Sorry if rolling with the "Go home, you're drunk" meme being invoked caused offense, though.

Drink it down, laugh it off,
Avoid the drama, take chances,
And never have regrets
Because at one point everything you did
Was exactly what you wanted.
I happen to have two coins. Before I flip either, what's the probability they will turn up the same way? 50%.
Probability they will both flip to heads is .50 x .50. Probability they will both flip to tails is also .50 x .50. Each probability is .25, both probabilities combined is .50.
Essentially you have four conditions:
1. Coin A is heads and coin B is tails .25
2. Coin A is tails and coin B is heads .25
3. Coin A is heads and coin B is heads. .25
4. Coin A is tails and coin B is tails. .25
So you end up with 50% probability of one of each, and 50% probability of two of one.
