  1. Mathman54’s rules for playing the lottery:
    1) A man should never gamble more than he can stand to lose. Universal #1 rule of gambling and politics.
    2) Statistics cannot tell me what number will win, but it tells me there will be a winner AND the winner will have a lotto ticket. Put another way, the probability of winning without a ticket is 0, the probability of winning with a ticket is nearly 0, but almost infinitely better than no ticket. Buying more than one ticket is a waste of money until you have bought more than half of the available number combinations.
    3) Spending a dollar on a lottery ticket is less of a gamble than spending $10 on a movie ticket. For one dollar I have a chance of winning and I will have days of entertainment thinking about what I will do with the money. With a movie ticket I will almost certainly have lost $10 and at least 1.5 hours of my life wondering why I let myself be talked into seeing this crap.

  2. I like the lottery, and other type of “opt-in” taxes, like vanity car plates. At least this way people want to pay taxes and those who do get to feel like they are getting something back or a chance to get something. If they didn’t get tax money this way, they’d get it another.

  3. “In the 23692040 times this simulation has run, players have won $50208229
    And by won I mean they have won back $50,208,229 of the $23,692,040 they spent (211%).”
    Is it me, or is this person doing a bad job of convincing me that the lottery is bad.
