Luke McKinney: 5 Reasons Even Gun Owners Should Hate The NRA (Cracked)
Listen, United States: You look bad when there's a mass shooting, but you look insane when people deny that guns had anything to do with it. The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result. That's insane even when the thing isn't letting almost any asshole have a gun. Also, you need to stop letting almost any asshole have a gun. Which means you need to stop the board of the National Rifle Association. Here's why ...
Two is the smallest and the first prime number, and the only even prime number (for this reason it is sometimes called "the oddest prime"). The next prime is three. Two and three are the only two consecutive prime numbers.
mj was first, and correct, with:
That would be
The number 2. Since all other even numbers are divisible by 2, none of
them can be primes.

I grew up along US Route 219, but in the grand scheme of highways, it's rather minor. If the question had been phrased for all highways, then the answer would have been 'odd numbers', but the question was specific to major Interstate Highways.
Well, that's an easy one, and you only have to count to two (2) to reach it.
John I from Hawai'i says,
The number 2 is the only even prime number.
I asked the great Eenterwebz for the answer, since I'm not a mathlete.
Big fire near here; smoke isn't a problem unless the wind shifts, and that's not likely.
Two hundred structures threatened and mandatory evacuations…scary stuff.
Lois, you and Dale crack me up. Keep up the wackitude; it makes my day.
Lois Of Oregon answered:
Hey...I'm beginning to see a pattern in the trivia this week! Today's answer is what we used to chant at my alma mater, Thomas Crapper High School: "We're Number Two"!
DJ Useo responded:
The answer is "two". I'm not sure what you "yankees" call it. lol

Two or 2 is the one and only even prime number. 1.1 million is the number of fracked wells in America.
And now for something fracked up. Trump/Coulter 2016
Joe S replied:
Math! Math! Math! What do I know of math? Well I do know that 2 is the only even prime number. For some reason I remember that from High School. I retain stuff like that for some inexplicable reason. Actually I took four years of Math in High School. I did well in Algebra I, so-so in Algebra II, LOVED Plain and Solid Geometry and really sucked at Trigonometry. In college I was a History major. In the Air Force I was....wait I can't tell you, it's classified. Later on in life I became a machinist and used Trig every day. Life is strange ain't it.
Oh, and a prime number is a number that can only be divided by itself and 1. Oh and those of you with iPhones, have you asked Siri the answer to 0 divided by 0? No? Ask her.

The state of Washington can require a pharmacy to deliver medicine even if the pharmacy's owner has a religious objection, a federal appeals court ruled on Thursday, the latest in a series of judgements on whether religious believers can opt out of providing services.
The ruling, from the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco, came in a case filed by pharmacists who objected to delivering emergency contraceptives. The 9th Circuit overturned a lower court that had said the rules were unconstitutional.
The U.S. Supreme Court last year allowed closely held corporations to seek exemptions from the Obamacare health law's contraception requirement.
In Washington, the state permits a religiously objecting individual pharmacist to deny medicine, so long as another pharmacist working there provides timely delivery. The rules require a pharmacy to deliver all medicine, even if the owner objects.
A unanimous three-judge 9th Circuit panel on Thursday decided that the rules are constitutional because they rationally further the state's interest in patient safety. Speed is particularly important considering the time-sensitive nature of emergency contraception, the court said.
Cathy Goldsmith never thought she'd see a brand new development in Seussville.
The Random House associate publishing director is the last remaining employee at the company to have worked with the late Theodor Seuss Geisel, a.k.a. Dr. Seuss.
When he died in 1991, she envisioned future publications featuring his older material. But not a completely new book from him.
On Tuesday, the new Dr. Seuss book "What Pet Should I Get?" will hit shelves with material culled from a box discovered in his home. It comes 25 years after the publication of his last new book, "Oh, the Places You'll Go!" - and it might not be the last.
The annual July tally of endangered orcas is complete, and researchers have counted 81 whales, including four babies born since last winter.
Researchers tracking the southern resident killer whales have photo confirmation of each whale and nobody is missing, said Ken Balcomb, a senior scientist with the Center for Whale Research who keeps the official census of Puget Sound killer whales for the federal government. "They're all here."
The orcas that frequent the inland Washington waters are identified by unique black and white markings or variations in their fin shapes.
The population of 81 orcas is higher than last July's count of 78 whales. But it's still low. Listed as endangered in 2005, the whales are struggling because of pollution, lack of food and other reasons.

