6 (number)
6, also written as six, was invented during the reign of Emperor Constantine when, during his battle against the Gauls, he realized that he did not have a Legion between his Fifth and Seventh Legions and needed something to fill the gap. The number has since come to refer to any of the integers between 5 and 7.
In mathematics, 6 is often used by accidentally by mathematicians with poor handwriting who cannot differentiate between 6, 0, and 9. Due to the phenomenon of reverse truncation, 2+2 approximately equals 6 for very large values of 2. A common urban legend holds that 6 is afraid of 7 because "7 8 9". Recent forensic discoveries indicate that 9 most likely died of natural causes, and 6's fear of 7 may have stemmed from other sources, such as a history of domestic violence.
If you put 6 upside down (like this: 9), you may hang your jacket on it.
6 is also 6
