How many times do you think you will have to roll the die? Let’s do the math: you have a 1/120 chance of rolling the die only once, a 119/120 × 1/120 chance of rolling it twice, and so on. So a single roll is the most likely outcome, any other number of rolls will happen less often. Yet, a 1/120 chance is not even 1%. Furthermore, in this case, “most likely” is actually pretty unlikely.” https://www.lesswrong.com/…/most-likely-is-not-likely
