THANKS THIS IS GREAT

Ok, that's leading me to think it's a random crapshoot as to whether your answer will be correct or not.  Bugger!
It's a total crapshoot, yes. How it works: A random number is generated between 0 and 99. Option A is correct if this number is 50 or less. Otherwise B. Always, therefore, choose A, favored 51% to 49%, for your 2% edge. Tongue And remember, DEATH TO ALL NESSES.

Well, you know what they say: when you're right 51% of the time, that means you're also wrong 49% of the time.  Angry

Actually, how it works is that if you have a 50/50 chance of being right, you will be wrong 90% of the time.

Yep, probability sucks.  Just because you have a 2% greater chance of being right with option A, doesn't mean it's not impossible to have option B the correct answer 50 consecutive times.  Undecided
