According to this infographic on the NPR website, the odds of you existing are close to 10 to the power of 2,685,000, making you a total improbability.

Think about yourself.
You are here because...
Your dad met your mom.
Then your dad and mom conceived you.
So a particular egg in your mom
Joined a particular sperm from your dad
Which could only happen because not one of your direct ancestors, going all the way back to the beginning of life itself, died before passing on his or her genes...
So what are the chances of you happening?
Of you being here?

When mummy said you were special, she wasn't kidding.
