The Number Game (1)

It’s time for something geeky. I’ll post a number, you ‘guess’ why it’s cool. Obviously, this is, in essence, subjective, so you might question the existence of a wrong answer, but I’ll try to make it as clear as possible. So when I say ‘1729’ and you answer ‘that’s a cool number, because when you reverse its digits, it’s the zipcode of my aunt’, you’re just wrong ;). Because everybody knows that 1729 is the second taxi-cab number. Otherwise known as the Hardy-Ramanujan number. Alright, an easy one to start us off:


I’ll post an interesting number once a week. Also, when you comment, could you please hide your comment if it contains (possible) information on the solution, so as not to spoil? A simple way to do this is to use the colour white; 

<font color=”white”> Your text should be here </font>

But there might be a more advanced way. Anyway, happy puzzling!
