What if I use bitaddress.org to create 30000 addresses 200 times. Then I use a script to check if any of these addresses have been used on the network. If they have, then I have their private key.

Then I will make this script open source.

I think I read somewhere the odds of picking two addresses the same is astronomically slim.

This already exists.

Using it for this purpose is a waste of time and money.

Human beings seem to have a very difficult time grasping just how big the number 2160 is.
