[Request] Find my next doomsday

0 Upvotes

This year has been a sequence of bad health episodes for my immediately family. I'm convinced there is a diminishing sequence. Here are the episodes:

14th April ~104 days into calendar year.

24 June ~175 days 71 days later

25 July 206 days 31 days later

13 August 225 days 19 days later

Is there a pattern?

[REQUEST] What is the longest provable chain of 'Killers-killing-Killers'?

2 Upvotes

An example, according to Wikipedia, would be any one of Jesse James's victims > Jesse James > Robert Ford > Edward O'Kelley > Officer Burnett of the Oklahoma City Police Department who then died of natural causes, ending that chain at 5 (though one of Jesse's victims may have killed someone).

You would need to keep it to evidenced, proven killings and also stop if you can't draw responsibility for a killing back to a singular individual. Summation/Arithmetic is still math.

[REQUEST] how fast would you have to walk to dodge a crossbow bolt?

3 Upvotes

So, let's assume that the individual in question is able to see the crossbow as a slow projectile, however it still has velocity(to give them a sense of where it is while also being able to perceive it, idk if that makes sense aha). However, the person is also granted with super-ordinary speed in momentary bursts. They then decide to walk out of the way of it

How fast would they have to walk to fully avoid it, and how would such a thing look like to the one firing the crossbow?

[REQUEST] If something has a 1 in 10 chance of occuring, what are the odds of it happening twice in a row?

2 Upvotes

Example: I went to a gas station yesterday and asked the attendant to pick me out a $10 scratch off ticket. The odds were 1:10. I won $50.

An hour later I stopped at a different gas station, had the attendant pick another $10 ticket. She also chose the 1:10 ticket. I won $50 again.

What are the odds of winning two 1:10 tickets in a row?

It should be factored in to the calculation: different GWPs / units, how many refrigerant leaked during normal operation in the device's lifecycle, how many lost during recovery method and how many not converted into it's components (after recovery) by just simply releasing into the air directly or mistake.
