What are the odds?

Thanks to Katey for sending me a link to this interesting page of odds.

Among the most interesting I thought, was that I have a better chance of being possessed by Satan (7,000 to 1) than I have of dating a super model (88,000 to 1). Ouch!

Go there now.

How do they calculate the possession one? I would assume your chances of possession by a fictional character are somewhat lower than your chances of dating a supermodel? {GB}

I'm going to call in to question the whole methodology here. Let's assume you have a 1 in 7000 chance of dating a super model. Doesn't that mean there's a 1:7000 ratio of "you"s to supermodels? 5 billion people means there's got to be almost 3/4 of a million supermodels?? Where does this paradise exist?

Awe...that's no fun! LOL. True its mostly bogus. Odds are different to each individual. Brad Pitt for example has super models attracted to him, so his odds would be reversed (1 to 7000?) :-)

Ahh I got it the wrong way round anyway - 88,000 to 1 to date a supermodel. This reduces the number of supermodels to closer to 60,000. Still way too high! But yeah, it's a fun page. :-)

I wonder if my odds of dating a supermodel would increase if I were posessed by satan while being struck by lightning as my house was flattened by a meteor.

Odds of striking it rich on Antiques Roadshow: 60,000 to 1. wait.. what? I'd like to talk to the person who calculated those odds.
