I can't imagine that any instrument in existence could ever measure the odds against me winning a lottery, much less a Powerball. People who don't believe in luck, after being with me for a while, usually end up admitting 'boy, you have lousy luck.' In all my life, the only thing I've ever won was a crappy table centerpiece at a ministry association Christmas dinner. And it took me 40 years to win that.
BTW, interesting aside. Ever notice there are words that you are completely aware of, but when the time comes to spell them you realize you have no clue how to do it? Since the word yacht is not, as a general rule, part of my daily conversations, I had to finally google the closest thing to the word I could come up with before finally getting Google to spell it for me.
