Huh, I hadn't even thought about that sort of possibility (malice or ignorance). I was wondering basically about how, mathematically speaking, such a low ratio of successes to attempts could come about.

I'm not sure how I could achieve that kind of ratio, even if I set out to do it on purpose. The laws of probability would seem to preclude it, and how would I know beforehand which exponents to avoid?
