>>> Er, pardon me for asking, but what's so special about prime numbers?

All numbers are equally special.

Proof: suppose that some numbers are more special than others. Then 
there must be a set of numbers that are the least special of all; and 
one of these must be the lowest such number. This number would be rather

special. Contradiction.
