Congratulations, you've finally exposed yourself. The original problem tou link to is based on real intervals derives its 50% result from the fact that any two real intervals, even one unbounded versus one bounded, have the same cardinality. It's source is first year maths where students are introduced to such concepts before getting into the finer points of real number analysis. Your new version (accidental?) with natural numbers doesn't work the same way. It is not insulting to expose your mistakes, the only damage is what you do to yourself by pretending with substantial futility and tell-tale superwaffle to understand more than you actually do.

    Any post as full as yours is of plausible-seeming but ridiculously off-base non-sequitors is evidence either of profound ignorance or deliberate trolling. It doesn't matter which is the case, both possibilities indicate that I should not waste further effort on you.

      Please don't put on this kind of meaningless show, when you don't really know much about math. Seriously.

      The truth is you can't begin to address the issues or see any relevance in any of it because you don't know enough math. Better to stop lying about it.
