Eric Angelini suggested this two weeks ago, but I have
only now had a chance to study it:
a(n) > a(n-1) and a(n) is the smallest available composite
embedding the smallest not yet embedded prime:
p= 2 3 5 7 11 13 17 19 23 29 31 37 41 43 47 51 ...
I see that it met with vigorous opposition.
But allow me to defend it! I have spent the past 11 hours
processing submissions and edits and emails about sequences,
and it is pretty tough going. Almost every sequence I looked at
needed work, and I looked at a LOT of sequences today.
It was a a pretty humorless day.
On the other hand, this one made me laugh. So in spite of
the objections, I am not only going to add it, I'm also
adding a mate to it:
%S A144565 12,30,35,57,110,130,170,190,230,290,310,370,410,430,447,451
%N A144565 a(n) = smallest composite number > a(n-1) that contains the n-th prime as a substring.
%O A144565 1,1
%K A144565 nonn,base,more
%Y A144565 Cf. A169798.
%e A144565 S = 12,30,35,57,110,130,170,190,230,290,310,370,410,430,447,451,...
%e A144565 p = .2.3...5..7.11..13..17..19..23..29..31..37..41..43...47..51....

Besides, these could easily appear on some IQ test one day.
