From a certain point of view, I must admit that I don't have much experience with perfect numbers - I've only dealt with two of them so far. Still, even this kind of limited experience has been pretty much all pleasant :)
One is not exactly a perfect number, since it ought to be omitted from the list of its own divisors, but still - hmm, "but still" what... I don't seem to remember all that much from the first year of my life :P
Six is a perfect number - and the sixth year of my life, almost exactly in the middle (of the sixth year, not the life), brought me a wonderful sister :)
Twenty-eight is a perfect number - and the twenty-eighth year of my life brought me lots of things, most of them good; lots of changes - some of them much more serious, more significant, more startling than what other years have brought; many new experiences, many new acquaintances, many new friends. I'd like to once again say "thank you!" to all those who have somehow influenced me or my life - in most cases, for the best :) As "Yuvigi" sang recently, "It's a beautiful life!"
The next perfect number is somewhat bigger... and I'm not the kind of person who makes plans (at least not ones that actually come true) for more than a week ahead, never mind 468 years ahead :P
