Two hits

The question: "why do hash functions use prime numbers?"  I knew I'd seen someone suggest it wasn't necessary in researching this topic last week.  (They cited this, if you care.)

The Google search: "prime hash".

Result #1: Why do hash functions use prime numbers?

Result #2: Prime Hanger Steak with Crispy Hash Browns and Pierre Poivre Sauce

Mmmm, prime hanger steak with crispy hash browns and pierre poivre sauce!

I think it was lunchtime at that point.

Also, did you know the reproductive cycle of cicadas is 17 years?

    Thanks. Did you try the steak recipe also? 🙂

  3. 🙂 - Unfortunately no. But they do look as palatable and juicy as my blog to me. 😉
