An EE who writes software and accidentally became an expert in controlling 3-phase permanent magnet motors - where a breakthrough was inspired by my background in ray tracing.

I really like the informal answer in the first paragraph. The answer does not require a lot of fancy math notation.

@PeterT.off and ratchetfreak: The problem explicitly lumped 1 into a group as if there was doubt about where it should be. If 1 is simply excluded and you look at numbers greater than 1 the conjecture seems to hold as well. I'm just saying that since the problem felt a need to explicitly handle 1, and the result actually hinges on that decision, perhaps we should stop and think about that. That's all. I'm just trying to act like a layman (and on this site, that is probably who I am).

That (Banach-Tarski) is not an example you should use to make people believe in mathematics ;-)

It doesn't hold because E() cheated by getting 1 arbitrarily thrown into the set. In fact, if 1 is considered odd, the inequality can be made stronger by eliminating the words "or equal" from the conjecture ;-)
