I wrote a Python program to calculate the expected number of flips through 100 flips. With
633825300114114700748347035945 / 633825300114114700748351602688
of the pdf accounted for, the expected value is
475678132457662109973083628357 /
= 6.00390211463 flips.

After 1000 flips, the change to the expected value doesn't show up in the 11 digits to the right of the decimal point.
