892: Null Hypothesis

Null hypothesis

4/28: Randall Munroe clicks the "random article" link on Wikipedia and writes a comic based on its contents.

4/29: The article is vandalized.

Solution: Track Randall's Wikipedia usage and protect any page he spends more than a minute looking at. The page can safely be deprotected a week later.
