Default Deja Vu: Talking Time's Top 50 Numbers - Voting ROUND 2!

Hi everyone, and welcome to the second Round of voting for talking time's top 50 numbers. In the first round we had 24 lists submitted with 252 unique numbers listed. Very cool! Now, though, it's time to talk about the best of the best with Round 2.

Below will be a list of the top 146 numbers. To get on this list, a number had to earn at least 25 points (that is, at a minimum it had to be in someone's top 10). So as not to give anything else away, the numbers are ranked in numerical order. Constants have been translated to their numerical values or a close approximation wherever possible. Scientific notation has been used where it makes sense. A few numbers are best expressed with descriptions or names, and those appear as needed. A few numbers are outside the scope of traditional numerical order, and thus appear at the end of the list. If you'd like a constant to be labeled more explicitly, please let me know.

If you don't know what a number is or what it signifies and want to learn more, I might suggest asking around or using the all-knowing Bing search engine upon which we all rely daily.

Round 2 Voting Rules

  • If you still like your original votes after seeing this list, Great, you don't have to do anything. I will roll over your first round of voting to the second round.
  • If you did not vote in Round 1, you may still submit a list to me in the Round 2. Pick your Top 25 numbers per the rules in this post.
  • If you would like to change your Round 1 votes, send me a new pm with your entire list as you'd like to see it. To be totally clear, your new list will completely replace your previous list; I will only use the most recent version of a submitter's list in calculating the final titles.
  • Final scoring for Round 2 will consist of any lists carried over from Round 1, plus any new lists, plus any revised lists that replaced Round 1 lists. Thus, any number has a chance to rank in the top 50, it just needs enough points in Round 2.
  • You may lobby for any number on or not on this list in this thread. Play favorites. Make your case. Yell at people who think pi is cool. Good luck.


All Round 2 lists must be PMed to Bulgakov by 11:59pm Mountain Time on Wednesday, January 2nd


Finally, one big clarification:

IT IS TOTALLY POSSIBLE FOR A NUMBER NOT ON THE LIST BELOW TO MAKE IT TO THE FINAL LIST.

Being on the list in Round 1 is not a requirement to be on the list in Round 2. You might need to alter your votes and/or lobby some other folks, but if you love -20 (or any other number) and are sad it didn't show up below, all it would take is a few interested parties pushing for it.

Without further ado, here is the list:

I can figure out some of these numbers but many of them could stand for all sorts of things.

The number of the BEAT?

I don't know if BEAT submitted a list, but this looks like something he might submit.

If I vote in the first round but not the second, my first round votes are counted for the second round, correct?

That is correct! You will have the exact same votes in round 2 unless you submit a new list.

It has been brought to my attention that many of you apparently celebrated holidays both this week and the previous week. As a result, you MAY have not been thinking much about Numbers which may have led to a low level of second-round submissions.

In the spirit of numerical kindness, I am extending the deadline for second round lists to this Friday, 1/4/19 at 11:59pm Mountain Time. This is your last opportunity to vote for the numbers you love and crave!
