To be honest, until this morning's 4-Block World, I haven't really found any of the cartoons all that good, which is why I haven't been posting. Still, Tom has hit it on the head with today's.

Anyway, happy 6-7-6, which as we all know is 26 squared, which, as we all know, is 13x13x2x2, and we all know how bad 13 is, and we all know what #2 is (George Carlin did a whole thing about that, didn't he? "Why did they pick number two? 13 already had a bad rap; why can't it mean "sh*t" and bad luck?"). Maybe I'm the only one who ever heard this: the significance of 666 in the Apocalypse (or the Revelation of St. John, depending on what you call it) is that it's a numeric representation of "Nero Caesar", the emperor of Rome at the time that John wrote it. In fact, from what I remember, most of the Apocalypse was political commentary disguised as religious text.

Anyway, enough theology for one day...
