    A Handy Riddle

    A cup overhead, bells at my feet A hand for my job, I’m active and fleet. Whistles and bells, above and below Ladder to ladder, I go with the flow.
  9. A physicist, a biologist, and a mathematician are sitting on a bench across from a house. They watch as two people go into the house, and then a little later, three people walk out. The physicist says, "The initial measurement was incorrect." The biologist says, "They must have reproduced." And the mathematician says, "If exactly one person enters that house, it will be empty."
  10. Heisenberg, Gödel and Chomsky walk into a bar. Heisenberg notes, “We seem to have stumbled into a joke. But I can't tell whether it's funny.” Gödel points out, “Since we are currently inside the joke, it is impossible to tell.” Chomsky says, “Quite clearly it's funny. You are just telling it wrong!”

    Unless the sender said something, it might just be random letters to make the ornament shape.
  12. I wanted to add to this dicussion that I almost solved the discussion on life: first: - there is infinite space (there must be somtehing next to our supossed solar systems, as it would be a strange situation if there would be nothing) - there is infite smallness (as it would be strange if smallness stops suddenly) Therefore the hugeness and smallness are both infinite and might just be a sort of continuum. This means that smallness is hugeness in some way (we just cannot imagine yet). The consequence is that life is just there in this continuum and you better make the most of it.

    Hello Everyone, Everyone loves What Am I Riddles. I certainly do. I thought I would have some fun, and post a few. Here are some I have found. Which I believe you have not heard before. Riddle 1: My Colours are pretty, rarely seen. Closer you get, more unseen. What Am I? Riddle 2: I have the squawk factor, name similar to a Hollywood actor, Seas and beaches are my thing, stealing food, then live like kings! What Am I? Riddle 3: I bring objects closer together, but can also push them apart. Can also be confused for attraction of the hearts. What Am I?

    Well, I've shown a lot of ways where Arcsin could win, but I don't actually prove that Arctan can win in cases that aren't covered in the above ramblings. An ideal solution would be along the lines of: "If the composition of the Praesidium meets these criteria then Arcsin has a strategy that's guaranteed to win, and if it doesn't fit those criteria then Arctan has a strategy that's guaranteed to win."

    So then if we know N and P we should be able to bound squares x by a two values. Are those values always consecutive?

    While this doesn’t answer the question with randomly placed 1s, I think it does give an upper bound to the number of columns that can be removed.
