Reminds me of a strip with a guy viewing a graph of the function y=1/x : "They say they'll meet in infinity" And the girl next to him: "How romantic"
GOTOs are a bit like wire coat hangers: they tend to breed in the darkness, such that where there once were few, eventually there are many, and the program's architecture collapses beneath them. (Fran Poretto)
This doesn't seem any more startling than getting 4 heads in a row when flipping a coin. There are an infinite number of primes, so eventually the distribution will even out.
"I intend to live forever - so far, so good." Steven Wright
"I almost had a psychic girlfriend but she left me before we met." Also Steven Wright
"I'm addicted to placebos. I could quit, but it wouldn't matter." Steven Wright yet again.
Yes, they do. But according to the article, what these mathematicians were amazed at was how LONG it takes for them to even out. Much longer than their intuition would have predicted. (They were also surprised at how long it took to notice this peculiarity.)
Those are totally different things. Getting 4 heads in a row is a random outcome that is exactly as likely as getting 4 tails in a row. This discovery is about non-random patterns in the differences between consecutive primes.
You mean the data center or company data thing? For the latter, I don't know about you, but I personally suspect any company that has a glaring typo on their home page. I mean, just how accurate could the data be if they have that oversight?

In the U.S., if no where else, it is National PI Day.
Since I work on the OSISoft PI system, it has additional meaning.
So... enjoy the day; a co-worker brought in 3 pies (chocolate chip, cherry and pecan) for us to enjoy.
