This is on par with the line of vision thing

A commercial that really and truly bothers me is the Chevy commercial where it starts raining shoes, and the woman gets out of her car and starts transporting armfuls of the shoes into her trunk.

Let's say it really did start raining shoes. If it did, the parameters would probably stretch at least a couple of miles, and even a few city blocks is far. Therefore, it's realistic to think that the probability of actually being able to locate a PAIR of shoes, especially when your strategy is not to carefully look but to merely grab random shoes, is relatively low. This really upset me, because if it's going to be raining pretty shoes and you're going to willy nilly grab some at random, what is the point? Why have only half of a pair of 60-80 shoes?

I know what you're thinking - maybe she wouldn't have time to search out the other half to a pair. It would be illogical, because who knows how far away the other shoe is, and the probability of someone else employing your strategy and grabbing it at random is high. But c'mon guys: it's raining shoes. It's not like there is going to be a traffic jam if you leave your chevy in the middle of the road for a while, and maybe you could enlist a stranger to buddy up with you and help both of your odds of finding two matching shoes and, thus, a wearable pair each.

Something to sleep on.
