People often have a completely irrational understanding of what the odds are of an event happening to them. Typically, the worse the outcome, the greater the perceived probability of a horrible ending. In reality, the likelihood of dying in a plane crash is extraordinarily low yet. However, people board planes with sweaty palms fearing for their lives. The old codgers, nary a gambler among them, accurately assess the odds of winning the mega millions lottery—save your money since it’s one in 302 million odds. Led by Randy, the senior citizens of Camp Codger take some wild-ass guesses at the odds of getting struck by lightning, living to 100, and leaving a baseball stadium with a foul ball. Life is full of long shots as the old codgers discover.
