It turns out that the chances of becoming rich are almost equal to the chances of implausible events happening in someone’s life. The chance of you being born in a billionaire family is almost just as big as you being hit by an asteroid. You can try to start dating a millionaire (or billionaire). Or learn poker and get a royal flush at the World Series of Poker. Or, if this sounds too hard and too much work, you can just win the lottery!
