When You Ask a Question of the Magic 8-Ball What Are the Odds That You’ll Get a Positive Answer?
“OUTLOOK GOOD,” that you’ll get a positive answer when you ash a question of the Magic 8-Ball, as the ball itself might say.
There are 20 possible answers on the Magic 8-Ball, and half of them are to some degree positive.
Of the remaining 10, 5 are negative and 5 tell you to try again later.
The positives are OUTLOOK GOOD, YOU MAY RELY ON IT, MOST LIKELY, YES, YES DEFINITELY, IT IS CERTAIN, SIGNS POINT TO YES, WITHOUT A DOUBT, IT IS DECIDEDLY SO, and AS I SEE IT YES.
The negatives are OUTLOOK NOT SO GOOD, MY REPLY IS NO, DON’T COUNT ON IT, VERY DOUBTFUL, and MY SOURCES SAY NO.
Finally, the abstentions are ASK AGAIN LATER, CANNOT PREDICT NOW, BETTER NOT TELL YOU NOW, CONCENTRATE and ASK AGAIN, and REPLY HAZY, TRY AGAIN.
