I just notice the below block at http://blockchain.info/

http://blockchain.info/block-index/786604/000000000000003a857b3d977333cf16276af30d16ada38ac4f838d33ba4a206

Is it odd that someone found a block with 1 transaction in 1 minute with a target hash that is almost 16 times (4 bits) more difficult than the prior or subsequent blocks? Or is this just the luck of the draw? I understand random chance, just have never seen it so dramatically.

Yeah, I guess it happens. I was just struck by the combination of zero outside transactions, fast generation time, and increased difficulty all at once.

fast generation and only 1 transaction, is corelated. if there happede no transactions in that time, none gets included.

Damn, Red, that block be crazy, yo. 149789 came up to me a while ago and was all like "Break yourself, fool!" and I was like, "Shiiiiiit!" because he made me fuck up. I was in the middle of hashing, slinging that hash and shit like I'm always doing, and that fucker done made me knock out an orphaned block. Eight-nine just laughed and threw little nonces at me until I stepped up to him. "Son, you better watch yourself, because last I checked I'm higher on the merkle tree than your tiny-hash joke of a block. You fuck with me, you mess with the entire chain, bitch. You ain't even got no transactions but the fifty you stole from your gramma."

That dude, 89, just quietly stepped back from me with his hands up. Then he reaches down, unzips, and whips out his hash function. That fucker wasn't sporting SHA-256. His was at least 384, maybe even 512. Yeah, so, I had to give him a little bit of respect and now we're cool. I bet that guy has to stand up on a stool just to piss without getting wet. Man, I wouldn't mess with him unless you've got quite a bit of MD padding in your pants.

I haven't seen him around in a while, though. I heard a rumor that he might be doing a dime up at Mt. Gox for some shady double-spending scheme.
