+ FIVE is the only prime written with an equal (prime) number of distinct vowels and consonants, i.e., IE & FV. [Beedassy]

+ Eugen J. Ionascu and collaborators were the first to establish that there can be no more than 5 Heron triangles (i.e., integer-sided triangles with integral areas) with two fixed prime sides. [Beedassy]

+ There is one chance in 5 for a random number on the number line to be an evil number. [Beedassy]

+ The only prime that is equidistant from a pair of primes by a prime (2) and also from a pair of nonprimes by a nonprime (4). [Beedassy]

+ The smallest prime p such that both 2p + 1 and 2p - 1 (= Mp) are primes. Note that both 2Mp - 1 and 2Mp - 1 are also primes. [Beedassy]

+ The smallest prime p such that p! + 1 is the square of a prime with a prime number of digits. [Beedassy]
