Quote of the Day

We've heard that a million monkeys at a million keyboards could produce the complete works of Shakespeare. Now, thanks to the Internet, we know that is not true.

I've heard the whole "Million Monkeys, million years = Shakespeare" thing many times before. Then I considered the fact that we've had billions of humans writing thousands of years and only one of them has produced the complete works of Shakespeare, so maybe he just got lucky.
