Powerball Probability

If you win the Powerball jackpot today, there are a few things you should know. After beating the 1 in 175 million odds, you have an 11 in 175 million chance of being killed in your car after collecting the winnings. If you survive that, you have a 327,250 to 175 million chance of being robbed of those winnings, and a 805,000 to 175 million chance that new mansion will go up in flames, according to Eve Waltermaurer, associate professor of sociology at State University of New York at New Paltz.

Probability is a bitch some times. (From the Poughkeepsie Journal)
