    While browsing a random book, I stumbled upon this page:
    https://libraryofbabel.info/bookmark.cgi?loz_decendants_of_the_hero

    Now, this may not look like much to you, but to me, this is an exact copy of a collaboration I am working on with some friends. The thing is, what are the odds that I stumbled upon my own writing on accident?

    And that is exactly why I made this thread. If this site has this collab on it, (A collab which started months after the finalization of the generation of books) Imagine the possibilities of what it could hold. Even more so, if I can find a piece of text that I was part of, What if somebody were too see the opening paragraph of a book they have yet to write, or the end to a movie that has yet to come out. Essentially, even though most of this site is gibberish, so much of it could be more useful than anybody could imagine.

    Dude, we all know you just searched for that string of text and it sent you to the page that has that. There is no way you hit random and found that.

    well, each line contains 80 characters, and there are 40 characters, so there are (80)(40)=3200 characters on each page.

    there are 29 possible characters; the 26 letters of the alphabet, the coma, the period, and the space.

    therefore, there are 29^3200 possible pages in this library, which implies that the odds of you finding any one page is 1/29^3200… which is indeed a very low probability.
