Big, if true:

"In a more recent study, Amir Siraj and Prof. Loeb identified another (and much smaller) potential interstellar object, which they claim could be regularly colliding with Earth."

Let \(X \sim \mathcal{N}(0, 1)\) and \(x > 0\).

\(

\mathbb{P}(X > x)

\)

\(

= \frac{1}{\sqrt{2\pi}} \int_x^\infty e^{-t^2/2} \,\mathrm{d}t

\)

\(

\leq \frac{1}{\sqrt{2\pi}} \int_x^\infty \frac{t}{x} e^{-t^2/2} \,\mathrm{d}t

\)

\(

= \frac{e^{-x^2/2}}{x \sqrt{2\pi}}.

\)

Quite elegant!

OMG GUYS THEY EMAILED ME AGAIN TO FOLLOW UP.

Hi.

I'm morally against ads. I think advertising is deceptive manipulation designed to create needs that don't need to exist. I think advertising is a big component of the capitalist society that is bringing this planet to ecological ruin.

Besides, they're just annoying. Nobody likes watching ads. At best we put up with them or manage to ignore them.

You don't have to worry about this if you're using LaTeX.

The following chart inspired a question:

There's evidence for a natural nuclear fission reactor 2 billion years ago based on the nuclear waste found in rocks that age. Do you accept such evidence? The waste did not move with respect to the surrounding rock. Does this have implications for nuclear waste disposal?

I'll have to add that to the lists of premises I don't agree with.

I don't see why the wine/water paradox should be a paradox. It seems clear that the logarithm of the wine/water ratio is in the range \(-\log(3)\) to \(\log(3)\) and the a priori distribution should be uniform on that interval.
