Late, as always

Yes, I realise this is a day late, but someone on rec.arts.sf.composition posted a link to a rather droll page about The Number of the Beast.

I must admit that after reading about "mini-beasts" some years ago in connection with school nature study -- it meant things like wood lice and beetles -- I've always thought of 333 as being the number of the mini-beast, but perhaps I should have used .666 and thought of them as millibeasts? I also thought of one addition to the list. If the Beast had a second home in the UK, the Beast's post code could be HE66 6LL.

There's also a more serious consideration of the meaning of the biblical passage here.
