    And after laying low, I've decided it's time for me to see if I can't reciprocate and add my hyperbole to this tangent.

    Well, the universe is basically infinite in size. Therefore it follows that there must be an infinite number of planets. But we all know that not every world is inhabited therefore there's a finite number of habitable worlds. Any finite number divided by infinity is effectively zero. So the population of the universe then is zero..

    We don't exist...
    Actually, you'd have to independently prove that the number of inhabited planets was finite, since any fraction of infinity is still infinity. So even if (1.0x10^-99999)% of all planets are inhabited, (1.0x10^-99999)% of infinity is infinity. (Cantor did find that there are different ways of defining infinity, but even Aleph-zero is still infinite.)

    This sounds like a Gardener type of theory, but I haven't read Gardener in many years.

    By the way, that wasn't a direct quote. But if you have read the book you'll know it immediately!

    I don't know (yet) who wrote that. But I DO know that the reason the answer is effectively zero is that he/she wasn't doing floating point math.

    Refer to my previous post about Computational Techniques for Infinity!!

    I think it's really great too. The VUDU forum is the only place I know where not only can you get help to plug your dongle in properly, but you can also walk away with a college degree as well!!!

    I could be wrong but I think it's forever gone.

    Anyway, since you seem to be interested in compression theorems and limits, I suggest you read this:

    Thanks everyone.

    John, I don't think I ever mentioned if the inner-tube would have air in it, did I??

    Like Shultz, if I knew, I wouldn't even tell myself. So now I don't really know if I know or not?? So in reality we might not know what we really do know!!

    Sanity is such a frail thing. I've tried several times to throw Brain a lifeline, but he just won't take it. I'm sorry to say, I think the poor little mouse might be too far gone.

    Thanks for the link Greg!! I'll take a gander.

    Here's the bonus point answer just for you from my off-topic posts: http://www.krysstal.com/sphertrig.html

    I found a fairly laymans explanation.

    Thanks for that!!!

    That also answers the TV content question I had asked awhile ago.

    I'm not sure what 29.97 is (yet), but I'm definitely feeling better that I made the right choice for the new $3000 LCD I just bought. I won't get it until sometime next week, but now I'm excited to see what sort of video quality improvement I'll get with 1080/24p, compared to my existing display.

    Either way it's better than DVD which is only 480i.
