Only known instance where four consecutive primes, p, for which 2^{p}1 is prime?
That is, where p_{n} is the nth prime and M(x) represents 2^{x}1, then: M(p_{n}) M(p_{n+1}) M(p_{n+2}) M(p_{n+3}) are all prime.

I thought this was too easy
The only 4 numbers so far that are:
 exponents of MPs  an MP 7 for example: and The next candidate may be a few years away: (TEX wasn't behaving here) 2^{31} = 2147483647 2^{2147483647} 1 = xxx Is xxx a prime?
