The planet Venus has been referred to as the morning star since ancient times when people believed it appeared before sunrise. The word planet derives from Greek Planeta, meaning wanderer.

The luckiest number
Whether you’re curious about the best lucky numbers, you might be surprised to learn that it depends on where you reside.
Many people around the world regard seven to be a lucky number. According to a poll conducted by mathematician Alex Bellos, the number seven is the most popular lucky number in the world.
Given its prominence, it’s hardly surprising that there are seven days of the week, seven global marvels, seven continents, seven seas, and many more significant sevens.
In China, meanwhile, four is regarded as a symbol of happiness. For this reason, they celebrate four festive occasions each year: the Chinese New Year (February 4), Qingming Festival (April 4), Dragon Boat Festival (June 4), and Mid-Autumn Festival (September 4).
The Chinese believe these celebrations bring good luck to those participating in them. The Chinese also believe that celebrating their birthdays brings good luck.
On your birthday, you’ll wear red clothes, decorate your home with flowers, candles or other decorations, and enjoy cakes and other goodies while waiting for the arrival of your friends or relatives.
The ugliest number
Ugly numbers are those with only two, three, or five prime factors. The first 11 ugly numbers are shown in the sequence 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, 9, 10, 12, 15,… 1 is included by convention.
The aim is to discover the nth Ugly number given a number n. To determine whether a number is ugly, divide it by the most extraordinary divisible powers of 2, 3, and 5; if the result is 1, the number is ugly; otherwise, it is not.
Let us look at how to determine whether 300 is unattractive or not. After dividing 300 by the most excellent divisible power of 2, we get 75.
The most excellent divisible power of three is three. Thus we get 25 when we divide 75 by three. The most excellent divisible power of 5 is 25, and we get 1 by dividing 25 by 25.
Since we eventually receive one, 300 is an unappealing number. However, seven is not the sole lucky number.
Other traditional fortunate numbers from around the world are as follows:
- “Good things come in threes,” as the saying goes.
- In China and Japan, the number eight is considered lucky.
- In Germany, the number four is considered to be a lucky number.
Your favorite color
Blue is my favorite color. It’s the color of the sky and the ocean, and it always makes me feel calm and peaceful.
I love all shades of blue, from light blue to navy blue. I even have a few pieces of blue clothing in my wardrobe.
My absolute favorite shade of blue has to be robin’s egg blue. I also like turquoise, but it doesn’t make me feel as good as a robin’s egg.
Sometimes I wear that shade when I want to brighten up an outfit. The only other colors that get me excited are yellow and orange.
Yellow reminds me of sunshine, and oranges remind me of fall leaves on the ground. These colors remind me of happy times, so they’re perfect for those days when you need a little pick-me-up.
I’m not much into reds or purples because they don’t evoke feelings in me. I don’t think there’s a single shade of purple that looks good on anyone!
That said, some people look great in every color–I’m just not one of them. I’ve tried wearing black several times but never seem to do well.
Plus, black can wash out your skin tone and make you look tired (especially if you have a lot of dark circles under your eyes). So instead of wearing black myself, I like dressing someone else in it!
Black can be very slimming too. And since I have such fair skin, most blacks will show up pretty well against my complexion.
If nothing else, I’ll put together outfits for girls with darker skin tones because this way, they can enjoy the benefits of looking slimmer and more refreshed too.
I was playing this game with my friends the other day, and it’s enjoyable and freaky. You pick a number between 1-10, and then whatever number you choose, multiply it by 3.
Then add 6 to that. Next, take the answer and divide it in half. And lastly, subtract the original number you chose. The final answer should be your birth month! Try it out with your friends and see how accurate it is!
If someone asks for an example of what the calculation looks like, try 5 = 15 – 10 = 5 or 8 = 24 – 10 = 14 . Or if you want to do it yourself, here are some sample calculations: 4 = 12 – 10 = 2, 7 = 21 – 10 = 11.
For most people, the first thing they’ll say is their birthday, but these numbers don’t work.
For those born on January 1st: 10+6=16 -> 16/2=8 -> 2. Those born on January 30 have the same problem as well; 12+6=18 -> 18/2=9 -> 9
This game is called Pick a Number. It’s pretty simple: you choose any number between 1 and 10, and I’ll tell you whether it’s odd or even. But there’s a catch. If you pick an odd number, I’ll also tell you the following highest odd number.
I’ll tell you the following lowest even number if you pick an even number. The reason for this is that when you’re playing pick a number, every time someone picks a number that isn’t one of the two they have left to choose from, they go back to their original two numbers and make them higher or lower than what they had before.
The whole game can be played with any number of participants, from two all the way up to ten. Still, if you’re playing with more than 4 people, we recommend having three rounds of this game instead of just one round like in this video. And remember, only your final choice counts!
