The Infinite Monkey Theorem, stating that
monkeys with typewriters and enough time
could produce the entire works of Shakespeare,
has been tried out in real life, They wrote five

What in Davy Jones’ locker did ye just bark at me, ye scurvy bilgerat? I’ll have ye know I be the meanest cutthroat on the seven seas, and I’ve led numerous raids on fishing villages, and raped over 300 wenches. I be trained in hit-and-run pillaging and be the deadliest with a pistol of all the captains on the high seas. Ye be nothing to me but another source o’ swag. I’ll have yer guts for garters and keel haul ye like never been done before, hear me true. You think ye can hide behind your newfangled computing device? Think twice on that, scallywag. As we parley I be contacting my secret network o’ pirates across the sea and yer port is being tracked right now so ye better prepare for the typhoon, weevil. The kind o’ monsoon that’ll wipe ye off the map. You’re sharkbait, fool. I can sail anywhere, in any waters, and can kill ye in o’er seven hundred ways, and that be just with me hook and fist. Not only do I be top o’ the line with a cutlass, but I have an entire pirate fleet at my beck and call and I’ll damned sure use it all to wipe yer arse off o’ the world, ye dog. If only ye had had the foresight to know what devilish wrath your jibe was about to incur, ye might have belayed the comment. But ye couldn’t, ye didn’t, and now ye’ll pay the ultimate toll, you buffoon. I’ll **** fury all over ye and ye’ll drown in the depths o’ it. You’re fish food now.

Oh, God. I haven't seen the pirate one in forever. This was so well done.

my GF of 2 years broke up with me tonight, and I want you to know this made me laugh, something I thought I'd never do again. Kind of a stupid thing to think but that's the kind mindset I'm in right now.

Thank you sir. .. er. 'matey.

What the flip did thee just flipping gabble about me, thine miniscule bitch? I’ll have thee know I bested the most prestigious jousting class in the whole of Camelot, and I hath been involved in numerous secret marches on behalf of his Majesty, King Arthur, and I hath over 300 confirmed victories on horseback. I am trained in castle of Guerrilla warfare and I am indeed the highest ranking joustee in the entire land of Great Britannia. Thee are nothing to me but another false crossbearer. I will joust thine shambles with precision the likes of which hath never been observed in the King’s lands, mark my flipping words! Thou think thou can escape retribution by shouting that hogwash at me from afar? I implore thee to think again, peasant. As we converse I am contacting my secretive network of knights across the realm and thine footsteps are being traced right now, so thou best prepare thineself for the storm, pig-maggot! The storm that wipes out the pathetic little thing thou call your armour. Thou art a flipping dead man. I can be anywhere, anytime, and I can kill thou in over seven hundred ways, and that’s just with my bare lance. Not only am I extensively trained in mounted combat, but I hath access to the entire arsenal of the Kings Royal Army, and I shall use it to its full extent to wipe your miserable derriere off the face of the realm, thou miniscule feaces. If only thou could have foreseen what unholy retribution your little “clever” challenge was about to bring down upon thee, maybe thou would have held thee flipping tongue. But thou couldn’t, thou didn’t, and now thee art paying the price, you goddamn fool. I shall **** fury all over thou britches and thee will drown in it. Thou art flipping dead, child.

I bite my thumb, what didst thy just confoundedly sayeth concerning me, thou petite female hound? I shalt ensure that thou knowest I wast educated at the pinnacle of mine establishment within Our Majesties Noble Army, and assuredly, I hast been instumental in numerous secretive attacks on Napoleons Rabble, and assuredly I hast accumulated over fifteen score confirmed deaths. I wast taught in the strategy of Footmans warfare, besides which I am most definitely the most gifted rifleman in the entirety of His Majesties Riflemen. Thou art worth nought unto me, but verily art no more than another target. I shalt wipest thou and thy bloodline out using precision of which there hath never been before, nor after upon this Earth so wonderfully made, thou canst jot mine words. Dost thou think thee canst getteth away with these sayings of dirt unto mine ears upon the scrolls? Ponderest this once more, plebian. As this letter is scribed, I sendeth word unto mine spies and cutthroats, found across the known world, and thy location is being determined as of now, so preparest thyself for mine storm of vengance, thou offal mound. This mighty storm that shalt blot out thine pathetic soul from this earth. Thou art assuredly dead, sir. I canst appear at any place, at any time, possessing knowledge to slayest thou in over thirty and five score ways, only utilising mine empty hands. Not only this, I also possess the favour of the entirety of His Majesties Royal Army, and thy canst count on me using this up to its fullest extent, purely to wipest thy sullen backside off the surface of this landmass, thou intolerable goat. If only thou couldst have understood the unhallowed retribution thy “intelligent” remark wast to bring down upon thine head, thou mightest have held thy flapping tongue. But alas, thou couldst not, thou didst not, and now thou shalt pay the fee, thou thrice damned dunce. I shalt relieve my wrath upon thee and thou shalt perish in it. Thou art accursedly dead, beast.

Not particularly. Maybe the whole works of shakespeare being typed out is a bit far-fetched, but for instance we managed to beat Pokemon Red with 100k people typing commands. At the point it might as well have been monkeys.

The fact they didn't use infinite monkeys or take infinite time probably means they were doomed to fail.

The thing about statistical possibilities is yes, technically almost everything is possible!

However, the chances of such specific events happening, is so infinitely low, (and so close to zero) with so many variables and unforeseen events, that, you could wait a trillion years and never have all of those things happen!

So these concepts are pretty stupid. Sure, infinite monkeys might be able to randomly produce the works of Shakespeare, but it would be no different than any other mathematical anomaly on astronomically impossible scales. Big woop. It's like saying given enough time random pixels might make a flower, it's just an odds game, one close to zero

TL;DR **** like this sounds smart, but it's still pretty retarded

That's the point. You know the thing you just explained, that's the whole point of the theorem. Too explain what you just explained.

well to begin with, if you actually had infinite monkeys with infinite typewriters the complete works of shakespeare would be written instantly

along with every other possible combination of letters ever

if it is possible and you have an infinite amount of time and monkeys, it will happen eventually no matter what, if something is infinite every possibility in that infinity will ocur,
it will take forever, no pun intended but it is still going to happen

So what you're saying is that the theorem is stupid because once we have INFINITE MONKEYS sitting at INFINITE TYPEWRITERS, Shakespeare would take TOO LONG???

In case the fact that the theorem talks about fictional infinities went over your head, it exists to make a point, not to say we should assemble infinite monkey/typewriters and try to get Shakespeare from them.

PS, infinite monkeys with infinite typewriters would create the entire works of Shakespeare in as long as it takes to type all the letters, which Shakespeare himself managed to do in somewhat less than a trillion years.

1 that's the point of the theorem (randomness + infinity = everything)

2 the experiment showed that monkeys arent random (monkeys + infinity = rrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr rrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr rrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr rrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr rrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr rrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr rrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr...)

Do you even know what the infinite monkey theorem is?

Hurr durr a theory about something with an infinitismly small chance of happening is stupid because the chance of the thing happening is really small.

That's the point *******.

I wouldn't call it a redundancy. Without that theorem to start with basically the entirety of the study of statistics couldn't exist. It might be pretty straightforward, but someone had to come up with it in the first place and had to make it official.
