Before a final time elapse
There will have been at least two gaps

During gaps, folks time they're biding
While a dozen halt their sliding

When a certain red line is crossed
It means that you may have just lost

A masked man sometimes saves the day
Stopping projectiles aimed his way

The appearance of a red light
Brings both vexation and delight

What am I?

There is a box in which distinct numbered balls have been kept. You have to pick two balls randomly from the lot.

If someone is offering you a 2 to 1 odds that the numbers will be relatively prime, for example
If the balls you picked had the numbers 6 and 13, you lose \$1.
If the balls you picked had the numbers 5 and 25, you win \$2.

Will you accept that bet?

I hover out there in darkness unseen.
I will shred things to pieces 'till they're just smithereens.
I might serve as a gateway to places unspoken,
Yet I'm sealed off to man, forever unbroken.
I twist and distort, only darkness escapes,
I destroy all I find
Whatever I take.
