  1. I have a question. 5:25~5:30, "But 6 and 5 share no divisors, nor does 6 and 7, or 6 and any other prime." Number 2 and 6 are both prime, yet their common divisor is 2, isn't it?

  2. Really enjoyed this. Normally I operate like that south American tribe that have no numbers over 3 – 123…lots – but I got into this and also learned more about the lifecycle of the cicada as an unexpected bonus.

  3. Such an inspiring speaker. Not only is the topic imaginative, the presenter is very genuine and really communicates his passion for prime numbers.

  4. The sound presenter makes with his mouth is disgusting, I thought I'd watch entire talk, unfortunately couldn't afford more than 2 minutes.
