2011: The Coolest Number I’ve Seen in Years

From Lawrence Bernstein’s InfomarketingBlog:

“The definition of a prime number (in case you were out smoking during math class) is a number that can be divided evenly only by 1 or itself.

“The number 2011, it turns out, is the sum of 11 consecutive prime numbers: 2011=157+163+167+173+179+181+191+193+197+199+211.”

Is that cool or what?

(Even though it has nothing to do with business, marketing or copywriting.)
