It's all down to the toss of a coin….
MJK: So Dawn, would you want to have your own kids someday?
Dawn: 3, 3 boys.
MJK: No girls?
Dawn: I think I would want to avoid conflict. If I had girls then could you imagine how things would go when they wanted to bring round their first boyfriends. I think they’d have trouble keeping their eyes off me, you’ve seen how men act around me. Look at Jonti, he had to go, I think we all know the real reason for that. If you’d have seen my mom, God rest her sole, on her death bed then you wouldn’t have thought she was a day over 40 and she was 73. Some women just don’t age they just get better with time like a nice bottle of wine or a well hung game bird. I’m thinking Collins, Fonda these women just don’t age, …Isla St Claire.
MJK: But how would you ensure you had 3 boys isn’t the probability of that a half cubed, so one in eight.
Dawn: Half a cube, yeah well that’s not a bad probability but that isn’t enough for me, you see. Positive mental attitude, concentration an extra sense, whatever you want to call I would just will things to go my way. I would will myself to have 3 boys.
MJK: You would will it? Isn’t it just a random chance like a coin toss?
Dawn: Give me a coin Michael. I will show you what will can do, coin tosses aren’t random if I will them not to be.
MICHAEL HANDS DAWN A COIN
Dawn: I’ll prove it to you. Let’s say heads for girls because girls use their heads and tails for boys because …well you know.
MJK: So you are going to toss three tails using just your will.
Dawn: Using just my will.
DAWN TOSSES THE COIN IT HITS MJK IN THE EYE
Dawn: God I’m sorry Michael are you alright?
MJK: Yeah, I’ll be fine I managed to close my eye lid just in time.
Dawn: Well what was that one then? The coin?
MJK: Oh, erm hang on it’s on the floor here. It was a girl a head.
Dawn: Well we can’t count that because your eye you know affected it. Let’s have another go.
DAWN TOSSES THE COIN AGAIN AND GETS MJK TO LOOK
Dawn: What’s that?
Dawn: What’s that?
Dawn: Oh flippin heck, right one last go and this time I’m going to really concentrate.
MJK: You are currently mother to 106 girls are you sure you want to risk it?
DAWN FINALLY TOSSES A TAIL
Dawn: (LOOKING REALLY PLEASED WITH HERSELF) Yes, yes, see it is possible if you really concentrate I just wasn’t concentrating the other times. Science can’t and never will be able to explain how this stuff works but I feel that we have proved today that it does.
