Share The One-In-A-Million Fact That Blows Your Mind

How did these things actually happen?!?!

Some things are the definition of probable: like me hitting the snooze button in the morning.

But then there are other, rarer things that are the definition of improbable...or even the definition of really, really, REALLY freaking improbable.

For example, former Oakland A's slugger Khris Davis hit exactly .247 every year for four consecutive seasons (2015–18).

In 2002, 51-year-old electrician Mike McDermott won the lotto TWICE in one year...and to make things even more improbable...he did it both times using the same numbers!

Michigan couple Jay and Kateri Schwandt had 14 sons in a row before they finally had a daughter. Back when they only had 12 sons, one expert put the odds of having 12 consecutive sons at one in a million.

And here's one more highly improbable happening...in 1898, 14 years before the sinking of the Titanic, author Morgan Robertson wrote a book about a huge, supposedly unsinkable British passenger liner that hit an iceberg during an April journey across the North Atlantic and suffered mass deaths because of an insufficient amount of life boats.
