#5 Prime Numbers

It may seem obvious, but nerds really really love numbers.  This is true both in the reasonable sense--enjoying statistics that prove obscure points of view like Angel being a better show than Buffy because of ratings, memorizing far too many digits of some number as a bizarre party trick, or optimizing the mileage of a Nissan Pathfinder--and also in the not-so-reasonable activity of replacing perfectly good words and concepts with uninterpretable numeric counterparts. More exciting than all that though, are numbers with characteristics that can be described to completely disinterested parties while on an unsuccessful first date.
