Wrong course

When the skip­per of an Ice­landic trawler ac­ci­den­tally rammed English­man Jim Hughes’s yacht, he caused $30,000 worth of dam­age. Ex­actly a year and a day be­fore, re­ported the Lon­don Times, the skip­per, Eriker Olaf­s­son, had hit the same boat, caus­ing $40,000 in dam­age. What are the odds of this hap­pen­ing twice? Pretty good, since Olaf­s­son pur­posely steered to­ward Hughes to apol­o­gize for the pre­vi­ous year’s col­li­sion.
