Your lucky number: 7
I also fell into the pitfall of Halo through high school and college and there’s a whole mythology around it that’s continued well into the 343 era.
4 8 15 16 23 42
I like ℵ^0 because it annoys Maths nerds.
I’ve never even seen it! I got the set up once but didn’t get my cut.
Graham’s number, a Googolplex is tiny in comparison

That’s so cool
The reason is it pleases the way I think about many mathematical manipulation. It is difficult to really explain why. But among the many reason :
Isn’t 1 the first non-prime integer?
1 is not a prime number
Why are thirds important to you?
So you like the number 171 122 452 428 141 311 372 468 338 881 272 839 092 270 544 893 520 369 393 648 040 923 257 279 754 140 647 424 000 000 000 000 000?
e to the power of 2 times i times pi is one of the best numbers.
Not only for its great multiplicative properties, but also its applications all across math and physics. It’s an easy number to work with, and always a pleasure to encounter. It gets used quite a lot in programming, too.
Oh, I forgot to mention: there’s also a great Three Dog Night song named for this number :)
I like numbers in general. I don’t really have a favorite.
I’ve always taken a particular liking to the number 5. I think it’s because it feels even, despite not being even, by virtue of being right in the middle between 1 and 10
I don’t have a favorite number, why would I have one? Some numbers that are used for cryptography are pretty cool I guess.
