"Men's Health" magazine ranked the 100 towns based on their LUCK.  Sure, this sounds like a pretty difficult thing to calculate, but looking at this formula they made proves that they at least had a good foundation to base it upon.

  • People who've won lottery jackpots
  • Publishers Clearing House sweepstakes
