Does anyone ever actually just "flip a coin" to help them make an important decision? I know I've been tempted to in the past, but I don't anyone who's ever actually done it.
Not quite, but I knew someone who flipped a coin to help
decide whether to accept a marriage proposal or not
In reality, she couldn't decide, so another friend suggested that she pick "Heads, yes, tails, no" and flip a coin. The logic was that if she felt disappointed by the result she would gain insight into her feelings.
