The list of all the 'rarities' of the Grb170817a event is at first sight amazing or extremely lucky. It is the nearest, the weakest one, the first correlated to GWs, the first NS NS event, the first Grb tracked not by X-Rays but by optical telescopes, maybe the first Black Hole birth. Are all these extreme coincidences too lucky to be acceptable? A new off-axis Grb Jet morphology and the same rare data may offer an acceptable scenario.
