Did you know - the chance of a coin landing heads-up is not 50-50?

When you flip a coin, physics, not probability, determines how it will land. Mathematician Persi Dianconis found that a coin is slightly more likely to land on the face that was up when you flipped it.

The way a coin lands in not 'randem', it easy, with a little practice, to manipulate your coin flip so that it lands the way you want it. What's more, if you're spinning a coin, it's more likely to land tails up, since the heads side weighs slightly more.
