    We just went over 500 members and climbing. That's a lot o Monkeys!


    If we keep this up, somebody will eventually type out the collected works of Shakespeare. (anybody get that one)?

    That means we probably gotta go on a lobbyist watch list for wielding political influence..

    I can't find a solid source, T3. Also; versions differ, but here's the basic:

    The infinite monkey theorem states that: An infinite amount of monkeys with typewriters, over an infinite amount of time, will write the complete works of Shakespeare.

    I don't have a source either, just one of those things you soak in somewhere I guess. I did see it hinted at in an episode of "The Lone Gunmen".... funny show.

    We need all we can get. Lets go for some group discounts on things we need. I've been linking our humor section over on other websites so they will come here. A lot of political forums on sites are banning posts that we talk about here. I see a wave coming.[applaud]
