What is the sequence that always makes this end at 4?
Choose any number, and after a while, the sequence will always be 4. Here are a few examples.
5,4,4,4,4,4
6,3,5,4,4,4,4
100,7,5,4,4,4,4

You need to phrase it better, If 1 is 3 and 3 is 4 and 4 is eternal then what is 23423429398220912124 ( I dare some one to do that one)

This is a great sequence abhisk. I really enjoyed it ;)



EDIT: I'd post something more substantial, but everyone has already so eloquently explained it B))
