          Maybe this will be easier to really understand. If you spend $15,000 a year on tickets you can expect to win once every 10,000 years.

          Again, an unrecognizable stat.  How long is 10,000 years?  I'm thinking 100 is an eternity. 10,000? Long time.  If some one said I had a trillion dollars to spend over 100,000 years, my first question would be, how much does that give me for lunch today.

          Cheers

            Until recent years Britain considered a billion as 1,000,000,000,000 (our trillion.)

              "So, If I win does this mean I'm immune to sharks and their eating habits? What are the odds of a mega winner being eaten by a shark during a thunderstorm with hail the size of Chihuahua on the  waters edge  on the island of Manhattan?"
              HEY THERE  "D"
              The only sharks I know are the I.R.S.........and we can never ever be immune to their eating habits..

                I made a deal with Sharks.  They stay off the Freeway, I'll stay out of the Ocean.  So far, they have kept their word.
