    I wonder what the odds are of picking a perfect bracket?

    Okay I got Michigan State beating Arizona in the final. When I win a billion dollars I'm gonna buy me an island and start my own country.

    You'll likely be struck by lightning a million times before you pick the entire tourney correctly.

    In all likelihood, no one will win and Quicken Loans will have hundreds of thousands of free business leads from the morgauge questioner you have to fill out to sign up. I tried to sign up but the site wouldn't let me pick the teams. The whole thing is a scam.

    Think I recall them saying the odds were 1 in a quintillion (million, billion, trillon, quardrillion, quintillion.) So he's not exactly giving it away. And if it winds up having to, finding the universe's luckiest human ever is worth it. Hire that person. :)
