Doesn't every number have to be unique, in the sense that if there were two numbers that were the same, they'd be the same number? (I know I know. Nobody loves a smart-arse.)
Maybe you mean 'what's interesting about that number?' To which I have to confess I haven't a clue.
But interesting numbers also have a similar problem..
Suppose you say 1 is interesting because (pick any interesting fact about the number 1.)....
and then 2 is interesting for some other reason, like it's the only even prime, or something....
And keep going till you get to a number about which you can find nothing interesting to say. Well that's the lowest uninteresting number, which qualifies as interesting, so it isn't an uninteresting number after all.... :wave:
