Putting on shirts :The Post

Grab a T-shirt out of your dresser, or maybe your closet if your a freak who hangs T-shirts.

Assuming the selected shirt is not inside out you have 2 possible ways of putting the shirt on your body.

Those 2 ways are as follows.

(Backwards) which sucks because it chokes you and is uncomfortable and in most cases looks silly.

(The correct way) The shirt glides over your head and slips firmly into place, nice and clean and you are good to go.

Now, seeing as how there are two possible ways to put on a shirt that gives us a variable of 50/50, 1 out of 2, 50%, 1/2 ect ect.


Can someone explain to me how in the fuck.....i manage to get a shirt, pull the dam thing over my head and its on backwards far more than the mathematically logical 50% average.

What unseen hand is causing this? Its like, 8 out of 10 dam times it ends up backwards. WHY IS THIS HAPPENING?!!??!?!!? More importantly, why is it happening to me?!

The math is just not working out and its starting to freak me out!

It's the same reason why we always attempt plug USB cables the wrong way the first time.

I have assessed your dilemma my 8 yr old does the same thing you never grew out of it. Seriously I correct his shirts 3 to 5 days a week. Maybe your old man was jerk not sure.

Your understanding of statistical probabilities is insufficient for the task at hand.

Query: If I flip a coin nine times and get heads every time, what is the statistical probability on the tenth toss that it will show tails? 50%. Regardless of the prior outcomes, your probability will still be 50% every time.

When you grab the shirt, you have a 50% chance of putting it on wrong. EVERY TIME. Even if you do it wrong nine times in a row, and figure you have to get it right next, you still have a 50% chance on the tenth try of doing it wrong.

Also, other factors may affect the outcome. Like booze.

Your sample size is too small, unlike me who has an enormous sample size.
