Prime numbers and age correlation

So, I can't find any other people claiming this, so I thought I would throw it out there (for fun and for discussion).

It seems that prime numbers very much correlate with ages of prime. Prime ages, for different things of course.

Some examples:

2 is a prime age (anybody that has met most 2-year olds knows why this is true)
3 is still prime age to be a little kid
5 is a prime age to start school
7 is a prime age, 7 is a great time to be in second grade, 7 is also a lucky number and good second grade teachers are most common.
11 is prime time to get good at math and memorize multiplication tables.
13 is a prime age to become a teenager.
[Notice nothing prime between 13 and 17]
17 is prime age to be in high school, hanging out.
19 is a prime age to play sports (athletic prime), be in college, and all that goes with that.
23 is a prime age to go to grad school or finish college and get a job.
[Notice again nothing prime between 23 and 29]
29 is a prime age to be married.

I'll stop here for now. I am not yet 29 even, but my wife is.

Notice that interestingly enough 16, 18 and 21 are not prime, I bet a lot of people would consider these key/prime ages...

Ok, so as far as I know (I couldn't find anything with a or search), you heard it here first - prime numbers seem to very much correlate with prime ages. Your mileage may vary of course and as always, feel free to comment, disagree, or give your personal experiences.

Nice post. I know it is based off of our talk the other day, haha. But, yes, they do call it the "terrible twos". I've experienced such 2-year-olds!
