That's it, that's it, let it out. You will feel better.

Scream on top of you lungs, like a spoiled child that you are.

This is far more than the number of multiples expected by chance.

This is the answer of GreatHouse…

Before GreatHouse, I noticed that things on mathoverflow...
I doubt they are all coincidences

doubt is one thing, Proof is entirely different.

Default Proof

I think it doesn't take a genius to see that this is far more than the number of multiples expected by chance. Proofing something is completely out of reach for me. I just noticed that the exponents leading to a probable prime are not random at all.

Proving something doesn't always take genius either. here's a relevant proof on a superset of these numbers for example:

Let a=(2n+1,n) be the natural number formed when concatenating 2n+1 and n, both natual numbers together, it follows that a= (2n+1)*10^d + n , where d is the number of decimal digits in n .

Regrouping we get (2n*10^d+n)+10^d the first group of which is a multiple of any divisor of n . Therefore, we can conclude that any gcd(n,a) also divides 10^d which only has prime factors 2 and 5.
This then implies that if 2 and 5 don't divide into n then they can't divide into the value a either.

You could try learning the meaning of the words you use. Tell us what you think "not random at all" means. The first step toward "proof" is using words in the way mathematics uses them.

You don't even know if Dr Greathouse was being sarcastic when you quote him!

You don't know how common these occurences should be, if "random" did describe the processes. How about you try to figure out how often these things would happen if they *were* random? You can't define "not random", because you don't even know what "random" looks like. Discovering arbitrary numerological trivia about numbers of no specific import can be done with any list of numbers; so what? Stop hand-waving about "not a coincidence" until you figure out what "coincidence" would look like.

Better, read the entire wiki about Poisson probability distribution. There lies the first step toward a grasp of "random", so you might quit your "THIS MEANS SOMETHING!" crap.

Do your own homework.
