Every day I'll post a strange fact on this thread.

Others can add facts as well.

I'll start off: Did you know you have a better chance of being crushed by a vending machine than winning the lottery?

@myhand: no, it's a true fact, 11 people are killed in the United States by vending machines every year, and that doesn't account for global fatalities. (Look it up). Less people win the lottery than get crushed by vending machines.

How big's the lottery?

Terrible movie deaths only started in the last 50 years. (I mean seriously, look at a classic movie, the villain always dies in an awesome way).

Exactly why i challenge it.
The chance to win the lottery at least in germany (6 out of 49) is about 1 to around 14 million. The USA has around 320 million inhabitants. They all take part in the "Get killed by a vendor machine lottery". With 11 people getting killed its about 1 to 30 million, making winning the lottery double as likely, as getting killed by a vendor machine.

^Actually, males can.

An old belief in some Indian bits is that someone dies when a baby is born (though a baby isn't born every time someone dies).

And indirectly, taking care of the baby may bring stress up, which can you give a heart attack.
