Aha! A willing victim!
Mathematician: 3 is a prime, 5 is a prime, 7 is a prime, and by
induction - every odd integer higher than 2 is a prime.
Physicist: 3 is a prime, 5 is a prime, 7 is a prime, 9 is an
experimental error, 11 is a prime,...
Engineer: 3 is a prime, 5 is a prime, 7 is a prime, 9 is a prime, 11 is
a prime,...
Programmer: 3's a prime, 5's a prime, 7's a prime, 7's a prime, 7's a
prime,...
Computer Software Salesperson: 3 is prime, 5 is prime, 7 is prime, 9
will be prime in the next release,...
