... you buy a water-cooled tower so you don't have to underclock it.

...if you're driving along and look at an odd mileage on the odometer, and wonder if it's prime.

...if one of the rooms in your house has a mersenne prime number of tiles on the floor.

You are *REALLY* addicted to GIMPS if you know for sure all the primes an odometer can show...

You try to factor numbers in people's usernames. -- guilty --

Dunno if this has been said, but you only pick prime numbers on lottery tickets that you can choose numbers on.

You would only live in a city whose zip code is prime.

You idly fantasize about selling electric coffee warmers, small room heaters, etc., that are actually cpu farms crunching along and sending in results.

if after reading this you think if your own city's zip code is prime

if you think it is after checking primes over 10 and then when you run a calculator verification it determines 3 is a factor

:sad: You get really depressed because your zipcode, your phone number, and your drivers license number are all even.

:sad: And your SSN ends in 5.

That would be a very strangely shaped room!

Or you get excited upon finding out what your student number is because it "looks prime" (isn't divisible by anything obvious like 2 or 5), but then pull out a calculator and find out that it's 13 times 28513, and get upset because your phone number is a multiple of 27.

Well, every day, my school announces special anniversaries of events.

Needless to say, I'm a bit disappointed that they did not mention the discovery of the 39th Mersenne prime.

You have [URL=http://www.utm.edu/research/primes/lists/small/100000.txt]this page[/URL] bookmarked so you can immediately check if a number you encounter is prime.

You write down numbers you encounter to see if they are prime when you have time to check the list.

You continue to update the list posted earlier, which now has 163 entries and a sixth page.
