The Morbid Odds Of Winning Powerball

You’re more likely to be legally executed than win the jackpot. Sorry!

1. Bad news. You’re probably not going to win the Powerball jackpot. The odds are just bad. Like really bad. Like:

2. You’re more likely to be seriously injured by a chainsaw.

3. Or die in an asteroid apocalypse,

5. catch tuberculosis,

6. be legally put to death,

7. go to the ER with a pogo stick injury,

8. be bitten or crushed by a reptile,

9. be killed by a pit bull,

10. die in a bathtub,

11. or, if you’re left-handed, die from using a right-handed product.

12. You’re even more likely to be killed by a vending machine,

13. or die after falling off a ladder.

14. On the bright side, you’re more likely to win Powerball than die in a fairground accident or by falling coconut.

15. Then again, you’re also more likely to win than live to be 116.
