Your Likelihood Of Winning The Lottery—Adorably Explained With Fruit
The visualization you never knew you needed
When Sunday night rolls around and you’re prepping for that Monday grind once again, how often do you wander off on the imagination journey of “If I won the lottery I would…”
Well, not to be to be a downer, but your chances of taking home that sweet prize are really, really slim. You’ve probably heard a statistic along the lines of, “It’s a one in 292 million chance,” but that feels about as tangible as actually being able to wrap your brain around winning $265 million dollars. It’s all just numbers. Really huge, really impressive and really hollow numbers.
But what if you weren’t just looking at a bunch of digits? What if it you were looking at… Bananas? That doesn’t make any sense to you right now, but if you watch the video above it will all come together. And once you do you’ll finally have a visual reference point for your odds of winning the lottery as illustrated by billions of pieces of fruit wrapping around the world and then stretching to the moon. Trust us. This is all totally rational.
So come, Mr. Tally Man, and tally me 2,922,011,338 bananas! And while he tallies keep starching that shirt for tomorrow morning. Odds are you’re gonna need it.
