About the same odds as getting hit by a piece of falling space junk. Or of the Reds trailing the Yankees 15-0 with two outs in the bottom of the 9th of game 7 of the World Series, then proceeding to hit four consecutive grand slams to win.
I prefer the e-trade baby's odds - You are more likely to be attacked by a polar bear and a regular bear on the same day. Always makes me laugh.
