KISSES FROM COLBY, 50¢


If the extra hot temperatures this summer and all of the war/famine/financial collapse going around don't turn your mind to the End Times, then maybe a little instructive graffiti will.  The fine citizens of Baltimore know Colby needs a J.O.B.  Helpful as ever, I woke up to this suggestive job posting directly outside my front door this morning.  With "777" spray-painted nearby on the side of my apartment building, things have got to be looking up.  I guess this means the End Times have already ended?  Or maybe (hopefully!) I'm a lucky son-of-a-bitch instead of a tool of the antichrist.  Mark of the Beast + 111 has to mean something good.  Has the Anti-Colby cum?  Either way, for only 50 cents you can help a brother out.  For more, you may even get a personal revelation from the Prophet Keller.  All tithes welcome.  For further instruction just press the handy donation button to your right.  :-)

  1. There was a RadioLab about this. Apparently you can go on line and help them sort through the scraps.

    In May 2005, it was reported that scholars at Oxford University using advanced imaging techniques had been able to read previously illegible portions of a manuscript which stated 616 instead of the majority of texts which state 666.[11] The existence of manuscripts attesting to 616 had also been noted before this finding. Another early witness Codex Ephraemi Rescriptus (C) (a palimpsest) has it written in full: ἑξακόσιοι δέκα ἕξ, hexakosioi deka hex (lit. "six hundred and sixteen").[12] This, along with the translation of P115, has led some scholars to conclude that 616 is the original number of the beast.[13]

    The NRSV translation for Rev 13:18 includes this translation note: "Other ancient authorities read six hundred and sixteen".

    But it does suggest a slot machine win. So there's that.
