Monkey See, Monkey Do


Recommended Posts

There is an old saying about probability that goes something like this (and I may be getting a few of the details wrong):

 

If you put a hundred monkeys in a large room with a typewriter and give them an indefinite food supply and the ability to reproduce, within ten million years, at least one of them will have turned out a Shakespeare sonnet.

 

I would like to propose an alternate theory...

 

If you put a hundred Stratfordians in a large room with a typewriter and give them an indefinite food supply and the ability to reproduce, within ten million years, at least one of them will have turned out the words, "Bacon is Shakespeare."

I'm afraid that the RSPCA might have something to say about that.

"Infinite monkey theorem"

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Infinite_monkey_theorem

Great Wiki article by the way if you take time to look at.

Regardless of the odds, if there is not zero possibility, then it is possible. May be highly unlikely, yet still possible.

I hear Power Ball is at 725 Million, I will go buy a couple tickets. 😉

I love that song by the Doobie Bros. - "What a Strat believes".
