What I was trying to get at was that for a positive integer n,
where you have a probability of 1/n of success and n trials,
if n -> oo, the probabilty of getting one or more successes
approaches 1-(1/e) =~ 63% (not 100% as your drunk friend was
implying).
So for you RPGers out there, if I roll percentile dice 100 times,
there is about a 63% chance of rolling double zeros. If I roll the
same dice 1000 times, there is over a 99.996% chance of double zeros.
But I'd have to roll them an infinite number of times to get a 100%
chance.
