An amusing bit against the number 5

Quote
I do not like the number five. I believe Five drives around in a red Mustang wearing mirrored sunglasses. Five lounges at lights with one arm out the window, slapping the side of the car to the beat of Van Halen’s “Runnin’ With the Devil.” I’d like to wipe that look off Five’s face. When running, Five bounds with an uneven gait, like a hare with a bum ankle. Five is prime, which I find obnoxious: why should a number refuse to divide by anything other than itself and one? Who does it think it is?

The whole article appears to be a plug for a book about personifying numbers, but it's an inspired (dare I say, Discordian) plug.

That was neat! This Grapes of Math book sounds awesome. Just slip 'em the numeriliogy while they're in casual reading mode and vulnerable, yes. :lol:

Life can be seen as a game with no reset button, no extra lives, and if the power goes out there is no restarting.  If that's all you see life as you are not long for this world, and never will get it.

Bravo, I had to look at your username to realize that was not, in fact, a genuine hirley0 post.
