2020 happened to me.
This aged well.
Yeah but it’s all cumulative. 1 in 112 million for a vending machine, 1 in 60000 from a bee or hornet, one in 140000 from lightning- you can only roll the dice so many times before you get a one.
1 in 112 million is the commonly quoted number. It’s probably quicker to look it up than make it up these days, though actually writing the number down properly clearly takes a little more effort.
The 1951 one?
This is more of a surprise than Andrew, I’ll say that.
I’m perpetually amazed at people who want something taken away from everyone just because they don’t care for it, and doubtless then complain about cancel culture when anyone under 50 does the same thing.
They help prevent a number of airborne diseases, add a dash of colour, and maybe make optical surveillance a somewhat more difficult problem – what’s not to like?
Yay, continuity! I’m too lazy to find the strip but I remember the discussion on that picture back when cellardoor used to post here.
Yeah, I know. I was joking.
Nancy… In…. Space…..!
