@blinry Hmmm... I liked the prime numbers one. I'm not convinced by this one. You need a mathematical definition of interesting, I guess.

@blinry @Eclogiter I understand the proof, but this isn't the same as defining what a cat or a lasagne is. The proof here rests on what makes a number interesting. It relies on the fact that having the property of being 'the smallest boring number' makes a number interesting. This implies that a number is 'interesting' if it has a unique or unusual property, but doesn't state it clearly.

For some reason, I'm reminded of the proof by induction that all people have ginger hair...
