Why I need an android

So I was driving down the road and I passed three cars in a row that each had one headlight out. Being as I was in the car by myself, I was thinking out loud and I said, "Three padiddles in a row, what're the odds of that?", rhetorically of course. Then it occurred to me, if I had Data or C3P0 around, they would've rattled off the odds to me in annoyingly cliche form. How awesome would that be?


One percent of cars, according to a stat from Meineke, had some kind of light burned out. If we assume that there are something like 10 lights on your average car, that's 10^-3 per car, or one in a billion for three in a row.

Ha ha.
