Notice to all users of the Holodeck:

There are safety protocols in place that cannot be deactivated without the approval of two commanding officers or the captain to protect users of the Holodeck from potential harm. However, every time the Holodeck is ever used in a nontrivial manner, no matter what the safety protocols say, the Holodeck turns into a deathtrap.

Unless you believe yourself to be adept at constructing a forcefield from your communicator and 19th century Earth tools, or you're at the very least not wearing a red shirt, you are strongly advised not to attempt to use the Holodeck until a designer comes up with a safety protocol that doesn't kill you whenever somebody looks at it funny. Even when you're not on the holodeck. Or in the same quadrant. Or time period.

In fact, if you are wearing a red shirt, Starfleet may not be the job for you

My favorite number

Do you know what today is? It's my favorite day of the year! It's my Unbirthday. Specifically, it is my 8361/10000 birthday today (not my half birthday, not my quarter birthday, my eight-thousand-three-hundred-sixty-one ten-thousandths birthday). Prime factorization of 8361 is 32 x 929. 8361 can be represented by the sum of two squares 602+692. The binary representation of 8361 is 10000010101001. But most of all, 8361 is the number when, divided by 10000, represents the fraction of a year that is the difference between my birthday and this day, today.

And that fact alone makes 8361 my favorite number. Today anyway. But tomorrow, well hoo-boy. Two-thousand-ninety-seven two-thousand-five-hundredths is making it's comeback!
