There, I think I can now safely claim the most elaborate solution to this problem.
If I may interject, I suggest we purchase the following gadget (maybe it's listed on ebay, eh?):
...and calculate the product convergence all the way to k=6.1871539834134776012651492465284 x 10^34 (the reciprocal value of Planck's length). Maybe we can halt the Folding@Home or the Seti@Home projects for a temporary period while we use the available
CPU time for the calculation of the said problem. After all, this IS channel9, not channel 8.9999999999873293. I, for one, will not stand for this mathematical discrepancy. If anybody has watched the movie
, there is a magic number out there that can make all computers become self-aware, predict the functioning of the stock market and reveal god to the Jewish people (maybe it can even aid in the making of lumpless
pudding*). If we all work together, maybe we can find this neatly secluded needle in the haystack... or maybe not... after all, I've got some lumpy pudding to tend to (it has just cooled down enough to please my picky taste buds)... Happy april fools day everybody
*Lumpless pudding is not actually sans lumps if there is at least one lump that surpasses Planck's length (all dimensions below Planck's length make "no physical sense", as it seems). Man... that must be some smooth pudding right there.
