I 241
Probability/Chance/Lottery/Lotto/Frith: E.g. the chance to win in the British National Lottery is 1 to 14 million. This chance is much less than the chance to die before the end of the next weekly draw.
How soon before the draw would you have to buy a lottery ticket so that the chance to win is the same as the mortality risk? Three and a half minutes.
