Unless the RuritanIan Mint, e.g., should design one coin, intentionally or other, to fall more often on one side...

Good question!

In what measure do Mints give importance to the question of Heads-or-tails equilibrium in their coin design?

He later revealed in another video the "trick" was he filmed himself flipping the coin for 9 hours before getting 10 heads in a row. So the trick was just filming nonstop until he eventually got a 10 head streak.



There's a scene in Spider-Man (the 2002 movie) where Mary Jane slips in the high school cafeteria, sending her lunch items flying through the air. Peter Parker uses a cafeteria lunch tray to catch the airborne food items.

Apparently the scene was filmed without the use of digital CGI special effects. They did it the old fashioned way. It took actor Tobey Maguire 156 attempts over 16 hours to catch the items. Aside from the 16 hour day, the only "trick" the film crew used was super glue to attach the tray to Maguire's hand.

In Aliens 4 Sigourney Weaver (now a test tube alien human) is supposed to throw a basketball BACKWARDS WITHOUT LOOKING one handed from 50 feet before the net and its a perfect shot.

They planned to do some cgi on the shot and on the first take, Sigourney weaver ACTUALLY MAKES THE SHOT.

The actor in the scene nearly ruined it. He was so shocked he dropped character. The basketball goes out of frame and then comes back down sadly. They never thought she could actually do it

You think that's amazing, well, Evil Knievel broke 433 bones in his lifetime not getting something just right the first time! Yeah, so there.
Quasimodo? Does that name ring a bell?
