Why wax philosophic over the damned lottery anyway. You have as much chance of being bitten by a shark while being struck by lightning than winning the powerball. Here’s a thought (I actually did this once), get a jar, any jar and make it accessible. Now every week put in five dollars. At the end of the year, voila! You’re \$1800 richer! You won your own lottery. now you can blow it on the ponies, the slots or take a vacation.

For every complex problem there is a solution that is simple, obvious,.... and just plain wrong

Well I’ll be damned, brain fart. I meant a day not a week. I did actually do it to prove a point to a friend but only once! And BTW, I rounded it down.

Nah Occam, rum doesn’t cost that much! Of course it doesn’t take me three months to drain a bottle either.

Lottery is the religion for those that don’t understand probability. All that is required if faith.

Human beings, who are almost unique in having the ability to learn from the experience of others, are also remarkable for their apparent disinclination to do so.
