I hereby declare that I have completed testing ALL exponents above 43112609 up to 1 trillion. And they are all prime! I hereby claim myself as the first discoverer for all these Mersenne numbers. Yay for me. So now it is up to all of you to go ahead and test them as double checks and you will see I am correct.

Now, if by chance you test some exponent and find it to be composite, well, umm, sorry about that, I guess my computer had a problem. Of course when you test an exponent and it comes up prime then remember that I found it first, you are only double checking.

Please send my EFF prize cheque promptly, I badly need the money to buy lasers for my pet sharks. Thanks.

PS: I don't care about split infinitives. So what. It was good enough for Star Trek.
