2023 is not a prime

My brain woke up ungodly early this morning and it was off to the races. Work, life, philosophy, and... math.

I laid in bed, trying to fall back to sleep, but found my mind wandering. I asked, "Is 2023 prime?" I was surprised to discover: No. When I realized 7 was a divisor of it.

Divisors: 1, 7, 17, 119, 289, 2023

YouTuber shares the nitty gritty on his income from the channel

This was posted in October but I only just came across it:

I started Brick Experiment Channel in December 2017 and got accepted to YouTube Partner Program in June 2018. Now, October 2022, the total earnings are 664 thousand USD. That is 12500 USD per month. This is the money Google sends to my bank account, from which I pay taxes.

Brick Experiment Channel total: subscribers: 2.9 million video views: 705 million uploads: 65 total earnings: 664 000 USD avg earnings per month: 12 500 USD RPM: 0.94 Playback-based CPM: 3.20

So, over five years, it has averaged out to $132,800 a year, though the actualities of that number are likely more of an exponential pay out curve rather than linear.

Feature Request: Customizable YouTube Player Buttons

I wish YouTube let me customize the buttons on its player. I really miss the "jump back" double tap on YouTube when I'm on the desktop. I know I can do it via the "j" button, but I'd love to have it be mouse clickable rather than requiring a keyboard stroke.
