In the real universe is there such thing as a probability that isn't 100% or 0%?

Probability is a mathematical construct and thus not part of the real world.

Everything in the known universe is exactly 50/50.

It either happens, or it doesn't.

It seems everything should be 50/50, though an "effective" (subjective) odd could be more or less, but never 0% (or 100%, the complement).
However, if I flipped a coin a hundred times and it turned heads all times, I might give it better odds of flipping heads again. But then I doubt anyone has honestly flipped a hundred heads.

According to the Copenhagen interpretation, yes. Most modern theories consider the universe to be truly non-deterministic, and there are some events that are truly random and probabilistic.

However, there ARE alternate theories, which posit that there may be some hidden variable which, if observed, would allow these events to be predicted with 100% certainty. If valid, the universe would indeed be deterministic.

So in short, we don't actually know.

So... it is a 50% chance for either? ;)

If I toss a coin in the air there is a 100% chance it will not stay in the air.

There is a 0% chance OP will upload his mind to a computer and live on the internet.

Checkmate.

what if suddenly a nuke blew up under your house and launched the coin into orbit? bet you'd feel pretty dumb then.

There is a 100% probability that there is or isn't a 100% probability in the real world, therefore there is.

Is it? Is anything 100 or 0 percent possible? Nothing is certain or uncertain...

Wow... Philosophy of Mathematics has fucked me.

Yes.

Probability is a means of reasoning with uncertainty. It describes the chance of an as yet unobserved event occurring. You can't have a 0 or 100% probability as those values denote certainty, which is not attainable.

Also 0.999... does not equal 1
