Lucas Montgomery February 7, 2008 Philosophy 1000 Journal #2 A Pair of Fuzzy Dice Good and Evil. In class we discussed several different aspects of each, including origin and purpose, but what if it is nothing more than odds. We know, with absolute certainty, that if I flip a quarter a billion times, I am going to get a head to tails ratio of 1:1. So can’t this also be true for Good and Evil? A lengthy example: A famous clichéd question of our generation runs, “Why do bad things happen to good people?” So, you sit down at your computer a couple dozen times today to go on the internet. Let’s say the internet is down during one of your attempts to check your mail. At the end of the day, if someone asked you how many times the internet didn’t work for you, the frustration of that one experience makes that moment relatively easy to recall. Yet, when asked how many times it worked, you would probably have to think about it. I can’t tell you how many times I logged in flawlessly today, but I’ll remember the times it doesn’t work.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
