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?
