In a message dated 97-10-04 11:04:24 EDT, you write:

<< The funny thing is, by ASCII code, his name in numbers does not add up
to 666, contrary to Mac/Fundamentalists everywhere. It only adds up to
666 if you count his last last name (I don't know the proper term for
it) of III (as in The Third) as being either 111 as in one -one -one,
which it is not, it is roman numerals III and three I's in ascii don't
add up to 3, which would be the neccessary result to get 666 as a sum
for his whole name, or you'd have to call that name as "3", which would
be wrong, because if you used arabic numerals, it would be 3rd for
"third" so ascii is off again. This is one more example of idiots not
doing their homework.

Of course, but it still works doesnt it? Instead of translating the 3 into
the number 3 represents, they just left it as 3. Everything else is fine.
What do you think about the Pope's number? And what does TAANSTAFL mean?
