Keyboard mashing can produce word patterns. If someone is mashing a keyboard and accidentally mashes "t" and "h", there is no magical force in the universe which quickly checks an English dictionary and stops the masher from mashing any button which would create a word ("the", for example). That's the thing about infinity - it makes the massively unlikely infinitely more likely. As long as something is not impossible, if attempted an infinite number of times, it is possible that it will happen.
If the universe is truly infinte, not only if something's possible will it happen, but it will happen an infinte number of times. Infinity gets...weird...when you start thinking about it.
