Which reminds me that the bus I used to take for school, in the golden days of walled-in Arnebburg, departet from "my" stop at 0653 hours. So if I arrived even a minute late, at 0654 hours, say, I would miss it and be in a squeeze to reach school in time.

And if you'd've arrived at, say 0655 hrs, you'd be two minutes late 'n'all.

Form 656 is the IRS "Offer in Compromise".

This is the form a taxpayer submits to start a challenge to his tax bill. "You say I owe $10,000 in back taxes, but I think I owe more like $12 and 48 cents. Thank you"

Only one year later, 660 AD, Domangart II. became king to the western Scottisch/Norn Irish kingdom of Dal Riata. He succeeded Conall II, would you believe it.

Well, and 666 - you all know that one.

Watch on youtube.com


666, incidentally, is also the extension of our doctor on call. So, if you work in our protestant hospital and need the doctor, you call 666. I've always found this slightly disconcerting. I mean, they could have used -111 or -333 for the Holy Trinity, or -517 for Martin Luther, or 124 for Alpha and Omega, or what the fuck ever. Just not -666.
