The mark of the beast

Is OOMA the Antichrist?

The phone number for customer support has three 6's in it!

~I'm happy thus far.......I am trying to reach customer service-I reached a busy signal. :?

Lots of 8s and 6s are good. Of course, 7 and 2 are good too.

If you check on your phone dial, the number 6662 spells ooma. I wonder if that is just a coincidence or maybe why they chose the number? Of course, maybe they got the number before naming the company and used the numbers to choose a cool name? :P

I thought 7-Eleven was open 24 hours! What if you needed a slurpee at midnight or got the munchies for a chili dog at 2 AM. Talk about things that are evil - shutting the doors on our favorite foods. I wonder if there is a Kwik-E-Mart nearby...

Originally they named it 7-11 because the stores opened at 0700 and closed at 2300.

You know, I think my parents talked about that when I was very young. I guess I had just hoped that things had changed. It must be great to not only be a part of history but be able to remember it too. Now what were we talking about? I think I need a squishee. :P

From Wikipedia:

In May 2005, it was reported that scholars at Oxford University using advanced imaging techniques had been able to read previously illegible portions of a manuscript which stated 616 instead of the majority of texts which state 666.[9] However, the existence of manuscripts attesting to 616 has been known long before this finding, the other early witness Codex Ephraemi Rescriptus (C) has it written in full: ἑξακόσιοι δέκα ἕξ, hexakosiai deka hex (lit. "six hundred sixteen").[10] This, along with the translation of P115, has led some scholars to conclude that 616 is the original number of the beast.[11]

The NRSV translation for Rev 13:18 includes this translation note: "Other ancient authorities read six hundred and sixteen".


So maybe there's no problem.
