Re: weight lifting miracle today

I'll do 5 with 1009 again and get better results on the loop length...

Re: weight lifting miracle today

mult by 5 to next number and using 1009 prime for mod reveals that it looped twice in 1008, at a length of 504.

Re: weight lifting miracle today

Hi;

Here are some primes you can work with:


In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

I agree with you regarding the satisfaction and importance of actually computing some numbers. I can't tell you how often I see time and money wasted because someone didn't bother to run the numbers.

Re: weight lifting miracle today

I think I'll eat something else now too.
My book lists all the primes and the residue result loops from 3 to 1999.
the book is hardcover, about and inch thick, 1.25" with covers.

You should be able to improve on that with a program.

Re: weight lifting miracle today

oh no doubt!!  Maybe after I get to more important tasks such as getting all the elements weights into my head and back out as needed without error.  Also, I must say, googles new terms of service are wonderfully written in plain simple English.  I am so impressed I wrote to them.

What are there new terms of service?

Re: weight lifting miracle today

I don't remember it word for word, it is about 900 words plus or minus a multiple of 22.
I won't try to summarize it since that would be silly since they already wrote it in plain english.

Re: weight lifting miracle today

The whole world is interconnected, so I guess maybe it might have something to do with PIPA and SOPA being written so poorly, just a guess.

Yes, the world is really connected now. Anybody can talk to anyone else, no matter what country they are in.

Well I wouldn't go that far.  Some people live without computers still and sell newspapers and wash windshields in a downtown, and have missing teeth too.

That is true. Still a lot of very poor people.

There are probably some happy animals in the forest (les bois/ le for^et) that eat better than some of the most unfortunate of people on this planet.

Re: weight lifting miracle today

I know, I see a lot homeless people here too. It is a disgrace, especially now it
is very cold outside.

Re: weight lifting miracle today

Are there more homeless women between 22 and 44 years of age in the USA or more homeless men of the same age range?
Any idea?  I don't know the answer.

Re: weight lifting miracle today

I see mostly men. I do not think that a woman could survive very long in that environment.

I see mostly men as well, however I have seen a couple women that certainly look homeless, not sure if they are though.

Re: weight lifting miracle today

I have seen a few women too. I do not know what the national statistic is. I am sure
whatever they say it is, is probably a gross understimation.

Re: weight lifting miracle today

Hi John;

I am sure it is some kind of overestimation, a small one or maybe a gross one. Sorry to be
but what I am saying is that they would rather sweep the problem under the rug.

Re: weight lifting miracle today

Well if I ever become rich or win the lottery, I promise I will
build a home in a town I love, and allow homeless to stay
there 23 hours and 59 minutes a day.  They have to leave
for one minute at least every day to get some fresh air.
Gotta have some rules, right?

Re: weight lifting miracle today

That is the first time I ever heard anybody think of the less fortunate after imagining winning the lottery.

Re: weight lifting miracle today

I'm not really attached to possessions, though I wouldn't mind having a second clarinet in case the first one breaks down in a concert that I play every other year!  but i would like have enough money to live in a cheap apartment in the north-east and
move whenever I feel like it in search of my true love...  The leftover lottery money can go to the homes for the homeless.
