    Aha—all this time I thought I had too small a boat, it turns out it was actually a few orders of magnitude too big!

    Of course, there is a finite (if extremely tiny!) chance of that happening spontaneously, providing there is a difference in gravitational potential between the two. However, I don't think it would be wise to hold your breath - you're in a better position than I to compute the probability, but I guess it comes out at "could happen once in a period many times the known age of the cosmos"!
