numbers are my friends, my family, my children, and I love them all equally.

^ geek you

Have no serious issue with any of the natural numbers, only 5 seems a bit cold to me and 10 is boring (a friend of mine hates the 10, she'd for example never board a plane or do something important on the 10th of a month...)

8 (infinity turned by +/-90, two zeros stacked on each other, the power of the first two prime numbers, i.e. 2^3, and something else I cannot explain in words) and 0 (mysterious and pure) are particularly lovely to me, as are π and i (got a thing for everything complex ).

it contains

1: the whole, everything

Oooh.
So it turns out 10 can't be divided after all.

I wish I could spread that on toast and eat it.

Aye, you speak truth T.I.P.! Plus 10 doubles in binary, have to readjust my opinion on 10 a bit maybe... But I insist on 5 being a cold number

Even numbers play by the rules, but odd numbers are more interesting.
