Oh man, I'm -always- thinking about stuff like this.
No matter how improbable such a specific sequence is, it's still physically possible for it to happen.
I spent ages the night wondering how many times you'd have to generate a sequence of words to get a story that both makes sense and is a great read

This is one of the best webcomics I've ever seen. My compliments. Have a look at my webcomic.

P.S. I'm subscribing!

@frosty

taking the average amount of words in the english dictionary (600,000) then taking let's say, a 200 word story. that'd be 600,000^200 (600,000 to the 200th power) which is a 1/4268252238120274007969748915187737323429887453544894294954790789351129295496197390190721393407570972968128154666761298309544652405175952423840155919198453760000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000 chance of making a good story.

With any luck, it'll be the first one, and not the 4268...999th one

using scientific notation makes numbers look puny!
