What's wrong with saying 2989?

There is a reason why it is a "bad" number  :)

Yeah.
I'll give you a tip: 57005 is a "dead" number.
Now I think it's easy.

I mostly use DEADBEEF (32 bit), DEAD (16), and AA or 55 (8 bit) to initialise memory which I need to inspect later whether overwritten.  Common practice when I began programming machine code back in the 80's.

so proud to see the climate change protests 160 nations over 4 million people!

How big was the global climate strike? 4 million people, activists estimate.
Friday was a truly historic day for the potent new social movement committed to sounding a global alarm about the climate crisis. The Global Climate Strikes, inspired by Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg, age 16, may end up being the largest mass protest for action on global warming in history. 

The exact number of participants worldwide will be hard to get. But the event was truly global and astonishingly well organized: There were over 2,500 events scheduled in over 163 countries on all seven continents.

MSNBC has a great series on the climate catastrophe.  They interviewed a scientist who used to work for the USDA, who has since left to work for Columbia university because the administration wouldn't let him publish his research.  He showed that more carbon dioxide in the atmosphere actually changes plant metabolism and makes our crops less nutritious, with lower levels of zinc and iron.  They also sent people down to Guatemala to show how climate change is causing the mass migration of people from Central America, because they cant grow their crops down there anymore and are starving.  The administration's own people told them this a year ago but they chose not to disclose it.

Actually he is far from the only scientist to show this.  It has and continues to be extensively studied (one example study of many), and is also supported by the geologic record.

Thanks Wat, it's shocking how antiscience and anti-intellectual our government currently is, that scientists are forced to leave government agencies to get their work published.
