The odds of the average person being struck by lightning in their lifetime are about 0.000083%.
That works out to roughly 1 in 12,000. These happen to be the same odds as finding a pearl in an oyster.
If you’ve never heard of Roy Cleveland Sullivan … you might be in for quite a shock (pardon the pun).
Mr. Sullivan was a US Park Ranger at Shenandoah National Park in Virginia.
Between the years of 1942 and 1977, he had the unfortunate luck of being struck by lightning – an unprecedented, 7 separate times!
While he survived every lightning strike … he sadly met his demise by virtue of a self-inflicted gun-shot wound.
What does this have to do with Match and Fable’s latest role?
That said … if you fit the profile for Jordana Matsos’ current mandate … you may have just caught ‘lightning in a bottle’!
