Banana Don’s Slice Of Americana – “Never Tell Me The Odds”
Alright! A chance to use a Star Wars quote!
From “The Empire Strikes Back”, we get this famous piece of dialogue:
C-3PO: “Sir, the possibility of successfully navigating an asteroid field is approximately 3,720 to 1″.
Han Solo: “Never tell me the odds.”
Well, that goes DOUBLE FOR ME!! Because it’s just been announced that if you can put together a PERFECT NCAA basketball tourney bracket this spring, Warren Buffett will hand you…… 1 BILLION dollars! Check it out here.
Oh, yeah – you really want the odds on that? 1 in 9.2 QUINTILLION!
Or about the same odds as getting hit by lightning, as you jumped to avoid getting hit by a meteor – which hit and then burned up your winning Powerball lottery ticket.
But at least you got a chance.
Warren Buffett says, “I’ll have them waste so much time at work on their brackets, that taking over their companies will be child’s play! BWAHAHAHA!!”
