Why is there a Wikipedia page for 313 but not for 314?

Recommended Posts

Exhibit A:

 

http://en.wikipedia....13_%28number%29

 

 

Exhibit B:

 

http://en.wikipedia....14_%28number%29

 

 

 

This troubles me, on multiple levels.

 

Because it is related to many prime factors of numbers?

 

BitBuster, please slow down on the number of new topics. Thanks.

Should we get into the "no such thing as a 'least interesting number'" debate? ;)

 

As long as you make no more new topics. It's exhausting.

 

The thing is, not every number is important or Wiki worthy. 313 is an area cube, just like 666 is the number of the devil. I have no idea why, but a number is just a number in the end.

There are a lot of little things about Wikipedia that make me chuckle. With luck, this thread will digress into discussing some of them.

 

 

 

 

http://en.wikipedia....07_%28number%29

 

http://en.wikipedia....08_%28number%29

 

http://en.wikipedia....09_%28number%29

 

http://en.wikipedia....10_%28number%29

 

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/211_%28number%29

 

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/212_%28number%29

 

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/213_%28number%29

 

 

 

I would totally do this for every number up to a googol, were I to be paid for the task (and were my lifespan to be extended accordingly).

Maybe there should be a thread that lists all the threads on CC Zone that list lists of lists...

 

 

 

Or not.

 

I will make a stickied topic on finding specific levels and levelsets as an index/contents guide sometime.

That's why the page is named as such. ;)

 

I think you missed my point. On the list of lists page, there should be lists. But some of those "lists" are "lists of lists" as well. So the redundancy continues....

A list of lists is also still a list. The list of lists of lists is also still a list, so any pages listing lists should also list lists of lists as well as the list of lists of lists. (But then we would have self-containing sets, causing the axioms of ZFC to crumble away and the universe to be turned into a black pit of doom and despair*...I take this post back.)

and other things of that nature beginning with the letter d

Oh man...I miss SuperDave!

 

I think it was actually "Death, doom, and destruction" as the things that began with the letter "d," though. :)

I love the way this thread is going!

 

Now all we need is one of those "infinite rotating painting" .gifs. (Y)
