I always wanted to quit on a monday morning!

"...so are you all set for the telephonic interview?"
"yes, fire away!" who am i kidding?
"lets say you are an umpire in a cricket match.."
"ok.." this ought to be interesting!
"you have a baised coin, with the chances of Head coming up is two third and Tail's probability is 1/3..."
"ok.." OH NO! not probability, please...
"how do you decide the toss fairly?"
"interesting! give me a second..." well im screwed, there is no way i can answer that question.. how does the interviewer know i'm bad in propability? damn these psychics! good bye, interview..tata
"hello? are you there? ....do you have an answer?"
"yeah...i mean no, just a sec." come on think, tHInk, thiNk, ThInK....
"hello?"
"yes, so Head=2/3 and Tail=1/3 isn't it?" IDEA!
"yes"
"sir, we take an other coin with Tail=2/3 and Head=1/3, stick these coins together..not one over the other, but along side each other... like two zeros 'OO' close to each other, with both the Heads pointing in one directions and Tails in the other! Now we have equal probability for both the events! Now toss!"
"err...what?...this is not good...you have only one coin."
"oh i see!" no i dont see! whats wrong with this solution? cha.. nobody appreciates a creative answer these days!
"so? do you have an answer?"
"sorry, i dont know." my probability of getting this job just hit zero!

P.S: No, me don't own a Tata Safari Dicor. You can take the title literally!
