On the personification of numbers:
- Supposedly, 1 is the loneliest number. But wouldn't 0.5 be half as lonely as 1? And what about poor little 0.00032? He's so lonely that he's hung himself by now.
- 7 is lucky. Then 14 must be twice as lucky, right?
- 13 is unlucky. 26 is twice as unlucky?
- But what about the number 91? 7x13=91. Is 91 13 times luckier than 7 or 7 times more unlucky than 13?
