For the original version of this "Fat Tony" anecdote, see page 124 of "The Black Swan: The Impact of the Highly Improbable", by Nassim Nicholas Taleb.

(More precisely, it's a thought experiment posed by Taleb, of bringing together two real people -- christened "Fat Tony" and "Dr. John" to discuss the odds of flipping a coin.)

Yes! Thank you for sharing this info. I had forgotten exactly where I had read of this anecdote. Great book.
