You know you are a sci-fi geek, if the above reminds you of the Chitchatuk (humans) of the planet Sol Draconi Septem in the book, [url=http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/0553572946/qid=1062057772/sr=2-2/ref=sr_2_2/002-5056187-8156050][u]Endymion[/u] by Dan Simmons[/url]. The Chitchatuk believe it is good luck to hunt in parties with a prime number of members.
