Yeah. That's it in a nutshell. Society lets the downtrodden get so far behind the eight-ball, that they're hanging on by a thread. So, rather than addressing the underlying problem, we provide a slim prospect of a fine and dandy future. It just strikes me as terribly cynical. Most guys here, it won't make or break them if they don't win. But there are IMO many people who only hang on, knowing there's a statistical possibility they might win. Otherwise, theyRenting hope. Which can help you cope with reality.
And if you control your hopes in buying 'em and win, the few bucks you spend are the best material gamble you could ever make.
I think I get it now. It's smart as long as we buy the winning ticket. Will the clerk tell me which one the winning ticket is?Yeah, it’s stupid. Unless you win,
And the somebodies who win big usually have no clue about to manage it — or they wouldn't have bought the ticket in the first place. And it's gone God-knows-where.and somebody always does.
Wasting money is smart?Unless you truly can’t afford it, or have a gambling addiction I think it’s dumb not to take a shot at riches now and then.
But you still think we should try it? We thought you liked us!To be fair, I’ll admit that I’ve known people who . . . have essentially ruined their lives. It’s not a thing I truly understand, but I know it’s real.
Same here.I've made it to 70 without ever buying a lottery ticket. Don't see any reason to change. As career military I gambled enough with my life.
