# Perfect page count

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Perfect page count

Sorry, I know that this is incredibly nerdy and not cycling related, but

THE PAGE COUNT RIGHT NOW IS 1024! A PERFECT POWER OF 2! HOORAY!

Ok, its spring break so the nerdiness needle has been pulled for a few days, and I had to let the inner nerd out of his box for a while. Thanks for indulging.

1023 is divisble by 3. 2^n-1 is only a prime if it is prime. If 2^n-1 is prime it's a Mersenne prime. Unfortunately 3|2^(10k)-1, neat huh.

uh, .... huh?

Was there a bike involved here, somehow?

You'd think with an MS is Statistics that I could somehow know what the H3LL you all are talking about.

I have to go back to my regression models..........

Pft...regression models are boring. I much prefer two way analysis of variance.

ya think i went through 18 hours of stats to run regression models? It does pay the bills however. Now, some structural equation modeling, mmm.
