I really hope this was intended for the “untrue facts” thread.
In Australia we have a beer called “Fat Yak”, who make these cool really-hairy stubby-holders.

At least, I think they’re cool, but my wife has a different opinion. She tried to throw it out once (but I rescued it in time )

42 added to its reverse is 16+61=77.
52 added to its reverse is 25+52=77.

Coincidence, or a revelation of some deep underlying property of mathematics?

That is interesting.

I wonder if one could re-do the number line--with the first "interesting" number being the digit one, pi as 3, and so on...

12. Bonobos do not mate for life.

13. Apparently braille can be written on a computer screen. No one has explained to me precisely why this is.

So that it can be printed using a Braille embosser.
Braille books need typesetting. After checking the text in a conventional font, the typesetter converts to Braille and does layout adjustments that meet the usability requirements of the blind reader. It's particularly useful if you're trying to lay out text in both printed characters and Braille, which is common.

The Pilgrims landed at Plymouth Rock in 1620, the first world war started in 1914, and the 1620th composite number is 1914. Coincidence, or centuries long conspiracy?

21. There are 193 members of the United Nations. England has invaded 171 of them.

22. The Japanese casual expression of gratitude, "arigato" is derived from the Portuguese "obrigado."

23. Sylvia Kristel's character in the 1980 film "The Nude Bomb" was named Agent 34.

24. Chip Wilson, founder of the clothing line Lululemon, coined the name because he thought it would be fun to hear Japanese people trying to pronounce it.

14,014,140 is probably the smallest positive integer for which each of its powers (itself, its square, its cube, its fourth power, etc) has no unique digits. That is, any digit appearing in such a number appears in it at last twice.

I haven't checked every power of this number but I checked up to the 150th power without finding an exception, and its 150th power has 1080 digits. I know there's no smaller such number because I checked 1 to 14,014,139.

26. This is one of those moments when the evidence is there but the proof hasn't been found yet. Given the history of mathematics, we may get it in a few centuries.

To push things along, Chuck just needs to post, “The proof is straightforward, but I don’t have time to show it now.” (And never post a proof.)

That worked for Fermat.

The number of the beast and an imminent year have exactly the same five digits in their prime factorizations.

666 = 2 × 3 × 3 × 37
2022 = 2 × 3 × 337

Coincidence, or the end of the world is near?
