£250,000 would do me.  I'd turn that into much larger amounts in a few years and get some satisfaction that I actually achieved the wealth rather than be handed it.  I'd appreciate the value of it much more too.  Smiley

    We ain't got no sand in Tennessee so naturally the odds would be much better here.

        Here in Florida, the Lotto game is about 23 million to 1.

        Take a grain of sand and paint it red. Set aside.

        A cup of sand holds about 3 million grains of sand. Put about 7.5  cups of sand in a clear plastic bag. (7.5 X 3 million = 22.5 million grains of sand)

          Now take that one grain of sand you painted red and throw it in the bag. Shake the bag well for a few seconds.

        All you have to do now is blindfold yourself and pick the red grain of sand.

        The PB is about 195 million to 1.

        For this experiment you'll need a bag with 65 cups of sand.

            Thank you for a moment of clarity.

            How refreshing, I almost forgot clarity existed.
