>>719697690
Hey, no one has ever been able to answer this question, so I'm hoping you might take a shot at it. I read about a paper a few years ago on anti-entropic matter in which the entropic arrow of time is reversed. It was believed at the time that while anti-entropic matter could have existed in the early Universe, it would long since have vanished due to interactions with entropic matter. However, according to this paper, computer modelling had shown anti-entropic matter was much more resilient than previously believed, opening the possibility that some might still exist.

My question is this: what would an anti-entropic star look like? If you got enough anti-entropic matter in one place to cause it to fuse, what would happen? I find it difficult to conceptualize.

August 17th, at first with numbers he can't know if its the top half, but albert does since it can't be those knowing that now bernard can see that only august 17th shared with june 17th and it was eliminated so it's all that's left.

>implying we need floating point precision unless we're working with atoms or microprocessors
>>
>>719700608
No... its not.

We know it isn't the the 18th or 19th. And we know that because albert does not know. Bernard knows that it is not those numbers because he knows it is not the first two months after revealing that it is not either of those two months.

First two months gone.

Albert knows which it is now. Removing the two 14ths
Because he knows which month it is.
Then albert knows so we know that the month he chooses can only have one number. The only month with one number remaining is june.

June 16th. You guys are dumb as hell.

Could your knowledge of math be weaponized?
>>
>>719701893
I agree. June and May are right out since Bernard can know May 19 or June 18 by just knowing the number, and Albert knows that Bernard doesn't know. That leaves just July and August. Since Bernard and Albert now know her birthday given these narrowed choices, the answer must be July 16 since it is the only choice with a unique day and unique month left.

Only if i divide by zero.
