...you read this:

http://www.newscientist.com/article....ine-news_rss20

and your first thought is that this would be the perfect way to power your Prime95 farm.

...you read this:

http://www.newscientist.com/article.ns?id=dn7448

and immediately email the researchers to demand that Prime95 be the first program to be ported.

(guilty of the first, though not the second :))

...the addition of yet another new CPU to your farm finally makes the air hot enough to cook food, thus eliminating the need for an oven.

You celebrate by selling your oven and using the money to buy yet another CPU.

...you actually talk to your wife about using \2^{25,964,951}-1 and \2^{24,036,583}-1 as middle names for your kids and not only does she know what you are talking about but she also comes back with a quick response of "We can't do that... then one would always tease the other that their middle name is bigger..."

... you find the thought of hearing said children's full name used when they get in trouble humorous. "[Enter child's name here] M42 Gilchrist! Stop reserving exponents and finish your calculus homework!" Or if you got really mad - "[Enter child's name here] \2^{25,964,951}-1 Gilchrist! If I've told you once, I've told you your middle name times. Stop differentiating at the dinner table!"

... being a forward-thinking person, you write letters to EFF asking for the declaration of a prize for the first 10 billion digit prime.
