Infinite Monkeys

So, why does monkeybanana.ca employ the use of infinite monkeys? Because monkeys love bananas, and our bananas deserve the best writers, of course.

But really – it’s a theory that 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”. (credit: wikipedia)

And it seems to have found somewhat of a basis in a real experiment. One crazy monkey with programming skills developed a program that simulated simians’ synapses simultaneously scripting Shakespearean speech. The program ran billions of random combinations and almost completed one of Shakespeare’s works.

We then asked those monkeys for some help writing infinite words on infinite bananas. The result: you can send a monkey a banana by mail!

I like to send and eat bananas. I also like monkeys.
