Does anyone agree with these statements?

    I have heard many people say this before and I was wondering from a scientific perspective if you guys think its true

    "Nothing is impossible, just improbable"

    Also if you were to agree with that then would you agree with this?

    "Given an infinite amount of time, every possible outcome will occur"

    What do you guys think?

    It shouldn't be too hard for you to figure out counter-examples to these statements on your own.

    Nope. My Back button will never travel beyond the speed of light.

    But it will be pretty fast.
