Whats the luckiest you've ever gotten?

Don't over think it. Luckiest you've ever been. I mean statistically speaking, so not like I'm lucky I met my gf or I'm lucky to have a cat ect.

Help us keep this site organized and clean. Thanks!

  • A few years ago I bought a box of Lucky Charms and the box was almost all marshmallows with barely any of the plain cereal pieces. It was so good! For some reason it turned my milk green. XD

  • One time I went to walmart and when I opened my door and looked down I saw a big bag of crack. I took it home where it sat for months while I tried to sell it. Eventually I got bored one day and smoked it.

  • Oh! I also won third prize in a sweepstakes and won one of the first DVD players in existence back when they were like alien technology and about to hit the market for around $1,000 each, but the odds were never disclosed.

  • An IQ as high as or higher than mine is 1 in 7,013,455. It sounds a bit less impressive when one considers that it only puts me in the top 1,074 people in the world though. That said, I feel it's mostly made my life worse, but it's a fairly remarkable statistic I suppose.

    I also beat 250 million in a race to an egg when I was a sperm cell.

    • 5 sigma? Dude, that's fucked up. Steven Hawking was 4.6667 sigma above the mean. I doubt the test could be very accurate at that level anyway.

      BTW, I squeaked into Mensa with a 132. Being at this level, I consider myself to have a loser's attitude for even participating here at IIN. But hey, I'm tired of being a winner. It took too much work.

      • I knew Hawking personally, but not well. He was an incredible entity.

        Yes; scores above 160 require specialized high-range tests which are less accurate.

        • Dude. That's an honor. Wow.

          Btw, I've been reviewing that paper he coauthored with Hertog about space existing before time. The inference to long gravitational wavelength possibly being measurablable with yet to be invented interferometers is intriguing.

  • I haven't ever really won anything, but I was born with a hole in my heart, and it grew shut. So at least I didn't have to have surgery as a child.

      • Guess I had surgery when I was about 5, had a 60% chance of living. Don't really remember too much of it though.

      • February 6, 2013

        "A recently completed aerial survey of moose in northeastern Minnesota indicates the rate of population decline has accelerated dramatically.

        The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR) announced today that the northeast population declined 35 percent from last year. Since 2010, the moose population has declined 52 percent.

        In response to the survey results, the DNR will not open a 2013 state moose hunting season or consider opening future seasons unless the population recovers."

          • as a resident yalls oddsa drawin a permit are 10 times higher than mine and yall gots bonus points for successive years without drawin a permit so every resident should git a permit

            yall can take a moose away from a flatlander if yallre persistent in enterin the lottery

            the hunts not very sportin either

            yall drives round loggin roads till you spot one and its like shootin a cow in a field

            the logisticsa cleanin and loadin an animal that size is another story and its hundredsa poundsa great clean lean meat

            i figures all in it costs about 4 or 5 bucks a pound

            • I’ve never put in for it, I’ve tried hunting but never really got into it. It’s lottery enough traveling to work everyday without running into one of these.

              Last year I kept seeing this same moose just hanging out near the road on my way home from work. Freaked me out thought it was a haunted tree at first.

              I not long after had 3 deer pretty much cut me off so they could run down the road in front of me. I wish I got a video of it but before I could they stopped off to go up a hill. Didn’t even use their blinkers like some assholes. The amount of times I slam my breaks on for these fuckers.

    • If I were I guy I'd use a condom every time! I usually figure the more someone insists that I can trust them the less trustworthy the person actually is.

      • True. I mean looking back, I didn't need to take that risk with her. I was new to sex and soI instinctively wanted vaginal where I cummed inside her. And I don't like the feel of condomns so I asked if she was on birth control. Now its been a really long time since I've cummed inside a woman. I usually put on a condom while I plow her vag and then pull out, take off the condom and finish with a bj.

          • I am quite thankful to be alive and fully intact, but I secretly wished that i had lost a leg to become part biconical/ robot. (Glad it didnt happen) but I did break a ton of bones.

            I like to think of these accidents as Karma telling me to “go fuck myself”

  • I bought a house and in 7 years it doubled in value. Big win!! Sold it, paid back the bank and bought an apartment mortgage free with some left over. Another time I was walking down the street one day and I looked down to see $500 blowing along the footpath in $50 notes.

      • My house increasing in value was a much bigger win. Where I live you cant buy a house for under 1.5 mill and the 1.5 mill ones are dumps.

  • One time I was drunk and my girlfriend was sober and just off work and I asked her to drive me to the convenience store for more beer.

    She reluctantly abliged and bought a Florida lotto ticket. We hit 5 out of 6 numbers and won $5,500. 6 of 6 would have been $9million. We spent that money on a cruise, paying off credit card debts and giving nice Christmas gifts.

    I felt lucky I didn't have to walk or drive that 1/4 mile to the store.

  • Unprotected sex at an early age.
    He was THE ONE.
    then he wasnt.
    I was late, he was really uncool about everything.
    Then, I got my period, just a little late.
    I learned a valuable lesson.
    Not becoming a single mom at 12.
    Thats the luckiest Thing.
    My mom is catholic, so an abortion would have been a problem.
