If we can’t say stuff like AIDS or world hunger or something like that, I would have to pick those groups of factory workers with no teeth and poor personal hygiene who always win huge lottery jackpots. Why can’t a nice middle class, educated couple or individual win one of those? [/quote]
Because people who get how shitty the odds really are tend to play less often?[/quote]
You gotta think of a lottery ticket not as a chance to win, but as a ticket to dream about winning. A dollar for some nice daydreams seems like a good deal, especially since a dollar can’t get you much of anything concrete.
