I thought I'd try something fun with you guys here in the Café.
Just last night I had a dream where I was able to influence the throw of three quarters across space and time by simply having you read certain words off your computer screen right before you throw the coins down. You'll need three quarters for this. There are only three ways these three quarters can fall, all heads, all tails, or a combination of heads and tails. I will go against the two to one odds and try to influence the coins to fall as a combination of heads and tails. This works because my magical selection of words will influence reality. It doesn't matter when you decide to do this. Cup the quarters in your hands and shake them as you read. Here are the words: Quarters In my cupped hands Three quarters Heads Tails Anabelle's will complied a combination a mixture as I release the coins Anabelle's will complied across space and time one ... two ... three! Release the coins. Please report your results. If all goes well and if energy is correctly aligned, everyone who tries this should throw down a combination of heads and tails, even though I'm attempting to influence the throw of the coins across space and time against the obvious odds against me. My second space and time experiment will involve cards. Btw, this is all in fun. Anabelle

Two tails, one heads.
I did it again using three doubleheaded quarters. It was 2 heads and 1 tails. Does that count? Rick

All Heads, but no sticky goo... :/ Maybe that's a good thing.

Nevertheless, you might be interested to know that the odds FAVOR a combination of heads and tails to be thrown, OVER all tails and all heads, by a ratio of 3:1. So you are a 75% FAVORITE to get a combo rather than all tails or all heads. (Explanation for those interested: There are a total of 8 combinations of 3 coins: 2 x 2 x 2 = 8, since each coin has 2 possibilities, either heads or tails. Out of these 8 possibilities, only 2 of them are all heads or all tails, namely HHH or TTT. Six of the 8 possibilities are combos: HTT, HTH, HHT, THH, THT, TTH. So the chances of getting a combo are 6 out of 8, or 75%. The odds are 6 to 2, or 3 to 1, in FAVOR of getting a combo). It seems like you calculated the odds as ONE possiblity of all heads, ONE possibility of all tails, and ONE possiblity of a combo, so that the odds would be 2 to 1 against a combo. The above analysis should make it clear why that method of calculation is faulty. I am inclined toward mysticism, but not without recognizing reality and its laws. In fact, I see the mystical realm as complementary, rather than in conflict with, the laws of nature, including probability. I think that my philosophy is even consistent with ye olde time religion, Paganism, as well as various magical systems. Perhaps you ought to try to influence reality with your words, with a view to getting all tails or heads. The odds against you would be 3 to 1, and doing better than 25% all heads or tails of the total throws, would be an achievement. Blessed be, Arnon

Heh, I was under the impression that she knew that all along.

Interestingly, mathematics predicts that 75% of all outcomes should be combos.
So far, here's what has been reported in this thread: Combos: Sibbie Tony Iacoviello thomas hastings rick727 Tom Cutts chichi711 piefke666 fishwasher All heads or tails: Entity Patrick Redford Andini So 8 out of 11 outcomes have been combos, and 8/11 = 72.7% The mathematical expectation, as I've shown, is 75% So even on this short run, the results are as expected mathematically. Put another way, the difference from the expected mathematical outcome is less than 2.3% ! Sorry, but no magic here. P.S. Xiqual, have I disappointed you by trying to awaken some of us from the slumber of ignorance, rather than sleeping myself?

Maybe I should've played it differently, seems to me maybe some people thought I was actually trying to influence reality through space and time, though I did say this was "all in fun" on the bottom of my original post. Space and Time Experiment #2 cancelled. Anabelle
