Two people have been killed in the past three weeks on Highway 666, a two-lane stretch of provincial pavement in northwestern Alberta.
“It’s not that bad,” said Coun. Wayne Drysdale of the Municipal District of Greenview, which encompasses the road. “I don’t know if it’s bad luck or the number, just because there have been so many accidents.”
Gotta love superstitious people. My first question is: Why would Satan choose to pay special attention to a highway that he just knows people are going to associate with him because of the number? Wouldn’t you think he’d work extra hard to try and prevent any obvious connection so that folks wouldn’t continue to harp on and on about the significance of the number 666? I mean, if I were Satan (and I’ve been accused of such) I’d be working my butt off to make sure every highway in the area except 666 was just loaded with horrible accidents so that folks would begin to associate highway 666 with being the only safe way to travel. Doesn’t that make more sense? What an idiot this Satan guy must be.
