I can't even begin to understand this, but I will take your word that it's cool.

Jan: That's OK. I'll make it easy.
A prime number is a number that can can only be divided into equally by 1 and itself. These are the numbers that don't play well with others.

That 11 CONSECUTIVE (key word which I don't know how to put into italics) prime numbers add up to 2011 is one of those wonderfully quirky things that some of us love about math.
