Q: A Maths Question

 

Scandinavian is being chased by his Mother-in-Law. Scandinavian travels at 5 metres per second, and has a 500 metre head start. Scandinavian’s Mother-in-Law travels at 20 metres per second.

 

Scandinavian’s Mother-in-Law has two horns, one red and one purple. Every 10 seconds she either grows an additional horn (40% chance) or one of her horns disappears (60% chance). Each new horn is either black, white, red, purple or pink (each is equally probable). If Scandinavian’s Mother-in-Law ever has two horns of the same colour, she explodes.

 

What is the probability that Scandinavian will escape?

Ahti oli saarella asuva

Kaukoniemen kainalossa
Oli pellon kynnännässä,
vainon vakoannassa.
Korvalta ylen korea,
kovin tarkka kuulennalta.
Kuulevi jumun kylältä
järyn järvien takoa,
jalan iskun iljeneltä,
reen kapinan kankahalta.
Juohtui juoni mielehensä,
tuuma aivohon osasi:
häitä Pohjola pitävi,
salajoukko juominkia!

I'm still trying to figure out the 'Chicken/Egg' conundrum.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
