It's on the opposite side from Canada's wang going into America, so I'd say it was a wang. http://imgur.com/gallery/p2mNQ
One of the reasons that is bandied about is that advertising regions do not match up with state borders so differing sales taxes would cause the advertising to be wrong. It does piss me off when nothing in a $1 store is actually $1 though. I'm glad Europe got its shit together to get rid of most of these extra unavoidable fees.
I was just objecting to the use of set of all primes, as you say there is no easy way to construct (or test) primes, however by showing that there must be a prime greater than an arbitrary value you have demonstrated there are an infinite number of primes* without requiring that you know all the primes in the first place.
*(N!+1)! +1 ad infinitum.
The proof in the article is that there exists an infinite subset of the primes where members are separated from at least one other member by less than 70 million. Which is a pretty hard thing to even get close to proving.
This whole proof is much easier if you use factorials as you can always prove there must be a prime bigger than N, as N! + 1 is not divisible by any number less than N. Which sort of gets around this weird way of attacking this problem y'all seem to be using which involves ephemeral 'set of known primes' which is weird in proofs.
They also counted in base 60 using the knuckles of the fingers of one hand (using the thumb as a marker) and the fingers of the other hand for 5x12 counting system. There are some people who stand by this or the duodecimal system.
Hmm, if you suffered from it you would probably think differently. Trust me.
Except floppy manufacturers, they exist in their own world where there are 1024 Bytes to the KiloByte and 1000 KB to the MB all so they could have a 1.44MB capacity, not 1.41MiB or 1.47MB as logic dictates, because fuck logic.
It's unlikely to cause any probes to crash into Mars so it probably doesn't matter that much.
Fixed cf. Removable. You're actually talking about a fixed focal length, which is a specific thing not mentioned in the name. I appreciate it's not entirely clear but those are the choices.
No we don't do that. Long distance is usually another country so you use the international prefix in whatever country you are in. In the UK it'd be a 00 (of the + on your phone) don't know what it is elsewhere.
That'd be an Ultrabook as the 'standard' of which you talk for a small light machine, which isn't really fair as the machine will be faster with an i3/i5 and DDR3. But it'll also cost 3 times as much so. The question then becomes will a $250 netbook in 2 generations beat the ultrabook (ie would you be better to buy a new $250 machine when one comes out for 3 generations than spent the same money in one lot now. That's an interesting question but not one many people would care to ask. I don't know but if you find out you can let the rest of us know.
Science is about testing theory against reality, the others need no test. If the theory is wrong it gets debunked with hopefully a better one.
