Hamlet is ~157929 characters long. Just Hamlet.
If you had a super computer that could generate a random 157929 character string 1 quintillion times a second, it would take the entire age of our universe (13.7 billion years) 10^10^5.876431387628888 times over for Hamlet to be written.
Which is to say the entire universe would likely be dead (expanded and collapsed) for trillions of years by the time the super computer would finish.
To put it another way, it's beyond the scope of time. All the time that has existed and that will ever exist is not enough to produce Hamlet.
Here's the wolframalpha computation. http://bit.ly/rcE7MQ
Factor of 157929 (157929!) divided by 1 quintillion, divide that by 13.7 billion years.
I don't know maths, maybe this is wrong.
Yeah, you're right, my math and model aren't quite right. Fucking forever, nonetheless.
