    Land of the Beast-666

    In town, the sheriff represented the law with a 6 pointed star.
    He enforced it with his trusted 6 shooter.
    When they bury you, you're buried 6 feet under
    and there are 6 pallbearers to carry the casket.

    The American flag has 6 white stripes between seven red ones.
    There are 6 coins in our money base-penny,nickel, dime,
    quarter, half dollar and the dollar.
    We speak in 6 tenses-past, present, future, past perfect,
    present perfect and future perfect.
    There are 6 vowels- a , e, i, o, u and sometimes "y".
    There are 60 seconds in a minute, 60 minutes in an hour
    and 360 degrees in a circle.

    And after work, you buy your 6-pack.
    You go home and plop down in front of the 6 sided box called a TV.
    You click the remote so you don't miss the 6 o'clock news. And when
    the newscaster's words bristle the hairs on the back of your neck,
    your 6th sense stands on end as you rotate on a planet
    that races around the Sun at 66,600 miles per hour !

    This "is" the Land of the Beast
    and you are in his house.
    Welcome home !

    HH

    Very Insightful. I like this flow.

    We are in the land of six..six..six.. see I used six dots too.

    What about the six degrees of separation.The government is separated six degrees form us.

    You--- > Governor--- > Senators in the Senate--- > House of Representatives--- > Vice President ---> President

    Six Courts: Trial Courts ---> District Courts ---> Internatinal Trade Courts---> U.S. Claims Courts---> Court of Appeals ---> Supreme Courts

    Six permanent members of the United Nations:

    United States ---> Great Britain ---> France ---> Germany ---> Russia --->China

    Makes you see a connection in that which is seemingly unconnected. As always, enjoying your flow.
