e^{πi}
The previous number is greater than 1. The real component of e^{ix} is cos(x), which cannot be greater than 1, and therefore the numbers are different.

The natural logarithm of the previous number is an imaginary number, when squared gives a negative number. The natural logarithm of my number is real, when squared gives a positive number. Since a positive number can't be a negative, the values are different.

The number I'm posting is a multiple of 10, and therefore contains at least one 0. The previous number doesn't contain any zero, hence the difference.

The previous number was even and this number is odd, and an even number can't be odd so the numbers are different.

77
This number has a repeated digit while the previous one didn't. There's only one decimal representation for integers, so such a repetition of one should mean they're different.

Re: My Number Is Not Your Number!
Vytron, I challenge that. 0 and 00 are, by your logic, different numbers, but they are clearly both zero!

77 (in base 8)
If you add 1 to this number, you get a multiple of 8. If you add 1 to the previous number, you do not get a multiple of 8. Therefore the numbers are different.

This is the same number as the number the previous number claims to be different from, expressed in base 10 rather than base 8. Therefore, if the previous number differs from the number before it, this number differs from the previous number.

0 is the decimal representation for zero, so I'll claim representing it with more than one 0 is unnecessary and wrong so such alternatives for number writing should be ignored when comparing if numbers are different.

This number was posted two posts ago so to prove it is the same as last post you'd have to prove first that SirGabriel's and Daggoth's are the same. Good luck with that.

The square root of this number is not an integer, but the previous number has an integer square root. Therefore the numbers are different.

The md5 checksum of this number (as a string) is 2723d092b63885e0d7c260cc007e8b9d, and the md5 checksum of the previous number is a1d0c6e83f027327d8461063f4ac58a6. These checksums are different, therefore the numbers are different.

101_{2}
101 in binary is 5 in decimal. If the previous number was written in binary, it'd require at least 7 digits. The number I'm sending uses 3 digits (not counting the one used to depict the base.)
3 is less than 7, hence the numbers are different or one of these statements is false (hint: none of these statements is false.)

(Previous number plus one)
Any real number plus one will never be the same as the original number. I don't know if this breaks a rule

6^{6}
This is the previous number raised to the power of itself. No number raised to the power of itself equals itself, with the exception of 1 (and possibly 0, I don't know what 0^{0} equals). Since 6 is neither 0 nor 1, this is different from the previous number.

What about (1)^(1) = 1
x^{x} will approach 1 as x approaches 0.

Forgot about that one. But 6 has an absolute value greater than 1, and no number with an absolute value greater than 1 can equal itself when raised to the power of itself, so my number is still different from the previous one.
Re: My Number Is Not Your Number!
NAN, a.k.a NotANumber, 6 is a number while NAN is not, so 6 is not NAN

Re: My Number Is Not Your Number!
I challenge the validity of NAN, because the rules tell you to post a number, not a not a number.
If NaN is valid what stops me from posting:
Cherry
?

1. 1 is a number, whereas Cherry is not a number
Re: My Number Is Not Your Number!
NaN is in the floating point spec and floating point numbers are numbers so NaN is a number.

In that case I send:
ZIP Code
Because all ZIP Codes are a 5 digit number.
The last number had one digit, a ZIP Code has 5, so they're different.

If you multiply this number by itself, you get a whole number, but pi doesn't have this property, so they're different.

This number, when expressed in decimal form, has a finite number of digits after the decimal. The previous number, when expressed in decimal form, has an infinite number of digits after the decimal. Therefore they are different.

This number has its decimal point in a different place than the previous number, making it be orders of magnitude bigger than the previous one. Identical numbers have identical orders of magnitude, so the numbers should be different.

Being half doesn't mean it's not the same number, because the number could be zero, so our numbers could be the same.
