How to use "Outside chance" in context?

One of the most interesting things to ponder is what would happen if the unlikely event happened. Suppose both of two dice are the same number, but one is treated as if it is a six and the other as if it is a three? In that case, the six would show up on the three die, resulting in a three being shown on the six die. This is what is called an outside chance. What that means is that the odds of the particular event happening are 1 in 6, or 3%.
