One of life's little mysterys

Why is it that when you're playing Minesweeper and you've cleared the board except for two spaces (one of which is a mine and one of which is not) and you should have a 50/50 chance of winning, that at least four times out of five you select the mine?

I've even tried to out-guess myself by picking the OPPOSITE of my gut instinct (and that's one big instinct, let me tell you) with no perceivable improvement.

I blame the Carlyle Group and the Trilateral Commission.

Oh, and Sandy Berger's pants.
