A little something

A little something about confirmation bias and not liking to be wrong.


That was an interesting puzzle and a cool article. It only took me 22 guesses to figure the pattern out- 10 of which were “no”. I won’t spoil the answer for people, but make sure you guess a lot of different cases!


I knew this puzzle from a video, so I found in 3 easy steps, with 1 predicted no. Still, pretty interesting :slight_smile:


Yeah, the veritasium video - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vKA4w2O61Xo. Technically, you can’t prove it by asking no questions, unless it is “is it this rule?”. I was sad you couldn’t test real numbers vs repeating vs irrational vs complex. https://xkcd.com/356/.
