This Tuesday: 06/06/06

by Scott Rettberg · , 5:41 am

Numerologists are hopping excited, and fearful. The number of the beast, and all that. So in the morning it will be 06:06:06:06:06. This long a series of single digits in a date and time won’t occur again until, um, July of next year, when 7 gets its lucky day.

    Speaking of this, if anyone is in the area they might want to stop by the 06/06/06 conference at the U.C. Berkeley Center for New Media on Serious Games . Every year the Center for New Media uses x/x/x as a formula for the day of the conference.

    Among the folks appropriating the significant date for their dastardly ends are:

    National Day of Slayer

    National Emo Kid Beatdown Day

    The California state primary election

    i beg to differ,i foresee a night of extreme terror and death!
    the world will tear itself apart, the skies will be dyed blood red by
    the sheer loss of human lives, chaos! everywhere!

    everyone needs to settle down it is just another day

  7. Louis Dargin Says:

    Looking at “06/06/06″ mathematically, 06/(06/06) equals 6, which is a safe number, but (06/06)/06 evaluates to 1/6, or 1.666666…, which has many “666”s in it, and spells serious trouble.

    i THINK that this day is the day of devilish worship and is crazy and odd and and and….

  9. Yolaina Says:

    I also think that you people should know that our president’s name, George Walker Bush Jr. , is Satanic, or devilish, sign because
    if you notice George has six letters, Walker has six letters, and Bush Jr. has six letters, the question is not only is he a
    sign of the devil himself,but did his parents know this, or did it just kind of happen?

    6/6/06 would be way to obvious of a day for satanic terror all over the world. However it will be a night that many evil spirits will roam. Nothin major. These demons will only effect you if you let them depending on what kinda person you are and what activities you will be doing. And most of the time when you let them its actually pretty damn interesting/fun. I’m pretty sure God doesn’t condone it. But what better day than this….

  11. scott Says:

    I don’t know how you fared, in the rest of the world, but on this awful day, absolute mayhem was unleashed in Scandanavia.

    It’s the end kids. Nice sharing this earth with you- it’s the end of terror -you should be rejoicing. One thing you didn’t know is that it’s not 6:AM, but 6:PM. At 06:06:06pm EXTREME terror will be unleashed everywhere. Just a warning.

  14. Brad Says:

    ok..this is not a day of satanic terror or what not b/c the bible says there will be a world
    dictator and that hasnt even happened yet. none of this bullshit for a while to come.. not in
    none of your lifetimes so get over it

  15. mark Says:

    Phew! I was worried for a bit, but thanks to the Bible and “Brad” I can sleep easily tonight!

  16. Rukhy Says:

    Hello peeps! Everyone still living? :p

  17. mike Says:

    hey folks’
    I thought I would throw my 666 cents in.
    In the book of revelations in the bible it
    says 666, the mark of the beast, is the
    number of a man, not a date. Now thats a lot
    harder to figure out.

  18. andrew Says:

    Wow, if only GTxA was “a group blog about digital narrative, games, poetry, art, and satanic terror”, then we’d have so much more discussion.

  19. nick Says:

    But andrew, it became such a blog on 06/06/06!

  20. andrew Says:

    The devil’s in the details, yes

  21. Sean Says:

    the devil is at work

  22. Dirk Scheuring Says:

    The devil can’t handle all that discussion, anyway.

  23. scott Says:

    No rest for the wicked.
