I'm too young to retire on $1 million, but it would be a definite life changer, so I'll choose red.

Red for me too. It almost never fails for me when there's a 50/50 chance of anything, I always pick the wrong one. Oh wait, does that mean that red is the wrong choice for me?

See?

A little known fact about statistics: If there is a 50/50 chance of something happening, the less desirable outcome will occur 90% of the time. Counter-intuitive I know, but I believe all of us can site examples of this important statistical truth.

Remember you won't get a million. The gummint will get better than a third of it! Can't retire on that!
