2017 = 111111 0000 1

After a wee meander, 2017 seems a little weirdly interesting.

It's primal, not perfect, and odd. Really, after 2016?!

Its unicode suggests a year of delta: ߡ. Batten down the VIX then ;-)

Genetically, 2017 can't possibly be cool as it is the sum of squares: 9^2 + 44^2

2017 isn't politically happy as it opposes a primitive right [angle]. Some destiny: it is the hypotenuse of a primitive Pythagorean triple: 2017^2 = 792^2 + 1855^2

Cute representations:
2^11 - 2^5 + 2^0
3^2^2 + (2^2 (3^2 + 2))^2
It's a hex of old memories. 7E1 reminds me of the old BBS modem days: 7 bits with even parity. Remember when there wasn't an Internet and no blogs that wasted your time?

2017 mainly leaves one left out of small groups, unless you're talking about group of five. 2017 mod [2..9] = 1, except for 2017 mod 5 = 2. That's OK for me. After all, I'd question the judgement of small group that would include me :P

2017 suggests it is going to be interesting. Let's hope 2017 is not suggesting an ancient Chinese proverbial curse, "May you live in interesting times." Interesting in a good way would be nice.

Wishing you all the best for your primally odd 2017,

--Matt.
