Say I roll a die, given the specific condition that I get four eights consecutively such as

"8888",

the same probability as if I give the specific condition that I get another specific non-consecutive number such as?

"0248"

OR

Say I flip a quarter. Would the probability that I get HHHH in a row, the same as if I specify beforehand to get, say, HTHH?
