Things That Make Skor Special

brainAnd now it's time for the premier installment of Things That Make Skor Special, the posts where Skor shares little secrets about himself that help him stand out from the "normal" persons in the population.

Today's tidbit is on the subject of car stereos. Skor never sets the volume on his car stereo to prime numbers. That means no 7, 11, 13, 17, 19, 23, 29, or many others. In fact, Skor prefers to set the car stereo volume to either perfect squares (4, 9, 16, 25...) or powers of two (4, 8, 16, 32...).

Is there a reason for this? No. He just won't do it. And you can't make him.

So there.

What about 2? That's a prime number AND a power of two! Or how about 1? That's a perfect square, a power of two AND a prime number!

And what happens if your passenger adjusts your radio to the closest prime number while you are making a pit stop? Can your ear hear the difference between 16 and 17?

Eh? Eh?

What happens if the car stereo doesn't number the volume settings?

Yeah, some of us use cheap $26 (that's not a prime number btw) am/fm/cassette without anything digital that we got from ebay. My radio is always 1 or 0. On or off.
