Events with Probability Zero
I just donated this shirt to the Salvation Army. I estimate the probability that I will ever see this shirt again to be zero. In fact, forget estimating: I think the probability that I will see this shirt again is exactly zero.
In fact, I’ll go even further than that: I claim that the probability that anyone who reads this ever sees this shirt is exactly zero. Not .0000000000001. Zero.
Even if there are infinitely many possible scenarios in which this shirt is seen by someone, this number is dwarfed by the infinitude of possible scenarios in total. Thus
moderate infinity ÷ really big infinity = zero
I dropped it off at the Salvation Army in Brooklyn. Let me know if you see it: evidence will be required to claim your prize.
