How to use "Hairbreadth" in context?

When it comes to making a decision, many of us rely on a basic understanding of probabilities. Probability is the likelihood of something happening in a given situation and is calculated by dividing the number of possible outcomes by the number of opportunities. In the context of making decisions, those chances happen everyday through probabilities associated with the toss of a coin, the roll of the dice, and other similar activities.

However, some situations present unique probabilities that are difficult to determine. A classic example is when you are on a tightrope, balancing on a fence, or sailing on a turbulent ocean.
