1. Keep the receipt, bring it home,
soak it in chicken blood and burn it at the altar of the Dark Master.

2. 6.66 is just a number.
Four years of advanced math and a physics degree have taught me that I have nothing to fear from numbers.

Q3JR4.
Total nerd.

5. I was once trying out some thermal printers
for a desktop calculator, just entering numbers at random. Maybe a dozen numbers and operators entered at random. Total was 6.66. I saved that scrap of paper for years.

11. Pay collect my purchase and shout, "Hail, Satan!" before rapidly leaving the store
Checkout clerks love a little excitement in their otherwise dull working day.

13. Pay it and think, "Awesome!"
There was an occasion when a friend and I were driving back from Vegas and we picked up a sixer for the drive. The total was $5.02 (penal code for drunk driving in California is 502). We gave him 6 bucks and said "keep the change."

15. My car license plate features the numbers 666. Could just as easily
have been anything else. They're only numbers.

21. True story...
Some years ago the State of Texas made some license plates with 666 on them. A bunch of people freaked out and refused to accept them.

23. at the gas pump... I try to avoid having 3 sixes in the final tally.
Why? I'm really not sure, I'm not superstitious but it's just something ingrained I guess.

25. I used to have a car license plate that had the number 666.
I had everything from shudders to teenagers threatening to steal it for the cool factor. Cracked me up. *sigh* I miss old Zul.

26. Pay it. It's better than $6.67
And the real number of the Beast is 999. "And no man might eat braai, or drink beer, or surf, or play cricket or rugby, unless he had the number of the beast printed on his broekies."

30. Even if you believe in that stuff...
6.66 is not the same number as 666.
