The Number 23

Recommended Posts

Wasn't quite as bas as I'd expected (from the trailer it looked like Fisher Price's 'My First Number Movie' compared to Pi/A Beautiful Mind and so on). It kind of drifts in and out of a ridiculous film Nior story in the same vein as Sin City but towards the end when he's solving the puzzle it does get perk up a bit. Pretty silly twist ending in the style of M. Night Shyamalan but it does all make sense, but mostly because - in true hollywood style - it's all nicely explained for you.

It's quite interesting to read about the number 23, and in the film there are heaps of background references to it, but don't take it too seriously.

Probably worthy of a 6/10

i just love the tenous link to 23 in the magazien adverts.

it includes the classic 9 + 11 + 2001 = 23

now, i hate to point out the obvious, but does it fuck.

9 + 11 + 2001 = 2021

9 + 1 + 1 + 2 + 0 + 0 + 1 = 14

Twats.

This is a terrible movie, but unintentionally hilarious. I ended up laughing through most of it.

I guess that's what you get when you put Jim Carrey in a movie that doesn't involve (or at least isn't supposed to involve) pratfalls, toilet jokes and face pulling.

Let's face it peeps - the cunt might be funny (if you're 12-14), but he canny act worth a fuck.

Here's what Wikipedia had to say about The Number 23...

Twenty-three is the ninth prime number, the smallest odd prime which is not a twin prime. Twenty-three is also the fifth factorial prime, the second Woodall prime, and the second Smarandache-Wellin prime. It is an Eisenstein prime with no imaginary part and real part of the form 3n − 1.

The fifth Sophie Germain prime and the fourth safe prime, 23 is the next to last member of the first Cunningham chain of the first kind to have five terms (2, 5, 11, 23, 47). Since 14! + 1 is a multiple of 23 but 23 is not one more than a multiple 14, 23 is a Pillai prime. 23 is the smallest odd prime to be a highly cototient number, as the solution to x - φ(X) for the integers 95, 119, 143, 529.

23 also has the distinction of being one of two integers that cannot be expressed as the sum of fewer than 9 cubes of integers (the other is 239). See Waring's problem.

23 is a Wedderburn-Etherington number and the sixth happy number.

The codewords in the perfect (non-extended) binary Golay code are of size 23.

In the binary numeral system, 23 is the smallest prime having a composite sum of digits

...have your ever read such PISH in all your life. Do think any of these geeks ever get shagged? How do they procreate?

Michty!
