Probability

My parents were just telling me about miraculously bumping into a close friend of theirs from church while out and about seventy-five miles from home.

So we’re all walking that road, it seems, crossing paths, thinking to ourselves, “What is the chance of that?”

So much for those reflections a year ago, thinking it impossible that my path would ever again cross with people I once knew. Given the UK population is now above sixty million, I decided that was highly improbable.

But of course, in the intervening period that hypothesis has been shown to be completely false. What’s the probability of that?
