I'm feeling a bit giddy today, so rather than do my timesheet, I'd like to try a game.

Counting up from 1, and including only natural numbers, think of something interesting about each number.

1 is interesting because multiplying by it has no effect

2 is interesting because it's the only even prime

3 is interesting because it's the sum of the two numbers before it

Tell me something interesting about 4, then 5, etc. For a very loose interpretation of "interesting".

(This is sparked off by a proof that there are no uninteresting numbers)
