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 faux-ron.

I've got nothing against morons! Many of my friends are morons! My parents are both morons! In fact .. I'm a moron! Yes - that's it! I'm very, very moronic! I'm flamingly moronic! Tell them, Jerry!

Ah, yes, that may very well be so. Luckily, any real moron would not realize that they had been unwittingly [or would it be nit-wittingly?] insulted.

I'm still curious how the thread starter is posting from an IP listed by WHOIS as belonging to Mercedes Benz Stuttgart, however... bas whois data? Our moron is a script kiddie? Debasheez Snr really works for MB and doesn't know that junior is using the office PC to post drivel to internet number theory forums?

The Internet is so cool.

When I took an IQ test in the 9th grade, I scored in the 98-99 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).

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