Woman who won Texas lottery 4 times has a PhD in statistics from Stanford:
First, she won $5.4 million, then a decade later, she won $2 million, then two years later $3 million and in the summer of 2010, she hit a $10 million jackpot.

The odds of this has been calculated at one in eighteen septillion and luck like this could only come once every quadrillion years...
I'm sure the article author said, "Finally -- I get to use the word 'septillion' in a news story!"
