This made me smile 🙂
Damn you, 17, making this harder than it needs to be!
The next prime number would be 59 so… we would basically have to take over most of Canada or some more Caribbean islands.
In the original post somebody commented – “It’s still divisible by itself, which is what will likely happen.”
Good idea, but not DC. I’d go with a different territory, maybe USVI?
So Fuck the virgin islands and American Samoa?
This was on Reddit yesterday.
Or we could get rid of Alabama and Mississippi, and re-combine the Dakotas
the whole point of DC is nonpartisanship, but how about the Virgin Islands?
Counter argument. In base 12 (best base) we are currently at 42 states.
What about Saipan or Samoa?

Why add? Why not merge to go down to 47? CT absorbs RI, MD takes in DE, VT and NH merge.
Still divisible by itself and 1.
So is 47.
Designing a 53-star flag would be a bitch for the same reason though. You’d have to change the rectangle. Hell, fuck it and just write “53” in white
Dc is a district no larger than a city. It should stay that way.
What is DC
Is it cool to have imaginary arguments with yourself on Twitter now
This would also throw 6 more democratic senators in the mix. Absolutely not happening, sorry to say.
But 53 is divisible. 3+50
DC, as in the Capital? No. Surely there’s a more deserving place, and making the Capital its own state would defeat the purpose of it.
Edit: apparently Capitol is only for the building and capital is for everything else. May as well just get rid of the word since it’s so useless and brings unnecessary confusion. ._.
In-*what*? Strange, in school I’m sure we were taught we were invisible.
Better luck next time, American Samoa.
Indivisible except by 1. And itself.
Fifty-three is the 16th prime number. It is also an Eisenstein prime, and a Sophie Germain prime. The sum of the first 53 primes is 5830, which is divisible by 53, a property shared by few other numbers. … 53 cannot be expressed as the sum of any integer and its base-10 digits, making 53 a self number.
Gotta admit, if someone pointed out to Trump just how much he’d go down in history if he actually added a new state to the union… It’d happen.
So would the president be replaced with a prime minister?
Why don’t we start adding more states? Just because 50 is a nice number?
On a related note, some mathlete just proved/solved a 100+ year old math equation/conundrum and will receive $1 Million for the achievement. The equation solves for all prime numbers is what I gathered from the brief read yesterday.
PR, DC, Guam, American Samoa, Virgin Islands, split California into three states and split Texas into two.
If we can find two more options, we can get to 60 and get this done with.
what about American Samoa, the US Virgin Islands, and the Northern Mariana Islands?
Indivisible under Gauss
while we’re at it, let’s break california up into 4 states and texas into 2.
but then in order for everyone to get that we would have to keep indoctrinating people with the pledge of allegiance
Guam is pretty happy not being a state. They pay no federal income tax(instead they pay Guam tax, keeping their money local), solid military presence bringing steady federal dollars into the island, and a little bit more lax immigration policy in Guam and the Northern Marianas.
None of them want to be states because our taxes are so high and they are already poor.
I speak for Long Island when I say “Fuck that, we’re the 51st state”
Guam is unstable and may tip over, so therefore it cannot be a state.
51 is prime too
America, fuck yeah!
Why Guam isn’t a state already blows my mind. For those who haven’t been… it’s like the size of a football field and has a few Dennys restaraunts. Other than that, it’s a fueling station taken by USAF
Or is it possible she just felt clever for knowing prime numbers?
Another wandering territory here to lick my god emperor’s boots. Good job!
