Of paradoxes, playing cards, and pink kangaroos.

Been a long while since I've posted any filler, and since I'm bored out of my mind, don't want to touch maths or chem, and basically have nothing better to do, say hello to filler #3

Writing fillers based on nothing does have its limits as I expect it would eventually become repititive and boring, and therefore this filler will have some form of nonsensical content, in which I will be contrasting and drawing a link between paradoxes, playing cards, and pink kangaroos, random words which I just thought of. If you were putting off anything important, now is a good time to do it, before you start reading this and waste 5 minutes of your life on my random ramblings <-- *gasp* alliteration! Which just gave me a thought, attempting to write long sentences of alliterations. If I can think of anything. So anyway, on to my main substantive - What exactly do paradoxes, playing cards, and pink kangaroos have in common? Firstly, they all start with the letter 'p', which is extremely coincidental and amazing. FYI, there are 26 letters in the alphabet, so therefore the chances of all three words starting with the same letters is equivalent to 1/26^3, or 1/17576, which has a smaller chance of happening then drowing in your bathtub (1/11289 IIRC). A quick google also shows its got rather similar chances to 'death by Exposure to animate mechanical forces', (1/17549). So be careful when you shower today, and don't drown while attempting to wash your hair, or getting strangled by the showerhead somehow.

So anyway, this shows that starting with the same letter isn't all that trivial a similarity, and is occurs rather rarely. Really. Regarding realistic remaining resemblences, <-- (woo, long alliteration), they all are linked to 42. First, playing cards. If you play bridge, the average number of points in a game is approximately 42, because 40 from point cards, and 2 from long suits. Therefore we can see that playing cards are so clearly linked to the answer. In fact, since the answer is 'the Answer', we should all spend more time playing cards instead of studying, I mean, what's the point of learning stuff which is ultimately irrelevant when you could be playing a game to learn more about THE ANSWER! Is not the ultimate aim of education and humanity to find the answer about the universe, life, and everything? And the answer's sitting right in front of it, it's just that the teachers are just too shortsighted to realise that playing bridge should be encouraged. The bridge game was invented by humans, an idea which was realised by our subconscious innate desire which manifested itself into the answer in the form of points! Therefore, bridge is the ultimate game which can solve all our problems. But I digress. So now we see clearly and undeniably that bridge is definitely linked to 42. So what about paradoxes? Well, it's fairly obvious. When you have a paradox, you must look for the right answer. The answer is often complex and difficult to grasp, which therefore means that it is elusive. Which therefore means it must be 42, because 42 is the answer to everything, so when you have a question it must be 42. So paradoxes are basically attempts to find the question to the answer, like those weird thingies you do in primary school where you're given an answer and you must come up with a question. So paradoxes are intrinsically linked to 42 as well, which proves undeniably that paradoxes are extremely similar to playing cards. So finally we have to look at pink kangaroos. Well, the answer is rather obvious. How many pink kangaroos do you know that exist? 42. You know, that one, that one, and those other 40. Or if you count in another way, it's that, that, that, and the other 39. No matter how hard you try to look at it, it always comes back to 42 (Disclaimer, if you do not have enough general knowledge to know of 42 pink kangaroos, you need to read more.) Finally, the final similarity which is glaringly obvious between all of them. Well, it's so obvious you probably don't really need me to tell you what it is. I mean, the moment you see these 3 words (okay, so it's not 3 words.. 3 phrases. Sue me.), you'll think of this similarity. Well, maybe you can't count it as a similarity since it's so obvious, but still, I'll just list it here for the heck of it. Just for the few of you which might not have figured it out. Ninjas. Yeah, I know what you're thinking. 'Obviously they're all related to ninjas =.=;;', but this wouldn't be complete without listing ninjas, so yeah. Won't bother trying to explain how they're linked to ninjas, since it's so obvious it's impossible to explain. It's like explaining why 1+1=2. It just is.
