    In days gone by that would mean it hardly ever happens, but today with
    factories producing at such a rate one in a million can happen every day.

    How many times have you come across a one in a million.

    Your odds of getting a specific penny or that 5 card hand in poker you just got are significantly less than 1 in a million.
