Spooky: 6.66% on 06-06-06

Posted by: Peter Coy on June 6, 2006

Today is 06-06-06 and the 30-year fixed rate mortgage, according to the Mortgage Bankers Association, is 6.66%.666.jpg
I will leave it to the more supernaturally inclined to tell us if this coincidence has any deeper meaning.

Now this is just too trippy. I celebrated my friends 40th birthday on 06/06/06. You do the math. Yep... He was born on 6/6/66 as well! And there were so many trippy 666 events on that day I think I might have to go listen to some triple 6 mafia rap music to feel ok again...
