Alex Grossman lies to his kids about their secret origin.

One day his kids will thank him for this. Or just never speak to him again.

Why not just to tell the kids their pillow is evil? Far more effective.


JERUSALEM, Oct. 18 (UPI) — Israeli statisticians said a lottery draw with the same numbers as a recent draw, only reversed, was a one in 4 trillion occurrence. The numbers from Saturday’s lottery draw — 36, 33, 32, 26, 14, 13 — matched the numbers from a Sept. 21 lottery pull with the numbers reversed, reported Monday.

“We are in the business of luck, and when it comes to chances and probabilities anything is possible, even the rare and infrequent, like in this case,” said Dr. Chaim Melamed, the statistics expert for Miphal HaPayis, Israel’s gambling organization.

Yes, I’d say that a 1 in 4 trillion chance is “rare and infrequent”…actually, I’d say the fact that it also occurred only weeks apart signals the coming of the apocalypse and is fucking insanely weird, but each to their own descriptions.
