 2d awarded Notable Question May 16 awarded Popular Question Dec 22 awarded Caucus Aug 1 comment Two dice thrown, one comes up 6 +1: I read this and I went through several stages of grief: Denial ("Surely not! It's just 1/6!"), Anger ("But... But...! That's clearly not what was being asked!"), and finally Acceptance as I realised you are 100% correct. Jul 10 awarded Good Question Jun 30 awarded Citizen Patrol Mar 7 comment What was the first bit of mathematics that made you realize that math is beautiful? (For children's book) @utnapistim technically the shortest distance between two points on an orange is still a straight line... through the orange. Incidentally, the 180° triangle thing was first point at which I realised mathematics was beautiful. Oct 28 awarded Yearling Oct 9 comment Why is -10 smaller than -100?

May 24 awarded Autobiographer Nov 17 comment If the Goldbach Conjecture is True, does it make it easier to find large primes? So in short "No" :) Thanks @rossmillikan Nov 17 accepted If the Goldbach Conjecture is True, does it make it easier to find large primes? Nov 16 comment Is every positive nonprime number at equal distance between two prime numbers? OK, thanks for clarifying for me :) Nov 16 awarded Editor Nov 16 revised If the Goldbach Conjecture is True, does it make it easier to find large primes? Added a link to explain link between prime numbers and cryptography Nov 16 asked If the Goldbach Conjecture is True, does it make it easier to find large primes? Nov 16 comment Is every positive nonprime number at equal distance between two prime numbers? Surely 1 is a prime number? It's only divisible by 1 and itself (1) Nov 2 comment New to probability - Is this true? @Mitch doesn't a coin suffer from imbalance, too? I know that UK ten pence coins land on heads more often than tails (at least, I always opt for heads and rarely lose - so I have no proof other than personal experience...)
