12 definitely, when I was a little kid I made a paper airplane and I wrote random numbers on its wings, I then decide that adding up these numbers will result in my lucky number, I wrote the numbers:8,2 and 5 and because I was a dumb 3 or 4 year old I thought that adding them up resulted in 12 and so it became my lucky number

I think 12 is my favourite because that's how high they counted in Sesame Street songs like pinball one and the ladybugs' picnic. Always so exciting when the pinball number was 12!

I’ve joked that I’m going to raise my child believing that base 12 is actually the universal number system. It is not turning out that way. Probably good.

I remember having a meltdown in Kindergarten because I couldn’t write my 8’s neatly. My dad suggested that I just draw two circles on top of each other to make it easier but I was convinced that was lame.

Woah, that is an extremely interesting pattern. Especially since 2/7 = 2 * 1/7, and etc. I wonder if that's a unique pattern. There's bound to be an interesting proof for that behaviour.

I love and hate this number, it's very weird to explain but for some reason I never had one best friend, in truth I wanted a close friend, just one, but everytime I got one, another also came, so every time my friend circles were 3 people or more, never managed to have only 1, thus never had a deep connection to a friend (which I wanted bc I had friends that had best friends and walked in duos and I wanted that too)

Surprised this isn’t more people’s favorite honestly. It’s my favorite because my favorite soccer player was 9 growing up. Now that I am older, I notice most “star” players are 9 in soccer.

The reason 9 is my favorite is because, at least for the first 9 digits, 9 times whatever number always will equal 9 when you add the number in the ten's place and one's place together. For example, 9x3=27. 2+7=9. 9x6=54. 5+4=9. Also, 9 times X will also have X-1 as the number in the ten's place.

This number is iconic in my life. In my birthday I have four 9’s. When I was a kid my number in sports was always 9. I also prefer odd numbers over even.

When I was a kid my crummy bike hit a patch of gravel and staked the handlebars vertically, causing me to get jabbed in the chest by the bare metal pipe of the handlebar on my way down. It scraped downward and left a gnarly number 9, which scarred my chest for a few years before it faded. I really wish I still had that scar.

No joke, I really liked 69 as a kid because I liked how it looked, it’s pleasing to the eye. Then one day I told my mom, and she yelled at me asking if it was a joke and telling me I can’t say that, then explaining that it was naughty. So ever since then I have changed my favorite number to 96.

my cousin helped me make a screen name when I was younger. he asked me for my favorite fruit and put “swt” in front of it then asked me for a number. I noticed an abundance of 69s when watching them talk on aim so to be different I chose 96! oh to be young again..

SAME Our teacher asked us what our favourite numbers were one time and when I said "69" half the class exploded and the teacher sent me to the principal's office. Long story short, they didn't believe when I said I didn't know and I got a 2 day suspension.

It's just... a nice perfect number. Good to round by, makes a nice little crown when you have 5 items, and the default tick mark group size. Makes my brain feel nice lol

I was scrolling down to find this. I don't really have a reason but I love number 5, and it's been present in important places in my life several times, so I feel linked to it. But I don't think of it as a lucky number.

Thought I was gonna be alone in this one! 2 just seems to be just the right amount of almost everything, imo. I also see 2 and 22 everywhere in my life, for some reason. My school bus, locker number, apt number, employee ID number, etc. I'm always 2 or 22

11 because when I was younger, I would go “dad I have a question”. And my dad would say “the answer is 11”. And he would joke the answer to everything is 11

I still, even this many years later, read that number as "leet" and remember typing out so much 13375p34k and feeling so cool. I remember signing off from some online games "gg, may the 1337 be with j00" non-ironically. What a flashback! Thanks for the nostalgia.

Mine too. I would see it everywhere. Like when I look at a clock it would be something:11 Or 11 seconds left on the microwave. I once met a girl online who said that she noticed 11 a lot too and she happen to have the same birthday as me.

The best number is 73. Why? 73 is the 21st prime number. Its mirror, 37, is the 12th and its mirror, 21, is the product of multiplying 7 and 3... In binary 73 is a palindrome, 1001001, which backwards is 1001001.

3.14159 this is pi followed by 2653589 circumference over diameter 79323 omg cant u see 8462643 and now we’re on a spree 38 & 32 now we’re blue oh who knew 7950 and then a 2, 88 and 41, so much fun, now a run 971693993751 etc

21. 3 7's is jackpot and added up they make 21. 21 is also the highest score in Blackjack/21. My elementary school bus was also 21. Just seems like a number that's been present a lot in my life.

4. But I despise the number 9. It thinks it’s so much better than the numbers below it because it’s the only single digit that’s closest to the number 10. Arrogant bastard.

12 definitely, when I was a little kid I made a paper airplane and I wrote random numbers on its wings, I then decide that adding up these numbers will result in my lucky number, I wrote the numbers:8,2 and 5 and because I was a dumb 3 or 4 year old I thought that adding them up resulted in 12 and so it became my lucky number

Wow that's a fun backstory!

