Woody's Legal Theory: The Law Of Probability

Now that the Superbowl's done and the improbable occurred, a review:
If you flip one coin enough (777 million?) times, probability suggests a pretty even split, heads v. tails (heads having a slight, .0000001 advantage). If however, you flip a universe full (those 777 million) of coins just once, literally everything, or anything, is possible. They could all come up heads, or all tails, or any possible combination in between.

People flip coins one at a time; Nature flips 'em all at once, all the time. Which indicates the laws of probability are physical, not cosmic...
Just sayin...
