But this *does*:

Okay, this is stretching things a bit. It certainly sounds fun to say “the first 144 digits of Pi add up to 666” and then go on to show how 144 is a cool number (which it *is*, so is 1440).

But it’s *less* fun to say “the first 144 digits of Pi *except for the first one *add up to 666″, which is the truth here.
