ya its pretty much undeniable. i refreshed the page like 10 times and like 4 people showed up at least 4 times a piece. one is my brother who has been in india for 2 months so it would make sense that he facebook hored me. does this work for anyone else?
think about the probability of any one person randomly showing up. its tiny. now square that, you have the probablity of someone showing up two consecutive times. i got someone to show up four consecutive times, and i only refreshed my page 10 times
The probability of one person randomly showing up once out of 10 times is the same as that of someone coming up 4 times in a row out of 10 times.
For example, winning the lottery with the numbers 123456 is equally as unlikely as winning with 597831 or any other random combination.
Just because something is unlikely doesnt mean it needs a special explanation.
i think he's pointing out the part where you said your probability of winning the lottery once is the same as your probability of winning it four times in a row. you know, the part where you said seeing one person once is the same as seeing one person four times in a row.
you are mentally retarded. the probabability of someone showing up once out of 10 times if you have 100 friends is 1/10th. the probability of him showing up 4 times in a row is
.01^4 x .99^6 x 7
1 in 100 of a shot of being there, then to the 4th, because they have to be in a row. then theres 6 spots left (assuming he shows up 4 and only 4 times) out of the 10, but 99 more people, so its 99^6. then x7 because the 4 in a row could take place throughout the first 4, 2-5, 3-6, etc etc. yeah, im really good at probability and all the nPr and nCr shit
