I know that streak posts are generally hated but...

Have you seen my streak? I waited for this day for a long time.

Edit: The time has come. The streak is no longer the glorious number of the beast. I used streak freeze once for it to last longer, yet it had to come to an end.

if you're reading this, we need to vote it back


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Imoksoami

Your post earned it an up vote from me :-)


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/PERCE_NEIGE

69 is another meaningful figure.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/LaserDuck

In 3 days you will reach greatness


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/drv3fanthem

We must upvote this comment to 69


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/DJrossonwye

That is great. a little pitchfork and everything! ;)


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/SmashCookie

That's just how Duolingo is outside Duolingo.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/drv3fanthem

Duo is just expressing how he is when you miss a lesson.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/merkavar

Time to get to 777 next

get to heaven :D

Congratulations!

What the... what?

This devilish owl is surprisingly pleasant to look at.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Davey944676

♫ Six! Six! Five! The neighbour of the beast!! ♫


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/MobiuS_360

Yes!! Finally I'm seeing metal references on Duo ahahah

-MobiuS


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Tembo441

Nope. That comment's too one-sided.

(And I'll be very surprised if I'm the first to make that sort of reply to you).


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Davey944676

Certainly not the first. In fact, it never ends.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/bonnythedog

wow! really learning stuff today!

(aber Soll Hineinsein...!). :)


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/wonbit

I don't mind streak posts at all, it's very motivational to see others excited about their progress. I have to say, there's definitely some added glory to a big streak when you're at a number like this. I'd be tempted to freeze that streak every day loool


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/LaserDuck

I must admit it is tempting to keep it for a few more days, but I doubt I will. Once you get to 666 you can keep it forever though ;)


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/BossElijah

Then you won't get to heaven! That's not a good idea. If I was you, I would wait until I had 777 streak and then keep it there.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/i-am-a-meme

not another crying duo :'(


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/MadelineDo934836

Wdym? Keep what where?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Boss-Elijah

Keep the streak at 777


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Linda7Italian

Well done indeed, you little devil you! (666)


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/buck72

Let's hope you continue to have internet access for the next few days. At least you don't seem to have Hexakosioihexekontahexaphobia. Best wishes for a longer streak! :)


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/IanthePrince

This occasion needs to be screenshotted or it is lost forever!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/GlassSlippers

Great job, gratz !!
Any special personal meaning for this number ? It certainly is original. Ahem. 0__0


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/LaserDuck

It seems it’s not updated on the forums yet, my streak is 666, the devil’s number.

I waited for the devilish jokes I’m probably going to make.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/GlassSlippers

Bring 'em on, we could use a laugh here. A laser duck and a devil ?
O__O


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/LaserDuck

Sorry, but I’m busy sacrificing my family to Duo the owl


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Jon786634

Pleased to meet you. I think I can guess your name.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/RachelYuan3

Oh wow Congrats though I thought my 2 day streak was wonderful until I saw this post :( (:D) congrats and enjoy the lingots.... and I do not hate streak posts they motivate me... I seriously have to try harder now... Congrats!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/da_pusheen

WOW THAT IS AN AWESOME STREAK!!!! I hope one day my streak will be that big!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/tigrismuse

Congratulations on a 666-day streak! For some reason, I can never get past 30 days!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Tom660981

183 for me today. half a year. amazed I've managed to stick with it this long.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Seattle_USA

Congrats! I've never minded them streak announcements.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/A_Sesquipedalian

There is one thing though... ...technically the ‘number of the beast’, as it is known, was originally considered to be 616. As far as I can remember, it is considered to be 666 now due to a mistranslation or something similar to that.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Mal81120

The beast is generally understood to be Nero Caesar, who was the first roman emperor to persecute Cristians.

The Greek form of his name in Hebrew is Nrwn Qsr. Each letter stands for a number. (n = 50, r = 200, w = 6, q = 100, s = 60). Add them up and you get 666. The Latin form of his name in Hebrew is slightly different, it is Nrw Sqr. Those letters add up to 616. People who's regular language was Latin knew it was referring to Nero so they were 'fixing' what they thought was a mistake, and changed the number to 616.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/PERCE_NEIGE

This matter is disputed.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Kelikaku

Congratulations on your
repidigital streak and may
you continue to earn many
more repdigits.

Great topic. Keep up the good work!
Thanks for posting.

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/LaserDuck

Thanks Kelikaku!

By the way, why do you end your comments with בס״ד?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/KevinR86

Let's remember to keep the post about the streak itself and not steer the discussion thread to off its topic.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/GingerSnap04

A 665 day streak is absolutely something to be proud of! Excellent job! Keep it up!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/da_pusheen

It's actually 666 days of just want load in yet :)

I noticed that after I had posted. Lol. Too funny!

Let's demystify the magical luciferian font characters:


ส็็็็็็็็็็็็็็็็็็็

It has a bunch of copies of Unicode Character THAI CHARACTER MAITAIKHU (U+0E47), which is supposed to be rendered so that it goes on top of the character it follows. However, it appears that different Unicode text rendering engines have different ideas about what to do when you have multiple copies of this code point in a row, so rendering is not consistent. Some evidently stack the maitaikhu multiple times, resulting in those funny squiggly lines. Some don't.

