Where as this one is a mathematical proof, not only focused on humanity. Both amazing in their own ways.bladerunner060 | bsh1 , 2014!

In general, there are just as many numbers that start with one than start with nine, but because of the way exponential functions work, the number one is the most common starting digit.We are not dead.
