What if he got a refund of $666.66, when he thought he was only going to get $400 or so?

Would he give away the difference, just to save himself from freaking out?  ???
He will come again with glory to judge the living and the dead. His kingdom will have no end.

So maybe I should go to a fancy restaurant, calculate my order so my bill would come up to $666, then tell them I am a devout Christian and storm out.

Good plan :D

Have you fellows been to McDonalds recently? Those "Happy-Meals" aren't very cheap anymore...we'd have to share them. I call the toy!
...Or it's just possible he's a mouthy young man on an internet forum.
In the infinite wisdom of God, James can be all three.

Well, I'm planning not to pay for it  ;D

That is why I said fancy restaurant.  Probably would have to order some really fine wine.

I wonder how many people would point and make fun of him... and then go to their fancy office buildings in NYC (or elsewhere) that were built so that they don't have a 13th floor.

MR. Slonopas seems quite sincere. He is not waging a crusade. I do not think he is worthy of ridicule. Is this some secular/hipster board?
I thought the "hipper than thou" crowd was out in the secular world.
Shame on all.

I read some of the kindhearted, loving, and tolerant things people had to say about him on the website.

When I first graduated from college, my monthly student loan payments were $666 per month (and some change). True story.

Here's the story of Highway 666 in Ontario. How about some others check out the same in your province/state/etc.

Quote
Route markers along King's Highway 128 were changed over to Secondary Highway 666, effective August 7, 1974. At the time, little thought had been given to the significance of the highway's new route number. However, the notoriety of this route number quickly began to be noticed.

It was actually a secondary highway in the middle of nowhere, but did exist.
