You shouldn't play the lottery. It is a poor tax as millions of persons in poverty purchase lottery tickets out of desperation or addiction, only to lose time after time and collectively waste billions of dollars in the process. It should be eliminated immediately and any funds lost should be made up by further taxing the rich.

If you play the lottery you support the oppressive hand of corrupt government unwilling to progressively tax like it should.

Stop buying tickets and scratch offs. Death to pull tabs.

I dunno, I spend more than 3 dollars a week on things that certainly don't have the potential to get me thousands of percent gains on investment. So in comparison it's not so bad. But gently caress rip opens and anyone who thinks they deserve to waste the time of everyone else in a store by standing at the till for hours at a time.

Given how lottery earnings are used to fund state governments, our culture should see playing the lottery as point of patriotic duty.

all governments all over the world keep a record of all the people who have ever bought a lottery ticket and when earth is about to get hit by a meteor/alien bomb everyone who ever participated will not be allowed on the rocket to mars.All the people who didn't are welcomed aboard and automatically get membership to mensa if they didnt already

Only play the lottery if your coworkers insist on a pool. If they win, you don't want to be the poor bastard that has to show up when everyone else is a millionaire.

They weren't just hull numbers, they were our home addresses. Now the old neighborhood is torn down and gone and all that is left are memories.


I have never bought a ticket or scratch ticket. I was given one once by my boss as a gift and won $200. I quit while I was ahead.

on a rock or something

they should just give little rolls of a single scratch block that either has "monetary amount" or "lose" printed on it, gently caress having to actually scratch everything and check to see if symbols match or whatever

What happens if you win a big lottery, take the lump sum, and leave the US never coming back? Do you not have to pay the taxes?

Why not merge both ideas? Make a list of the 1% and whoever gets the lucky number each week gets his property confiscated and his/her entire family executed.

Years ago there was a big mega millions lotto. Was at work and my boss, leaving early and going by the shop, asked if anyone wanted a ticket. After giving him cash i realized how stupid that was.
He buys 2 tickets, if one them actually won it wouldnt be mine would it.

I've got $50 CASH AMERICAN in my wallet right now. In fives. Why? 'Cuz I won a scratch-off.

The amazing part is I thought I only won $40 and was amazed when the clerk said I won 50. That's how dumb I am! You know? Because smart people don't play the lottery?

This proves that point I think! Or not!?
