... you persuade your dad that a dual Xeon system _is_ the minimum requirement today to print his shopping list

... you convince greenpeace headquarters, that prime95 is a distributed neural net to simulate drug effects in primates. No more primate research labs :)

. . . you buy each of your six children a PC, that they can use it for whatever they want, *but* stipulate that they must leave it powered on running prime95 at all times.

you need counselling from all the traumatic stress of watching stats, and worrying about if you might be able to find a prime.
