Not true. While you have correctly stated the number of possible outcomes, it is just as likely to happen in the next minute as in a billion years.

I'm off work this morning waiting for pest control (mice.........again).  I'm now bored so I'm posing trivial facts questions from this thread to Alexa (Amazon Echo) and she's having the temerity to disagree with some of them! :laugh:

I've just upgraded VMWare Fusion on my Mac from 7.1.3 to 8.5.  I got fed up with the crashes because the older version didn't like the newer Mac OS.

On that subject, I discovered yesterday that my car's maximum volume setting is 45.  All along the Watchtower by Jimi Hendrix came on the radio and it deserved it.

My amp goes up to 150, so ner.

Admission: I've never taken it over 50, because that's damn loud... and I like not being killed by my neighbours.

I'm a Radio 4 Today Progamme myself; not necessarily less annoying but never the same annoying day after day.

I've just had a steak at a Wetherspoons (The Shakespeare's Head, Holborn) that would put many a "high class" restaurant to shame. Cooked and, importantly, seasoned to perfection.

Say math.

Now say bath

And that's all the evidence you need to prove that southerners are wrong.

My headphones go louder than my 8 year old, daughter, so when she screws up her Lego and screams, all I hear is Jimi Hendrix, The wind screams Mary, or anybody else, I don't hear it. 4Qn Lego

is that Swimming Pool, Or Baths, however you pronounce it. (For Yorkies it's that once a year thing when you immerse yourself in clean canal water and use soap), my Southern born daughter calls them baths, my Southern (Jamaican) Born Ex calls them pools.

Swimming Pool / Swimming Baths

Gotta love these Flat Earthers on YT. Read this total debunking of Round Earth thinking: If we are on a spinning rock, why isn't the background in your photos blurry?

And while we're at it, them Yanks need to learn how to pronounce "schedule".

Maybe they should all go back to school....oh, wait a minute.
