Even with the odds at 9.2 quintillion to 1 thats means we still have a chance.

But then we have to consider other odds also:

10 million to 1 of being killed by lightning.
300 million to 1of a shark attack.
250 million to 1 of being killed by a falling coconut.
685,000 to 1 of drowning in the bath.
4.4 million to one of a left handed person being killed using a right-handed product.


If we can just get by all those I think we have a good chance for the 1 $billion.

The only thing a basketball court is good for is to hold up a wrestling mat.

I saw this on the am news this morn. I don't play brackets and have no idea the odds but My first thought was they must be so astronomically hi that he can insure the bet at Lloyd s for about $10.

I'm pretty sure the odds are better on someone living FOREVER than getting every single game correct in the NCAA tournament pool.

@Coralreefer

I work for Quicken Loans, the company sponsoring this. We haven't launched the site so everyone can sign up yet. More on that will be coming.

That's Great News. This should keep our Fearless Leader busy for a while and away from the Screw Up America buttons
