I may have found a new one,
Gold Bachs Conjecture:
Goldbach's conjecture is one of the oldest unsolved problems in number theory and in all of mathematics. It states:

Every even integer greater than 2 can be expressed as the sum of two primes.[1]

The number of ways an even number can be represented as the sum of two primes[2]

Such a number is called a Goldbach number. Expressing a given even number as a sum of two primes is called a Goldbach partition of the number. For example,

4 = 2 + 2
6 = 3 + 3
8 = 3 + 5
10 = 7 + 3 or 5 + 5
12 = 5 + 7
14 = 3 + 11 or 7 + 7
Come on good people let's use our collective brain and solve it.
It may help me get some zzz...

Do you have a chalk/white board or a wireless computer keyboard you can use to record your work on the computer till you get sleepy? If so get to work on the solution. The numbers begin to get pretty large rapidly! Have fun! :)
