 Nov25 awarded Popular Question Nov18 awarded Autobiographer Apr3 comment Can a coin with an unknown bias be treated as fair? @JMCF125, Well, fair point. :P But the effect of quantum mechanics on the flip of a coin or SD card is minimal compared to the other factors I mentioned. I was referring to things of a higher level. Apr3 comment Can a coin with an unknown bias be treated as fair? Isn't probability directly related to our knowledge of a system anyway? Like, if you knew exactly how biased a coin was, exactly how it would be flipped, exactly where it would land, and all the forces that would act on it the entire way through the air, you would be able to predict with 100% accuracy what it would land as, even if it stops on its side. It becomes random because we don't know enough... right?

Oct3 comment How do you find the center of a circle with a pencil and a book? @RahulNarain, hold the book so it's spine is on the circle, not it's face. But it would work even if the red lines are on opposite sides of the circle. Oct3 comment How do you find the center of a circle with a pencil and a book?

This may be related... math.stackexchange.com/q/65760/16332 Jan12 comment Gödel's incompleteness theorem can't be proven? Read Gödel Escher Bach by Douglas Hofstadter. It takes a long time explaining it (though you don't realise that it's doing so for most of it), and is an awesome book anyway. Sep19 awarded Supporter Sep19 awarded Scholar Sep19 comment How do you say $10$ when it's in binary? That joke could be one of the reasons I thought about it the way I did in my question. To say the joke out loud, you basically have to call it "ten". But beyond that, it seems my view is the wrong (or at least, less popular) one. Sep19 accepted How do you say $10$ when it's in binary?
