Since nobody was brave enough to attack my 'bum' question, here is one that sounds more 'mathy'...

Suppose you have a box with a square base area of 16 square inches. There is a circle drawn inside the base which shares the same center point. The diameter of this circle is 2 inches. Lastly, assume that you have a line segment with length of 1 inch which will randomly appear within the base of the box. What is the probability that this line segment will not intersect the circle?
