Because he lived centuries before it was mathematically proven not to
exist, Fred devoted his life to the search for the highest prime number.
Saying goodbye to all his friends, he packed all his belongings into his
knapsack and set off. For years he roamed the countryside, counting to
himself, visiting wise men, discussing factorization and differential
calculus with his fellow man. For a short period he became confused as to
the definition of 'highest' and climbed Mount Everest, checking house
numbers along the way. Unfortunately, since he scaled the North face, all
the numbers were even. By this time Fred was getting pretty discouraged.
