Why, the RC5 prize money, of course!

I'm certain to win any day now.

If I'm interpreting the stats right:

(my probability of winning in any given day) = (probabilty of "this
participant will find the key before anyone else does") * (probability of
"that we will wrap this thing up in the next 24 hours")

A typical day:
1/5,863,376,223 = 1/15,341 * 1/382,203

There it is in black and white!  Statistics never lie!
