    I'm talking about odds in your daily life -
    not really "gambling" odds......
    But I'll give two examples of two things that constantly pop up -
    and the seemingly lack of luck i have with them.
    #1.....You're heading to your car door or home front door ---
    of course, you're hands are completely full w/ groceries ( or stuff )
    You reach for those damn keys, in your pocket ---
    I'd say only 25% of the time, those keys are in a pocket I can reach (without
    having to shift/put down my stuff ! )
    Maybe, my right hand gets free.......but DAMN !!!...if those keys aren't
    in my left hand side pocket !!!......where I can't reach them !.:grrr:
    I'd say one outta four times = I get those keys NO PROBLEM.
    What should be my odds on this ?......50 - 50 ?
    #2..........The vacuum wall plug.
    Geez !......if I don't have the worst luck with this !
    One prong is wider than the other ( one being a "ground" or something ?)
    It only fits in the wall socket ONE WAY.
    And of course, I'm usually, scrunching down behind/under the sofa/ desk trying to reach the socket.
    So, I've got a 50 -50 chance to plug that thing in - and get it right.
    Damn, if I only get it plugged in the first time = maybe, 25% again ( one in four times !):rolleyes2:
    Just some silly crap ( odds ) I think about while not in Vegas gambling !
    How 'bout you ?

    I get all the way out to my Jeep and realize I don't have my phone. Sometimes I get a mile or so and have to turn around. I'm debating with myself the whole time about turning around. "But what if there is an EMERGENCY!!!" always wins.

    Turning on the front burner on the electric range when I meant to turn on the rear or vice versa. "Why won't this effing pan get HOT!!!" Oh, okay dumbass.

    Plugging in a USB. It is a 50/50 proposition and I am wrong 95% of the time!
