I have a math degree. The first two years involved a lot of number crunching (the latter two years involved highly abstract proofs).
I have spent hours pouring over numbers. Integers. Rationals. Irrationals. Complex. Transcendentals. You name it.
A favourite number is 18. Mostly because I was born on the 18th. My Dad was too, as were some close friends, including Jess: Happy Birthday!
Factoid: the word "life" in Hebrew is made of two letters, whose numeric sum total to 18.
