The smart folks over at Business Insider ran the numbers, and they ain’t pretty. Buying lottery tickets is such a colossal waste of time that you may as well just burn the cash at home instead of heading to the store to buy them — it would be quicker.

But, as the saying goes, you can’t win if you don’t play. Here’s a list of events (that we definitely didn’t make up) that are more likely to happen than winning the Powerball.

Don’t say we didn’t warn you.

  • Have an IQ higher than a really smart guy like Stephen Hawking or someone like that – (1 out of 107 million)
  • Give birth to an octopus, even without the help of fertility treatments – (1 in 729,000)
  • Be killed by an asteroid strike because Bruce Willis and Ben Affleck failed to blow it up before it collided with Earth – (1 in 700,000)
  • Becoming a billionaire, playboy-philanthropist who is also an alcoholic like Tony Stark from the Marvel movies – (1 in 575,097)
  • Be killed by a lightning strike and then get super electric powers – (1 in 164,968)
  • Die by drowning before Aquaman can rescue you – (1 in 1,113)
  • Be struck by lightning, while drowning – (1 in 183 million)
