Trifextra 41: What’s Happenin’

Andy Rooney created something called “The 50-50-90 rule: anytime you have a 50-50 chance of getting something right, there’s a 90% probability you’ll get it wrong.” We want you to give us your own probability equation. Use whichever numbers suit you, and make it about whatever you like, but give us something to think about. In 33 words, of course.

Sounds like Andy Rooney hung out with Yogi “90% of this game is half mental” Berra, who also inspires me once in a while.


We spend 99% of our time waiting for something to happen. During that 1% of time something happens, 1% is ‘it’ happening. The other 99% is us wondering what the hell just happened.
