What are the odds?
I found this quite hilarious.
Odds of being killed by lightning (per day) - 1 in 9 billion (2^33)
Odds of winning the top prize in a U.S. state lottery - 1 in 4 million (2^22)
Odds of winning the top prize in a US state lottery and being killed by lightning in the same day - 1 in 2^55
