    IF I worked late, I would have noticed this sooner. How ironic is that?
    If my calculations are correct, the odds would 2:7.

    math lesson (from GMT+1). Just happen to have internet now.

    Let's suppose that any given PM selects one of the hammocks with equal probability, 1/3, independent of the others.

    The first PM selects one not already selected, with probability 1.
    The chance that the second PM picks one that the first one did not is
    (1/3 + 1/3) = 2/3.

    The chance that the second PM selects one that the first one did not, AND
    that the third one picks the one neither of the other two did is
    (2/3)*(1/3) = 2/9.

    This is the same kind of logic behind the "birthday paradox", in which one can show that the chance of some pair of people in a group of size 25 or so
    having the same birthday is nearly 1/2.

    Let me tell you about the Monty Hall problem sometime...

    Ew... Math...
    You had to go get all this math stuff going.
    and sadly, I'm not sure I got it...
    Probability is not my friend.
    Well... Math in general isnt...

    I love you Daddy


    Although the birthday part was interesting...

    Brandon!!!
    Why did you post this at commute time in the East Coast? Why? Why? Why? And to think I had to leave work 15 minutes early today.

    But... ain't it nice to have a product in such demand? Good for you.
