What are the odds?

I haven't had a papercut in years but just the other day I managed to get three. Two guys in my school had never been stung but they both got stung on the same day.

What's the odds of that? :/

Share your unfortunate tales.

    I managed to cut the middle of my nail with a razor....it fucking bled everywhere. Big white patch in centre of nail now. Moral of the story....do not throw razors on bed after shaving legs.

    I got stung by a wasp in the exact same place on both my 6th and 7th birthdays.

    Truth.

    the more you want something not to happen = the greater the probability that it will = my experience of life :D

    Ooooh something like that happened to me. Two summers in a row I flung myself down onto the same bean bag and was stung in the same leg by a wasp, don't think it was the same wasp.

    It's not about anyone getting hurt, but think about this:
    My birthday is on the 16th of September. My mum's birthday is on the 1st of August.
    My cousin has the same birthday as me. She had a baby a few years back, can you guess which day he was born on?
    Yes, the 1st of August. What are the odds of THAT??

    Don't try to be smart. I mean the odds of the whole situation.
