666 -- the lucky number

I got a search hit for something about Padovan Numbers this evening. browsing through some of the other results on that search, I came across this site on numerology that says '666 is a member of the Indices of prime Padovan sequence.' now I have no idea what that means of course, but I'm sure it must be cool.

even cooler though is that '666 is the sum of the squares of the first seven prime numbers.'

they also say it is the sum of all the numbers on a roulette wheel. (and btw, there are 37 slots on a European roulette wheel. 37 happens to be the next prime Padovan number after 7...)

and apparently the Chinese think 666 is a lucky number, and since according to the financial press they are in absolute control of the World Economy And Every Single Asset Class The World-Over, the recent bottom in the Stock Markt and the future bottom in Gold shouldn't be a surprise.
