Are probabilities static
(Wait) First let me apologize for my ignorance, what i mean is i am not even sure if i am wording the question properly and my math is, um.. ..average at best.
Second let me apologize for repeating a thread, or placing it in the wrong place, there are so many.
Lastly let me apologize for any social or grammatical errors not covered in the first 2 apologies.

Ok, I wanted to know if probabilities can increase or decrease over time. Assuming i am using an honest 4 sided dice. If i roll it once and it results in a 1, will rolling the same dice again with no environmental changes result in the same probability of yielding a 1. And then if i roll it again, and so-on and so-on, will the probability of rolling a 1 stay the same every time.

What is a four sided die?
I have seen that three times lately.
But I have no idea what it means.

It is shaped like a pyramid, i use it in Dungeons and Dragons. (Giggle)

The discussion i was in started with a 4 sided die, but i would have used it in my question regardless because the beginning math was easy for me, you know 25% and whatnot.(Thinking)
