Things More Likely To Happen Than Winning The Powerball Jackpot

Because no one won the Powerball jackpot on Wednesday night, Saturday’s drawing will be for $700 million. But, there’s still barely a chance you’ll win. In fact, all of these things are way more likely.

• Becoming a movie star (1 in 1.5 million)

• Hitting a hole in one on consecutive par-three golf holes (1 in 156 million)

• Being struck by lightning in your lifetime (1 in 10,000) or in a given one-year period (1 in 1 million)

• Randomly picking the name of one specific female in the U.S. (1 in 157 million)

• Getting attacked by a shark (1 in 11.5 million) or drowning at the beach (1 in 2 million). Being killed by a shark though, isless likely than a lottery win.

• Being involved in a car-deer collision in Hawaii (1 in 6,267)

• Being killed by a mountain lion in California (1 in 36 million) or dying from SARSanywhere in the U.S. (1 in 100 million)

• Being crushed by a vending machine (1 in 112 million)

• Being killed by radiation from a nearby nuclear meltdown (1 in 10 million)

• Becoming the president of the United States (1 in 10 million)

• Giving birth to identical quadruplets (1 in 15 million)

• Dying from using a right-handed product incorrectly if you are left-handed (1 in 4.4 million)

• Picking a perfect NCAA March Madness bracket (1 in 13.5 million)

• Being canonized (1 in 20 million)

• Becoming an astronaut (1 in 12.1 million)

• Being killed by a venomous animal or plant (1 in 3.4 million)
