What Are The Odds Of That
Did you hear about the baby that was born on 09/09/09? He was born at 9:09 and weighed 9 lbs and 9 ozs.
What are the odds of that?
Do you think 9 will be his lucky number?
I tried to figure out the probability of all of those nines coming together at one time...but then I remembered that I failed Statistics in college...twice! No help there.
I tried to Google it but I couldn't really figure out the question and ended up on some raunchy web site advertising 9 inch prosthetic devices.
If there are any mathematically inclined folks out there or if you know someone that is ask them about the nines. I'm sure someone knows the answer...
No help from me - interesting though.
