The 47 Society is a humorous society at Pomona College in California that propagates the belief that the number 47 is the quintessential random number. Campus lore suggests that Pomona math professor Donald Bentley produced a convincing mathematical proof that 47 was equal to all other integers. (See www.47.net/47society/.) [Schuler]
