 ‘You've got to ask yourself one question. Do I feel lucky? Well, do ya, punk?’ (Don Siegal, "Dirty Harry").

What are the odds he will miss? Makes me wonder about the Corona virus. What are the odds you won't get it? Let's start with other probabilities that people are more familiar with.

    Odds of picking all the numbers in a pick six Lottery:         1 in 15,000,000

    Odds of dying from Lightning Strike:                                   1 in 138,849

    Odds of dying from Accidental Gun Discharge:                   1 in 8,571

    Odds of dying in a Motor-Vehicle Crash:                              1 in 107 

    Odds of dying from Cancer:                                                  1 in 7


Odds of Unvaccinated catching Covid: 1 in 10  (the Odds)

Odds of Dying from Covid if infected: 1 in 150  (Chances)

Still feel lucky? If your answer is still yes, you might want to rethink that trip to Vegas. Unless you are already in the Hospital.
