APAD 334: Shop six-six-six

A shop called 666 selling secondhand cars in Phnom Penh. Okaaay, that doesn’t sound right, i.e., if you know the story behind these, uhmm, dreaded numbers.

Cars for sale at Shop 666. Would you buy one if the shop offers a huge discount?

In popular culture, apart from the number “13”, no other number elicits fear more than 666. But why are we scared of these numbers? Superstition, maybe.

I know it could not be, but IF 666 starts appearing on my digital clock, darn, I’d be scared sh*tless!
