Prime numbers? They can only divide themselves by one and themselves. And, to the exception of 2, they are all odd numbers. I think that sums it all...
with the exceptions of 2&3 they are always within 1 of a multiple of 6

I tried looking for prime numbers (besides 2 and 3) that were not within the range of 1 of a multiple of 6... I couldn't find any.
they all are, there is also the still unproven theory that all even nonprimes may be represented as the sum of two primes
