What Does Probability Mean in Your Profession?

Here are some drawings about the meaning of probability in various professions.

The one for philosophy is fantastic! Several of the others are also funny.

The so-called "actual meaning" among the drawings is not correct: "definitely" requires a probability of exactly 1, and "definitely not" requires a probability of exactly 0.

I would have loved to have seen a mathematical one, as then we would need to use "almost always", epsilons, and measures.
