Forbes – Everyone loves a winner. The massive Powerball jackpot, a record $587.5 million, is all over the news. Officials say two players, one in Missouri and one in Arizona, hit the sequence of six numbers.
The odds of winning were equally staggering, one in more than 175 million. As The Daily Beast points out, you are more likely (actually, much, much more likely) to have identical quadruplets than win the prize. More likely to be killed by a vending machine. Even dying in an asteroid apocalypse.
