175 million to 1

So everybody's got their panties in a bunch about tonight's $500 million+ Powerball jackpot.

175 million to 1 odds you'll win.

What are the odds? I wonder what are the odds of other things happening that are better than 175 million to 1?

--Odds are better that the Bucks will win the NBA title this season.

--Odds are better that Honey Boo Boo will be made into an Oscar-winning movie.

--Odds are better that people will pick cauliflower over french fries.

--Odds are better that Ozzie Osborne will start making sense some day.

--Odds are better that Angus T. Jones will be back on Two and a Half Men next year.

--Odds are better that Bob Salm will ever retire.

--Odds are better that Joe Biden won't put his foot into his mouth ever again.

--Odds are better that Kim Kardashian will simply fade away.

--Odds are better that Lindsay Lohan will never be arrested again.

--Odds are better that O.J. will find the real killer.

...you get the idea.
