Update: I made this when I was fifteen. Settle down.

circa 2012:

BEFORE YOU LEAVE A REVIEW, take this with a grain of salt- many of the "facts" here are purely theoretical and unquantifiable, as is the exact odds of your existence. This animation was created to entertain, and lots of my research has been simplified to reach a greater audience (not to say it isn't accurate, however, it's all as accurate as I could ever get). So don't get all science-y on me, I'm not a professional science-y guy. I just googled some data and multiplied it all together for your amusement. ~Enjoy!

Originally created for NATA 2012, which I ended up winning. Rad!

So this one's actually been finished for a while now, but I didn't have the chance to upload it because of some video file conversion issues, which were resolved by my good pal Ricepirate (thanks!) It's way different than anything else I've ever done, but I think you'll enjoy it anyway :)

So a quick word on the tournament this was for-
I had 25 days to make this, so naturally I saved pretty much all of it for the last week or so. Then a series of increasingly misfortunate things happened, such as my graphics tablet breaking, not being able to find my files, and accidentally overwriting half of my movie seven hours before the deadline. Somehow I managed to pull all the pieces back together, and as luck would have it, I came in first place for the round. My direct opponent for that round, Slackman, came in a close second, which means if I had gotten any lower than first, I would have lost before the semi-finals.

If something exists, it must have ALWAYS existed, for something cannot be made out of nothing.

And if something is always being, ALL that is possible within it will manifest itself, no matter how slight the chance being.

I'd say that the odds are 100%

However, true random cannot even exist, since if something exists, it has to operate under some rules, like if you flip a coin it follows the laws of physics, how the coin lands is solely determined by those laws, so its not truly random :P

That is one simply designed flash,yet it is so enlightening in its message of how special Life is,that it reminds those who tend to forget it doing their daily businesses in this rapidly developing world.It also points out what a real gift Life is(although it can be a little frightening with the odds of that not being born at all,for example)but that makes Life all the more special.Kudos to the creators for making this.
