The 47 Society
The 47 Society is about the number 47, the quintessential random number. Many have noticed. Many have wondered: why? Many more have wondered: so what?
In short, 47 appears to be the quintessential random number of the universe. In other words, when a number appears randomly, more often than not, that number is 47. In other other words, if you asked people to pick a number at random, more often than not, that number would be 47.
Of course, if 47 shows up more than any other number then it isn't truly random, but using the word random makes the whole phenomenon easier to describe.
