Twenty-eight is the second perfect number. As a perfect number, it is related to the Mersenne prime 7, since 22(23 - 1) = 28. The next perfect number is 496, the previous being 6.

Twenty-eight is a harmonic divisor number, a happy number, a triangular number, a hexagonal number,and a centered nonagonal number. Twenty-eight is the sum of the first five prime numbers, and the sum of the totient function for the first nine integers.

It appears in the Padovan sequence, preceded by the terms 12, 16, 21 (it is the sum of the first two of these).

It is also a Keith number, because it recurs in a Fibonacci-like sequence started from its base 10 digits: 2, 8, 10, 18, 28...

Twenty-eight is the third positive integer with a prime factorization of the form 22q where q is an odd prime.

Twenty-eight is the ninth and last number in early Indian magic square of order 3.

There are twenty-eight convex uniform honeycombs.

How can you be sure that's all? I mean, have you checked every single bee hive in the world?

Well Cletus Emanuel is an anagram of Samuel Lee - Cunt. I suspect Carol might be equally 'bolt-on' suspect if fed into the correct anagram generator.

Nah, he's just copied the page for '28' out of Wikipedia. Which on the evidence of you experience probably means half of it has been made up by a bored undergraduate in Bombay with girlfriend issues and an unhealthy fetish for perenially unsuccessful Sth Lancashire footy teams.

I'll bow to your more perceptive assessment Spock, I get the impression from your post that there's a whole anagram culture there which means no more to me than the capital of Austria.

Anyway, I was intrigued by this honeycomb business. Here are the 28 different ways to have a convex middle that weighs so little (if you'll pardon my 1980s ad slogan reference). Looks as if they might be produced by bees on acid.

I think 25 is a lot more perfect than 28. I mean, what's that? It's not even divisible by five.

Number of weeks in a year, number of cards in a deck (excluding jokers), and (it says here) the number of countries in Africa.

26 is the only whole number that is sandwiched between a square number and a cube number (5 squared and 3 cubed).

26 is also the year in which Pontius Pilate was appointed Prefect of Judaea.

And, tellingly I think, 26 is the gematria of the four-letter name of God.
