Odd vs Even

My U.S. friends found it very funny when we spoke about the way how foreigners remember the words odd and even. My method is Borland Pascal. I know that 5 is odd (in fact, I always visualize the help page below), hence, 4 is even. So, odd is "x % 2 = 1", and even means "x % 2 = 0". You can derive everything else from these two facts...
