you do believe in miracles, if you play the lottery.
recently reading that the price of powerball tickets will shortly increase, i thought, why did it take them so long to raise prices.
for a long time, i've thought that the various lotteries are mainly a tax on poor people.
is there anything sadder than walking into a convenience store and find sometimes buying and buying and buying tickets.
lottery managers want poor people thinking they'll be rich overnight. the odds are that they may win 40% back, until they use the winnings to buy more tickets. what's 405 of 40%?
being rich without the ability to manage it is pretty much like being poor. many who win big quickly just as suddenly lose it.
i think of lottery salesmenm the same way as i do bartenders offering an alcoholic another drink.
just between you and i me, the lottery folks want people addicted to gambling. they are actually selling snake oil.
healthy folks don't buy snake oil; sick folks do.
