|Imagine two scenarios : You have to travel 300 miles by train. There are two trains - 1 requires 4 hours to arrive at your destination (the slow train), and the other requires just 20 minutes to arrive at your destination (the fast train).|
However, the slow train ALWAYS requires 4 hours, never less, never more and is 100% reliable. The fast train however, 1% of the time does not arrive at all, but stops at some random town somewhere in between. How to get from the random town to your destination or back to the start is not known to you, but it is possible.
You want to travel home from a conference. Which of the two trains do you take?
