the odds

I've been playing the Powerball twice a week for almost a year in an effort to recoup the financial loss of divorce.  I've taken a write-off on the emotional loss.  Not once have I matched even one number of the Powerball lottery.  Not one number!  Not ever!  The odds of winning the lottery are 100 million to one.  The odds of never matching a number are probably 200 million to one.  So if I'm lucky enough never to match even one number, I have twice as much luck as I need to win the lottery.
