For every integer n between 0 and 41
n2 + n + 41 is a prime number

And there's more:
n2 - 79 n + 1601 is prime for 0 ≤ n ≤ 79.

Perhaps there is some order in chaos after all?

An old timer is a man who's had a lot of interesting experiences -- some of them true.

Mmm. Boulevard. And let it be said that Utah tolerates the Mormons, and New York exiled them, but Missouri was the only state with the guts to shoot them.

I don't know about "only state..."  Good 'ol Joe had an awful time in Ohio.

The dot can be interpreted in many ways: one sees in it beauty of the mathematics, another may see the power of nature, for the third one it can remind about pie left in the oven.

The big flashy BEER GOOD neon links only with one thing (even though it's positive association).

I suppose if there's on the slide a razor-sharp pebble--let's say it's of basalt or obsidian or some such volcanically forged rock--that slices your shorts and T-shirt off as you slide across it.

Why do you ask?  Has your general scenario ever happened to you? :o

This time of year? I'd much rather be in Arizona. Though I would like to visit Pittsburgh sometime. I've heard from people who live there that it's not nearly as disgusting as it used to be, and the new baseball stadium I've heard has an incredible view of the rivers.
