The vesica piscis is a shape which is the intersection of two circles with the same radius, intersecting in such a way that the center of each circle lies on the circumference of the other. The name literally means the "bladder of a fish" in Latin.
The mathematical ratio of the width of the vesica piscis to its height is the square root of 3, or approximately 1.7320508... (since if straight lines are drawn connecting the centers of the two circles with each other and with the two points where the circles intersect, two equilateral triangles join along an edge). The ratios 265:153 = 1.7320261... and 1351:780 = 1.7320513... are two of a series of approximations to this value, each with the property that no better approximation can be obtained with smaller whole numbers.

21:11 Simon Peter went up and drew the net to land, full of large fish, a hundred and fifty-three and although there were so many, the net was not torn.
the smallest number which can be expressed as the sum of cubes of its digits:
153 = 13 + 53 + 33
and
equal to the sum of factorials of number from 1 to 5:
153 = 1! + 2! + 3! + 4! + 5!
That's a big one for me.
The sum of digits of 153 is a perfect square:
1 + 5 + 3 = 9 = 32
awesome
The sum of aliquot divisors of 153 is also a perfect square:
1 + 3 + 9 + 17 + 51 = 81 = 92 Aliquot divisors of a number are all the divisors of that number excluding the number itself but including 1. It is seen that the sum of aliquot divisors of 153 is the square of the sum of the digits of 153.
On adding the number 153 to its reverse,504 is obtained, whose square is the smallest square which can be expressed as the product of two different numbers which are reverse of one another:
153 + 351 = 504
5042 = 288 x 882

It can be expressed as the sum of all integers from 1 to 17. In other words, 153 is the 17th triangular number. Since reverse of 153, i.e. 351 is also a triangular number, 153 can be termed as a reversible triangular number.
wow!! it just gets cooler and cooler.
Number 153 is also a Harshad number(also called Niven number), i.e. it is divisible by the sum of its own digits:
153 / (1 + 5 + 3) = 17
Since reverse of 153, i.e. 351 is also a Harshad number(or Niven Number), 153 can be termed as a reversible Harshad number(or reversible Niven Number).

t can be expressed as the product of two numbers formed from its own digits:
153 = 3 * 51
65359477124183 x 17 = 1111111111111111
65359477124183 x 34 = 2222222222222222
65359477124183 x 51 = 3333333333333333
65359477124183 x 68 = 4444444444444444
65359477124183 x 85 = 5555555555555555
65359477124183 x 102 = 6666666666666666
65359477124183 x 119 = 7777777777777777
65359477124183 x 136 = 8888888888888888
65359477124183 x 153 = 9999999999999999

9 is a perfect square. But what is with the 32?edit on 26-1-2011 by mr10k because: (no reason given)

By the way, 153 has always been my lucky number. Really. It attracted me to this thread!

woah!
Man, the plot thickens.
Very cool indeed!

So the Pythagoreans used 153 : 265 to represent the square root of 3 long before the bible was written. Why include that number 153 in the bible? Why tell a story about a huge fish the size of a whale swallowing Jonah for 3 days? Same 3 days Jesus spent in the cave before resurrection after the "cross"? Why is the Babylonian antikythera device divided into 235 segments? Why are there 47 degrees of latitude between the tropics of Cancer and Capricorn? Why are the number of degrees in the compass and the number of days in the year divisible by 5?
Why did Edgar Allan Poe attend West Point?

I think it may be my new lucky number too
Why, may I ask is it your lucky number? Just a random number you chose?
The number 153 is the 17th triangular number. The colours show that 153 is also the sum of the first five positive factorials.
