Head or tails coin toss has not 50-50 chance! [Random Knowledge #34]
posted March 29 2013 21:10.28 by Giorgos Lazaridis




Sounds weird? Like, if you toss a coin 1000 times, what would be the identical chance for head or tails? It would be 500, right? WRONG! That is because the engraves on the two sides do not have identical weight! Normally the head weights more, so it has more chances to end up on the bottom...
