"Evil will triumph if good men...and women do nothing."

my adaptation of a quote by Edmund Burke.

In mathematics
  • Forty-one is the 13th smallest prime number. It is also the sum of the first six prime numbers (2+3+5+7+11+13), and the sum of 3 primes (11+13+17).  
  • Forty-One is the sum of two squares, 42 + 52 .  Adding up the sum of divisors for 1 through 7 yields 41. 
  • 41 is the smallest integer whose reciprocal has a five-digit repetend. That is a consequence of the fact that 41 is a factor of 99999.
  • It is a centered square number. 

In science

  • The atomic number of niobium.

In life
  • My age 
  • Tuesday was my 41st birthday and it was a fabulous day. We went to a High School Honor Band concert and out to dinner and some shopping. I am proud to be 41 and happy too! 
  • Just don't tell my Mom...she said 41 makes her feel old.

  1. Happy Birthday and many happy returns.
    I hit the double nickle earlier this year, and that feels old.
