comment Calculus remark I forgot.
You're going to need to put some more restrictions on $X$. For instance, this clearly doesn't hold for the empty set. Or the set of all integers. Or the set of negative real numbers. Or $[0,1] \backslash \{x:x=1/n,n\in\mathbb{N}\}$. Etc. But there's something there if you refine it a little bit.

accepted If $X\sim \exp(\lambda)$ and $Y\sim \exp(\mu)$ then $P(X\leq Y)=\frac{\lambda}{\lambda+\mu}$. Is there an intuitive interpretation for this fact?

@Did that's a fantastic way to put it. If you made this an answer I would accept it.

comment Is it a vector space?
@realmatrix note, "it is the equation of a line" is not sufficient to show that it is a vector space. $y=x+1$ is the equation of a line, but the points satisfying that equation do not form a vector space.

comment How is this step in the proof that $E[X]=\sum_{x=1}^\infty P(X\geq x)$ justified?
thank you, the analogy with integration really drilled it home.
