i doubt 1 in 58480 actually saw this graph, so a complete math fail.

I am all for the study of improbable physics. And a cup of really hot tea to act as a Brownian motion sequencer.

I hardly see how coming across this post could be considered "lucky". I think he meant "uncommon" or something.

@apk892 Don`t be nasty to Gerry, he`s important here. Also, you must have missed that day of 1st grade logic class, because you`re dead wrong. According to Merriam Webster, "lucky" means "having good luck." That is also the definition I`ve always understood. Say a deer runs in front of your car, causing an accident, which causes the car to catch fire. Unlikely, right? If someone reported that to you, would you say, "Wow, that was lucky"? I hope not, because that would make no sense. By the way, Merriam-Webster has 4 other definition, but they all relate to GOOD luck, so that`s unimportant. Before you decide to be a d!ck about something, you should, y`know, try to make sure you`re right. Or just don`t be a d!ck.

I just calculated the odds of picking 5 numbers correctly in a lottery with 50 numbers possible, no repeats, as 1 in 2,118,760. Those odds (of winning a 5 number lottery) are WAY worse than the 1 in 58,480 they list here.

@gerry1of1 dude thats just a dumb statement. i hope you were kidding, but just in case, if the odds of something good happening arent good but it still happens, thats good luck. if the odds of something bad happening are bad and it happens, however, that is bad luck. i hope you enjoyed my lesson in 1st grade logic.

The same odds as getting hit by lightening but that doesn`t make you LUCKY does it?

Well, that`s if I randomly looked at images by having some website pull them from the entire internet at random, like some kind of random image dispenser. But since I regularly visit I-A-B, it isn`t random at all that I viewed this particular image, and my odds are actually quite high.
