Default Fun with the new Mersenne prime exponent

M#40 has exponent p = 20996011. Anyone notice that...

(1) p-1 = 2*3^4*5*7^2*23^2 is extremely smooth, and

(2) If you punch p into your hand calculator and turn the display upside down, you see 11096602. Beside the fact that p is "upside-downable," can anyone see anything special about its upsidedown partner d?

If you ask google, 11096602 leads you to an article about Coagulopathy of Liver Disease

110-96602 points to an article about Lithofacies and Palynostratigraphy of Some Cretaceous and Paleocene Rocks, Surghar and Salt Range Coal Fields, Northern Pakistan

Maybe 11096602 is slightly deranged or had a bad childhood?

Oops, it's 11096-602 pointing to those things in Pakistan. Sorry.

If you calculate 110 minus 096602 (-96 492) that leads to a link to an Oasis Promo CD

Wow - just came across this old thread while doing some housekeeping - and I must confess, I have no clue what I was on about with my "can anyone see anything special?" query.

Early-onset Alzheimer's sucks. :(

HEY!!! I'M supposed to be the deranged nutball!!!

(Or maybe I'm only a deranged nutball at the Free-DC forum)

/me thinks about a guy named Robert, the most unstable person I've ever decided I liked. Now HE was a nutball. Had a temper, but never hit anybody that I know of.
