Over on Corny's blog, regular UD IDiot PaV (posting as Lino D'Ischia) gives a lesson in probability theory

 Quote If I roll a six-sided die 24 times, what is the probability that I will get a six? It's 24 x 1/6 = 4.0

A probability of 4.0

Comedy gold.

That's amazingly wrong in every dimension! At least one 6? Just one six?

P>1 was the icing on the CAEK, though.

PaV doubles down on the stupidity.

After his last error is pointed out to him, he 'corrects' it with

 Quote Here's your answer:The formula is:{1-[(5/6)^5N]} = 0.9351

where N apparently equals 3.

...all you can do is shake your head.
