THINK MADNESS: 9.2 QUINTILLION TO 1 says the odds of a perfect bracket are 1 in 9,223,372,036,854,775,808, yup that’s 9.2 quintillion to one
You probably have been busy completing your bracket for the March Madness of the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament…analyzing, listening to experts, deciding which mascot was best, anything to complete the picking of winners in the 63 games. WalletHub estimates some 80 million people will fill out a bracket this year:
  • No one has every completed a perfect bracket, picking all 63 games correctly
  • There are 31.6 million seconds in a year, so 9.2 quintillion seconds is just 292 billion years
  • The height of nine quintillion dollar bills stacked on top of one another is equivalent to the distance of going from Earth to Pluto over 60 times
  • There are better odds that a family of four would all get hit by lightning in their lifetime than picking a perfect bracket
