Germany was frequently bombing Russia during World War
II. Every time the air raid siren sounded, people rushed to
the nearest air raid bomb shelter. One person who never
took shelter was a professor of statistics. He argued that
there are seven million people in Russia and the probability
of a bomb actually dropping on him was very small. Then
suddenly one day when the air raid siren was sounded the
professor rushed to the air raid shelter along with his
neighbours from the building.
"Lost your nerver professor ?"asked one of his aquaitances.
" NO" said the professor " but I have realized that the bombs
do not observe the laws of probability. There were seven
million people and one elephant in Russia . Yesterday they
got the elephant."
