It's called "dos mil seiscientos sesenta y seis" in Spanish. It's both a number and a date in Spanish and it sounds imposing and apocalyptic. We don't really do that retarded Anglo thing of splitting year numbers in two. I'm sorry the coolness doesn't translate into your language.

"I, Robot" is such a good title that it was used for two completely unrelated scifi works. Asimov's publisher ripped off the title of an Eando Binder story because they assumed nobody would care.
