Interesting post!

But: "Similarly, consider the six-sided die with four green faces and one red face."

I seem to be good at catching trivial mistakes.

I was going to reply that this is not obviously a mistake, since we might just be ignorant of what the other side is. Then I realized the guesses listed after suggest that the die has four red faces and one green face. Nice catch.
