not a beautiful or unique snowflake

I like to imagine that we try to contact alien races by sending out signals that prove we're intelligent, and we use something like:

if W(n) is the least witness for n, there are infinitely many composite n such that:
W(n) > (log n)1/(3 log log log n)

And the intelligent, starfaring aliens look at this stuff and say, "Good grief, these people are nuts. Let's give 'em a miss."
