I absolutely so know my statistics. But try to get your head round the concept that it is not physically possible to flip any coin, with a "heavy" (eg. polonium) side, and a "light" (eg. Lithium) side, have free rotation around its axis, and yet get a biased result.Franklin said:This is incredibly sad. I don't think anyone of you has any experience in statistics. The odds of a coin landing heads 100 times is infinitely small and thus is most likely not fair.
This is an odds game. If a coin toss is so biased... the coin is most likely not fair. Thus the next toss will be heads.
To put this one into perspective: if we do a weighted sample of 101 the 100 tosses are enough to give a near 100% margin.
I laugh at everyone who simply can't grasp the theory behind it. Yes, it is possible that this coin is fair. But anyone who knows anything about probability realizes that the chance that this coin is indeed fair is infinitely small.
If this is what the supporters of Froome argue I can only shake my head.
If you know anything of probability, tossing a coin 100 times and getting 100 times head is a rather stark indicator of an unfair coin.
Way over your head, the coin is more tham likely not fair. The sample of 100 tosses is incredibly big.
100 straight heads, and I'll look for the star over Bethlehem and three wise men, but statistically as well as physically we're talking never-neverland here.
