I'm a very simple man with basic understanding of mathematics and theory. This question has bugged me for the last few years, ever since I learned about lottery tickets.
When I talk with people about lottery they say:
You can't win because it's like 1 in 25,000,000 chance.
You can't win because chances are astronomical.
Stuff like that.
However you hear every day in the news that someone has won
$100,000,000 or similar somewhere in the world.
How is that possible? Why would the lottery wouldn't work for me when I buy it, but yet it works for someone else? Why wouldn't I be the person who wins the lottery?
This seems like the biggest unsolved paradox of modern mathematics/quantum theory.
