This Week’s Prompt
You can control the probability of outcomes around you. When something will start, who will win, etc. You turn in a project to a teacher/professor/boss, changing the probability (to get an ‘A,’ to get the promotion, etc). When you get it back, there’s a note that says: “Don’t try your magic on me.”
