You have a standard pack of 52 playing cards. You then shuffle them and begin to draw out cards until you have three of a kind. What is the most likely number of cards drawn when this happens?
You then shuffle another pack of 52 playing cards into the pile. What happens to the expected number of cards now? (i.e. does it double / halve / stay the same?)
I was going to use that title last time but I forgot.
I can't see me using the phrase anywhere else so it might as well go here.
It was topical and funny when I thought of it.
