According to the CDC, you are 30,000 times more likely to experience a bathroom injury than to win the Mega Millions jackpot. The National Weather Service also reports that you are 250 times more likely to be struck by lightning than to win the lottery. Then again, if you think of it another way, the odds don’t seem so bad: Are you more likely to win the lottery or be born? The truth is that the odds of your own existence are lower than the odds of winning the lottery. The odds of this exact version of you being born are around 1 in 400 trillion. That means that your own birth equates to winning the Mega Millions jackpot 1.33 million times! So maybe you really are pretty lucky.
