Improbable

By Steve Cavin

Flip the coin, come up "heads", Fifty percent of the time. One coin, two faces, Exactly fifty percent. Roll the dice, get a seven, Sixteen and two-thirds percent of the time. Six ways to make seven, thirty-six combinations, Sixteen and two-thirds percent. I wonder what the chances are, If I ask you to have dinner with me, That you will say "yes". Maybe, maybe not. |
Spin the wheel, land on black, Forty-eight point six five percent of the time. Eighteen black, thirty-eight slots. Forty-eight point six five percent. Pull the trigger, and you're dead, Sixteen and two-thirds percent of the time. One bullet, six chambers. Sixteen and two-thirds percent. What were the odds, That you would be born? One chance, one billion sperm, One hundred percent. |
