Aug30 comment Proper way to express 0 in this case? Yes the whole thing is zero. It's a "math joke" to see that the multiplication will be zero from (x-a)*(x-b)*(x-c)...(x-x).. if you only view (x-a)(x-b)(a-c)... then it's what some engineer tricked me with ("Can you know what the answer is: ( (x-a)(x-b)(x-c)...

Jul9 awarded Famous Question Jul2 awarded Curious Jun22 comment Could the birthday paradox be interpreted also about deaths? The actual situation was that I mentioned the birthday paradox, and a guy said that he went to a funeral and noticed a graveyard where 3/10 deaths where the same date and I think it's perhaps not an instance of the birthday/death probability but rather an instance of locality in time and space, or some other explanation. So I could look at statistics from tombstones for real data about what we spoke about, if we can take the probability from the birthday paradox and expect it to say something about tombstone and graveyard dates in the real world. Jun22 revised Could the birthday paradox be interpreted also about deaths? edited tags Jun22 comment Could the birthday paradox be interpreted also about deaths? Thank you for the info. I studied Markov chains that perhaps could model births and deaths processes, but I couldn't take for granted that they are distributed same way. For example: If an asteroid destroys earth on a particular day and everybody dies the same day, then I suppose that it would make a difference.
