Ok...everyone loves a possibility of winning the big jackpot, but every time it's mentioned on the news or in conversations with friends that old pesky "odds of winning" topic comes up.  I think we all know it's an extreme longshot to win any lottery like the  Power Ball or Mega Millions that covers the entire United States of America. This is why sometimes I'll just play the Texas Lotto thinking my odds are better, but still it's a longshot. However, somebody has to win -why not you?! Well, to put things in perspective the sports betting site Bookies.com broke down the odds as compared to events/accomplishments real life.  I don't know if this is depressing or just eye-opening. However, us positive dreamers are now quoting Lloyd Christmas from "Dumb and Dumber" - "So you're saying there's a chance..."
