Nailing the coin toss.

I have an admittedly very geeky side. I also enjoy a bit of gambling.

Someone pointed me to a cool blog today where they have done a summary of a 31-page document titled "Dynamical Bias in the Coin Toss", which shows how coin tosses are not completely random. Have a read here.

This reminds me of a rather successful night a few years ago with the guys from NewAd at Chambar, where I took a lot of money off of people based on coin spinning. If anyone that lost money to me that night is reading this - I promise I was not aware of these facts before today.
