Let us just take the numbers, I mean the finite numbers 0, 1, 2, ...  
But let us take them all.
Then it can be shown that numbers without an encoding of "Gone with the  
wind" are quite exceptional.  Almost all natural numbers, written in  
any base, has an encoding of "Gone with the wind", and of the complete  
work of Feynman too, and the complete archive of the everything-list.
In the land of big numbers those numbers *who don't* are rare and  

It is not entirely obvious. There is a proof of this in the Hardy and  
Wright Introduction to Number Theory.
