factorial for those who don't know) is a decently large number with 5735 digits. Odd how the guy on the youtube comment said it took the program two hours to process when Windows' calculator can return that number and its square root in milliseconds. I didn't think python was that slow...

Of course, now I want to see how high the Windows' calc can actually go... This'll be fun!
Slowpokes are slow
And I just read a comment to the vid where the person showed that if there was another set of Brown numbers, the square number would have to end in a 1 or 9 because x!+1 always ends in 1, thus its square root ends in either a 1 or 9. Apparently every number up to 1 billion (1,000,000,000 I'm assuming and not the long form where that's called a milliard) has been checked and there are no others.
I'm quite sure that's enough for me to go to bed with now since my curiosity has been mostly sated.
