215

215 is the smallest natural number that does not have a Wikipedia entry all to itself. If this fact by itself were significant enough for 215 to merit its own Wikipedia entry…

…there would have to be a Wikipedia entry for every natural number. Heh.

but then, aren't you assuming that all natural numbers greater than 215 have wiki entries to themselves? otherwise how else would there be wiki entries to for every natural number?

i didn't realize we were already working on assumptions... got it!

I'm sorry if this sounds vague/ignorant/rude/random/anything else, but I have to ask... how did you find out that 215 is the smallest natural number not to have a wiki entry?!?

@BJ: This is why I should clear doubts on the comment thread and not on Gtalk. See, now I have nothing to say to you.

@traveller & Shrabasti: Wouldn't you like to know? :D

@John Galt: That is the entry for the year 215 CE. I was talking about natural numbers having entries all to themselves. By your logic, even this counts as an entry.

You didn't wiki everything till 215? Dear lord, even you aren't jobless enough for that.
