Not quite sure what you are trying to say here. Do you have something of value to share?

That's a bit like saying you should try to hold your breath while subjected to a vacuum....

Challenge: write an excel macro that would actually do computations: you open a MP.xlsx file and numbers start showing  then you could say that Excel can be used to find Mersenne primes Quote:
"Oxygen is used for discovering new Mersenne primes. Because w/o O_{2} there would be no life, so there would have been no Mersenne primes." "Carbon .... /the same/" These statements are usually referred to as vacuous

SCUBA divers are taught to never give a puff of air to a "free diver". Why? Because they invariably return to the surface holding their breaths. And then their lungs explode. We are taught that if we ever have to surface from depth, it's important that we breath out as much gas as we can on the way up. Gasses outflowing from our blood can be managed later; breathing is relatively more important.

Retina posted about discovering, which I responded to. (I hope at least some got the humor of using CEMPLLA 1.0 as the counterexample.)
