Three birthdays, and a coincidence involving powers of prime numbers [Feb. 6th, 2007|08:29 am]
Douglas Spencer
The very warmest of birthday greetings to sparktastic, who today reaches a prime-power number of years. Happy birthday to alex_holden too, who is the same age. Also to latexiron whose age, while not a prime power, is fannishly significant -- and who, by reaching that age, ensures that between the three of them their average age is a power of a different prime.

Thanks a lot :)

I've just learned what a prime power is...

I'm clearly far too transparent.

Erm, except the prime power business is off, I'm afraid!

It says "repeats every Feb 6th from 1980".

I don't think they're all worth repeating. 1996 was pretty good - the only day I've ever got to stay home due to snow.

I made a comment but maybe it's a spoiler so I deleted it.
