I will try your 137 trick:-) Does an anatomist notice 206, which is the number of human bones?

When I was in the 8th grade I read a book on Ramanujan who was a very intititve mathmatician. The story was that the was in London and saw a taxi with the number 1729 on it. Someone commented what a boring number, but he said that it was really great at it is the smallest number you can expresss as the sum of two positive cubes in two ways. That is 1 cubed plus 12 cubed or 9 cubed plus 10 cubed:-) That stuck with me and I smile whenever I see that number.
