Colloquy

The arithmetical sequence relies on word play. Start with 1. What do you see? One 1 so the next entry is 11. Now what do you see? 2 1s so the next entry is 21; then one 2 and one 1 yields 1211. Then 111221 is next, etc.

Forty-Three Names

Darryl Francis

The 43 names can be spelled out from the letters of the names of US Presidents. So, for example, Hans Geiger can be spelled out using some of the letters of George Washington. The most chronologically appropriate ordering of the names is with the Presidents' names in order they served as President. The 44th name will depend on the outcome of the US Presidential election in November 2008. As I write this article (May 2008), Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama are still contesting the Democratic nomination.
