As I was explaining (complaining?) to the older son about the odds of some particular favorable event happening, the younger son, who was playing a video game and didn’t even bother looking up from the computer, piped up with this little gem:
You know, he’s a smart kid. If Han Solo hadn’t attempted to outrun the Empire, the most likely outcome would’ve been capture. Of course, I suppose he didn’t see the getting encased in carbonite thing as a potential outcome.
Fortunately, I don’t anticipate that any outcome will result in carbonite encasement regardless of the success or failure of my attempts.
