A man who said he was scammed out of £80 when he tried to buy a PS3 on a website found a unique way of getting his own back - bombarding the trickster with the entire works of Shakespeare by text message.
Jesse Anderson has created a new version of the million-monkeys-on-a-million-typewriters thought experiment. He has built a simulator to pound out jibberish, imitating random pounding on a keyboard by monkeys, in an effort to find out whether enough random typing can eventually recreate the entire works of William Shakespeare. It seems like it can. The virtual monkeys have tapped out over ninety-nine percent of all of Shakespeare's plays, and have finished the poem "A Lovers Complaint" — which goes something like, "Wherefore am I surrounded by all these damn dirty apes?" (I think. I'm rusty on my Shakespeare.)
A UK man is currently texting the entire works of Shakespeare to a who refused to send him the PS3 he'd purchased. Ugh — how are British people so classy, even when they're getting revenge on each other?
