Riiiiiiight! 2's a prime number you fuckwit!
The Seven Hills of Yungaburra, The Three Sisters. Most birds lay 1, 2 or 3 eggs - all prime numbers.
I can just see any pack of animals holding a caucus meeting because their pack population is suddenly a prime number and they need to sort out who to kick out!

1 is generally not considered prime (it doesn't have two, and only two, unique factors).

I always thought the definition was only wholly divisible by 1 and itself.

According to the Wikipedia article on prime numbers, the main reason 1 isn't included is so every number has a unique factorization into primes (if you include 1 as prime, you could add any number of factors of 1 to get a different factorization). Number theory generally divides integers into four classes: zero, units (1 and -1), primes, and composites.

Point?
Nothing to do with any religion as maths owe nothing to any

Well numbers don't actually exist, they're mearly concepts created by mankind in order to make sense of the world (in a very over simplified explaination). So, um...yeah, dunno what my point is really. Or his.

Basically, clontzjm is both fucking stupid and fucking ignorant -- and not afraid to hide his light under a bushel.

One of my cats knows when all three of his "pack" members are around. He's much more relaxed and satisfied when we are all together. His sister doesn't care so much, she's more of a loner.

Why did you make that statement? It is completely devoid of logic.

@Generic FSTDT Idiot:
1 is no longer considered a prime number, but was classed as one in most texts until the mid-50s. 2 and 3 are prime numbers. Many FSTDT members are in the 40s, 50s and even 60s or older and were taught that 1 is a prime number.
