I have broken more Elton John records, he seems to have a lot of records. And I, by the way, I don’t have a musical instrument. I don’t have a guitar or an organ. No organ. Elton has an organ. And lots of other people helping. No we’ve broken a lot of records. We’ve broken virtually every record. Because you know, look, I only need this space. They need much more room. For basketball, for hockey and all of the sports, they need a lot of room. We don’t need it. We have people in that space. So we break all of these records. Really we do it without like, the musical instruments. This is the only musical: the mouth. And hopefully the brain attached to the mouth. Right? The brain, more important than the mouth, is the brain. The brain is much more important.
Also, quantum computing will never work because you can't turn it off and on again as it's not on or off.
That's not how I learned SF...Dinosawer wrote: ↑Sun Sep 02, 2018 11:58 pmThe rest of what Silver said, however, is wrong
5,890,000,000 has 10 SF, not 3. If someone writes 5,890,000,000 g, then that means their precision was a gram, and all of those zeros are significant. If they actually measured in tons (so 5890 tons, with 4 SF), but they wanted to write it in gram, they would write 5890E6 g. See, still 4 SF. Same for 5890, that's 4 SF, always.
5,890,000,000 is 3 - 10 SF, to be on the safe side one would assume 3.In a number without a decimal point, trailing zeros may or may not be significant. More information through additional graphical symbols or explicit information on errors is needed to clarify the significance of trailing zeros.
