Notable security quote: insane probabilities

Yes, of course an infinite number of texts hash to the same
value; that's the way the function works.  But the odds of it happening
naturally are less than the odds of all the air molecules bunching up in
the corner of the room and suffocating you, and you can't force it to
happen, either.

--Bruce Schneier
