Sure, only problem is that Donald Duck could be either a Duck or a human
(or both in some proportion, given our discussion). In my pseudo-analysis,
the two events are not mutually exclusive (part human, part Duck), but they
surely are *EXHAUSTIVE*!!! Your computer (or anything else for that matter)
are not elements of my relevant sample space. :-) QED :-)
