The Year 1977 was the year before 1985 and after 1970. It was supposed to be the year of the Beast. If you take the sum of each digit and subtract the number 16 you get 18, which divide by 3 equals 6. This is the number of the Beast. But the Beast is a big jelly bear that escaped from some highly secured candy experiment run by the Craft Foot consortium, and has then apparently been observed occasionally by different placed around the globe. The jelly team of National Geographic is now tracked the Beast thing.
