OK, I want you all to pick a number from one to ten. Why, you may ask. Well, I have a pet theory that I have never been able to test completely nor prove, and probably never will. My theory is that the most number picked will be an odd one, not an even one. If you had the numbers picked by random, it would seem to me that half of the numbers picked would be odd and the other half even. It just never seems to work out that way. OK, tell me, what was the first number that popped into your mind after you read that first sentence?
I wrote a blog back on December 9th about randomness that may tie into what I am trying to say today. You may want to go back and check it out: http://dizzydick.blogspot.com/2012/12/wondering-about-randomness.html
I asked my wife to pick a number between one and ten and she picked an odd one. I believe I would have, also. What about you? Randomness is suppose to be predictable in science but it isn't. Why, because it deals with random things. (grin) I read where someone said that if you gave a million typewriters to a million monkeys that they could produce a novel or reproduce one of the old masterpieces. Yeah, right!!! I also read where someone tried an experiment where they put a bunch of typewriters together with a bunch of monkeys and all the monkeys did was throw them around and use them as toilets. Of course some of the novels written today fit in nicely with toilets. So don't monkey around, but just have one heck of a great day today, you hear?