12 is mine as well! Twelve is a cool word and I was born in December.

I think 12 is my favourite because that's how high they counted in Sesame Street songs like pinball one and the ladybugs' picnic. Always so exciting when the pinball number was 12!

12 is also really cool bc it has a lot of factors, instead of being taught to count in tens we should be counting in twelves

TWELVE TWELEVE TWELVE

12's also significant in most cultures; with things like the zodiac, 12 disciples, and the Greek pantheon.

I’ve joked that I’m going to raise my child believing that base 12 is actually the universal number system. It is not turning out that way. Probably good.

Same I was born on 12/12

12 is the highest number with only one syllable

8

∞

7

Woah, that is an extremely interesting pattern. Especially since 2/7 = 2 * 1/7, and etc. I wonder if that's a unique pattern. There's bound to be an interesting proof for that behaviour.

Can I interest you in a slightly improved version? Try 37 on for size, take it around the block, see how it suits you.

3…

Is the magic number

My favorite number too!!!

…is a magic number!

I love and hate this number, it's very weird to explain but for some reason I never had one best friend, in truth I wanted a close friend, just one, but everytime I got one, another also came, so every time my friend circles were 3 people or more, never managed to have only 1, thus never had a deep connection to a friend (which I wanted bc I had friends that had best friends and walked in duos and I wanted that too)

27

It's the perfect cube!!!!!! 3^3 = 27

its satisfying to look at for me

I don't know why, but I love 27 too. It looks like it should be a prime, but it's not.

What a legend. Or should I say, the legend.

42

The answer to life, the universe, and everything.

Shouldn't have had to dig so far for this.

Yes, I hear that is how many roads a man must walk down.

9

Was beginning to think I was the only one!

This is my favorite single digit number!

Surprised this isn’t more people’s favorite honestly. It’s my favorite because my favorite soccer player was 9 growing up. Now that I am older, I notice most “star” players are 9 in soccer.

It's an odd number that feels like an even number ☺️

The reason 9 is my favorite is because, at least for the first 9 digits, 9 times whatever number always will equal 9 when you add the number in the ten's place and one's place together. For example, 9x3=27. 2+7=9. 9x6=54. 5+4=9. Also, 9 times X will also have X-1 as the number in the ten's place.

Let’s gooooo I knew I wasn’t alone

No joke, I really liked 69 as a kid because I liked how it looked, it’s pleasing to the eye. Then one day I told my mom, and she yelled at me asking if it was a joke and telling me I can’t say that, then explaining that it was naughty. So ever since then I have changed my favorite number to 96.

Change it to 88, since you get 8 twice

The Zodiac sign for Cancer is literally a “69” turned on its side, so you’re not the first!

With the 96, you’re just like that one bettor from Squid Game!

96 is a good number

Which is just 69 for fart fetish folk.

my cousin helped me make a screen name when I was younger. he asked me for my favorite fruit and put “swt” in front of it then asked me for a number. I noticed an abundance of 69s when watching them talk on aim so to be different I chose 96! oh to be young again..

5. Always has been. Well, since my 5th birthday, anyway.

It's just... a nice perfect number. Good to round by, makes a nice little crown when you have 5 items, and the default tick mark group size. Makes my brain feel nice lol

I was scrolling down to find this. I don't really have a reason but I love number 5, and it's been present in important places in my life several times, so I feel linked to it. But I don't think of it as a lucky number.

Found my people

Did that number turn out how you expect?

Same

2

Me 2, no idea why, just always has been. Plus for some odd reason when I played sports I was almost always 2

Thought I was gonna be alone in this one! 2 just seems to be just the right amount of almost everything, imo. I also see 2 and 22 everywhere in my life, for some reason. My school bus, locker number, apt number, employee ID number, etc. I'm always 2 or 22

17

Same! It’s the funniest number.

I scrolled through the comments to find this

Hmm 🤨 me too??

I consider this to be the most common "random" number.

LLJ❤️

23

Team 23!

Definitely didn’t think I’d have to scroll so far for this one but, same!

Me too!

Ayyy let's go

All numbers are allowed, real, complex, any base, transcendental, physical constants, anything.

Well, since we are allowing more than just numbers, here are three more beyond the e2πi/7 earlier:

It’s still 81. Don’t you try to woo me you fucker.

6

6 here, reporting

I hate that this number is demonized so much 😂

13

Hi Chucky 👋

I got terrible luck. It's only fitting that I like this number. Half for the joke, half because it just feels right lol

Same here. Born on Friday the 13th

Do you like the letter B too? Because it looks like q scrunched up 13? Mitch hedberg

11/22

I had to scroll forever to find 11

Aye that’s my birthday!

I’m more of a 0.5 guy myself

14. It just seems nice.

16, i used to play in it

Mine!! Scrolled to find this!

7 because its lucky

Unless you're in China, there 8 is the luckiest.

