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.

What are the odds?

Orange im sorry to disapoint you but the rules them selves were created thanks to those odds. The chances that every particle can at some point assemble to create matter is incredible.
Aslo the matter itself whas determined by random. If wood burns it will create smoke. The CO2
is the logical result of the processe, but what if wood would ave been made of metal or other unknown substence! The world is random, but it does follow a line. Unless if there is a major change, the basic laws like gravity, energy, and the rule that nothing is created or destroyed, will never change. We cant rewrite the past... We can only influence the future. «Add more rules»

And to finish... If you say that you CHOSE to influence the future in a direction its also chance. We are humans, we ave the power to chose so what are the odds of picking this single option?
I only hoppe were lucky and someone finds the answer to this riddle!

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
