  1. 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. ._.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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
