Thanksgiving Probability Problem

It approaches 1 as more people approach the buffet.

Unlike a previous Thanksgiving with the Family comic, I didn't try to squeeze everyone into this "extended" family gathering. However, Thanksgivings are big affairs. Now that the torch has passed from mother to daughter (who is married, so nee Keegan), there are more guests with nieces and nephews and assorted relatives who are alone for the holiday because their immediate families no longer live around here.

Yeah, there are a lot of complaints, and sometimes it gets a little heated -- the oven has been on all day, after all -- it's still family. They're the only ones you have. And when they're gone, they're gone.

Come back often for more funny math and geeky comics.
