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?

this makes me feel like shit =(


Rated 0 / 5 stars

well actually there might be that many COMBINATIONS but saying that my life was unlikely to happen is wrong. since animals reproduce themselves even if it wasnt me, someone had to be born. and then it would be that someone to live my life. so the specific chance of that person being me is small. but SOMEONE had to be lived. let me say it in math context: chance of being me 1/10^x where x is a very big number. but chance of someone being born = 1/1. that means there is 100% chance of someone being born. so this is just stupid actually.

Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

Well, what are the odds that someone would flip a coin to land on it's side 3000 times while being in Alaska where everyone sneezes at the exact same time while being struck by lightning 1200 times, winning the jackpot 100 consecutive times, and surviving it all.
