Full  prompt here

The 11th Possibility is the idea that, regardless of data to the contrary, something unexpected and outside the realm of ordinary thought is always potentially around the corner.

“A coin is flipped 10 times, and in each instance lands on either heads or tails.  But even after the normalcy displayed by the first 10 flips, the result of the next flip is still unknown.  The coin could turn into a bird and fly away.  The coin could land perfectly on its ridged edge.  The coin could dissolve upon landing.  It could defy gravity and remain stuck in the air.  This is the 11th Possibility.”

Ten times out of ten, he would have bent that foil case back and simply bitten into his pineapple tart. The 11th possibility was that the tart would shoot out of the case, describe a perfect parabola in the air and land, right side up, in his mug of coffee.

The text on that mug? Simply the icing on the 11th possibility cake!
