I find this ridiculous
Evidently this girl drew the number 666 for her race bib and she can't risk her relationship with god by wearing it. She's dropping from the race.

It's sad that people can still think that a number holds some power. Go Kentucky!

Yeah, I saw that yesterday. I wish they'd given me that number when I ran cross country.

I used to work as a convenience store clerk, and people would add items if their total came to $6.66. People are dumb.

What amazes me is that I've met people who think this way, yet simultaneously think that the "no floor 13" thing is just ridiculous. I can't tell you how many times in my retail career that I had someone grab a candy bar or put something back because the numbers were in the total. I once had a lady who's total came to something like $3,625.66 who bought a soda just so there wouldn't be 3 sixes in her total.

Excuse me, I'm making perfect sense. You're just not keeping up.

RE: I find this ridiculous
When I was a cashier in high school a lady's change came out to $66.66 and she took the 60 bucks and then jerked her hand back and practically ran away. It was really surprising lol.

Swing with me a while, we can listen to the birds call, we can keep each other warm.
Swing with me forever, we can count up every flower, we can weather every storm.

I heard a rumor back in the early 90s, 666Mhz computers were renamed to 667Mhz for religious reasons.

Theism is to believe what other people claim, Atheism is to ask "why should I".

I heard a rumor that they had to change the name of the Nova before they could sell it in Mexico. I don't know why this reminded me of it lol.

Why didn't they just reassign her number though, seems a bit off that she still didn't get to run Sad

I know. As much as I think it is stupid they should have given her another number. Like Amyb says above I wish they gave me that number!Evil_monster

I simply refuse to stay on the 14th floor of any hotel because it's really the 13th and they aren't fooling me.
