You're da man! No, not a mistake, just insufficient information as 0 + 2 = 1 + 1. My fault, actually.

Speaking of prime-related coincidences, in early 1979 I went to Law School for a couple of weeks before quitting. My candidate number to the admittance exam was 109. In July that year I joined the military. My student number in the Air Force technical school was 79-1097. Three years later when I began a Physics course at the university my student number was 82-0971-5. Except for 82, all numbers here are primes, mostly involving the digits 0, 1, 7 and 9. But there's more: my second bank account number in 1981, six or seven digits long, involved only those four digits, like my number at the Air Force (not related to my initial student number) and my number as an EE student some years later.

Gerson.

Well, all these coincidences surely are not against all odds... :P

Greetings,
Massimo
