Significant Birthdays for STEM Nerds

An old photo, probably from the 60s, of a nerdy looking boy blowing out the candles on a birthday cakeMost people consider the following to be significant birthdays:

1, 10, 18, 21, 30, 40, 50, 60, 70, 80, 90, 100, 101, 102, 103, 104, 105, …

As a self-identifying STEM nerd, I find the following list of significant birthdays much more interesting…

1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 8, 9, 13, 16, 18, 21, 25, 32, 34, 36, 49, 55, 64, 81, 89, 100, 121, 128, …

128 is my stretch goal. 🙂

(WIN! If you’re the first person to post the next ten numbers in the sequence in a comment, you’ll win a free warm fuzzy feeling of being the first person to post the next ten numbers in the sequence.)
