to blog, or not to blog

Have you heard the theory that given enough monkeys mashing on keyboards (and enough time), they will eventually produce Shakespeare?
The infinite monkey theorem states that a monkey hitting keys at random on a typewriter keyboard for an infinite amount of time will almost surely type a given text, such as the complete works of William Shakespeare.
Thanks to the Internet, we can actually try it out. Think of this blog as monkey #1,596,270,109 taking his place at the typewriter. This is where I will dump my random thoughts on life, and although I doubt that anyone will find anything I write particularly enlightening, I write with the hope that "putting pen to paper" will help me to refine my own thoughts into something a little less random.
