5cats: The chess one is true simply because there is no limit to how long a game of chess can go on.

@duckboy: While I agree that there's a LOT of "possible games" there`s also LOTS of atoms in a human body (SEE: #24!), nevermind the "known universe" eh? Eventually, a chess game has a "finite" number of moves, even if 2 Kings chase each other around the board? EVENTUALLY the "repeated move" rule will be invoked and the game over. Yes it`s a -huge- number, but not even close to the human body atoms. IMHO.

@Neoptolemous: #38: yes

@Tommy2X4: Words of wisdom! Also: if you break your crayons in half? They only burn for 15 minutes...

@Angilion: Smart as ever!

Wow Gerry, Angilion just made you look sloppy and stupid. Well actually, you made yourself look that way, he just pointed it out.

#14 the sound from space was "WOW" in hex code


Which hex code are you claiming was used? It obviously couldn't have been raw hex because there isn`t a `W` in hex, so you must be claiming that it`s some form of encoding the Latin-derived alphabet in hex.

The signal was originally printed as "6EQUJ5", which obviously isn`t hex either (it`s a description of the intensity of the signal), and the signal itself contained no meaning. The signal wasn`t "WOW", "6EQUJ5" or any other numbers or letters - if it had been then a lot more attention would be paid to it because that would prove that it`s artificial.

It`s called the "wow signal" because when the researcher say it on the printout they wrote "WOW!" next to it because it was a much stronger signal than the background and they couldn`t explain it.
