And that's just for starters. I will have more to say about these dastardly digits in due course.

sionnach commented on the word 142,857

A most magickal and splendiferous number.

For consider:

1 times 142,857

2 times 142,857

3 times 142,857

4 times 142,857

5 times 142,857

6 times 142,857

Ponder and wonder!

And, of course, 7 times 142,857 is just 999,999.

And that's just for starters. I will have more to say about these dastardly digits in due course.
