so is it good or bad??

Hmmm. Today's date is 6/6/06. Once in a lifetime coincidence. On one part of the world its supposed to be an auspicious day. This is because the number 6 in Hokkien sounds like 'luck' (correct me if I'm wrong on this). And we all know saying luck 3 times in a row is always a good thing. Then you have the other part of the world who believe that 666 is the mark of the beast, the Antichrist. Hence the nicely planned release of The Omen (a remake of course) today.

So which is it? Do we take it as a good auspicious day and paint the town red, get hitched, buy a lottery ticket or take a chance in something. Or do we shy away from it since it related to the Antichrist which would mean bad luck, hell, evil and all that dark stuff. Its weird right how 2 cultures can view the same day in 2 extremes. Good vs Evil. Right vs Wrong.

I for one couldn't care less. Its just another day in our life. You don't need the damn date to be a special number to do something. How can we waste our time using numerology to control our views, actions and life. Don't we already have enough shit in our plate to trouble us already. The only numbers we should be worried about is how much is coming in at the end of the month and how much we gotta take out to survive!
