Total sections (On The rule of three, if you have a topic which is broken down into three sections,each of these is broken down into three sub-sections and each of these three sub-sections is broken down into a further three sections (three generations using the "rule of three") gives you a total of 40 sections (1+3+9+27).)

44. Happy Palindrome.
Spoiler:
A happy number is one where, if you take each of their digits, and square them, and sum them, giving n, and you repeat the same process on n, you eventually reach 1.

42 + 42 = 16+16 = 32

32 + 22 = 9 + 4 = 13

12 + 32 = 1 + 9 = 10

12 + 02 = 1 + 0 = 1

44 is happy because its journey ended instead of being stuck in an infinite loop like unhappy numbers!

And a Palindromic number is one that is the same no matter if you read it right to left or left to right.

44 is the first number with both properties.

53 is the smallest prime number that does not divide the order of any sporadic group. The most famous sporadic group is the Monster Group, whose existence may be the biggest mystery in Mathematics according to John Conway.

Very cool.

Too bad all of it goes over my head, so let's go with:

Oh, thanks. :) You meant a complement, as store brands are often rated higher.

I saw your thread. All that non-integer stuff confuses me. This thread, though, is about words, primarily. Yours doesn't appear to have that component, just possible verbal explanations. These two threads appear to be different. Am I missing an important aspect?

56. Lorry speed restrictor limit (UK)- Most lorries in the UK have speed restrictors installed so that they can't go faster than 56 MPH. By UK law, it is legal for lorries to travel up to 60 miles per hour on a motorway, although few reach this speed as the vast majority are restricted. This sometimes leads to a phenomenon known as "elephant racing", where one lorry going at 56 miles per hour attempts to overtake another lorry travelling at almost the same speed. Due to the low speed difference between the lorries, it takes a long time for them to overtake. This is frequently a source of irritation for car drivers who would like to travel faster, but both lanes are blocked by slow-moving lorries.

Oh sorry Knee Jerk. I thought Aarex started this thread to mess with me.
this is literally exactly what I intended my thread to be though. I never meant for there to be non-integers or like, math. So I guess I'll just shut mine down and move here.

Agreed, to me both threads were unique and fun in their own way, despite this one playing as 12obin hoped h to play like.

I also had a similar idea, but I think 3 similar threads would be too much so I dropped it.

65. Magic constant:

Fill out a 5x5 square with numbers from 1 to 25.

Move them around until all their columns, rows, and diagonals give the same number.

This number will be 65.
