Long Odds

Two great truths are that everything except a contradiction has a non-zero probability of happening and truth is stranger than fiction. In that vein, there is the unemployed mortgage worker who won the lottery twice in one week and the 14 year old German boy who was hit by a meteorite and survived. As proof that I'm a geek, I'm still not sure whether I would rather have the $142,919 lottery winnings or having a scar from a falling meteorite.
