Not proof of FRAUD?
It's DOCUMENTED in the Election 2004 Incident Database!

The probability P that at least 86 votes would switch to Bush is
P = Prob(86)+ Prob (87)+ Prob(88).

Prob(86)= 1.23689E-23 = BINOMDIST(86,88,0.5,FALSE)
Prob(87)= 2.84343E-25 = BINOMDIST(87,88,0.5,FALSE)
Prob(88)= 3.23117E-27 = BINOMDIST(88,88,0.5,FALSE)

P = Prob (86 or 87 or 88)= 0.00000000000000000000001266
or 1 in 79,010,724,999,066,700,000,000


How do you express a number that large?
Is there anything comparable, anywhere?
Are there that many stars in the universe?
Are there that many grains of sand on the Earth?
If you lined up that many atoms next to a ruler, how wide?

How long would it take to flip that many coins?

If you flip 1 coin a second, you would do
3600 in an hour,
86,400 in a day,
31,536,000 in a year.

It would take 2,505,413,654,206,830 (2505 trillion) years.

The earth is "only" 14 billion years old.
