@jamilworm: True, the 4-leaf clover is on a 'per clover basis`. I`ve found several over the decades

True, Antiques Roadshow just estimates the value, but finding out your big ugly painting is worth $400K = rich!
It really depends on what they consider "get rich" eh? 5K? 50K?? 100K???

Yeah this is kinda dumb because the event parameters aren't clear. Obviously the lotto one is only IF you buy a ticket, so an average person`s odds of winning are much less. For the clover - is it the odds of finding one in your lifetime, or the odds that if you pick one it will be four leafed?

Also correct me if I`m wrong but odds of getting rich at Antique Roadshow = 0. They don`t actually buy your antiques from you they just tell you what they are worth.

@Incubus_Inc: No. An 'asteroid` is any rock in outer space. Any rock that hits the Earth`s atmosphere is a `meteor` and if it hits the ground it`s a `meteorite`.

Note: Comets are completely different.

They forgot:Yarborough Which is a term from the card game Bridge. 1,827:1

What comes after vigintillion or do we just say 80,658 vigintillion?

(haha, spellchecker doesn't even know that word).

Corydoras - I would think that asteroid implies that the object strikes at near full size, otherwise wouldn't it be meteoroid?
