    OK....Well, I wasn't on my way anywhere when the funny thing occured tonight. I was in my refrigerator, taking some crackers out of the box (please don't ask why the crackers are in the refrig....I don't want to talk about the ants that hide, and wait to see the groceries I bring home...soo...everything is in the refridge).
    Anyway, the plastic that wraps the crackers tore off....a piece, that is, and it danced thru the air on the wind currents my fan provided it.....I was peeved, as I figured it would land somewhere I'd have to crawl under, alongside, and squeeze my arm and hand, contortionist style, to get at.....not to mention develope a crink in my neck in doing this, just to retrieve the stupid piece of plastic......
    So, I helplessly watched it sail thru the air, dipping and slowing, accelerating and rising...at a much faster pace than I am telling this by the way.
    And just as my disheartened heart sunk....it landed....some six feet away, in the waste basket:eek:



    :p :p :p

    Why are the crackers are in the refrig!?!?!?
    Sorry... had to. :D
    But don't worry about it...
    I keep my undies in mine.

    Your experience is owed the absolute laws of probability.
    IF... you hadn't ran after it...
    The probability was high that it would have fell right on the floor.
    BUT... because you ran after it...
    The probability factor that it would fall into the rubbish bin was at least 50-50.
    BUT... if you didn't see it at all...
    The probability that it would fly out the window...
    Get caught within an updraft to 45,000 feet....
    Where it got caught on the face of a migrating goose, blinding it...
    Making the bird to lose direction and unfortunately getting sucked into the engine of a 747 on a non-stop flight to Indonesia...
    Causing engine failure and the unfortunate demise of 200+ passengers...
    Would have been greatly increased.

    Probably...

    You just saved the lives of 200+ airline passengers.

    I'd say that's cause for a trip to Disneyland. :)

    I thought Chaos and Fractal Theory died out in favour of String Theory years ago?
