    The seven o' clock one is actually an irrational number, 6.9 repeating...

    Figured I'd answer your post even though the only people who care will probably already know...

    No, but some of us believe in HOLLOW earth theory.

    5 is right. You do the square root before the permutation.

    Did you break into T3's house because I'm pretty sure this is his clock.

    I seen this about a month ago. Shoot a laser across a lake and then attempt to measure it.

    These people are using lasers, telescopes, and helicopters--not to mention a television crew with a celebrity narrator--to make precision measurements in the 21st century. And yet they are all surprised to find out that the earth isn't flat. If this wasn't so stupid, it would have been funny.

    I thought it was pretty cool. He just explained a practical way of "seeing it."

    They were surprised! "I can't believe it (that the earth isn't flat)!" They were using lasers and are amazed the earth is curved.

    Lord Parpaluck does not use the sophisticated tools of modern probability theory like the person in the video below. Is that person right or not? If not, can you explain the error(s)?

    I didn't see any obvious errors .... except for ignoring 3:2 blackjacks, double downs, splits, etc. Quite an omission IMO.

    I don't know if the guy in the video is right or not. Is he? It was all Greek to me, seeing symbols I don't understand. Some of it looks like hieroglyphics. He's talking that Mathemagician lexicon.

    Actually, the "teacher" in that video was trying to compute the average "expectation" for the value of a (non-busting) dealer hand total... a much simpler task than looking at expectations related to a player's hand. You were on the right track, Mr. Doe. With the above hint in mind, the error might be easier to spot in a second viewing.
