One of the biggest deterrents to playing the lottery is the realization that one is far more likely to be struck by lightning than hitting the lotto.

Well, check this out ...

Some dude in Canada by the name of Peter McCathie got struck by lightning when he was 14 years old during a vacation while he was swimming. Mr. McCathie is now in his 40s and just hit a million dollar lottery jackpot.

What's even more bizarre, his daughter was ALSO struck by lightning!

A mathematician calculated the probability of all three of those events occurring to the same person and came up with the jaw-dropping number of 1 in 2.6 TRILLION!

Oh, McCathie is also the owner of the store he bought winning ticket along with a co-worker so he'll get a $10,000 bonus for that, too!

Fukeneh, indeed.
