I'm not sure if "good" is exactly the adjective, but this one's got a lot of, um, stuff.. http://joern.free.de/23.html  including 9/11, the Mayans, and the Boy Scouts.

According to Wiki, it all started with Illuminatus, that science-fiction source of so many conspiracies:

i just saw the movie "the number 23" this past weekend.  it was pretty good, but it's just a movie.  i think that if you tried hard enough, you could do it with just about any number.

Wasn't the point that the movie is based on this whole 23 number thing?
It didn't start with the movie...
It was already a conspiracy type thing, and the movie is based on that..?

It shows the lengths that human ingenuity can go to to try to make anything at all fit into whatever someone's particular theory may be, anyway.

Looked into it a while ago... heard there was something to do with the axis tilt of earth....

You may like to read an excerpt of Gary Osborne's book on the subject...

Numerology.

Quote

Numerology and numerological divination were popular among early mathematicians, such as Pythagoras, but are no longer considered part of mathematics and are regarded as pseudomathematics by most modern scientists. This is similar to the historical development of astronomy out of astrology, and chemistry from alchemy.

yeah, alot of that stuff just gives me headaches watching the gymastics that are performed.  calculations can be manipulated in all manner of creative ways.

that being said, there is something to be had in synchronicity.
