DailyDirt: Pi Math

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

National Pie Day is not actually March 14th (although it really should be, if only to make it more memorable). But here's to the number, not the delicious dessert. If you'd like to read more awesome and interesting stuff, check out this unrelated (but not entirely random!) Techdirt post.

    Re: Re:

    As a previous commenter pointed out, an infinite sequence of non-repeating numbers could completely omit the number 9 and then would not contain ANY finite sequence that had a 9 in it.

    SO SAD.. why did you forget to mention NON-REPEATING RANDOMLY DISTRIBUTED NUMBERS.

    you cannot omit a number (like 9) and them claim it's a random distribution.

    and if your argument is if you make it non-random and leave out a number, but INCLUDE that number in your search string you will not get a match. that's the most stupid things I have heard you say to date.

    and if you base your argument that you are right and I am wrong based on such a outright stupid statement you must KNOW YOU have lost..

    also the odds of the sequence being 88888888 or 12345678 coming out of a large distributed list of random numbers IS EXACTLY THE SAME.. and are the same for any 8 digit combination coming out.

    no, I don't expect you to comprehend that either, so ill just accept your ignorance and move on..
