Q: Why do weird things happen so much?
Also (mathematically speaking), although the chance of any one particular unlikely event is unlikely (because it’s unlikely), there are a very large number of unlikely events that could happen. Amazing!”Everyday you’re exposed to billions of Weird things (I’m defining “Weird” as 1 in a million) that could happen. Say you notice N things everyday that have the potential to be Weird. Which means that every time you look at about 700,000 things you’ll have a 50% chance of seeing something Weird (which isn’t that bad, can you see 1,000 things now?). If you restrict you attention only to “big” Weird things, then you’ll find yourself pretty disappointed, and it’s because there aren’t a lot of big things that happen day-to-day.
