Another way to say it is: The location of a macroscopic object is only a little bit random, and the probability of tunneling is very very small.

Is that correct?

For example, the probability of a baseball tunneling to a location 1 meter away is not exactly zero, but it is very close to zero.

Is that correct?

Thanks, John

Macroscopic objects have a quite definite location, and do not tunnel to any appreciable extent.
