Re: Rant Thread - The Spates of Wrath

Am I the only one who think that even at age 17 having some kind of last will and testament makes sense? Just because I'm not old doesn't mean that there isn't some finite chance I'll die young (Wolfram|Alpha pegs the odds at 0.35% that I'll die before 20), and just because I'm young doesn't mean th...

Re: UK Space Agency Officially Announced

The UKSA's relationship with the ESA in either article seems unclear. Will it be a subdivision, or an agency which works with the ESA, or a break off from the ESA, or a co-sponsor of the ESA, or what?

No matter what though, it's always nice to see an increase in space research.

While I am happy that there are books, it certainly signals that there will not be any further comics. Kind of like how even though there are plenty of Calvin and Hobbes books, it's still depressing to think that it's over.

Re: Primes near a number

Let's say for a moment that you had some function f(x) which would return the exact number of primes below x. If p is a prime however, you would be able to notice that f(p-1) = f(P+1) - 1, and therefore deduce that p is a prime. This would be a tremendous breakthrough, but unfortunately it hasn't ha...
