was produced by the Winton programme for the public understanding of risk based in the Statistical Laboratory in the University of Cambridge. The aim was to help improve the way that uncertainty and risk are discussed in society, and show how probability and statistics can be both useful and entertaining.

Many of the animations were produced using Flash and will no longer work.

The first coincidence: In 1997 I was in Depew. While walking I found this old picture from 90 years ago at the time, in 1907. The picture looked familiar to me. When I went to my house the same picture was on my wall! The picture on my wall was a reproduction, but I had the original one in my hand! Here's the second coincidence: A few years ago, my neighbour went to my house and gave me an invitation to a birthday party. The next day, I attended the birthday party, and I realized that the house number was 789. But the next day, I was on TV then a news story about an expedition in 1228 aired! That was 789 years ago at the time! Then, I was driving and I saw a sign with 789 on it! When I got back, the TV showed a picture of a man born in 1789 on the 78th day at 9 am! And that man died 24,789 days later! 789 days after that, I moved to a new house! And its house number? 789.
