The relative frequency of successes is simulated for 1,000,000 trials, and is plotted against a log scale for the number of trials. As the number of trials increases the relative frequency is observed to remain within the funnel-shaped region described by the law of the iterated logarithm, and only in rare cases will it land outside the funnel.
