Percy Diaconis did a calculation that showed that 51% of coins tossed would land with the same side facing up as when it started. It would be great if we could pull together enough coin tosses (we are talking 100,000 to 1,000,000 here) to show this empirically as well. Please flip a coin, record your result, and share this post.

How did it land?

A little (almost unnamed) gem from my favourite counter tenor Andreas Scholl.
