OK... first of all... Let me start by saying that I typically am a very busy person. I have tons of things to do... more then can possibly be accomplished in the time that we have in this world, but I do what I can.
To that end, I don't sleep much during the week... sometimes I get as little as an hour or two of sleep, but I don't pull the all-nighters anymore unless I can really help it. I tend to catch up a bit on the weekends, but during the week, I get by on a few hours.
So, I generally consume lots of caffeine. In the winter, this is normally in the form of coffee, however... I normally only drink that during the colder months. Instead, I've turned to the nerd stable: Mountain Dew. (have other preferences, but that's the best option that's in the vending machine here at work.)
Now, when I started last time, Pepsi (bah, can't believe I've sunk so low as to consume Pepsi Products... My fridge at home is still stocked with Coke though...) was in the middle of a promotion where they were giving away cars and free $20 gas cards. Your entry was in the form of a code on the caps, and they gave away a car every day, and a free gas card every 10 minutes. I had intended on entering all the codes in one short period of time, in the middle of the night, during the week... but the contest ended before I could do that.
Well, they started again, this time giving away a Motorola Razr Music Phone (bah.. my SK3 is better! by far!) and free ring tones (which probably won't work for me anyway A quick check of their website, and sure enough.. no Sidekick support.). Ok, back story complete... no on to why I have absolutely no luck and why I choose to not leave anything that I care about at all up to chance.
The Promotion started on May 15th, and since then, I managed to consume 52 Bottles of Mountain Dew, and I have 52 Caps. According to their official rules, 1 in 12 caps is good for a free bottle of Mountain Dew when you buy one. Guess how many I have received after 52 bottles? Statistally speaking, I should expect to have won 4.333 free Mountain Dews by now. But no... I have 52 codes that are completely worthless to me. Well, maybe if I win a phone I can sell it on ebay or something.
So, what are the chances of getting 0 winners with a 1 in 12 chance after 52 trys? 1.0839% and if I don't win on the Next one, I'll be below 1%. Yay!
Oh well.. if it weren't for Bad Luck, I'd have No Luck at all!
And, I can't really think of anything else to add... so here ends my most pointless entry yet. Still want to post a few pics from my Summerfest encounter and some Fourth of July craziness, but haven't had time yet to go through the pics and stuff.. Soon!
The life and times of an atypical average guy.
