Is there something wrong with the shuffle feature, or might the songs be playing randomly? You have 100 dimes, and I have 99 pennies. At the same time, we will toss our coins in the air and let them fall on the floor. Then we meticulously count the outcomes of our tosses. You win if you show more heads than I do.
