Playing the Lottery

Plinky asked, “Do you ever pur­chase lot­tery tick­ets? Have you ever won?”


I don’t ever pur­chase them — nev­er have, can’t imag­ine that I ever will. I agree with who­ev­er called them “a tax on peo­ple who are bad at math.” I read some­where that in one of the recent lot­ter­ies that reached some huge award amount, each play­er had a bet­ter chance of being elect­ed pres­i­dent of the Unit­ed States than of win­ning. I don’t know how valid that sta­tis­tic was, hon­est­ly, but it was amusing.

Obvi­ous­ly, since I’ve nev­er played, I’ve nev­er won. I don’t know any­body who has won more than a very small amount, maybe $50 — nev­er enough to cov­er the cost of all the lot­tery tick­ets they’ve pur­chased over time.
