NUMB3RS


When I saw the headline to this article on Digg, I thought one of the following had to be true:
  • This Digg "Top Ten" thing has gone too far.
  • This has to be a joke, you can't possibly rank numbers. That would be dumber than ranking U.S. currency.
Well, I was wrong on both counts. When the guy started throwing out "canonicality" and giving props to 1729 for being the third Carmichael number, I figured he was dead serious. And while nearly all of this is way over my head, it was a pretty entertaining read. I kind of dug it.

Now having stated that I have no grasp whatsoever on the content, I still must cry foul for not including 1 (preferably in the top 5) or 5318008 (for my elementary school calculator wizards).
