OK, but that has more ambiguous wording than Anastasia.

n is SOME IDENTIFIER INDEX out of nowhere...

Not true for all n.

Would read better as p_a and p_b
or p_a(n) and p_b(n)

by merely moving 'such that' a little

The result says there are an infinite number of consecutive
primes such that p(n) and p(n+1) have p(n+1) - p(n) < 70,000,000.

Worse than 'as many as you want'

If someone asks for a ACCURATE NEWSPAPER SUBJECT LINE

then don't feed them bullshit

then repeatedly misconstrue the objections to why it is incorrect.

You MATHNOS have been LYING THROUGH YOUR TEETH for 10 YEARS

You're all full of sh!t, and you'll stay that way I'm not helping any
more when your vomitful antics from the same gang of cowards never
stops.
