Why Probability is More of an Art than a Science

There are two sides to every coin.

Unless it turns out you’re holding a die, in which case there can be any number of sides.

A good guess is whatever the highest number or biggest collection of dots is.  In typical cases, that’s how many sides there are.

Question for pondering: is a coin a two-side die?

Followup:  is a sphere a one-sided coin?
