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.
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.

Let's demystify the magical luciferian font characters:
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.
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
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.
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!
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).
