Well, I thought it was that element of the trump didn't want to wait for that really struck home,

Basically, I think what I'll in mixed news now, which I'm calling Maths NEWS before Harry comes on, because it's the right way to say it. The world's largest prime number has been discovered at more than twenty three million digits long, it's known as MS
seventy seven million, two hundred and thirty, two thousand nine hundred and seventeen for short, which was my nickname in high school when it comes to
discovering numbers. I don't know if you can say discovered when you mean counted up to the new prime number was usually found on boxing day by the great internet Miller, seen prime search otherwise known, as gives it
collaboration which harness the number crunching power of nodes, slash, volunteers, computers, all over the world and uh
it's cold well and professor of mathematics, who runs a website on the largest prime numbers at the University of Tennessee, said. I'm surprised it was found this quickly. We expected it to take longer, and he said it's like
finding dead cats on the road. You don't expect to find two so close to one another which I'm not even going

Those of us who are interested in them.
I mean I guess that goes for people who, like finding

The figure was arrived at by calculating two to the power:

Almost all other international level, strong man, looks like an aggressively large bearded giant baby. I love the world's
this man competition, because it does indeed to tell you who's. The strongest man in the world is, if you don't know what the international strongman competition is, is a very big strong men do things like carry heavy things, pick up heavy things and drag everything's like cars and planes to prove who is the strongest man in the world? It's a great sport. I mean it's, so it's so primitive.
like it, did perfect since the dawn of men that women who like I can totally pick up that big thing more than you. How can you not be
fascinated by a sport with guys
regularly lift things so big and with such strain that their heads spontaneously burst open and stop bleeding, not like a nose bleed and the like part of the head just springs a leak, because that
trying so hard did that happen this year? Oh yes,
more than once, a couple of nose bleeds one mouse blade and one just to help the sort of thing it's a better sport than so many uh
so I'm not going to say it's better than Cricket Andy, but that's only 'cause. I want to get booked on the Buick Lincoln think about it. This way, it's like the first sport after action
fighting and pretend fighting it's lifting heavy things and dragging airplanes and then of
sleep things like throwing stuff, which is, I guess where cricket comes in strong.
It is always in some out of the Way Tax Haven country this year in held in Gaborone, Botswana. So you

It's is hard to remind yourself when a man is doing a sport where competitors regularly spring import, prompt you blood, fountains out of their skulls, that his half paralyzed face is due to

Well, we are joined now from the very same. So all of the snow fall clips in Queens New York by the high coldness fugitive, already called about Horia how how all things in this mobile clips? What would get advice here right? You were getting bites, it will go the you look outside and it does why this trumps, America, and everywhere I mean, if you look at New York, you would assume that he was electable here. It's just horrendous, I'm stuck in a in my parents, home I mean it's really the bare minimum. I let let me say to you this way: I'm making coffee with the cure a coffee maker well run. I have no access to a coffee shop, Michael the I mean it doesn't even by by thinking about to think that this can happen in the
twenty eight saying puts everything in perspective. I mean I'm not wearing clothes, but that has nothing to do with the bomb. Cyclone smoke come up with the. So essentially what is happening is I you, physical, sat off of America, that if it's a you all usually cold and whites like the halls of government, maybe I can make fun of a tragedy like this were in the middle of something really intense. Like again, I I am unable to leave this home, I physically in a
but it's just very cold. Are you in your parents, home with your parents no date late today? They left for work, you can you can get hurt. It's just been described as a ball
cyclone. So what what? What exactly? How? What? What form is this taken in New York? Well, a bomb cyclone in America is different than bomb cyclones in other places, because it's neither a bomb nor a cyclone. Well, there's just been a lot of snow
Right, ok, well, hurry! If Christmas movies have taught me nothing being snowed in as an opportunity to resolve all of your family issues and find the love of your life. Well, I think that probably result 'cause. My parents are not in the house right now and I'm alone, with my circles,
tell me at least hurry that greets is still running. I I wish I had thought of that. That would have been a good idea, as opposed to being forced to eat indian food or whatever it is. I think people make here
Well, how are we do hope that you managed to sell just threw the rest of the wintry Armageddon that has been unleashed on America by the force?

that's because of the climate in the entertainment industry, love that will be. Those will be my last words on the vehicle.
Hey, never mind creating a brand new island, so you can get drunk on New year's Eve NEWS now, and some people in New Zealand have responded to an alcohol ban in the area in almost God, like
way by creating a new island on which to sit and drink alcohol like some kind of cross between Zeus, Dionysus and whatever other god. You want to throw into the equation
they built at that, like a tiny sand,
the sea just off
in an estuary in Coromandel and then claimed it was in international waters and therefore not affect
the local alcohol ban
yeah and the construction injected it admiration from the police rather than Sentra inspected. John Kelly commented that's creative thinking. If I'd known about it, I probably would have joined them which have
