This video is quite clever and the effects are (mostly) good.

Now, let's ponder how they arrived at their probability value... This is, after all, a chaotic situation where calculating probabilities would be almost impossible.

Then again, in the real world, that is quite normal.

On with the show.

    I believe the method they used was to take the number 1, then place a decimal point and a whole bunch of zeroes in front of it.

HTML: You can use simple tags like <b>, <a href="...">, etc.

To enter math, you can can either:

  1. Use simple calculator-like input in the following format (surround your math in backticks, or qq on tablet or phone):
    `a^2 = sqrt(b^2 + c^2)`
    (See more on ASCIIMath syntax); or
  2. Use simple LaTeX in the following format. Surround your math with \( and \).
    \( \int g dx = \sqrt{\frac{a}{b}} \)
    (This is standard simple LaTeX.)

NOTE: You can mix both types of math entry in your comment.
