Thom's Law of Probability

"In any given situation in which you have a 50/50 CHANCE of getting something RIGHT or not, you will get it WRONG 80% of the time..."   ~   TEDDY: *Holding several 2x4's up to be scanned at the checkout* "I don't suppose you have a BARCODE sticker down there?"   ALLISON: "Nope. Other side..."

Guess it's more of a modifier, really...

And I'm sure there's an actual psychological phenomenon for why it seems like this is the case that I could look up the name for, but I'm to lazy to try to find that right now that would take all of the magic out of it!..
