Actually it was because 7 is a prime number, and they are spooky!

BEWARE THE PRIME NUMBER!

A logarithm is just a misspelled algorithm.

### Re: Why is six afraid of seven?

Or maybe 6 was afraid of 7 simply because 7 is bigger then him.

Or perhaps 6 was afraid of 7 because the two of them together make 13, an unlucky number.

Or maybe 7 threatened to differentiate 6, reducing him to zero! (runs screaming from the room)

### Re: Why is six afraid of seven?

Or maybe 6 was afraid 7 would ask him the inevitable question: "why was 6 afraid of 7?" because he'd heard it 7 times. ;-)

I heard of that joke before.

mikau, it's just a joke. No need for so many posts in a row, in my opinion.

If you added a new joke with a new topic on the forum, that would be better, because I want to see more jokes.

Maybe 6 was in a bar and heard some really bad things about 7.

6 saw the movie Se7en.  That would be enough for me.

### Re: Why is six afraid of seven?

Why is 6 scared of 7?

Because 7 8 9.

What proof do you have that 7 8 9?

Well, my son who was learning to count said to me yesterday "1, 2, 3, 4, 5, once I caught a fish alive. 6, 7, 8, 10, then I let them go again."

Why is 6 not scared of 7 anymore?

Because 6 8 8. Thus, 7 can't eat anything anymore.

I am much better looking.

In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

I agree with you regarding the satisfaction and importance of actually computing some numbers. I can't tell you how often I see time and money wasted because someone didn't bother to run the numbers.
