I removed this paragraph:

Carter said that the chances of choosing an inhabited reality where astronomical, but even if you accept that realities can exist without something being aware of them, entirely possible, there are still an infinite number of both inhabited and uninhabited realities, thus equal chances of getting one that is uninhabited, and so a statistical chance of 50%.


I do not believe this is true. To take a simple comparison, there are an infinite number of angles between 0 degrees and 90 degrees (1 degree, 1.1 degrees, 1.01 degrees and so forth) just as there are an infinite angles between 90 degrees and 360 degrees. However if you throw a dart at a target and measure its angle from the bullseye then it's three times more likely to be between 90 and 360 than between 0 and 90.


Those with knowledge of continuous probability can also see this in terms of the normal distribution (or any other for that matter). There are an infinite number of values a standard normal distribution can take both above and below 1.96 however the probability of the distribution taking a value above 1.96 is 2.5%. More complicated arguments can be used that involve measure theory but I don't think they're necessary here.

Hi, I made a change to the page. I took this out from the goofs: In Mckay's original recording in "Letters from Pegasus", he was dressed in his field gear complete with tactical vest; however, when Jeannie watches the recording in this episode, Mckay is wearing his normal blue scientist uniform.

Because it wasn't accurate. I you watch the aforementioned episode, you can see that McKay do wears his blue uniform.
