Comment Re:if i win big (Score 1) 89

The GP says the odds of you winning the lottery, not the odds of someone winning the lottery. If the person he is quoting is correct, and I won't even pretend to know whether he is, each year there must be a small number of planetary systems in the Universe 'lucky' enough to get a visit from a passing neutron star. I'm not saying the odds of winning the lottery are big, but I personally would be surprised if the odds of death by neutron star in our lifetime is anywhere near the odds of winning the 6/49. But I like the analogy a lot.

Nature always sides with the hidden flaw.
