People knew how to decrypt RSA before it was released.  Just saying.

Besides that there is *nothing* to prove the solving factors of primes is
an inherently difficult task. Separately these days any company with a few
10's of thousands $$$ available can purchase the hardware to do the job
with brute force but there are other more subtle methods. Like the NSA
paying companies to use broken algorithms by default, etc...

But I digress.

I guess you don't have the information that I have ;-) Lets go, bring out
the naysaying, heretical,  finger pointing. Just let me get a shot in now
before it descends into truly dangerous territory.

Yo Mama is so fat they can't launch her into orbit , land her on the moon
and then return her to Earth.

The heat generated when the *snap* occurs is as hot as the surface of the
sun. Watch the video...
