|A dictionary "filled not with words, but with numbers -– the odds of everyday life." The Book of Odds "contains hundreds of thousands of Odds Statements, from the odds of being the only one to survive a plane crash, to the odds of having a heart attack, to the odds of having ever eaten cold pizza for breakfast. Book of Odds not only allows you to search for those odds that concern or interest you the most, but also to understand probability by comparing the odds of unfamiliar events to others you have personally experienced." Explore calibration pairs; comparison pairs; topical lists; time series; geographic distributions; views of Odds Statements in probability order, making it possible to calibrate and discover curious juxtapositions; and "Odds of Me," a list of Odds Statements that an individual visitor to the site has identified as personally applying to him- or herself; and much more.|
