The probability of creating the perfect March Madness bracket is shockingly low _ as in less than1 in 9.2 quintillion (or 9,223,372,036,854,775,808) chance.

Jeff Bergen, a mathematics professor at DePaul University, crunched the numbers and discovered that it was nearly impossible to create the winningest bracket.

"The size of the number astounds people," he said. "It's just not going to happen." It's more likely that the Chicago Cubs and the Chicago White Sox will win the next 16 World Series games, he said.

“I can’t lie,” tweeted Carter-Williams after hearing about the trade to Milwaukee.

A heartfelt Jon Stewart closed an episode of “The Daily Show” on Feb. 10 in an unsuspecting way. The audience, unaware of what was about to happen, sat on the edge of their seats in anticipation, and later became sad as Stewart announced that he will be stepping down from the show after 17 years.

Nearly half of those that did were deficient either in technology or content, or both, according to the study by marketing firm Princeton Partners.
