# 4909

This number is a prime.

4909 is a *pernicious** prime* because it contains a prime number of ones in its binary representation.

The Gregorian calendar is just a tad out of sync with Earth’s trip ’round the sun. The difference isn’t huge — we’ll have an extra day to deal with by 4909 CE. [Plumer]

(There is one curio for this number that has not yet been approved by an editor.)
