Top 10 Odds of Things that are Near Impossible

The Top Ten

1 Shuffling the same deck of 52 Cards And getting the exact same order twice. (1 in 80 unvigintillion)

This seems pretty mundane but think about it there are 52 cards and getting them in the same order twice is just insane. There’s more card combinations than atoms in the universe. So shuffle a deck of cards and that order is probably unique and will never be seen again.

How many zeros would that be?

Aah yes, the classic.

2 Being killed by a falling Satellite (1 in 28 trillion)

I feel like this is a mostly theoretically probability if this has never happened before you can’t really know how unlikely it is.

I don’t even know if this has happened but I mean do satellites even fall from orbit? It seems almost impossible that you wouldn’t even consider it

Just imagine you're walking through and a random Satellite hits and kills.

That's quite far-fetched.

3 Having a perfect March Madness bracket (1 in 128 Billion

This is so unlikely it may never happen ever. You’d have to be incredibly lucky or somehow rig the games which would only lead to more trouble than its worth. So yeah fill out as many brackets as you want because you’ll never be perfect

You would need a time machine to do it.

4 Odds of passing a 100 question multiple choice exam by guessing on every question (1 in 750 trillion)

Moral of the story here. Study for your tests kids. Otherwise if you haven’t studied for that upcoming exam then yeah good luck numbers don’t lie

This seems much more likely though than most of these. As long as you study, it shouldn't be a problem.

Well that depends on how many questions there are.

5 Getting Killed by a Terrorist in the US (1 in 4 Million)

Statistically speaking terrorist attacks are rather rare they tend to happen out of nowhere though which is what makes them scary

That's surprising. I thought the odds were higher than that.

Well it's most often only in the cities as well.

Oh. Wow that’s low.

6 Getting killed by an asteroid (1 in 74,817,000)

Asteroid impacts are rather rare but not uncommon for asteroids to enter the atmosphere the thing is they almost always burn up in the atmosphere and rarely make it to the ground

7 Getting eaten by a Shark (1 in 8 Million)

This happens occasionally but as long as you don’t have any open wounds and don’t ignore safety regulations you should be fine.

Happens regularly in Australia

Um that’s surprisingly low.

Like Userguy said, it’s not that rare when you’re in Australia.

8 Being in an Airplane crash (1 in 11 Million)

While it does happen it’s rare so rest assured that you can feel safe on your next flight. Unless it’s some abnormal circumstances overall the likelihood is so small you should barely have to worry at all

Yet airplanes turn me off

9 Winning the McDonald's Monopoly game. (1 in 450 Million)

This seems so unlikely why bother playing? But I mean it actually does happen so... why not? You never know

10 Winning the Powerball Lottery (1 in 292 million)

I made a list of things more likely than this but yeah it’s pretty incredibly unlikely to happen. Gamble at your own risk
