You don’t have to know anything about statistics to suspect this rubbish was deliberately included in the filing to insult the reader’s intelligence – although that wouldn’t make much sense either. But then it gets even better:
But the subsequent page is even worse! Raising such a (short) quadrillion to the power of 4, i.e 10 to the power of 60. Two more states and this reasoning would bring us probability odds well beyond the number of atoms in the observable universe. LOL— Lars Kr. Lundin (@lklundin) December 8, 2020
Given that seventeen other states have filed briefs in support of this outrageous nonsense, who knows how far it will travel? The US Supreme Court would push the country towards destruction if it decided to hear this case on its merits.
Why stop at a quadrillion. Why not a quintillion to 1 or a sextillion to 1?— dave (@aceofthedesert) December 8, 2020
Because quadrillion sounds positively Dostoevskian.
