What are the chances?

Is a terrible jumble of words. Here’s how likely these things were to have happened:

The Universe: 100%.

Humankind: 100%.

Anything that happened: 100%.

To belabor the point, in part to use that expression, which I learned in sixth grade but hadn’t employed since the spelling test, in larger part to construct a tripartite sentence structure of themes and callbacks, if a thing happened there is no chance it did not happen, no chance it would not happen.

What were the chances prior to the event? 100%. Because it happened.

This brings nothing to bear, an expression I think I understand despite lazily accepting that I cannot easily, and will not otherwise, discern how I came to do so, on the chances anything is anything else.

The chance chance exists: 0%.

If you can’t tell the difference, does it matter?
