    Now we just want a quick reason why any even number is the sum of two prime numbers.
    It's pretty obvious when you try it but I'd like to know why...
    Or why there are the same number of natural numbers as even numbers
    Rememeber anything you read on the internet was probably written by some guy sitting at home in his underpants! Including this !!

    That one's easy.
    Helium, because I'm worth it.
    Waterboarding at Guantanamo Bay sounded like a radical holiday opportunity until I looked it up.

    The internet tells me that if you shuffle a pack of cards properly, chances are that exact order has never been seen before in the whole history of the universe.

    It also tells me that there's not enough space in the known universe to write out a googolplex (10 to the power of ten to the power of 100) on paper. Hmmmm?

    Sounds reasonable as there are 8 x 10 to the power 67 ways of shuffling a standard pack. Thats a really big number - similar to the number of atoms in the Earth -there have only been about 4 x 10 to the power 17 seconds since the formation of the universe at the big bang!

    10^67 is roughly the number of atoms in 100,000,000,000,000,000 Earths.
