scanning all these they all seem to stem from the same basic unease of infinite sets having zero measure.
I really like the argument in the xkcd comment. If you pick a random natural number, the next one you pick is almost surely greater than the one you picked. This right here precludes the idea of a uniform distribution on the naturals. The probability of picking any natural number we can represent given the matter available in the universe or less is 0 as there are infinitely many numbers greater than this.
