comment Arithmetic progressions without small primes
(This might show up twice by accident, sorry.) Let e > 0. Mindlessly applying the heuristic, the chance f(p) that "there is no prime less than p^{1+e} in the progression" decreases very fast with p; in fact, the sum of f(p) over all p converges, suggesting this event happens only finitely often. For an example of the limitations of such reasoning, see "Primes in short intervals" by H. Maier.
