15 Things More Likely To Happen Than Winning The Mega Millions Lottery
The Mega Millions jackpot has grown to $540 million, and people across America are dying to score the lucky ticket. According to lottery officials, the odds of winning the massive prize are about 1 in 176 million. Despite the excitement, those odds are not good. In fact, there are many other things—good and bad—that are much more likely to happen to a person than winning that money. From landing dream jobs to unfortunate demises, The Daily Beast lists much more likely occurrences.
Death by Vending Machine
Odds: 1 in 112 million
On average, two people in the U.S. are crushed to death underneath vending machines each year. Please snack responsibly.
Dying in an Airline-Related Terrorist Attack
Odds: 1 in 25 million
No one has died in an airplane-related terrorist attack since 9/11. The pat-downs of elderly people and toddlers are really paying off.
Having Identical Quadruplets
Odds: 1 in 15 million
Identical quadruplets would be adorable, but you wouldn’t be able to support them because you probably won’t win the lottery…
Odds: 1 in 10 million
Mitt Romney has seen these odds and he likes them.
Dying From Bee, Hornet, or Wasp Stings
Odds: 1 in 6.1 million
Who knew bees were so scary? Then again, bees may not be as much of an issue this year.
Dying From Being Left-Handed
Odds: 1 in 4.4 million
It’s a right-handed world. Apparently, a fair number of left-handed people die each year from using right-handed products incorrectly.
Becoming a Movie Star
Odds: 1 in 1,505,000
There’s more than one way to make money in this world, and movie stardom is a better bet than playing the lottery.
Dying in a Plane Crash
Odds: 1 in 1 million
If you are too scared to board a plane, why did you just buy a lottery ticket?
