    I quite like 9801, because 1/9801 = 0.000102030405...9596979900010203...

    This reminds me of when I was walking to the station to meet my boyfriend and a guy came up to me and said "My favourite number is 5. Now you know my number, can I have yours?" Awks..

    Is it strange that I don't have a favourite number/colour? I just view them as different and don't prefer one over the other.

    No it's not strange. If I haven't been told my lucky number I wouldn't have one. I just stick to that number because I can't think of anything else.

    Here's some more, then: it actually works for any inverse of a square of a 999... number.

    9801 is 992 , and 1/9801 generates all the two-digit numbers but 98, as I've already shown.

    81 is 92, and 1/81 = 0.0123456790123...

    1/9992 is 1/998001, and generates all the 3-digit numbers except for 998.

    The golden ratio:

    \phi = \dfrac{1+ \sqrt{5}}{2}

    Love  \pi and e as well.

    And the Euler-Mascheroni constant:

    \displaystyle \gamma = \lim_{n \rightarrow \infty} \left( \sum_{1 \leqslant k \leqslant n} \dfrac{1}{k} - \ln n\right) = 0.577...

    I know, right?

    I think I may be overthinking this a little bit, though; everybody else seems to have favourite numbers like "3" and "7".

    It's like they've got rational favourite numbers for mostly irrational reasons, and I have irrational favourite numbers for fairly rational reasons - they're just really cool.

    Indeed!

    No you're not! It's nice to different from everyone. I've got a reason for mine but I'm not willing to share it. I don't think anyone will understand it really. It's more of a tribute thing.

    They are really cool indeed. Something a little different which I haven't seen before.