I once won $77 on a raffle ticket 777. Figured they may be something to it after that.

I like em odd, and I like em prime. 7 is also my favorite!

I agree.

21. Don’t know why

Love 21. Blackjack. Birthdate. Important number in USA. Unique and fun in general tbh.

Well, any even number is fine to me, but i find number "4" appealing for some reason.

4's got something about it

4 is my favorite

Same here.

4 sounds like “death” in Chinese

13 or 3583. Those were my great grandfathers lucky numbers and they’re mine too

Interesting those are the last 4 of my cell number lol

4 or 44 but even better 444

444 looks like 3 headless guys pooping in a line

So you are not Chinese.

Hear me out… 4444

4 fucks. I've had 4 as my favourite number all my life.

How could you miss on the best one: 4444

44 for me. And i gave you the 44th upvote.

Three. Because “Three is the magic numberrr”

Yes it is! It's a magic number.

33

8008135

5318008

222, whenever I see it, I like the look of numbers, especially time, 12:34 and 11:11 bring me joy

19 or 5

I’m curious. 19 is one of my favorite numbers too. May I inquire as to why it’s one of your favorites?

Scrolled too far to find 19

99 because 100 is too much and 98 just isn't enough

3, or -3. Really anything to do with 3

13, my favorite basketball player's number

23

11 because when I was younger, I would go “dad I have a question”. And my dad would say “the answer is 11”. And he would joke the answer to everything is 11

1337

I still, even this many years later, read that number as "leet" and remember typing out so much 13375p34k and feeling so cool. I remember signing off from some online games "gg, may the 1337 be with j00" non-ironically. What a flashback! Thanks for the nostalgia.

3, it always has been.

Got a favorite band by chance

18

7, then 12, then 23.

Team 23!

1000000000000066600000000000001

867-5309

I use it sometimes at gas stations for rewards and I’ve gotten like 10 cent a gallon off.

Hahaha I came here to say this!

I saw Tommy 2 tone like 15 years ago. It was amazing.

11

Me too! This has been my lucky number since I can remember

Mine too. I would see it everywhere. Like when I look at a clock it would be something:11 Or 11 seconds left on the microwave. I once met a girl online who said that she noticed 11 a lot too and she happen to have the same birthday as me.

Me too! I married my husband on 11/11/11

70,000

Why?

1

25!

Is that 25, or 25 factorial? Either way, 25 is a very satisfying number.

25 is funnier than 24

Mine too! ☺️

12

4 or 13

13 becuase people fear it.

They do? I was pretty scary at 13 (off ADHD meds)

The best number is 73. Why? 73 is the 21st prime number. Its mirror, 37, is the 12th and its mirror, 21, is the product of multiplying 7 and 3... In binary 73 is a palindrome, 1001001, which backwards is 1001001.

37. Prime, the digits are prime and add up to 10. Plus it just feels sharp.

4 8 15 16 23 42

666 baby! Embrace the darkness.

13.

I'm just commenting before you get hammered with people thinking they are funny by saying 69 or 420.

69, hahahah

3.14159265358979323846264338

3.14159 this is pi followed by 2653589 circumference over diameter 79323 omg cant u see 8462643 and now we’re on a spree 38 & 32 now we’re blue oh who knew 7950 and then a 2, 88 and 41, so much fun, now a run 971693993751 etc

19

19 all day!

43 dont have a reason just like it

43 Is a good solid Prime.

8

4. Idk why, I just like 4

3

37?

4 cause that's how many months I have left being a teacher

You doin all right, friend?

24, 42 and 48! Any even numbers except for 6, I don’t like 6..

21. 3 7's is jackpot and added up they make 21. 21 is also the highest score in Blackjack/21. My elementary school bus was also 21. Just seems like a number that's been present a lot in my life.

28

11. I was born on 11/11 in room 11 at 11 minutes to 11. And i was 5lbs 6oz too

3. It’s the perfect number. Also like 33, because it’s 2 3’s.

49, sure it has something to do with my childhood

11 or 29

i

How about i^i (i to the power of i), which = e^-pi/2

777

7. Most of my siblings' birthdays and mine were born on a date that is a multiple of 7, 7 kids. Seems to be an angel number for us.

Yours 😏

What a coincidence! My favourite number is yours as well 😏😏

4. But I despise the number 9. It thinks it’s so much better than the numbers below it because it’s the only single digit that’s closest to the number 10. Arrogant bastard.

e2πi/7

That sounds very interesting, I will certainly have to look into that. Do you have a good explanation document / video or something?

Your moms number

My mom’s favorite number is 2 because it’s the size of your dick in inches

117

20

71

97 Which is coincidentally how many comments there were when I wrote this.

13

1134206. If you type it in a calculator and turn it around it says go 2 hell

1010

13 and 65

Chaitin's constant

4

4 & 7

16 because if you say 16 in icelandic it sounds like sextown 😁

33
