If you flip 2 coins at the same time, is the probability of getting heads twice the same as flipping each coin individually?

    Yes. Either way, the probability is 1/4

    If I flipped one today and one tomorrow the chances of getting two heads would be exactly the same as flipping them together.

    It would be the same if I flipped one and YOU flipped the other.

    2 coins is 1/4 that you'd get 2 heads.

    yes. The coins do not have memory.

    Yes, P(2 Heads) = 1/2*1/2 = 1/4

    If you assume a "fair" toss (in statistical terms), then yes. In reality, it would depend on the way you toss them (for either case).

    The luck of the draw here, no matter how much logical math in play..