Researchers have confirmed the discovery of a marine reptile fossil in the Talkeetna Mountains, the University of Alaska Museum of the North announced Wednesday.
Fossil bones of an elasmosaur, a type of plesiosaur, were found by Anchorage-based fossil collector Curvin Metzler.
Elasmosaurs had extremely long necks and limbs like paddles that allowed them to swim underwater, Patrick Druckenmiller, the museum's earth science curator and a marine fossil expert, said in the announcement.
The species lived about 70 million years ago during the Late Cretaceous period. The marine reptiles lived during the age of dinosaurs but are not classified as dinosaurs because they did not walk on land or fit other dinosaur criteria, museum spokeswoman Theresa Bakker said.
The fossils are the first from an elasmosaur in Alaska.
In a profanity-laced video, Grammy award-winning singer Chris Brown vented his frustration Thursday at being stuck in the Philippines for a second day after running afoul of a politically powerful religious group that filed a fraud complaint against him for a cancelled concert.
Brown was still in the country Thursday evening and had not applied for the emigration clearance he needs to leave Manila, Immigration Bureau spokeswoman Elaine Tan said in a text message to the AP.
The 26-year-old R&B singer performed at a packed concert in Manila on Tuesday but has been prevented from leaving since then.
The dispute traces back to last New Year's Eve when Brown canceled a concert at the 55,000-seat Philippine Arena north of Manila, which is operated by a corporation owned by the politically influential Iglesia ni Cristo religious group.

A flurry of recent stories about Fox News suggests its hosts are obsessed with Donald Trump, but the nation's top cable news outlet actually has focused less of its attention on the Republican candidate for president than has its competitors.
In the five-day period ending late Tuesday, FNC mentioned Trump 496 times compared with 547 for CNN and 620 for MSNBC, according to the media research firm TVEyes.
FNC's coverage of Trump is a hot topic because of a series of negative tweets issued by Rupert Murdoch, the executive chairman of FNC's parent company 21st Century Fox. The Murdoch family also controls News Corp, parent of the Wall Street Journal and the New York Post, both of which have been critical of Trump.
Shortly after Trump disparaged McCain, Murdoch tweeted: "When is Donald Trump going to stop embarrassing his friends, let alone the whole country?" The next day the cover of the Post declared, "Trump is toast" and an editorial in the Journal excoriated Trump and "the conservative media who applaud him," though without identifying specific outlets.
Trump's response to all this came by way of tweets: "Look how small the pages have become @WSJ. Looks like a tabloid - saving money I assume!" Then, amplifying a tweet from one of his fans, Trump tweeted: "@foxandfriends @foxnation tell your owner Murdoch we are turning Fox off if he keeps belittling @realDonaldTrump. No Fox!"
Food companies would not have to disclose whether their products include genetically modified ingredients under legislation passed by the House Thursday.
The House bill is backed by the food industry, which has fought mandatory labeling efforts in several states around the country. The legislation, which passed 275-150, would prevent states from requiring package labels to indicate the presence of genetically modified organisms, or GMOs.
So far, Vermont is the only state set to require the labels. That law will take effect in July 2016 if it survives a legal challenge from the food industry. Maine and Connecticut have also passed laws requiring the labeling, but those measures don't take effect unless neighboring states follow suit.
The country's largest food companies say genetically modified foods are safe and that labels would be misleading. They say a patchwork of laws around the country would be expensive for companies and confusing for consumers.
Russian President Vladimir Putin wants to give Silvio Berlusconi Russian citizenship -- and the job of economy minister -- the disgraced Italian billionaire politician was quoted as saying Thursday.
"In Italy, I have been relegated to the sidelines, but Putin has told me he is willing to give me citizenship, and entrust me with running the economy ministry," La Stampa newspaper quoted him as saying at a dinner party.
"My future? Becoming minister for my friend Putin," the 78-year-old former Italian premier reportedly said.
Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov, however, said that Putin's offer was more "figurative" than real and was merely a show of support for an old friend.
The Dairy Queen in downtown Moorhead has been thumbing its nose at corporate HQ pretty much since it opened in 1949, despite some efforts from the home office to have the store mind its Ds and Qs.
And it's a recipe that seems to be working for one of the few DQs in the country still operating under a 66-year-old contract that allows them to dish up throwback treats alongside the standard corporate-approved items, a combination that turns Main Avenue and 8th Street into a hopping, slightly retro summer hangout.
Though the restaurant shuts down in the winter and unlike newer shops has no indoor seating and no drive-thru, customers gladly line up on the sidewalk for frosty treats no matter what the weather. Two years ago at least 1,200 people showed up on opening day, March 1.
The temperature was 11-below.
Mind you, the Moorhead store still plays the corporate game. To a degree. The lineup of typical DQ treats is featured on the window. But nearby is a "Local Menu" sign that includes a Nathan's-brand hot dog for $1.50, a bowl of chili for $2, a large Polish sausage for $2.75 and the super chili cheese dog for $4. Another poster promotes a "Curly Shake," which is advertised as a shake with a sundae on top, for $3.25.
The star of SundanceTV reality show "Loredana, Esq." was found dead Wednesday in her home in Redondo Beach, Calif.
The body of attorney Loredana Nesci, 47, was discovered when her boyfriend Robert Reagan, 51, called police to report an emergency early Wednesday morning, according to the L.A. Times. Reagan was subsequently arrested on suspicion of murder and is being held on $1 million bail.
Police said the couple had been arguing and that she was either shot or stabbed.
Nesci was known as "the legal diva" on the show that ran for six episodes in 2014 and showed the couple bickering over childcare and home renovations.
She had a son with Reagan, who was not home at the time.
