Something interesting! Not really a joke ... just a tiny bit of math fun. 142857 is a cyclic number - its digits always appear in the same order but will rotate around when multiplied by any number from 1 to 6: 142857 x 1 = 142857 142857 x 2 = 285714 142857 x 3 = 428571 142857 x 4 = 571428 142857 x 5 = 714285 142857 x 6 = 857142 Pretty cool, huh? Now multiply 142857 by 7
