What are the odds?
I have a couple of watches that I normally wear, and most are automatic watches (the kind that winds up as you move), and I have one watch that is a manual wind up.
I had been wearing a watch for weeks and I decide one morning that I should change, so I go pickup the manual windup watch, that I have not worn for months. I’m about to wind it up and set the the time and realize that I don’t need to, as the current time ws 7:28am and that is exactly the time that was on the watch (checked my treo also, same time). All I had to do was wind it up.
So now that I’m thinking about it and blogging this, the odds of me picking up a stopped watch at the exact time that it was stopped is 1:1440. So it’s high, but not sure how that compares to other odds, so I searched around and found some sites that listed various odds, the first is light-hearted
The second being very macarbe, listing all the various odds of dying at the national safety council site.
