Default My Number is, in fact, more interesting!

Since creating numbers so big you can't store them in the universe is actually kind of trivial, let's find some interesting numbers.

A number's interesting-ness is based on the number of properties it has.

Let's start with 1:

Lowest odd, positive number.
Lowest non-prime odd number.
Identity for multiplication.
Positive Integer.

if you want, you can add more properties to previous numbers, providing you can source their existence.

note: being 'very large' is not interesting.

12

-is in fact a way better base for a number system than ten, owing to it having more factors.
-is ten plus two
-I didn't read the first post until after I posted this
-I'm going to keep adding these until it has a semblance of legitimacy
-and I'm good.

0.

- You can't divide by it, only take limits as things approach it.
- Is a number (which means it beats infinity)
- Is arguably the most even number (even-ness is usually defined by a number being divisible by two, producing an integer (0 can be divided by two an infinite amount of times and still be even, 2 can only do so once.)
- Is the same whether it's positive, negative, real or complex.
- Belongs to the Mandelbrot set, arguably the most famous fractal pattern in the world.
- Is integral to the operation of many calculus functions. (See what I did there :V)
- A number to the power of 0 is always one, except for one such number, 0 itself.
- Is the mass of light, the fastest thing in the universe.
- The Romans didn't include it in their number system, and look at what happened to them. They are dead now. Clearly 0 is a vindictive number, which will kill you if you cross it.
- On the subject of crossing 0, zero-crossing is a useful method for finding frequencies in waveform inputs, such as sound on a microphone.
- Seriously, 0 is the best.
- I definitely am not being held hostage.
- You guys should just give up, 0 is definitely the best number.
- Is that enough?

2^57,885,161 − 1
: The Largest Known Prime
: The Largest Mersenne Prime
: since
2^57,885,161 − 1 is a mersenne prime it can generate a perfect number like this 2^57885160(2^57885161-1)

Isn't that even, meaning it's divisible by 2, therefor not a prime?

Poor formatting. (2 to the 57,885,161th power) − 1.
