Not a single word of English? I'm sure they would've got 'a' down within six months.

That would require a space either side, so it's possible that it never happened.

About the infinite monkey theorem; it states an infinite amount of time on a typewriter, not a limit of six months on a computer.

Can somebody explain the camera one for me, I've never read 1984 and have no idea if that book even has anything to do with those 43 cameras.
User avatar #26 to #22 - gadgetzan ONLINE (01/06/2014) [-]
Haven't read it either, but in the book he suggests that in the future year 1984 (it was written in the beginning of the century), the governments "big brother" type surveillance would have come as far as to have everything transpiring recorded, monitored and stored or something alike. It's from what I understand a pretty accurate prediction of what is actually happening.

According to Wikipedia, the maximum length of poronkusema is 7,5km (~4,7 miles).

About the sperm one - It's just... messed up.

If you're gonna say 1 sperm has enough information for you to reproduce, then it is actually less than 37.5Mb, since only about 1% of your genome is unique to you. The figure 37.5Mb is wrong anyway - 37.5Mb is 300 million bits. The genome contains 3 billion base pairs. Off by a factor of 10.

And then to say an ejaculation is 15.9Tb is also a stretch because the sperm are nearly identical... yes you could say it is that much "info" in all, but it's all copies of the same thing... but it's still wrong anyway because that would mean there are 423,000 sperm per shot.. it's actually on the order of 100 million, give or take.

... who comes up with these? It's baloney.
