      You predict 28 primes (7*8/2) less than 114
      Here are the first 30 primes:

      In[1]:= Map[Prime, Range[1, 30]]

      Out[1]=
      {2, 3, 5, 7, 11, 13, 17, 19, 23, 29, 31, 37, 41, 43, 47, 53, 59, 61, 67, 71, 73, 79, 83, 89, 97, 101, 103, 107, 109, 113}

      They're called bugs.
      Personally I love 'em as they pay my wages.
      Except when they're my own bugs, that is.

        These messages about Goldbach's Conjecture are not
        supposed to be to this mailing list (also the Riemann Hypothesis).

        There are separate mailing lists for these.


        Kermit says.


        Milton! You surprise me.


        Goldbach's conjecture IS about prime numbers. It's doesn't matter that
        there exist mailing lists specifically about Goldbach's conjecture.
