Have you ever wondered what the likelihood of being injured during a horseshoes game is, or what the odds are for dying while in a space shuttle? The answer is probably no, but wouldn’t they be fun facts to learn?
The odds of holding a three-of-a-kind in a game of poker is 424:1. Pokerstars, an online poker community, know the risky chances behind the card game all too well, so they made this infographic showing the odds of less common life happenings. Based off of statistics from Shapiro H. Campbell and R. Writes’s book, “The Book Of Odds: From Lightning Strikes To Love At First Sight,” they show the probability of strange incidents to remind their community that anything is possible. These are bizarre but definitely worth knowing, if only for the trivia.
