I’ll admit it. The first thing I thought of is Family Guy.
Thanks for the link to Buffon’s Needle. When I posted this method here a few months ago (albeit with toothpicks), I didn’t know it had a name; now I do. Yay! for today.
First thing I thought of was the Hipster Grifter. I remember it being reported as a pickup line of hers. Wonder what happened to her (I know, Google is my bestie).
