Thread: Unlucky?

  1. #1

    Default Unlucky?

    Someone sent me this in an email.

    Henry Ziegland thought he had dodged fate. In 1883, he broke off a relationship with his girlfriend who, out of distress, committed suicide.

    The girl's brother was so enraged that he hunted down Ziegland and shot him.

    The brother, believing he had killed Ziegland, then turned his gun on himself and took his own life.

    But Ziegland had not been killed. The bullet, in fact, had only grazed his face and then lodged in a tree. Ziegland surely thought himself a lucky man.

    Some years later, however, Ziegland decided to cut down the large tree, which still had the bullet in it. The task seemed so formidable that he decided to blow it up with a few sticks of dynamite. The explosion propelled the bullet into Ziegland's head, killing him.

    The probability of all of that happening is 0.

    I call BS.

    This story seems to be quoted on a lot of websites as true, but I can't find anything about it being a hoax, not on Snopes or anywhere else.

    I say it's possible. But the chances of that happening are like 1 in a bazillion.

    All the events themselves may be true, but just the part where he is killed by the same bullet makes me wonder. I think he was killed by some other projectile flying as a result of the explosion (stones,splinters, tree falling on him.)

    Easy. Out of luck you win the Lotto the first time, then spend all the prize money on Lotto tickets.. and win again.

    I had a portuguese teacher whose dad won the lottery twice. Once in Mozambique. He then used the money to emigrate to Portugal where he won the lottery again.
