Prime Numbers...Four Proofs

How do you prove that all odd numbers are prime?

Logician
Hypothesis: All odd numbers are prime
Proof:
If a proof exists, then the hypothesis must be true
The proof exists; you're reading it now.
From 1 and 2 follows that all odd numbers are prime


Physicist
3 is a prime
5 is a prime
7 is a prime
9 is not prime, experimental error


Mathematician
3 is a prime
5 is a prime
7 is a prime
by induction all the rest are prime


Engineer
3 is a prime
5 is a prime
7 is a prime
9 is a prime


If necessity is the mother of invention
Then I'd like to kill the guy who invented this
The numbers come together in some kind of 3rd dimension
A regular algebraic bliss.
Let's start with something simple
Like one and one ain't three
And two plus two will never get you five
There's fractions in my subtraction
And X don't equal Y
But my homework is bound to multiply

Math sucks (math sucks)
Math sucks (math sucks)
I'd like to burn this textbook, I hate this stuff so much!
Math sucks (math sucks)
Math sucks (math sucks)
Sometimes I think that I don't know that much--But math sucks!

I got so bored with my homework
I turned on the T.V.
The beauty contest winners were all smiling through their teeth
They asked the new Miss America "Hey babe, can you add up all those bucks?"
She looked puzzled then just said, "Math Sucks!"

Math sucks (math sucks)
Math sucks (math sucks)
You don't even have to spell it, all you have to do is yell it
Math sucks (math sucks)
Math sucks (math sucks)
Sometimes I think that I don't know that much--But math sucks!

Geometry, trigonometry, and if that don't tax your brain
There are numbers to big to be named (too big to be named)
Numerical precision is a science with a mission
And I think it's gonna drive me insane

Parents fighting with their children and the Congress can't agree,
Teachers and their students are all jousting constantly
Management and labor keep rattling old sabers,
Quacking like those Peabody ducks

Math sucks (quack quack)
Math sucks (quack quack)
You don't even have to spell it, all you have to do is yell it!
Math sucks (math sucks)
Math sucks (math sucks)
Sometimes I think that I don't know that much--But math sucks!

Math sucks, math sucks, math sucks the big one
Math sucks, math sucks, math sucks the big one

Hearts are worn in these dark ages
You're not alone in this story's pages
The light has fallen amongst the living and the dying
And I'll try to hold it in
Yeah I'll try to hold it in

The world's on fire it's more than I can handle
I tap into the water and try to bring my share
I try to bring more, more than I can handle
I'll bring it to the table
I'll bring what I am able

I watch the heavens but I find no calling
Something I can do to change whats coming
Stay close to me while the sky's falling
I don't wanna be left alone, don't wanna be alone

The world's on fire it's more than I can handle
I tap into the water and try to bring my share
I try to bring more, more than I can handle
I'll bring it to the table
I'll bring what I am able

Hearts break, hearts mend, love still hurts
Visions clash, planes crash, still there's talk of
Saving souls, still the cold's closing in on us

We part the veil on our killer sun
Stray from the straight line on this short run
The more we take, the less we become
A fortune of one man means less for some

The world's on fire it's more than I can handle
I tap into the water and try to bring my share
I try to bring more, more than I can handle
I'll bring it to the table
I'll bring what I am able
The world's on fire it's more than I can handle
I tap into the water and try to bring my share
I try to bring more, more than I can handle
I'll bring it to the table
I'll bring what I am able

For Verena

As quickly as She waltzed into my life, She was gone
But she left my heart different, Singing a different Song
With her smile and love of life came nothing but Fun
And she was The Truth that could do no wrong
She shared her love of Music, Her tune always Kind
And yet she would tear when a friend's heart would bleed
Who would care for her was always on my mind
For her I wished only goodness, for her to have her needs
Her door would never close on anyone no matter the hour
Verena is my friend, It fills my joy to have met this flower


All around us things are changing
Seasons come and seasons go
Very few things last forever
Deep inside our hearts we know

Were forever friends
Bond by love that time can't take away
Forever friends caring in a special kind of way
Heart to heart and hand in hand
We'll stand until the end
Loves forever when your forever friends

We're all children of the father
In his keeping and his care
And the spirit that he gives us
Is the love we're meant to share

Were forever friends
Bond by love that time can't take away
Forever friends caring in a special kind of way
Heart to heart and hand in hand
We'll stand until the end
Loves forever when your forever friends

And though we know it's time to say goodbye
We will always be together
And here's the reason why.

Were forever friends
Bond by love that time can't take away
Forever friends caring in a special kind of way
Heart to heart and hand in hand
We'll stand until the end
Loves forever when your forever friends

Anita

I met her at the Fair
She let me ride for free
Me and her brothers raced without a care
A warm summer night to meet a girl as nice as she
I found her to be intelligent and caring
An Aggie girl who loved Bubble Tea
With her tatoo and hair she was daring
She calls herself Muffin, crazy it seems to Me
But she is my friend Anita
A senioritta I think is a chica bonita


What is cinco cervezas I really don't know
But this pretty little senorita said it and I liked how it flowed
What is venga mi casa I really don't know
From the way that she smiled I could tell how the story would go


Chica bonita you pretty like a rose
Mi senorita mi love how you a pose
Dame un beso you hot and it shows
Toca mi vida and everybody knows repeat


Baby baby baby
Tell me what you wanna do and where you wanna go
Ain't no need to rush it baby we can take it slow
I swear it must be cupid shooting arrows with his bow
I notice in your eyes a certain glow
Have me wondering now
Is it really me or tell me do you feel the same
I feel like I'm in love and I don't even know your name
I know what I am saying to you may sound pretty lame
Your love is like an everlasting flame

Chica bonita you pretty like a rose
Mi senorita mi love how you a pose
Dame un beso you hot and it shows
Toca mi vida and everybody knows repeat

Lovely lady would you
Please give me a signal so I know you understand
Maybe I should start by making gestures with my hand
Girl you're like a rising star and I'm your biggest fan
My sweet bonita diva with the tan
Got me thinking baby
We could make a life together on the ocean shore
Paradise is where you are I'm ready to explore
Can never get enough of you it's all about amour
And happiness is knocking at your door

Chica bonita you pretty like a rose
Mi senorita mi love how you a pose
Dame un beso you hot and it shows
Toca mi vida and everybody knows repeat
