Ok, I’m sure we’ve all used a coin to settle a difference at one time or another- with one side being ‘heads’ and the other side being ‘tails.’ This heads/tails thing suggests that flipping a coin results in 50% chance heads, 50% chance tails on each toss. But all coins have more than 2 sides, right? Take a U.S. quarter for example, it has Mr. Washington on one side and some other picture on the reverse side (eagle, state, etc). But a quarter also has a side lined with ridges. So this would make every toss not a choice between heads or tails, but of heads, tails and guts (well, maybe it could be called something different). So this would make every toss not a 50/50 chance, but more of a 49.5/49.5/1% thing. Am I making sense? Has anyone’s toss ended on this third side?
