Next prime after 39?
date/time math? eg. 10:00 AM + 3:00 = 1:00 PM, Today + 1 = tomorrow (or Today + 16 = March 31st or January 8 + 42 = February 19th, etc.)
Just make it assume, unless otherwise instructed, that it means this year.

https://duckduckgo.com/?q=Next+prime+after+39 already works :)

https://duckduckgo.com/?q=10:00+AM+++3hr works as well (WA gets confused with just 3:00 though, which I guess makes sense given the ambiguity).

Neither of the adding ones there work. Like several other !bangs they just make an empty spot above the results and don't fill it with 0-click info, or even the red box.

Edit: Sorry, they do, but "+++" doesn't work. That would be "+++"
Ahh, that's what the problem is. + automatically changes to +
trying to get it visible: %+ + ???
Well whaddaya know, I figured it out by Ducking it! % 2B automatically changes to +!
