Just two days left!!  The odds are unbeatable!

These are better odds than (using our trusty Google search):

-  18' 4" or LESS of snow in Toronto in the winter

- Getting in a car accident at some point in your life (if you're a driver)

- City of Folsom being flooded without a further height in the Folsom dam (adding 40 years to the equation)

- Selecting an ace from a pack of cards, twice!

Better start planning on what to do with your new Mac Book Air!!

I won a beagle at the State Fair when I was 5. I haven't won anything else in the ensuing 52 years.

Nevertheless, my 16 entries out of 191K are, as you indicate, pretty good odds.

Denise, with 191,000 entries, you'll almost surely win it! Wink

The odds of selecting two aces from a deck (without replacement, which is harder) is 4/52 * 3/51 = 1/221 ~ 0.45%

16 out of 191k is ~ 0.008%

Still, excellent odds! I'll have to settle for slightly lower odds than the rest since I don't have a Facebook account.

In the end, Prov 16:33

Unfortunately you have to be a US resident to be eligible. Sad

The odds are not in my favor, but someone has to win it. Might as well be me. Smile
