hi

I wondered what other interesting and probably famous sequences of numbers you know.

I bet evryone knows the Fibonacci Sequences: The first two numbers are 1. Every number after that is the sum of the preceding two numbers.

(1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, 89)

any suggestions???

On the ABC TV show "LOST," these numbers are the numbers with which one of the survivors wins a \$160,000,000 lottery.

These numbers show up all throughout the season (48 survivors - 4 and 8; the doctor was in row 23 of the plane; the fugitive was turned in for a \$23,000 reward; it was flight 815 - 8 and 15)

No one knows the logic (except the writer)
