    Mistake is made at the 1:49 mark. The chances of guessing a random 4-digit pin code are 1 in 10,000, not 1 in 1,000. Ignore what I say there

    Welp, I need to address a mistake at the 1:41 mark. I meant to say 1 in 10,000 as the chances of guessing a random 4-digit pin code, not 1 in 1,000. Sorry about that one

      30 people in a room and there would be a 1 in 2 chance that any two people share a birthday not a 1 in 12. This is a well known statistical quirk

      I think the birthday one is also wrong. It's true that in a room with 30 ppl there is a 1 in 12 chance that 2 will share the same birthday, BUT theres much lower chance that one will share the same birthday as you.

    Did you know that the chances of dying in a roller coaster accident are 1 in 750 million? And your chances of getting hurt on a roller coaster are 1 in 24 million. So next time you are debating whether or not to get on a roller coaster, think about that, and go for it. You're gonna have lots of fun while staying completely safe

    Where is the point of listing things that are not completely random? The chances of me getting into Harvard are significantly higher than the ones of the author of this video, as I know the difference between probability and statistics.

    According to what I know, I am the only one in my middle school and their family that has simian line on both hands.
    *1% *chance in the world

    Plus. I have two clockwise hair whorls on my head.
    *5%* chance in the world

    And I have protruding ears.
    *5%* chance in the world

    So 1%x5%x5%=0.0025% and multiply that with world population as of 11/18 5:30pm , *I'm 1 out of 194521.*
