->Sergeant Colon looked wretched. "''Weeell'', what if it's not a million-to-one chance?" he said. \\
Nobby stared at him.\\
"What d'you mean?" he said.\\
"Well, all ''right'', last desperate million-to-one chances always work, right, no problem, but...well, it's pretty wossname, specific. I mean, isn't it?"\\
"You tell me," said Nobby.\\
"What if it's just a thousand-to-one chance?" said Colon agonizedly.\\
"Anyone ever heard of a thousand-to-one shot coming up?"\\
Carrot looked up. "Don't be daft, Sergeant," he said. "No one ever saw a thousand-to-one chance come up. The odds against it are—" his lips moved—"millions to one."\\
"Yeah. Millions," agreed Nobby.\\
"So it'd only work if it's your actual million-to-one chance," said the sergeant.\\
"I suppose that's right," said Nobby.\\
"So 999,943-to-one, for example—" Colon began.\\
Carrot shook his head. "Wouldn't have a hope. No one ever said, 'It's a 999,943-to-one chance but it just might work.'"

->'''Nia''': The likelihood of that is infinitely close to zero.\\
'''Simon''': Maybe, but it isn't zero. As far as I'm concerned, that makes it the same as a 100% chance.
