Google's evil stock price

Google turned 666 today.

Google may try hard not to be evil, but it's having a hard time keeping its stock price on the straight and narrow. At the close of trading today, GOOG hit $666/share. No more. No less. I can hear Vincent Price intoning (to the melodious sound of Iron Maiden):

Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six. (Revelations 13:18)

I guess most companies don't ever have to worry about hitting that number, since very few are able to muster a stock price as high as Google's. I am longing for the day when I can hold myself to 665 or sprint forward to 667. :-)
