Domestos Kills 99.999...Percent of all Germs!As the title of this Post says! Kills 99.999... Percent of all Germs! and not 100 Percent! as we know would be Impossible........... #2 20070824 06:15:49
Re: Domestos Kills 99.999...Percent of all Germs!holy smokes! this germ is only 0.999... percent dead! quick quick! Deploy every whiteblood cell in the immune system before it infects us all! A logarithm is just a misspelled algorithm. #3 20070824 06:18:26
Re: Domestos Kills 99.999...Percent of all Germs!That's funny, ARB, their own website says nothing of the sort. In fact, the only thing it says is that you can't kill them all. It says nothing about percentage of germs killed. "In the real world, this would be a problem. But in mathematics, we can just define a place where this problem doesn't exist. So we'll go ahead and do that now..." #4 20070824 06:49:52

Re: Domestos Kills 99.999...Percent of all Germs!so all numbers that are not equal to 1 are 0.999...? Last edited by mikau (20070824 06:55:53) A logarithm is just a misspelled algorithm. #6 20070824 07:56:06

Re: Domestos Kills 99.999...Percent of all Germs!mmhmmmm. So? A logarithm is just a misspelled algorithm. #8 20070824 08:36:16
Re: Domestos Kills 99.999...Percent of all Germs!It's a mathematical breakthrough! Numbers less than 100 are less than 100. Genius! ;) #9 20070824 08:56:25
Re: Domestos Kills 99.999...Percent of all Germs!what?! i refuse to believe that! (throws Maelwys off the boat) A logarithm is just a misspelled algorithm. #10 20070824 10:01:12
Re: Domestos Kills 99.999...Percent of all Germs!Don't you think you'd be going a bit overboard if you did that, Mikau? "In the real world, this would be a problem. But in mathematics, we can just define a place where this problem doesn't exist. So we'll go ahead and do that now..." #11 20070824 10:19:48
Re: Domestos Kills 99.999...Percent of all Germs!No, I think that apparently I'm the one that'd be going a bit overboard... ;) #12 20070824 11:11:11
Re: Domestos Kills 99.999...Percent of all Germs!hahahaha! A logarithm is just a misspelled algorithm. #13 20070824 20:48:30
Re: Domestos Kills 99.999...Percent of all Germs!Just to make things clearer about this Post! #14 20070824 21:49:57
Re: Domestos Kills 99.999...Percent of all Germs!I am getting overbored reading this thread. #15 20070824 22:29:16
Re: Domestos Kills 99.999...Percent of all Germs!I don't think ARB realizes that 99.999 is simply the number 99 + 999/1000. Perhaps he is in a little bit over his head. "In the real world, this would be a problem. But in mathematics, we can just define a place where this problem doesn't exist. So we'll go ahead and do that now..." #16 20070826 00:28:07

Re: Domestos Kills 99.999...Percent of all Germs!I think the confusion is that nobody really knows what the point of this post is. #18 20070827 21:04:56
Re: Domestos Kills 99.999...Percent of all Germs!Quote:" All you're stating is that something doesn't kill all germs, just most. Okay... so what's the problem? That's probably just a legal thing, since if there turns out that something slips through, they can just claim that it was in the 0.001% that they don't kill and avoid getting sued.

Re: Domestos Kills 99.999...Percent of all Germs!All I know is ... I am glad I am not a germ, a .001% chance of survival is not very comforting. "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #21 20070829 20:42:15

Re: Domestos Kills 99.999...Percent of all Germs!where is your arithemetic logic unit, ARB? did it fall out? A logarithm is just a misspelled algorithm. #23 20070830 18:06:38
Re: Domestos Kills 99.999...Percent of all Germs!
So is 99.999% ? #24 20070830 20:19:19
