    LoL, intersting find.
    What will people say if they hear that I'm a Jesus freak?
    What will people do if they find that it's true?
    I don't really care if they label me a Jesus freak, there is no disguising the truth!

    Yep, very interesting. :-)

    And it will take 2002 years to reach the next year which number is the same backwards as forwards and when divided by 2 it's result is also such a number.

    1001 * 2 = 2002
    2002 * 2 = 4004

    Further, the square root of the sum of the digits of 2002 results in the smallest prime number.

    No... there's 2222, 2442, 2662, 2882, 3003, 3223, 3443, 3663, and 3883 before then.

    >>Paraguay

    Or Uraguay??

    We should get a team in the premier league, full of only Aussies. Lets buy Elton's team.

    Ah, well I was too fast with posting. But 3003, 3223, 3443, 3663, and 3883 cannot be divided by 2 without getting into decimals. ;-)

    Let's say it a different/better way: Exactly over 2002 years from now there is a year which is
    1. backwards the same as forwards
    2. which has also 2 zeros in the middle
    3. which is also even
    4. which first and last digits are the squares of the first and last
    digits of 2002
    5. etc...

    Well, I could go on with writing more points, but it is quite useless I think. I've got some better things to do. Though 2002 is a very very interesting number.

    The Netherlands won't be present on the world cup this year, a pity... But Argentina is and I hope that it will become world champion. Since next month, our crown-prince and future king is going to merry an Argentina lady.

    Yes, that is true. The Dutch are always such a colorfull people when it comes to supporting their team. Always a good atmosphere(sp?) hup Holland hup. But Shiro, aren't you going to support your southern neighbours
    Belgium will win the world cup
