Prime Numbers

You know... sometimes I even amaze myself. Just when I think that I have posted the geekiest thing I can find (like the Millenium Falcon computer), another, even geekier thing comes along, and I outdo myself. And so here it is, all of the prime numbers lower than 1,000:

235711131719 2329313741434753
5961677173798389 97101103107109113127131
137139149151157163167173 179181191193197199211223
227229233239241251257263 269271277281283293307311
313317331337347349353359 367373379383389397401409
419421431433439443449457 461463467479487491499503

947953967971977983991997
If you want more (and I know you do), you can download the first 15,000,000 prime numbers here.

Maybe I will follow up with a discussion of why I was looking for a prime numbers... you know: hashing algorithms and constant-time lookups and all that. But why bore you with the "why" when I can simply provide useless data and say, "why not"?

OMG! You are, quite possibly, one of the biggest geeks ever. Good thing you have other qualities to make up for it ;) Still, this post just might have tipped the scales...
