Random

I am spinning.

Bill is on the computer.

We are listening to the radio.

Bill: You would think that they would thin out after a while, but they don't.

Me: What?

Bill: Prime numbers.

I can honestly say that I really never thought much about it.

Hee hee hee. I can't exactly say that's on my top ten list of things to contemplate.

Oh my. I agree with Leigh. I do believe Bill may enjoy this. It may take some time to download but I believe if he's thinking prime numbers this will be up his alley.

...maybe that's because prime numbers make up all the other numbers... always two apart, and added together make up everything else... so, they CAN'T thin out.

But honestly: it's not something I gave much thought to until this moment.

But I have tried to think some on pi...

"Thin" is a word that I don't give much thought to, let alone prime numbers :)

There ought to be a name for that number which falls in between the two primes ... since they always fall 2 apart. You know? Hmm... and why is it that nobody seems to care about that lone even number sandwiched between the pair of primes?