ส้้้้้้้้้้้้้้

The reverse angled horn is using Unicode Character THAI CHARACTER MAI THO (U+0E49) to create the same effect in a right leaning angle.


They still make for a fun and unique congratulation by Vu7xENbj

Поздравляю! But the ultimate achievement would be to reach this milestone in Danish on December 11 or June 11. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Devil%27s_Birthday

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/qbeast

Of course not! Ducks are inherently saintly. Nor are the Devil's Birthdays inherently evil. These are just (as a Danish friend told me) the two traditional dates that some rents are due in Denmark.

True

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/tom448450

Congrats. I love this streak thing but it's important to not take it super seriously. In my opinion, it helps you to stay motivated and make practicing and language learning a habit. It becomes the part of your life. It doesn't matter if you practice 10 minutes or 10 hours a day (it's up to you), the point is to not give up and also enjoy what you do.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/ayup-md

how the devil did you manage a streak that long?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/LaserDuck

Dark magic always works


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/babak143903

Молодец! Well done!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/LaserDuck

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/CA-93

Well done! :)


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/aliengeng

That is a long time!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Hannibal-Barkas

are you the streak beast?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/hm437e

YOU certainly have a beastly streak!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/LaserDuck

Your streak is heavenly, sir. You're a day after 777. So close to greatness.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/hm437e

Thank you.

I had responded to someone else's post yesterday (at 777) but it got deleted along with the main thread. I had mentioned the tradition of the "Schappsnummer", where all the numbers are the same.

Here's looking forward to 1111, a mark that a few, including Hannibal, on this discussion thread have already reached. You and I, Ducky, have something to strive for. Let's hope our zeal in learning does not blind us to that little milestone.

Enjoy the ride!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/LaserDuck

That's an interesting word, Schappsnummer. I shall strive for it too, as well as to 1337.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/da_pusheen

YOU RUINED IT!! ITS NOW 672 DAYS THE DEVIL WILL SURE COME FOR YOU NOW YOU MUST RUN AND HIDE BEFORE IT'S TO LATE!!!!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/LaserDuck

If I survive until 777, I might reach salvation and live.


[deactivated user]

    Better not get anymore streaks or else the 666 will be gone


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/LaserDuck

    This is one of my fears as well.

    Maybe I should start Hebrew on Duolingo and aim for 777 although I already speak it. After 777 I will start Korean and aim for 1337.

    Kudos for Beggar's Banquet


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/GlassSlippers

    As in "Sympathy For The Devil" ? UhHuh !
    A rolling stone gathers no moss.
    My personal favorite is "Beast of Burden", but that was about 10 years later. :)


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/StuartTheBrave

    Metal! Congrats :D


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Shadow_Ninja2653

    nice the highest streak i've ever got was around 200.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/SmashCookie

    let's give this guy equal amount of likes, then let's find a Latin speaker and perform a chant to summon a language demon


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/LaserDuck

    Fortunately you can learn Latin on Duolingo for free!

    At least in terms of money


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/John-_-Williams

    Streak posts aren't hated by me. I'm just at 77, but it's getting bigger by the day. Congrats!


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/JackBTS

    Normally I would down vote this kind of post but that really funny. Here's 6 + 6 + 6 lingots because I don't have 666. (;


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/LaserDuck

    Here you go, 666 lingots.

    If someones gives you any more lingots and ruins this perfect 666 they really are worse than the devil.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/JackBTS

    Thanks! LOL (: Very true. Nobody give me lingots!!! Just gave you lingots until I had 666.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Trisfox7

    well done! I've got a 5 day streak ; )

    I gave you two because I have too many

    i do not remember seen a streak post with so many comments guys


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/PERCE_NEIGE

    The one with the 1-day streak was really fun and upvoted too.

    OMG, I think I'll stop and start my streak all over again just for the joy!


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/LaserDuck

    You can aim for 1337 instead. It’s a... great number

    Just need to give you 100 more lingots I would if I wasn't so lazy!!!


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Georgie-Pineda

    Keep it that way forever by freezing your streak!


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/LaserDuck

    I already froze it one day, but it will probably become 667 today.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/__Pilar__

    Good job for the hard work!


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/RodrigoMDi3

    chills up and down spine


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/PerryBunn

    lmao now I have to keep going


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/cartergraysons

    Congrats!! I actually do not mind streak posts as long as they aren't done every single day by the same user (i.e. posting when they get a new streak every day 1, 2, 3, 4, etc etc). Good luck in your languages, Japanese is great and while I don't have any desire to learn Russian, I think it's cool you are learning two script languages at once!! Even I want to learn 5 script languages (Javanese, Sundanese, Tamil, Japanese, and Sundanese) but can't find the time to do them all at once let alone every starting them (I started Javanese and Japanese a bit but quit for a while).


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Itsdeercraft

    great moose milks how do u do it!!!


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/John-_-Williams

    OH NO! YOU RUINED YOUR STREAK! IT IS 667!


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/AmberLeeDe3

    That's cool - congratulations! [I wish the streak tracking was accurate for everyone]
