And finally… lightning strikes twice


A Canadian man is making the most of his unlikely life after winning the lottery - decades after he was struck by lightning in a Nova Scotia lake.

The odds of experiencing both events in a lifetime has been estimated at one in 2.6 trillion.

The unlikely odds seem to extend to his friends and family; he won the lottery in a ticket jointly bought with co-worker Diana Miller, while his daughter has also survived a lightning strike.

Peter McCathie collected a total of $1 million in the lottery, which he says he’ll use to take his wife on a second honeymoon.
