         i was at a marina and a freind and me were talking fishing, what else ?

the sky turned dark w/ clouds,w/out warning a bolt of lightning struck a utility pole about 10 yards away,

i felt the hair stand up on the back of my neck, we ran, i jumped in my truck, drove down to 7-11 to buy a ticket.

but no not even a small win. Unhappy

    He lived, he walked away with his life, so in essence he did win the lottery, the ultimate lottery.

      The problem was he wasn't getting eaten by a shark at the same time.  Todd called this one.  Big Smile

          No revelance to the lottery?  The story is in definite relation to the lottery. You have never heard someone say, "You have better a better chance of getting hit by lightning than winning the lottery."  OR, my new favorite by Todd in reference to the recent MM Jackpot while it was at 500 million, "the odds of getting hit by lightning while at the same time being eaten by a shark."

            I doubt he ever said the lightning quote, he is just fabricating his story to make headlines and apparently it worked. But it does indeed look like he has a better chance art getting struck, because I bet he did not get a dime back from MM.
