Monkey Gone to Heaven

When I was a kid I would get anxious, comforted or nonplussed by certain numbers. Some primes particularly scared me, i.e. 13, 23 and 43. Other than the number 3 or 36 I wasn’t all that comfortable with anything involving a 3. Now, I can’t explain how I developed these weird superstitions. Perhaps some of it was absorbed from TV or something. I felt 777 was a good number that bodes well. Lou’s 3 monkeys post combined with the Dow reminds me of a classic I’ve posted here before.



If God is 7 maybe He will save us?
Sherman McCoy (NSFW) doesn’t seem to think so.
I had a Kaluha. And I realized that I… like you, my friends… don’t need no fudge-factor first-order-approximation God no more. He is no use to us. Let us take one step towards the Übermensch and not invoke such silliness in our thoughts any more.

There was a guy
An underwater guy who controlled the sea
Got killed by ten million pounds of sludge
From New York and New Jersey

This monkey's gone to heaven
This monkey's gone to heaven
This monkey's gone to heaven
This monkey's gone to heaven

The creature in the sky
Got sucked in a hole now
There's a hole in the sky
And the ground's not cold
And if the ground's not cold
Everything is going to burn
We'll all take turns
I'll get mine, too

This monkey's gone to heaven
This monkey's gone to heaven
This monkey's gone to heaven
This monkey's gone to heaven

Rock me, Joe!

If man is 5
If man is 5
If man is 5

Then the devil is 6
Then the devil is 6
Then the devil is 6
Then the devil is 6

And if the devil is 6
Then God is 7
And God is 7
And God is 7

This monkey's gone to heaven
This monkey's gone to heaven
This monkey's gone to heaven
This monkey's gone to heaven
This monkey's gone to heaven
This monkey's gone to heaven
This monkey's gone to heaven
This monkey's gone to heaven
This monkey's gone to heaven

777 is bad luck to the asians. they are probably freaking out over the djia finish today. bad juju.

Really?
I know 8 is the standard Asian lucky number, but when I was a Zendo student there were some sutras involving 7. I guess there aren't many Buddhists left in the Asian markets these days...

If you exist God, please help us - although we probably don't deserve it.
Thx,

It seems it may be time to take my guns out of storage.

I wish the huge black hole generator in Switzerland wasn't delayed.

The bottom picture is so funny!

The Nikkei 255 down 544.54 in the morning session. As for lucky numbers I like 11 - 17 - 22 - 23 - 24 - 33.

Lately I have been playing 484 on the pick 3.

And lo, the Lord did say unto his followers, "For the love of all that's holy, put some clothes on" and did make sure that all of his further creations were covered in fur so that he was not forced to look upon their dangly bits

Bailout protests in front on wall street. quote: "The bailout is bullshit, you broke it, you bought it."

Too late for the Swiss! Wall Street already won that race.

They say that all politics is local. Here's the struggle unfolding in another part of the world: "House moves to soften porn bill amid divide".

Akubi said...

@Centipede,
It seems my lucky number saved the day (at least for today)!

@Edgar,
Thoughts on the 23 Enigma?

@Ogg,
I wonder if they also speak in tongues like Palin's church...

@Mitchell,
Too late for the Swiss! Wall Street already won that race.
That's what I was thinking.
Wow, I thought Jakarta was a place where people go to screw little kids, get botched transgender surgery jobs, etc., etc. - yet they have a porn bill?! WTF?

Akubi said...

BTW, I'm pleased to say my local congresswoman voted against the bailout.
