Ok, this is crazy. Maybe a little too crazy...
Back in 2017, Mark Clark scratched off a lottery ticket, won a cool $4 million, immediately retired, and spent his time fishing with his father.
Three years later, Clark won ANOTHER $4 million using a coin his late-father gave him.
“I scratched the ticket off in the store with a coin my dad gave me about 10 years ago. We lost him about a year ago after some health struggles, and I can’t help but think maybe that lucky coin helped me win this...
You don’t think you’ll win millions once, and you definitely never think it would happen twice. It’s hard to put into words exactly what I am feeling."
Shock? Disbelief? Immense gratitude for being insanely lucky? Or maybe it's fear he's feeling? Fear that he sold his soul to the devil in a past life and, while the present payout may be awesome, he'll pay the price in the next life.
I mean, what the fuck are the odds of someone winning millions on a scratch-off once? Maybe 1 in 4 million? Now throw in a repeat win of the exact same amount just 3 years later and what are you left with? A near impossibility that makes you wonder if this is the work of satan himself.
It's prob not, though. I'm sure Clark is just a really good person who deserves double portions of this really good thing. We're just so used to seeing bad things happen to good people that we get suspicious when the extraordinary occurs.
Well, not today. Today we're viewing his story for what it is: an inspirational reminder that gambling sometimes does pay off.
That's the world I want to live in.
