Concept: Zeroes of Improbability
Like the Nines of Uptime/Availability (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/High_availability#%22Nines%22), Zeroes of Improbability are a measure of how improbable an event is, using classical probability.
The Zeroes number for a probability is the number of left-sided zeroes in the probability when presented as a decimal <= 1:
1.0: zero zeroes
0.9: 1 zero
0.0000000001: 10 zeroes of improbability

New blog post on the inspirations for Pak Parang's architecture!
Free plot idea: An enclosed O'Neill cylinder-type space colony (no windows) where all the clocks are networked, where the colony admin has been speeding up the network clock as an experiment on the human psyche, to see what happens when humans live a few fewer hours to the day. But one of the colonists has a mechanical clock....
4564 words, and we've reached the point in the #writing process where dream logic has surrendered to rational actors, but now I need to decide how the character escapes a convention center:
