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.

The trouble with a lot of self-made men is that they worship their creator.
