96. Anti-super-prime.

96 is the last integer which cannot be represented as a sum of distinct super-primes.

Super-primes are the primes that occupy a prime-numbered position in the list of primes.

Sounds like they should be called positional primes.

But then, how'd you call the primes that occupy a prime-numbered position in the positional primes list? positional positional primes? and the ones on that list, positional positional positional primes?

I like the idea that it's just a big stack of super-super-super-super...{for an infinitely long super-string}...super-primes myself, each more rare than the previous ones.

I said it, then I thought about it, then I posted it anyways. Pretty much the same thoughts as yours. Answer: no idea.

112. Emergency telephone number

112 is the common emergency telephone number that can be dialed free of charge from any fixed or mobile telephone in order to reach emergency services (ambulance, fire and rescue, police) in numerous European Countries, including all member states of the European Union, as well as several other countries in the world. In some countries other numbers previously used also continue to be available; e.g. 999 and 112 both function in the UK. In the United States, some carriers, including AT&T, will map the number 112 to its emergency number 9-1-1.
