That's just 14×10, but yeah.
I reversed that and switched the symbols and now it equals 137
But you didn't switch all symbols: in fact, the only one that you changed was that for 1^3. Of course the result's 2 greater if you add 2, and it's no longer alternating.

I can't speak, though. Can't think of anything for 141 (or be bothered to).
I somehow bent a spoon while scooping ice cream out of a container. Oops.
I once did that with a proper ice-cream scoop. We now have a new, sturdier one.

I guess so. I changed the positions of the numbers without really moving the symbols at all. So I went from 6^3 - 5^3 + 4^3 - 3^3 + 2^3 - 1^3 to 1^3 - 2^3 + 3^3 - 4^3 + 5^3 - 6^3, but yeah, maybe I should have moved the symbols with them, and made it like - 1^3 + 2^3 - 3^3 + 4^3 - 5^3 + 6^3 and removed the - in front of the 1.
And I feel incredibly dumb for not noticing the 14x10...

More consecutive primes: 11 + 13 + 17 + 19 + 23 + 29 + 31

A card store opened three days ago within walking distance of where I live, maybe I'll build a Yu-Gi-Oh deck from the few hundred cards I own and almost never use and try to play in a tournament. And lose terribly, but hopefully it'll be fun.

Numbers of form n^2 + 1, bane of factorisation. 145 now.

I can't think of much, but I guess you can add 3 to each digit to get the next one. 147 inklings.

148 looks deceptively composite but it's only got, like, 6 factors.

150, the total number of stars in Super Mario 64 DS. I've never gotten them all, but I do have every star in the original game, I can do that in just a few hours.

With 150, If you add up all of its prime factors (2+3+5+5 = 15) and then add up only it's unique prime factors (2+3+5 = 10) and multiply those together, you get 150.

Early post, Gari. And I wanted that number for Pokémon reasons, but I'll live.

152 feels familiar to me but too sleepy to try to figure it out.

155 Unova Pokémon from the first starter to the last Legendary... and then there's Victini!

The distance you would travel if you ran straight from a Tennis court's baseline to its other baseline and back. Jumping over the net each time, of course.

The next two numbers are pretty neat.

157 Inklings!

I don't know what's special about 157…(I did see that it's prime triplets with 151 and 163) ;-;

And this guy is #157 in the Pokedex

Sorry to disappoint, but I'm not sure what's exciting about 158. I've figured out something for both 160 and 168 while checking some possibilities, though.

In... feet? That seems a little much, even so.

Yes, in feet, sorry, they're 78 feet long. They both contain the same digits when squared. 157^2=24,649 158^2=24,964 I'm sort of surprised you didn't notice. 13 and 14 do this, too. OEIS has a page for these, A072841. 159 is semi-prime, and there's a difference of 4 between each digit. Also, they're the 4th-6th digits of Pi.
