The digit 1 has been called "The loneliest number," yet many organizations, including sports teams, companies and countries take pride in calling themselves "Number 1." This page, part of The Digits Project, is dedicated to the investigation, analysis, and discussion of the paradoxical digit 1.


It appears that some organization has it out for the great digit 1. Try searching using any of the big name search engines for the word "one" or the digit "1" and you will receive NO (that's zero) sites listed. Don't speak to anyone, we don't know how far this conspiracy has gotten. Act natural, and check in for periodic updates.

Thank you.
