Some people I know like numbers very much...

Ramanujan was lying on his deathbed in Chennai, India when his english chum G.H.Hardy took a plane from Cambridge to visit him in India. Well you see , he came to see him for the last time and complained to his indian friend:-

Hardy:- the taxi cab i took has the most un-interesting number..

Ramanujan:- which number?

Hardy:- 1729.

Ramanujan:- Hey there wait!!!! 1729... is NOT un interesting!

Hardy:- ...!

Ramanujan smiled weakly and said:-

- You see : 1729 is the smallest number which can be written as

1729 = 10^3 + 9^3

and

1729 = 12^3 + 1^3

that is, 1729 is the smallest number which can be broken down into two cubes in 2 different ways...

and the next such number is a very very large one in fact...
