Occurring On A Daily Basis

It seems like every event you can think of has a statistic that tells you how often it happens. And more often than not, it happens every single day. Somebody being born, somebody dying, car crashes, alcohol poisoning, somebody losing their home. Some things end up being surprising to find that they happen so often.

The one thing to keep in mind is that there are seven billion people on earth. With such a massive population, it should be expected that even unlikely events occur on a daily basis. 

With that said, the smaller the population you're looking at, the more surprising it becomes. If something like getting struck by lightning starts happening on a daily basis, and it takes place amongst a group of twenty people, now you've got a mystery on your hands (perhaps one you can turn into a compling story by trying to solve).
