|it's over and not a moment to soon, I don't think I could have handled one more cheesy news story making reference to 666, Armageddon, Revelation, or the party in Hell, Michigan. Tomorrow we have to look forward to stories of how nothing happened on 06/06/06 and how we'll have to wait another hundred years.|
|The drive home was all but exciting. At least until I stopped at
the gas station to top off my tank. Because the day was not yet over and I
wanted to maintain my preparedness I figures that it would be best to stop and
top off my gas tank, after all I did drive over 60 miles since I last filled up
my tank. It took 2.299 gallons of regular octane gasoline at $2.899. Do the
An ominous sign to say the least?
|Lunch was uneventful..|
|The drive into work was free of incident, although, people need to understand that turn signals are for signaling intention not action.|
|Well, it's here, 666. So far there are no signs of the beast.
Something that most people are not taking into account is that 666 holds no significance as a date but is significant only as the name of the beast. Whether the terrorists understand this remains to be seen.
As of 6:30 am, the sun is shining, and there is a gentle breeze from the south-west with no signs that the skies will become overcast. My shower was hot and refreshing, my coffee was full bodied and flavorful, now let's see how the drive into work will be.
|Recently, I have noticed many blogs talking about the possibility of terrorist activities that may or may not occur in Tuesday, June 6th, 2006 (666). I hold no credence in the significance or superstition of numbers. It is my belief that the numerical significance is placed on the event after the fact to make the relation between the event and the date of its occurrence appear linked and credible. With that being said, we must realize that we are dealing with superstitious, religious fanatics that will do anything to promote their cause.
I have no apprehensions about Tuesday; it will be a day like any other day, like the twenty 666s that came before it. I will not change my daily routine on Tuesday any more than I would on Friday the 13th. I will, however, be more aware of what is going on around me, more observant of suspicious behavior but not to the point of paranoia. For those of you who are entertaining the idea of staying home and locking the door on Tuesday because terrorists have attached some numerical significance to 666, I believe that you have already surrendered to the quintessential goal of terrorism. As long as you’re home with nothing to do you should go to the FEMA website and take the online course; FEMA Independent Study Program: IS-22 Are You Ready? An In-depth Guide to Citizen Preparedness, to ensure that you are prepared when a disaster does occur. Despite what many people think, your survival is not the job of the government. It is your responsibility, regardless of the type of disaster.
See you Tuesday.
