'It's very good jam,' said the Queen.
'Well, I don't want any TO-DAY, at any rate.'
'You couldn't have it if you DID want it,' the Queen said. 'The rule is, jam to-morrow and jam yesterday--but never jam to-day.'
'It MUST come sometimes to "jam to-day,"' Alice objected.
'No, it can't,' said the Queen. 'It's jam every OTHER day: to-day isn't any OTHER day, you know.'
'I don't understand you,' said Alice. 'It's dreadfully confusing!'
'That's the effect of living backwards,' the Queen said kindly: 'it always makes one a little giddy at first--'
'Living backwards!' Alice repeated in great astonishment. 'Inever heard of such a thing!'
'--but there's one great advantage in it, that one's memory works both ways.'
'I'm sure MINE only works one way,' Alice remarked. 'I can't remember things before they happen.'
'It's a poor sort of memory that only works backwards,' the Queen remarked.

Life is...

"Life is a chainreaction."

"Life is a series of fortunate events, of which some may appear unfortunate at the time being."

"Life is learning to hold on to yourself, before holding on the someone / something else."

"Life is letting go of the past, living the present and creating the future."

"I go forward in life by walking backwards, that is why I only see the past, forget to enjoy the present and don't see any future."

10 years of evolution...

...right there in front of my home.

While Technotronic was pumping your audio system, and Roxette rocking away, the 5th gen Celica's were born. Build upon 20 years of Celica history, constructed from 1990 to 1993. This generation would turn out to be the best rally car at its time. Carlos Sainz was the World Rally Champion driving a Toyota Celica 2.0 Turbo 4WD ST185. Only 5000 special edition Carlos Sainz Celica's were made, next to the regular 2.0 turbo.

One day in 1991 a blue ST-i 16v 1.6 went for it's first drive. A hot summer, 12 years later, it moved to a new owner, namely me ;) Looking for a car that would fit my budget, I remembered that back in the nineties I already liked the Celica. When a kid's dream becomes reality, great things happen. I had a ton of fun driving that car, and started to really enjoy the freedom and thrills of driving.

The year is 2000, the fear for the millennium bug reigns supreme. While the dot-com bubble started to burst, a new Celica saw the light of day. The 7th generation was born. It would be the last iteration of the Celica legend, because as of 2006, the Celica is discontinued. This was a sad commercial decision, but Toyota is not completely giving up on that niche market. In the USA a new Toyota brand was launched: Scion. It's latest model called the tC is said to be the replacement for the Celica. Being sold exclusively overseas, it remains questionable if the European market will ever see the Scion brand.

I'm very happy I now own a last generation Celica. However, 35 years of car history is now only left in our memories. RIP Celica.

Oh noes! The shock! The horror! Today is 6/6/6.
In the New Testament, Revelation 13:16-18 states:

"Also it causes all, both small and great, both rich and poor, both free and slave, to be marked on the right hand or the forehead, so that no one can buy or sell who does not have the mark, that is, the name of the beast or the number of his name. This calls for wisdom: let him who hath understanding reckon the number of the beast, for it is a human number. Its number is six hundred and sixty-six."

So there you have it, number of the beast. Western societies commonly see it as the number of the Devil. So will we face the Devil's wrath today and enter a new dark era? Ha! Well the sun is shining over here, so I have my sincere doubts :D

Anyhow, we use the Gregorian calendar, which was starting to be implemented in the 16th century. The Bible however was, let's say, written a few years ahead of that. On top of that the new calendar system is filled with flaws. Check the link for extensive information. So even if 666 was meant to be a date, it would not be today.

The plot thickens...
Now let's have a look at this thing called the Devil. It is mentioned in the Bible as a fallen angel. Christianity used a mindset of duality: good and evil, God & the Devil. What they didn't tell you is the reason they did this: it was to control people by scaring them of all evil, the Devil and Hell. This was a walk in the park to do in that period of time. Nowadays, Christianity has lost it's control to some extent, fortunately.

666, Devil, today? I don't think so ;)
