I know EU well, and it's not going to happen.

Wasn't this a minor plot point in Neon Genesis Evangleion?

But if they had skipped over 666, and made it law umber 667, you'd be totally fine with it?

Hmmm... these are the EU directives #666 for the last 8 years:
- Commission Regulation (EC) No 666/2000 of 30 March 2000 fixing the export refunds on cereals and on wheat or rye flour, groats and meal
- Commission Regulation (EC) No 666/2001 of 2 April 2001 on the supply of split peas as food aid
- Commission Regulation (EC) No 666/2002 of 18 April 2002 fixing the maximum export refund for white sugar for the 35th partial invitation to tender issued within the framework of the standing invitation to tender provided for in Regulation (EC) No 1430/2001
- Commission Regulation (EC) No 666/2003 of 11 April 2003 provisionally authorising the use of certain micro-organisms in feedingstuffs (Text with EEA relevance)
- Commission Regulation (EC) No 666/2004 of 7 April 2004 providing for the rejection of applications for export licences in relation to certain processed products and cereal-based compound feedingstuffs
- Commission Regulation (EC) No 666/2005 of 28 April 2005 fixing production refunds on cereals
- Commission Regulation (EC) No 666/2006 of 28 April 2006 fixing the corrective amount applicable to the refund on cereals
- Commission Regulation (EC) No 666/2007 of 14 June 2007 amending the rates of refunds applicable to certain products from the sugar sector exported in the form of goods not covered by Annex I to the Treaty
- Council Regulation (EC) No 666/2008 of 15 July 2008 amending Regulation (EC) No 889/2005 imposing certain restrictive measures in respect of the Democratic Republic of the Congo
So which one of these are you referring to? Unless there's a clear and immanent threat involving the deployment of split peas and cereals I don't think you really researched it all that well. Hmmm?

I just googled "Emergency Law EU" and all I found were news articles in which the EU had criticized the Egyptian government for recently re-authorizing its "emergency law." I also googled "EU 666 law" and found nothing remotely similar to this. So I guess you read about this in a newspaper that came out of your own ass.
