This morning we have a very exciting announcement from AAC-Labs, the research arm here at Attainable Adventure Cruising Ltd World Headquarters.
After a six month intense project made possible by funding from the Government of Canada, The US National Science Foundation, and the European Union, we are pleased to announce the formulation of a set of fundamental governing principles, which will change offshore sailing forever, named Chris’ Law after the lead researcher.
- Under the best of circumstances there is better than a 95% chance a bottle of whiskey will survive a significant maintenance event.
- In the universe of outcomes there is a 32% chance of bottle exhaustion.
- No matter how good the weather and how well estimated the job, when access sucks, the whiskey hasn’t got a chance.
* must be normalized for drinking habits.
** different multipliers may be required for Rum, Armagnac, Grappa, etc.
*** in cases of very bad access, whiskey may be used as a lubricant.
- Constant 0.099 allows for hope by keeping the worst initial case at 0%.
- Total in cell F6 is as bad as it can get in a rational world.
- Constant 1.618 is phi, the Golden Ratio, the number by which all things ugly are made beautiful.
- The “Bs”are the multiplied expectation and accessibility scores.
