This is not a love affair with the number 26. You are being stalked by twenty-six, and it's going to end in misery unless you get a restraining order right away.
Do it for your own safety. This destructive relationship must end quickly, before it becomes violent. Do you really want to spend the rest of your life running away from 26, seeing it on the lottery reports, having it show up in phone numbers and IP addresses whenever it damn well pleases?
That's no kind of life. Believe me, I've been there before. I've been stalked by the cube root of 704. Oh, sure, it started innocently enough: 8.8959... it had a musical quality to it, a hint of stability. But then it turned into chaos: 8.89592036211..., and so on, and so on. What I didn't realize was that this number was seriously irrational and would never cease unless I did something to protect myself.
I am alive today only because I acted more quickly than Newton's method could converge on my stalker. Don't wait another minute. Get rid of that integer before it's too late.
