Most people have a favorite number or at least a number with higher recurrence than others. For me, it’s 7. The number I so overuse. Seven has become my default arbitrary value, if there’s such a thing.

I… favor certain set of numbers. Certain numbers make me feel at ease while some made me feel slightly uneasy. I can control these feelings so there is no point flashing the number ’9′ at me to piss me off.
I wonder if any one else has the same feeling when they look at numbers. I like 2, 5, 7, 12 and 1024 in particular. No, I did not like 1024 because it’s 2**10 (two to the power of ten). I like the number before I even had a computer. Hmmmp, could it be destiny?
