666 is Money, submitted by mmmcurry. This is a really cool website where people draw on money to create political artwork. I think it's a neat idea, but I think it might be against the law to draw pictures on money. I guess it might be hard to find out you did it unless you're caught with the money in your pocket.

New Testament ‘scholars’ erroneously translate the classical Greek word charagma as ‘mark” rather than money. Look the word up in the unabridged Greek lexicon by H.B. Liddell (reproduced below) and see the correct, in context translation is money.

Since Hebrew and Greek letters have numerical equivalents (i.e., A=1, 6=2, J=10), the number of the beast (666) is the sum of the separate letters of his name. Of countless explanations, the most probable is Neron Caesar (in Hebrew Letters), which, if spelled without the final n, also accounts for a variant reading, 616.

I guess it's about math and stuff on top of making dollar bill art. It's pretty complicated, but I'm sure someone who did a little better than me in algebra II can probably figure things out.

    Meditations from a Movable Weiner

    Sometimes I dream that I'm sitting in the back of the defunct Weinermobile as it careens driverless down the highway. At first I thought this was symbolic of the powerlessness I feel in life, but then I realized it's actually the Weinermobile's dream of being able to drive again.

    BarkWire.com Dog Reviews: The Barquis de Sade & Cleaver

    Three years ago, when we were burying my uncle, Cleaver and some gross lady dog (Solstice???) showed up at the cemetery and starting going at it really loudly. It ruined everything and we had to have a "re-do" the next day and it cost a fortune. I've hated him ever since for that.
