Fight Against Maturity

He may not be the luckiest man in the UK but he must be close

Stephen Newton just won a share in an £8m National Lottery jackpot. That’s lucky, you say. Well, yes, it is but, according to the Daily Telegraph,  it isn’t the first bit of luck Mr. Newton has had.

In 1998 he was buried for 16 hours under one of the biggest snowslides in UK history and survived.

In 1990 he was missing at sea while on a night sailing exercise when his boat lost its’ sails and was washed ashore 24 hours later.

If you are thinking of buying a lottery ticket you might want to have Mr. Newton rub it for you just for luck.
