I don't qualify for the stupid tax, no. If you know you're not going to win, why not spend the money on something else? And if you think you're going to win, you're just delusional.

You're delusional. You don't buy a lottery assuming you'll win, you buy it assuming that you have a chance of winning, because you do.

And I don't do lottery.

No because:

-The chances are so small it's not a smart investment. pretty much guaranteed to loose.
-It redistributes wealth, taking from everyone and giving it to a few.
-It reinforces the attitude that you aren't happy with what you have, i.e. reinforces a lack of contentment.
-Often the worst affected people group of gabbling are the poorest.
- There is one guaranteed winner, the lottery.

-There are many horror stories from the winners. Many of them end up broke very quickly.

Every week.

My dad did it his entire life. It just becomes normal routine: "It's Thursday. Today after work I have to take in the trash, get dinner, and buy a lottery ticket."

I think the appeal of the lottery depends on what type of environment you come from.

And seriously, its 1 dollar. Most of you aren't even old enough to buy one, UG.

>implying it's $1 everywhere

Still, buying a lotto ticket isn't as bad as blowing your savings at Blackjack in a Casino or blowing your whole paycheck or whatever. It's not really hard gambling, in the sense of losing a ton of money.

It can't be much more than that elsewhere, the whole point of it is minimal investment, maximum gain.

1 Dollar in Kansas, the only place that matters.

This. It can be a positive motivation just as much as it can be a negative.
