What bad luck!

     So, it's a rainy day.  You're late for whatever it is you happen to be in a hurry to get to, you're stuck in traffic, and now on top of everything, you've spilled your coffee on yourself.  How unlucky are you?  No, really, how unlucky are you?  Surely you've said it before, but have you ever taken the time to really consider it?  Well, lets see.  You've managed to spill coffee on yourself so, presumably, you had money to buy coffee.  You're stuck in traffic, but to be stuck in traffic implies that you're fortunate enough to have a car to use.  In order to be in a hurry to get somewhere, you must have woken up this morning; in order to wake up this morning you must have been born; in order to be born, you're parent's must have met and conceived you; in order for your parents to have met, they must each have family roots that extend back as far as you can trace; in order to have a family roots, life must have come into existence on the earth; in order for life to start on earth, the solar system must have formed just as it did; in order for the solar system to form just as it did, all the particles of milky way must have come together just as they did to form the galaxy; and in order for the milky way to come together, the universe had to start exactly how, and when it did.  Now, how unlucky were you to be able to spill your coffee?

Have an unlucky day.
