Not sure if this really a math issue, I think it is, but I was just wondering about something.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

If given an unlimited amount of time, do you think constantly flipping a coin would at some point result in flipping 1,000,000 consecutive heads...or tails?

Obviously it could never happen in a single lifetime, or even the lifetime of the planet for all we know. But is it safe to conclude that if given an unlimited amount of time, it not only could happen, but will happen?
