Greatest Number Ever (73)
Hey everyone,
just wanted to put it out there that 73 is by far the greatest number, and here's why;
73 is the largest minimal Primitive root in the first 100000 primes.
73 is the smallest prime congruent to 1 modulo 24.
The mirror of 73, the 21st prime number, 37, is the 12th prime number. The number 21 includes factors 7 and 3.
Every positive integer is the sum of at most 73 sixth powers.
In base 5, the smallest prime with a composite sum of digits is 73.
73 is the only prime repunit in base 8.
73 is the smallest factor of the first composite generalized Fermat number in base 10.
Seventythree in binary ,1001001, is a palindrome. In addition, of the 7 binary digits representing 73, there are 3 ones.
37+12=49 (seven squared) and 73+21=94=47*2, 47+2 also being equal to seven squared. The double of 21 is Fortytwo.
In Morse code, 73 is also a palindrome (··· ···).
Just wanted to see if anyone thought differently?

Re: Greatest Number Ever (73)
72 is actually creepy, how much it comes up.
For example, did you know that there were originally 72 names on the Eiffel tower, of the people who worked on it?

I respect you for the BBT refference.
But 42, man. I keep seeing it everywhere. I'm gonna start taking pictures to prove I'm not insane.

Re: Greatest Number Ever (73)
I'm going to disagree. Euler's number is by far the best.

Re: Greatest Number Ever (73)
I don't know, 21 is pretty cool:
3*7=21
21 is half of 42
21 is a Fibonacci number
Changes of seasons tend to occur on the 21st
Proposed ends of the world tend to be on the 21st (e.g. May 21, 2011; December 21, 2012)
21 is 1+2+3+4+5+6
In binary, 21 is 10101. In base 3, 21 is 210. In base 4, 21 is 111.
Also, my birthday's month and day add up to 21, so there's sentimental value there.

Or, you could just say 21 is triangular.
Oh, and phi is the coolest number.

The numbers 4 and 58 seem to follow me around for some weird reason...
