I mean I know what probability is, but let's say you flip a coin 5 times and it's heads every time...then switch coins? that can't have any affect on it but what if you waited an hour after getting 5 consecutive heads and come back with those 5 heads in mind, you would probably pick tails. but if you had forgotten about it instead of remembering it, then you would say it's 50/50 again. so which one is "right"? is it 50/50 again or is it in favor of tails? or is it just an illusion?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
