OK lets move on to Q3, I'll try to use a subset of English from now on
so there's no ambiguity with technical words.

At time 0 there are 0 people flipping coins.
At time 1/2 there is 1 person flipping coins at t=1/2, t=3/4, t=7/8...
At time 3/4 there is another person flipping coins at t=3/4, t=7/8,
t=15/16..
At time 7/8 another person joins in flipping coins...
and so on...

At time t = 1, Herc starts flipping coins at t=1, t=2, t=3, t=4, t=5...

How long does Herc flip out for until it is recognised he is unique
from all of the masses?

Herc
