Of couse it's not a coin-spy-racy! That would be foolish! Who would think such a thing? I'm ashamed you even brought it up!

ok, here's a couple of items culled from the past month or so that need to be remembered.

Remember a month or so ago there was a little bombing incident in London? You remember. It was in all the papers. TV. Everywhere.

Did you know there were Mock Terrorist Bombing drills going on in London that very morning?

Soon thereafter someone figured out the odds of such attacks occuring at the exact same places and time as the drills.

I quote:


PROBABILITY OF DRILL AND TERROR ATTACK COINCIDING BY CHANCE (10yr mean):
One chance in 3,715,592,613,265,750,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000


Pretty amazing, eh?

So, 3.7 duodecillion, give or take a few odd decillions. That's in the American system, of course, the British being indecipherable.

Weedmaster indeed! Isn't that some sort of lawn care device? Or perhaps an inscrutable oriental marijuana user?

but, did you read the link? Even if you leave out a few quintillion here and there, it's still a mighty big number.

Mighty big.

I entertain myself by gazing at the image of Colonel Bleep. I'm easy.
