Take any prime number, say, 27...

Whose prime is 27? I remember that 27 is called So-And-So's Prime because he said in a lecture, "take any prime, say, twenty-seven..." but I can't remember who said this (and googling only gives me pages about how 27 isn't a prime number).

Apparently, cows can't tell that I'm a vegetarian.

I can find plenty about bear safety and mountain lion safety, but little similar info about cattle. What safety measures can I, a city boy, take in order to keep from being stampeded, gored or otherwise killed or injured by cattle as I am a guest in their pastures?

How much to pay for someone to shovel snow off the roof?

We live in the D.C area and have had ice dams on our roof and its starting to cause leaking problems. Nothing drastic, but some water is starting to drip inside of our windows. I put some Deicer in socks and threw them on the gutters to try to clear a path for the water to go, but that seems to be taking forever. Our neighbors have some guys shoveling snow off their roofs and they said they would do the same for us for $500. Is that too much to pay? Our house isn't that large, its a split-level home.

What's this video?

After seeing the George Washington video by Brad Neely, I was reminded of a similar video, but can't seem to find it. It was an alligator(ish) guy riding a jet-ski "across the plains," "smiling at the dames," and having some sort of weapon strapped to his hip. The style was so similar I was convinced it was the same guy but am either worthless at searching or wrong. Anyone know what this was?

How to find bona fide New York intellectuals in New York?

New York intellectuals: where do I find them? Where in the city would I go if I wanted to find intellectuals of the old-school variety, all ready to discuss literature and history, existentialism and poetry, theater and mythology and politics? I know they exist--some older specimens write letters to the New Yorker--but where do these special fauna array to be met and befriended?
