Arnold's five lottery wins in a row were calculated as one chance in 3,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000.

Arguments between those who thought him certain to win tonight's jackpot and those who declared it mathematically impossible ended when Arnold announced he was skip­ping tonight's draw but had a ticket for tomorrow night.

Next morning, when Arnold opened his mail he found that his maiden aunt had sent him a present, a lottery ticket for last night's draw. All agog, he checked it against the winning numbers. Unbelievably, he had won again! And can you guess who ended up winning tonight's jackpot? Arnold maybe?
