since u cant read english that isnt written by genius professors like urself, let me rephrase it:

A man won the lottery, and while crossing the street to cash it in, he was hit by a car and killed. Lucky, or unlucky?

Thanks for that.
He's unlucky cos he doesn't get to spend any of his cash!

Unlucky, as he can't spend the cash. Money can't buy you everything, especially a life.

Well....

Wouldn't you compare the probability of being hit by a car with the chances of winning the lottery, to decipher how far he was luckier than unlucky?

Odds of being killed in a car crash: 1 in 5,000 (NOT SURE ABOUT THIS)
