the panthers are a legendary 012 on coin flips this year. 013 if you count the draft one against miami. so they want us fans to decide which side they should call for!
i'm going tails. _________________

Let's just say I flip a coin 13 times straight and lose every time. What is the probability of losing the coin toss 13 straight times?
0.012%. There is a 0.012% chance of us losing 13 straight coin tosses. It's that kind of season guys _________________

That's why I bought a powerball ticket. I figured if this could happen anything could.
And I won $4!!! _________________

Actually it's even worse.
(.5^13) = .00012%
Roughly
This whole season is statistically improbable so I'm really not surprised. _________________ SuperCam Career stat track.

My sources tell me that we have about a 5050 chance of picking this correctly for the team.

Teams have broken slumps against the Chiefs. This seems like the next one. _________________ [quote="aceinthehouse"]I personally do NOT think Lewis is the Greatest MLBer ever.

You don't multiply by 100 at the end to get the percentage?
Whatever, that's not important. What's really important is that we ticked off some higher power and we need to appease him/her. _________________

The .5 is the percentage.
Reads as 50%...so you don't need to do it a second time
But you're absolutely right, it isn't that important. What is important is proving wrong the universe and anyone, whether a higher power or the slum land lord down the street, that Carolina CAN go 016 in coin flips! _________________

finally!
i found the reason why we are not winning games
we are losing every coin toss, so we not putting our offense on the field first, this is clearly giving the edge to the opponents
this is a relief, once we focus on the coin toss (like we are now) and find a way to actually win the coin toss battle, we are contenders, watch out! _________________
