A:  A Miracle!

A mathematician named John Littlewood wrote a book called “A Mathematician’s Miscelleny” that was published in 1986 . . . nine years after he died.

In the book, he tried to figure out the probability of seeing a miracle occur. He defined a miracle as being anything that has a one-in-a-million chance of happening.

John assumed that you’d be awake, alert, and able to notice a miracle at least eight hours every day. He also assumed a miracle could happen ANY SECOND.

It would take about 35 eight-hour days for a million seconds to go by . . . which means that EVERY person should see at least one miracle every month or so.
