at least according to Mark Twain...

I don't generally play the lottery, but as the chances are now statistically higher for winning something if I play this time (now that the MegaMillions has hit the $200 million mark), so I am seriously thinking about it this time.

If I win, the entire f-list can come with me on a one week tour of Europe... of course I feel a little guilty spending even a dollar on the lottery when there are so many people who have lost everything. Of course if I won, I could give lots of money to disaster relief efforts.

Poll #569072 Should I buy a ticket?

Buy a ticket?

Yes
21(91.3%)
No
1(4.3%)
Why are you asking me?
1(4.3%)


Yeah, I know most boring poll ever...

In general, I view the lottery as a tax on stupid people, but every once in a while it can be fun, as long as you realize that it's not realistic. Thus, I voted yes.

Ditto, I am not pinning my hopes and dreams on it, just indulging in a bit of fancy. I should note that I have only played the lottery one other time in my life (the day I turned 18) and I spent $1 for a scratch off ticket that won $2. Therefore, I am currently up by $1. I figured I would quit wile I was ahead.

But dude $200 million??

I say yes - just because its fun to dream. The money to buy the ticket is worth all the entertainment while you wait to see if you won! :)

I think that is one of the best arguments I have heard yet!
