### Re: N digit sequence within π

Also, this smells a lot like "if there's an infinite number of universes surely there's one where anything can happen", which is not how probability works. Take, for instance, the following number: 0.101001000100001... (basically a single 1 and then more and more 0s). This number has infi...

A quick description of the opening premise is that two homicide detectives in Louisiana begin investigating a strange, ritualistic murder. Naturally, it goes deeper than a...

Nah, you can always bring it back unless you have to fight over objectives with a significant level disadvantage.

Especially at the moments when one team gets their ults first, level 10 and 20 are turning points if you're forced to fight for objectives.

@Minestrone in a 2 - 2 the mafia doesn't necessarily control the vote, and with some scum hunting and maybe a good investigation, the vigilante has a better shot of killing off a mafia.

but a 2 - 1 is a deathwish and I'd rather not risk that.

I agree with Minestrone in keeping the gems split.

Although it might be LYLO, the mafia will certainly kill the person holding both gems and without any information on who's mafia means that the kill will go through.
