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, Ynetnews.com 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.
