Probability Stories

My favorite from Ben Orlin’s seven fables about probability.

Makes an important points about the counterintuitive nature of randomness–one that we see every day.

I’d love to add an extra fable to his collection–regression to the mean. Great article here on Daniel Kahneman’s work on the subject–detailed in his book, Thinking, Fast and Slow. Draft to come.
