Subject: What about 41?

Personnally I like 41, because it helps me to teach about recursive and
recursively enumerable properties:
I show the students
41 is prime
41+2 = 43 is prime
43 + 4 = 47 is prime
47+6 = 53 is prime
53 +8 = 61 is prime
61+10 = 71 is prime
71+12 = 83 is prime
83 +14 = 97 is prime
Usually at this point some students have enough and say ok, you'll get
prime numbers
