bookmakers have given the world 100,000-1 odds of surviving tomorrow. As always, the odds are in favor of the house, how would one collect his bet if the world did end?

It is no surprise that tomorrow is The National Day of Slayer, but did you know it is also the National Hunger Awareness Day as well? So maybe you can help fight off satan, the antichrist and the bogeyman by donating some food, money or time at a local food bank or relief operation.

Is it weird that I started headbanging at my desk when the music came up from that Slayer link?

Steph, yes, people are nuts.

Nice, nolff, beat up an emo kid day. Don't those kids have enough problems?

Mike, I must confess that I was afraid to listen to slayer in high school. Yeah, laugh at me.

Tim, that seems really out of context, but very funny.

EB, spoil the fun! Hey, it only takes 5 minutes to register.

John, I hear roasted goat tastes great.

Lawgeekgurl, I get dibs on all of the beanie baby, precious moments and longaberger basket collections.

Jim, that's funny. Are you excited about this weekend as I am? Silly question, I know.

I'm totally stoked. I will miss the matches on the 9th and 10th because I'll be at a conference in Atlanta, but my ass will be firmly parked in front of the television come June 11.

I also wanted to let you know that I'll be at Brugge Brasserie for the first USA game on June 12. It's a lunchtime game (11:55 a.m. kickoff time), so if you can get out of the office, please join us. For that matter, all Torpor Indy readers are welcome to join us there as well. I'll be there with a few fellow footie fanatics.

After the first game, Radio Radio will likely be my base of soccer operations for the rest of the Cup.

By the way, I'm surprised no one referred to the Iron Maiden song "Number of the Beast."

I've always had a soft spot for Iron Maiden. My roommate my freshman year of college was a Maiden freak. We used to rock out to "Run for the Hills."
