Heads or Tails? Does it matter which one you pick?

Coin tosses may not be a 50-50 proposition, according to this article:

The Coin Flip: A Fundamentally Unfair Proposition?

http://www.codingthewheel.com/archives/ ... roposition

Here`s a small excerpt from the article:

"The 50-50 proposition is actually more of a 51-49 proposition, if not worse. The sacred coin flip exhibits (at minimum) a whopping 1% bias, and possibly much more. 1% may not sound like a lot, but it's more than the typical casino edge in a game of blackjack or slots. What's more, you can take advantage of this little-known fact to give yourself an edge in all future coin-flip battles."

Is there nothing absolutely fair in this whole wide world???
