I have often heard people say that the odds of winning the lottery are similar to the odd of being hit by lightning. But indeed it is far, far easier to be hit by lightning!
In Canada the odds of being hit by lightning in a given year are about 1 in 250,000, and in your lifetime about 1 in 5,000. Your odds of being killed
by lightning are 1 in 3,300,000.
Oddly enough, men have an 86% higher chance of being hit by lightning (job hazards, recreational choices), so be careful out there!
BTW, it is much more likely that you will date a supermodel than be hit by lightning -- only 1 in 89,000 odds there!
Of course winning the lottery would probably lower the supermodel odds considerably!
Let's hope the lottery stikes us before the lightning does
