Message me a 7-10 digit number that is special to you.  I will impress you with my abilities!  More than one if you really want to be amazed.  Don't everybody do it at once.  No really, I can't do 20 of these tomorrow.  Non-math-geeks don't get it.  I'm hoping someone here will understand why this is difficult...

Isn't "e" a cool number?  2.7 1828 1828...
27 Mhz is CB radio
1828 is the year the motor was invented.  Wow!
If you fall... I'll be there for you!

Here's the first volunteer!  I hope you don't mind me giving out your phone number.  Type this into Excel.
It's symmetric.  Almost like a PI wearing sunglasses?  Maybe you don't get it.  The result is your phone number!

=5/PI()-PI()/5

A friend's 11 digit phone number I've known online for years:

e=2.7 1828 1828

=1/(1-1/SQRT(e))*2/3.1415926536

What are the odds of a 4 digit sequence repeating so near the beginning of an irrational number?
We only have a few right?

You can't win if you don't play the game?
You won't be amazed if you don't try me, with your own number...

The silence is deafening, I guess that carries a message in itself?
