Having got curious about the mathematical properties of the number 23, I started exploring and here’s what I found interesting from what I have seen on the web:

- 23 is the smallest prime number with consecutive digits.
- 23! is 23 digits long.
- 23 = 1
^{4}+ 2^{3}+ 3^{2}+ 4^{1}+ 5^{0} - 10
^{23}– 23 = 99,999,999,999,999,999,999,977 is the largest 23 digit prime. - According to the birthday paradox, in a group of 23 (or more) randomly chosen people, the probability is more than 50% that some pair of them will have the same birthday (are we not coming to the topic now ?!!)

**Oh by the way, Happy XXIII ^{rd} to me** ðŸ™‚

“Dad, I am feeling sleepy, lets go home !”, shrieked the little girl, barely aged 4, to divert her father’s attention from the nearby door. “Wait Dear! We will go soon”, replied the young man who is getting impatient every passing minute. He knows what he is waiting for, but little did that poor girl realize that they are waiting for a genius (ahem!) to arrive in this world !

P.S: While the characters in the above story are real, the incidents are entirely my imagination. Except of course the ‘genius’ part of it ðŸ˜€
