This is something I found in a book today. I thought it'd be good to share it:

1^3 + 2^3 + 3^3 + 4^3 + 5^3 + 6^3 + 5^3 + 4^3 + 3^3 + 2^3 + 1^3 = 666

    Why?  What is its significance to anything?  It is a finite power series that equals a finite number.  Nothing special about that.  One can find a finite series for just about any number.  What is more interesting is the many, many infinite series that equal various functions of PI, the natural logarithm, trig functions, exponentials, etc.  Ratch

It's interesting (well, "cute", anyway) that the series is so "pretty", and is symmetrical across 6^3...

This is the definitive proof that the Evil exists, and he is my ex math teacher. :D
