Gambling, Luck and Toast[edit]

  1. When gambling, you get an early win which fools you into losing all your money.
  2. Toast falls messy side down.
  3. Scientists attempting to prove that toast falls messy side down will fail.
  4. Once I dropped a treacle tin lid. Rule 2 predicted it should fall messy side down. The lid fell, bounced and then spun like a coin settling with the messy side up. Once the spinning stopped, with perfect comedy timing, some elastic energy in the metal lid was released with a loud ping, neatly flipping it through 180 degrees, treacle side down. Sometimes the laws of nature mess with your head! And of course I was not filming it.
  5. If you are attempting to beat a geohashing record, as you get closer to success, reachable points become rarer than pure chance predicts.
  6. One day quantum inconvenience will be discovered but of course the hypothesis predicts ... see 3 above.
