a very interesting topic! it's mind blowing to think that sum of infinite numbers can actually be a finite number!!

The book 'Algorithms to Live By' discuss this topic in details

What do you think about the limits of this rule, or where it shouldn't be applied?

good question! will have to think about it!

Personally I Feel That The 37 percent Rule can only be optimally applied in cases wherein time is Short, or waiting time per object is less, this would avoid the waste of better objects with reference to time window.....

Benford's Law
Benford's law is an observation about the leading digits of the numbers found in real-world data sets. Intuitively, one might expect that the leading digits of these numbers would be uniformly distributed so that each of the digits from 1 to 9 is equally likely to appear. In fact, it is often the case that 1 occurs more frequently than 2, 2 more frequently than 3, and so on. This observation is a simplified version of Benford's law. More precisely, the law gives a prediction of the frequency of leading digits using base-10 logarithms that predicts specific frequencies which decrease as the digits increase from 1 to 9.

Benford's law has been applied to entries on tax forms, election results, economic numbers, and accounting figures for fraud detection

very interesting! and this law is not applicable for restricted sets like human height which can't be 8 or 9 m
