So the Powerball is now at $500 million- great time to play, right? Time to break apart that piggy bank and whip out your life savings to bet it all?
Do yourself a favor; take that 20 bucks and wipe your ass with it- you’ll get more use out of it that way than using it to play the lottery.
Unless, of course, you’re an idiot. Then you should definitely play the lottery with the intention of winning. Sure, someone may win- which also is not guaranteed- but it won’t be you. How can I say this with such confidence? Because the chances of you winning are about the same as me growing an extra 3 inches before lunch.
What are your chances of winning the lottery? 1 out of 176,000,000. What are your chances of dying in a plane crash? 1 out of 10,000,000.
What are your chances of dying on any given day- depending on several variables- anywhere from 1 out 15,000 to 1 out of 100,000. So what really are the chances of you winning the lottery? NONE.
