Pi also doesn't include any infinitely repeating rational-number decimal expansions, or else it would be rational itself.

As it happens, mathematicians seem to think the decimal expansion of pi includes all finite sequences of digits, but there's no reason simply to assume this to be the case.

I was reading it as saying that since it includes every possible number combination then simply representing it in base 2 (for example) gives both the digits necessary to represent all possible combinations of numbers since you have infinitely many 1s and 0s to choose from.

I'm not sure I understand what you're saying. If it's that the binary expansion of pi contains- non-contiguously- all the 1s and 0s necessary to construct every other number, then yes, it's a true, albeit silly, observation. If it's that the binary expansion of pi contains all possible contiguous finite sequences of binary digits, then there's no more reason to believe this is necessarily true than it is for base 10.
More clever than dumb.

The man who created the Thesaurus has died. He’ll be fondly remembered, commemorated, memorialized, recalled and recollected.

Dolls have given us an unrealistic image of women. For example, Russian women do not contain smaller Russian women inside them.

Excuse a foreigner, but I've been under the impression that Florida is one of your 50 states. In this case mr Guetta is indeed an impressive man.

The former, since it says 'every possible number combination', not 'every possible contiguous sequence written in conventional form'.

I don't see how it could be read differently considering what a combination is. And yes, as I said, it's silly and stems from something rather trivial.

That's not a fair critique. 95+% of all popular music is shit, irregardless of country of origin.

Of course you are correct, I simply meant that our popular music has been getting increasingly worse the last couple of years (e.g. Swedish house mafia).

Does this count as swedish or american...the title makes it unclear

...So, Vernon took matters into his own hands. On his brother’s advice, Vernon decided to raise his body’s pH to combat the cancer spreading in his body. To do this, he sought to obtain cesium chloride.

Cesium therapy is a well-known treatment protocol in cancer therapy. And it is an option doctors rarely give their cancer patients.

Treating cancer with cesium has been shown to have a 50% cure rate. Compared to chemotherapy and radiotherapy, cesium therapy produces better results. This cure rate is even more impressive considering the fact that most cancer patients receiving cesium have already undergone and failed to respond to chemotherapy, radiation therapy and/or surgery.

Instead of trying his luck with these orthodox cancer protocols, Vernon simply ordered cesium chloride.

Unfortunately, the cesium never arrived. However, Vernon did not give up on raising his pH levels and making his body too alkaline for cancer cells to spread. While searching for alternatives, he happened on a cheap and commonly available alkalizing source: baking soda.

This common household cooking item is commonly added to bubbly drinks and also used as an antacid to neutralize stomach acid in the treatment of ulcer and acid reflux.

The remedy Vernon found called for mixing baking soda with maple syrup. With no maple syrup on hand, he mixed the baking soda with molasses.

Vernon Johnston fought his cancer with ingredients taken from his kitchen. His efforts and success are documented on his blog aptly described as "dance with cancer".....
That actually makes me feel sick. Apparent from being wrong it stands a chance of making desperate people stop genuine treatments and try out something that stands no chance of working.
