More on probabilities

This is in regards to the often-repeated saying "improbable events happen all the time" (even Dembski says that... which only serves to show that even people on "my" side can be idiots).

I just read something that was so apropos of this:

Heroic Law of Probabilities: One-in-a-million chances happen 9/10

(Look for it on this page, it makes more sense in context.)

That is just too great for words, I will keep quoting that "law" every time the subject comes up. I have to read that story, even though I'm not a fan of Marvel stuff. (Plus, the main character has a Romanian name. Yay :P)
