Right! but the radio commentatior was so happy that he know that it is not 50% that he falsely assumed "it is not much larger than 10%". (I added a sentence to clarify.)

comment half-plane percolation clusters
Very nice question. Are there reasons to believe that the behavior for the half plane is different than the behavior for the full plane?

comment The shortest path in first passage percolation
That's very interesting. I did not know that there is a (provable) lower bound for xsi and this certainly looks very relevant. (In fact stronger than my question...)
