33 n da streets[edit]

that is tmi man

Not equivalent to "cheese"![edit]

I delete this

  • In Spanish, the "smile to the camera" word, as is "cheese" in English. Diga treinta y tres ("Say thirty-three") is the same as "Say cheese"

Any one that knows Spanish would realize that saying "treinta y tres" will not make you "smile". (A better word would be "chiste" or "chispa"). (talk) 03:39, 26 February 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Is there any known enigma 33 like there is for 23? Also why is it that I see this number everywhere ever since I've seen the episode of battlestar galactica entitled 33?-- (talk) 03:57, 17 October 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

33 in Pi[edit]

3 is the first number that repeats in Pi, making it 33.

...I find it too trivial to be included in an encyclopaedic article. Or does it have some deeper consequences?


AFAIK the expression 00 is not defined. See [[1]] for example. (talk) 21:04, 13 November 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Where is Jason Varitek?[edit]

In the "Sports" tab, a lot of notable 33s are mentioned, but one very good example is ommitted: Jason Varitek of the Boston Red Sox. Also, James Shields (pitcher for the Tampa Bay Rays) wears this number.BeckyDR (talk) 11:50, 28 April 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Deleted a section[edit]

I deleted: "If a man lives to 66, which is a good age for someone living in the Valleys, the at the age of 33 half of his life is already over. Although for some people 33 is the last age they will ever reach. People such as.

John Belushi, American, actor and comedian, overdose of cocaine and heroin, 1982 Eva Cassidy, American, singer, cancer, 1996 Sam Cooke, American, soul musician, homicide, 1964 Sanjay Gandhi, Indian, politician, member of Nehru-Gandhi family, aircraft crash, 1980 Jesus (exact age at death uncertain), Judean, founder of Christianity, crucifixion, ca.

33 is not only a numerical representation of “the star of David”, but also the numerical equivalent of AMEN. 1+13+5+14=33 —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 23:17, 4 February 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

In popular culture[edit]

Alexi Laiho, aka the Wild Child, rocks a dashing 33 tat. It symbolizes the number of t-shits he has sold through his clothing line Wild Child Industries. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 23:40, 18 July 2011 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Okay. Bam. "33" is the beer served at Vietnamese restaurants in Seattle/Tacoma (and, i assume, elsewhere). I'm not sure how to go about linking, articling, etc. This number pages thing seems pretty complicated. An article about the beer and its history would be very interesting.


"33" is also found on the bottom of Rolling Rock beer. It's unknown as to the origin of this as the beer was not first produced in 1933 nor are there 33 ingredientsWoodiechild (talk) 23:41, 19 July 2011 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Why removing content?[edit]

How come Arthur Rubin was given free rein to remove content which he does not understand taking into consideration that such material lies outside the fields of comprehension and expertise of his persona? MagnetElectro (talk) 09:53, 28 July 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]

(1) Arthur Rubin did NOT even offer a description for his editing gymnastics here! MagnetElectro (talk) 10:19, 28 July 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]
(2) Arthur Rubin interfered with the category of Religion under the pretense that the reasoning behind my entry escapes his comprehension of the significance thereof! MagnetElectro (talk) 10:19, 28 July 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]
The fact that a length divided by an SI unit the Egyptians didn't use divided by an irrational number (used for circumferences rather than distances) equals 33 (how closely?) is not a property of the number 33. You don't need to be a qualified mathematician to see that, though handily Dr. Rubin happens to be one. "Trivia" seems like an accurate edit summary to me. The only departure from the accepted WP:BRD path was reinstating the text after the addition was reverted. I support removal of the text. Certes (talk) 11:11, 28 July 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]
See Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Ibrahim ibrahim. Ibrahim's books are fringe and self-published, one of the names of the "publishers" is MagnetElectro. Doug Weller talk 18:13, 28 July 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Sum of three cubes[edit]

As of 2019-03-09, 33 is no longer the smallest number not known to be a sum of three cubes; one of the sources linked (specifically, the Numberphile video) contains an erratum to this effect. However, when I tried to remove that now-false statement, my edit was reverted due to it being "original research". How should I go about removing such information in the future? Edderiofer (talk) 16:07, 9 March 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Arithmetic is not original research. Wikipedia should not include statements which are provably false, especially when that proof can be stated and confirmed so simply. This principle applies even if the falsehood is "verifiable" using sources which just became outdated. However, we do need to wait for a reliable source to appear before we can state that 42 is now the lowest uncertain number. Certes (talk) 17:35, 9 March 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]
