what does probability mean? In your example below, there must be an
infinity of worlds where Colin Powell is president and an infinity of worlds
where your 6-year old niece is president. Are you saying that the Colin
Powell infinity is bigger than the 6-year old niece infinity?

Yes, there are different sizes of infinity. For example, there are "more" integers than there are even numbers, even though there are an infinite number of both, and there is a 50% chance that a random integer is even. Cantor and all that.
