while it would theoretically take thousands of years to brute force it, random chance has them guess the right sequence on the first try (it could happen).

I came up with this theory in college, that if you throw your keys at the door an infinite number of times, the correct key will inevitably insert itself correctly into the keyhole, engage the tumblers, and open the door. This has not happened yet. Also please note: do not try this with your car.

The absent ones are always at fault.
