INTERLUDE: A little mathematics problem

A project log for The Grimoire Macropad

A macropad build that is probably more trouble than it is worth.

You begin with a field of four options--A, B, C, D. 

You pick one--let's say C. 

You randomly pick 23 options out of the field of four. 

Of the 23 random selections, how many do you expect to be C?

You would think the answer is "Roughly 25%". However, that is because you haven't taken into account the ridiculously small size of Neopixels. They clearly are small enough that they have begun obeying the rules of quantum mechanics, because of the 23 of the blasted, nearly microscopic little bastards I soldered on yesterday, not one--NOT A GODDAMN ONE--is on correctly.

So I have to remove every one of them and re-solder them on.
