sure, but you don't know when you have the _right_ answer, you only
know that for a given coin-flip series, you have a 1/n chance of that
particular one being right.
oh yes, and your alpha is usually faster than most any computing
device on the planet. that's like saying "all my kids are bald" or
"all good micro$oft software is well-written".

especially when that signal is recorded in the spin state of some M
atoms of a cup of hot tea.

got it. thanks man. that's "on the record".

adam needs to work out to bitch-slap those snapper-heads? i think he
should just run through the office naked screaming "the redmonds are
coming! the redmonds are coming!". that'd be enough to make me jump
out the window.
