The OP says:

So he's dead? I don't think "within the next two turns" should exclude the same turn.

Re: How much money?

The best bet would be to bet about 3 dollars. Thus, you have a 50% chance of winning if the better is not bias and choose to try and decrease your odds more. The result would be you winning at least something over nothing. I guess this is just a matter of preference, but I'd rather have a 1/1000 ch...

I think that question you're asking is really "why does light move about eight orders of magnitude faster than many of the things we see around us." In that case, the answer is that we move at the speed we do because of evolution based on the amount of energy available in a given area in t...

Re: Why does light move at the speed it does?

Here's a better way to think about it: light goes at the speed of 1. The value 3*10 8 m/s is only generated by our units. It makes a lot more sense to define c as 1 and then go from there. Thus, I win the bet with WarDraft: c's value is 1 in all possible realities, and it has nothing to do with how ...
