Lets say u flip a coin 100 times and a 100times it comes up heads that haves no effect on that the next time u flip the coin its still 50/50 that heads comes up.
Or am i an idiot?


This is true for each individual toss. But the odds of 5 heads in a row is not 50/50. Nor is a sequence of HTTHH.
You are absolutely right, but it's different from the initial question. Future results are not dependent on previous flips, but if we make the prediction beforehand about many flips than we take those many flips all into account.
Perform this experiment: flip a coin 5 times 100 times (500 flips). If even close to 50 of them are a set of 5 heads, I will give you all 500 coins you flipped .
