Not a thing  but on the internet I need to take extra steps to see whether I'm dealing with the genuine article or merely a fauxron.

The Internet is so cool. When I took an IQ test in the 9th grade, I scored in the 9899 percentile overall, but I was a complete ass. Now, I'm mentally ill and working at KFC, but I tend to give a damn about people in general. Mental illness, the answer to the world's problems. Just make everybody mentally ill for five years, right after high school would be a good time. Note: That last paragraph is BS and is intentionally BS.

It has no factor <= n is all that is obvious.
But SQR(n!) > n+1 for all n > 4 so there is plenty of scope for finding factors (n=5 being the first case). Last fiddled with by davieddy on 20070919 at 12:18

I've seen some pretty blatant cranks, but this one takes the cake.
