    UPS has delivered over 30 billion packages over the past 100 plus years and this is a first for a brown bomber to get hit by a plane.

    I hear ya. However, how many planes go down and of that, the likelihood of getting hit by one? Sucks all around.

    It was a 10 sigma event, meaning it is 10 standard deviations and it is Gaussian; unless the information came from God, you can reject the Gaussian distribution for that domain. It is a true one of event statically. (for a UPS driver)

    Reason for edit: needed to add (for a UPS driver) for clarity.
