Statistics Used in Real Life

Bob is hungry. All Bob has in his kitchen is a box of chewy bars. Bob is a big guy, so he's going to want two chewy bars.

Each box of chewy bars has 48 bars in it, equally of 6 different flavors. Bob doesn't have any preference on flavor, but would like some variety. What is the likelyhood that, at random, Bob will pull out two chewy bars of the same flavor?


ANSWER: ONE HUNDRED FREAKIN PERCENT! I HATE YOU, CHEWY BARS! WHY CAN'T I EVER JUST PICK TWO DIFFERENT FLAVORS WHEN I WANT A SNACK?!? HUH?!? HUH?!?
