Re: What do you think?

hi bobbym

well when i think about it it does sound like a miracle.i think it can go into my miracle theory.you are now a coassistent for miracle theory along with bob.

but what you said is not a miracle if it is not well defined.for it to be a miracle it must have the basic properties of a miracle at each point which means that it almost never occurs.but random people come to random houses offering random services and randomly leave taking the money with them.although that was not the case with you,by the Great Miracle theorem your case is easily reducible to the one i mentioned above.

Re: What do you think?

I do not prescribe to what science thinks is a miracle or not. Their efforts to reduce everything to some physics formula leaves me cold.

Re: What do you think?

New problem:

This appears on another site.
Happily, if you include the zeros, birthdays are 8 digits long -- so you have a 63% chance of finding your birthday in the first 100 million digits of pi.

A says) What nonsense. These computer guys give me hives. I mean they make me sick how they are always getting everything wrong. Computers should be barred from mathematics!

C says) As a programmer I agree.

D says) Here! Here! I compute a 91% chance.

E says) Those three give me a headache glad you are down here.

B says) I am too. What is your sign? Come here often?

Are experts are involved in other matters so it is up to you. Do you like the above statement?

Re: What do you think?

In an earlier thread you asked how to tackle this problem. You asked for a hint, I gave you three or so. Did you follow that?

Re: What do you think?

After tomorrow, we will start a thread and discuss them maybe?

Re: What do you think?

Hi Bobby,

The theory of that 'DOB in pi' problem goes over my head, but I thought I'd still have some fun with the concept anyway.

Puzzle: From the first 100000 decimal digits of pi find the only DOB ( mmddyyyy format ) of someone who could still be alive today whose YOB iterates to 1.

Iteration searches to be within that same pi digit range.

Iteration example: The starting position of 1839 is 9323, whose starting position is 14, whose starting position is 1.

EDIT: This puzzle is now in its own thread, here.
