What is the best number?

Today is the 73rd day of this year.

Big Bang Theory fans will guess what's coming.
Sheldon: What is the best number? By the way, there's only one correct answer.

Raj: 5,318,008?

Sheldon: Wrong! The best number is 73. [Short silence] You're probably wondering why.

Leonard & Howard: No no, we're good.

Sheldon: 73, is the 21st prime number, its mirror 37 is the 12th and its mirror 21 is the product of multiplying, hang on to your hats, 7 and 3. Did I lie?

Leonard: We did it! 73 is the... Chuck Norris of numbers!

Sheldon: Chuck Norris wishes! In binary, 73 is a palindrome, 1001001, which backwards is 1001001, exactly the same. All Chuck Norris gets you backwards is Sirron Kcuhc!

Raj: Just for the record, when you enter 5,318,008 in a calculator, upside down it spells BOOBIES!
Posted on the 73rd minute of the 73rd day of 2014.

The 73rd day of the year is also Pi Day in the USA - 3.14 - Geek heaven!
