Can you identify this integer sequence?

Post by John Gray »

This is so esoteric that not even Chris will know the answer!

Can you elucidate the meaning of this sequence of ten integers?

Hint
It is font-associated...

Think how stupid the average person is, then realise that half of the population are stupider than that.

I think this problem is easier to resolve if you break it into segments.

Google suggests it's a telephone number somewhere in Berau of East Kalimantan Indonesia.

Thanks but I'm OK. I was teasing when I mentioned the phone number in Indonesia idea.

For those interested in, nay fascinated by, an authoritative account of the sequence 6255456476 here is the link to The On-Line Encyclop[a]edia of Integer Sequences, which I suspect is bedtime reading for quite a number of Lounge members...

Ken, you are on the right trek.
FWIW the web page doesn't do too well with telephone numbers. I fed in both my Toronto number and my Newfoundland number, first in the form of a ten-digit string, then as a set of ten spaced digits. Failed to find anything of interest on all four counts.

So I gave it an easy-peasy example, the first six odd numbers 1, 3, 5, 7, 9, 11 which are followed, as any fule kno, by "13".
