       Absolutely [+]. I've always felt that it was a waste of the staff's time.

       Did you know, if you take a straight-sided bowl of Smarties and shake it long enough, the red ones rise to the top?

       I imagine that if an infinite number of monkeys shake an infinite number of bowls of Smarties, a few red ones will start rising to the top fairly quickly.

       Where I live Smarties are not chocolate.

       Will there also be a version of this for Hundreds and Thousands? If so, will it confirm the numbers, as well as sorting them by colour?

       Only to the appropriate number of significant figures.
Wrongfellow, Dec 30 2016
  

       Almost everyone I know has a significant figure.

       According to resident experts, this would destroy the main pleasure afforded by Smarties.
