3. What are the chances of someone unboxing two unusuals in a row?
 alpha___omega5 years ago#1 I'm terrible with complicated probability, but if there was a 1/100 chance of unboxing an unusual, there would be a 1/100 chance of unboxing an unusual straight after, giving a 1/10,000 chance of two unusuals in a row. But also they could get an unusual before, which just confuses things for me. Anyway, I'm sure it's possible, do you think/have heard of anyone who has done this?

Just taking singular events as they are is much simpler.And there is always that 50/50 yes/no situation.
