From the depths of the old internet (Deuce of Clubs
), here is a prank call to the Monticello Drug Company about their "666" Cough Preparation
, which was followed up by a cease-and-desist letter to the site, and explained the source of the "666" branding
. DoC replied
, and received letters of support from folks
, including the CEO of Montiecello, who found the whole thing to be a laugh
. The CEO also sent weird labels
to the Deuce of Clubs, including a box of/for "Ghost Scent," a re-labeled version of a body odor eliminator that was initially intended for older individuals, but found a following with hunters
. To finish this journey into the internet past, DoC collected images of products, and a painting of a rural scene
, complete with a "666 Cold Tablets" sign on a tree. [more inside]

June 6, 2006 (6/6/06) is the National Day of Slayer
and the rules are simple: Listen to Slayer at full blast in your car. Listen to Slayer at full blast in your home. Listen to Slayer at full blast at your place of employment. Listen to Slayer at full blast in any public place you prefer. DO NOT use headphones! The objective of this day is for everyone within earshot to understand that it is the National Day of Slayer.

That, as previously reported
, a newly deciphered fragment
of the Book of Revelations shows 616 is the true Number of the Beast
, rather than the popular 666
, is nothing new in the world of those obsessed with codes in the Bible
. However, one Bible code in particular -- Theomatics
-- has sparked debate among believers
The number 666
has been drawn by the Pennsylvania Lottery 12 times
. Well, legally that is. On April 24, 1980, Pittsburgh personality Nick Perry
