In 1980 Edwin E. Robinson was struck by lightning in his yard. At the time he was blind, partially deaf and bald. After being struck, he acquired his vision and hearing back, and started to regrow hair as well. And it wasn't even 7/7/07. In honor of this week's unusually auspicious date, we'll bring you stories of really good fortune, like the woman who won a million dollars in the lottery, twice.
