We Have A New Prime Number, And It’s 23 Million Digits Long

(from FiveThirtyEight)

Betting tip: current Vegas odds are running 6-1 that M77232917 (the new prime’s nickname) is actually divisible by 5. I’m checking this now using the calculator on my vintage Palm device. I plan to bet $100 to win $600!!
