don’t ask why it just came in my head
So you have a fair coin that you found on the ground,
or at least that’s what everyone says.
But on each of N times that you’ve tossed it around,
you see every flip has been heads.
For which value of N should you start to suspect
that the coin isn’t actually fair?
For which values of N can you firmly declare
that the tails side is not even there?

Very funny comment, lmao.
So does it really have a solution? :3
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Solomonoff%27s_theory_of_inductive_inference is one way of formalizing why seeing all-heads should be surprising compared to any of the other 2^n possible sequences of H/T.
