What are the odds?

Here is a rundown on the odds of these “odd” things happening to you (approximately)  . . .
⇒ Being audited: 1 in 200 
⇒ Having twins: 1 in 250 (each pregnancy)
⇒ Catching a foul ball:  1 in 835
⇒ Living to 100: 1 in 1,000 
⇒ Being born on leap day (Feb. 29): 1 in 1,461
⇒ Getting struck by lightning: 1 in 3,000 (lifetime)
⇒ Finding a four-leaf clover: 1 in 10,000
⇒ Being killed by a shark: 1 in 3.7 million
⇒ Being killed in a plane crash: 1 in 1 million
⇒ Winning the lottery: 1 in 88 quadrillion (2018 US Mega Millions $1 billion jackpot)

So what your saying is I have a better chance of being hit by lightning than winning the lottery? Nice…
