What about a grabber after a big lottery win?

Eddie, my favorite questioner. No one could have predicted this one coming but I loved it enough to look into it...lol

There are two approaches to the answer to this question.

1) Are you grading mortality rate to your specific location? or
2) to the whole world daily population?

Using the whole world daily population (which might be more accurate due to calamities, etc.) the number is kind of astounding. .001 % (or one in a thousand every day)

Bums me out...I have the same chances of winning a pick 3 straight as I do of dying that day. M-a-a-n......gotta quit this game.

Sorry, Eddie; after reading the title, I thought this was another poll. Those stats are very specific concerning the odds of dying of a particular cause, but they don't give us the overall odds of dying. I've worked this out myself and, while I don't want to alarm anyone, I calculate the odds of dying of something, at some point during your lifetime, are nearly 100%!
I know, I know; I was as surprised as you are at this discovery, but I checked it several times, and the math is sound, so I'm satisfied that the above figure is an accurate one. Who knew???
