A 7% probability versus 10% probability may be bad news, but it's more than made up for by the increased number of red beans.

The comedic timing was awesome! It just broke me into the giggles. They keep sneaking out. I can't stop. I'll be laughing for weeks about this.

I'm pretty sure giggling for a week is a perfectly normal side effect of attaining enlightenment as to how the rest of the planet thinks about probability. Be sure to apply the topical anti-existentialism cream once a day.
