I think someone a million times richer than me could beat me at tic-tac-toe
via a fairly straightforward strategy. Someone a million times smarter
than me? Sure. No question. There's a thousand ways and those are just
the ones I can think of off the top of my head. Real life isn't like math
because in real life there's always a way to cheat.
