She's a Witch - Burn her! :)

Post by kennyc » Fri Aug 16, 2013 4:15 pm

....I really like even numbers, and I like heavily divisible numbers. Twelve is my lucky number—I just love how divisible it is. I don’t like odd numbers, and I really don’t like primes. When I turned 37, I put on a strong face, but I was not looking forward to 37. But 37 turned out to be a pretty amazing year. Especially considering that 36 is divisible by twelve!”

A few things may strike you while listening to Marissa Mayer deliver this riff, prompted by a question about how her life has changed since her son, Macallister, was born last fall. The first is that she’s not kidding about being a geek. Mayer talks about numbers as if they were people, refers casually to x- and y-axes, and drops terms like stochastic factor (it means a random distribution) in conversation. On business issues, she speaks awkwardly, piling as many likes into a sentence as Alicia Silverstone in Clueless. But when she gets on to technology, she turns effortlessly articulate.

This just makes her so much hotter to me.

I like 13, too. But, I'll be 42, soon, then I'll understand the meaning of life.

I'm well beyond that, it was nothing really, just some tuna and thanks from the dolphins.

I'm rapidly approaching 5 13's :D

I'm the other way; I dislike being a number that's easily divisible, because it feels like the number can crumble away into lesser numbers. Being a prime number feels safe, secure, like it's founded on bedrock and can't erode no matter what the universe throws at it. Well...except fractions. If the universe starts throwing fractions at my prime numbers, I will be very unhappy.
