    BUCHAREST (AFP) - Security measures have been strengthened in Romanian cemeteries as authorities feared Satanists could use the date 06/06/06, evoking the so-called "number of the beast", to stage attacks.

    "Given the significance this date could have for some, we decided to double the number of agents assigned to protecting 16 public cemeteries in Bucharest," the director of the bureau of cemeteries, George Georgescu, told AFP.

    Although the number of public watchmen was doubled to about 600, "no profanation or any other incident" that could have been attributed to Satanist groups was recorded Monday night, Georgescu said Tuesday.

    "We remain vigilant because we have faced acts of vandalism in the past, in which a dozen crosses in two Bucharest cemeteries were knocked over in a single night," he said.

    Similar measures were adopted in other Romanian towns and according to the media some priests will be holding special masses to "fight off Satan".

    one of the fairways prolly had a 25-30 degree grade, we would get ice blocks and put a towel on top and slide down.....but the hills natural curve innevitably steered ya into a tree so ya usually had to bail out before you stopped sliding.
