    Nope.

    I voted Tail/Head.

    Ended up with Head/Head.

    I guess I won't be working for Miss Cleo anytime soon.

    You forget two other small but possible outcomes.

    The larger and very real outcome of losing the coin.

    The second and very small probable of the coin landing on it's edge.

    There´s even the possibility that the coin vanishes in the air...

    or that it reaches escape velocity, which amounts to the same thing.
    Everything I need to know I learned through Googling.

    Are we supposed to vote before we flip or after?

    I flipped heads/heads

    I voted first. Otherwise we'd all be Miss Cleo.

    You also forgot the possibility of the coin spontaneously separating into three coins while in the air! For shame

    Then there's the high probability, depending on one's environment, of flipping the coin into the air and someone else grabbing it before it lands. Said coin will typically come to rest in a vending machine.
