Thanks Maryland and Kansas. As if I needed anymore of a reason to hate Maryland more than I do now.

Nice avatar and whatever you call beneath it.

Pynchon's greatest accomplishment was to lend his name to one of the best blurbs to occur on like 40 different texts.

Everything with Phillip K. Dick's name on it:

"The working man's Pynchon."

It's hard to believe Christians are talking about gambling during Great Lent.  St. Paisios of the Holy Mountain was right aftera all.
Right about what?

I don't know if people are already doing this now, like giving up their life savings or selling their items just to get tickets, but could you honestly imagine if this lottery swells to a billion?

I mean think about how many people would put their own lives at risk just to get that kind of a prize.

Yeah, you'd be surprised. I know folks who work in low paying jobs like housekeeping and dietary who spend a couple of hundred bucks a week on lottery tickets. The other day at the grocery store i saw someone buy $100 of the scratchers at once. i knew a clerical person who took a credit card cash advance to buy tickets. wow.
If such people use their money so foolishly when they have a little, does anyone honestly think that a huge windfall, such as winning the Mega Millions, is going to make them suddenly much wiser?

It won't. A significant number of lotto winners are broke within 5 years.

It goes for happiness too: from the poorest groups to the richest, the statistical difference is less than 2% on happiness (I just saw this data again Saturday).  Miserable poor people make miserable (and it would seem to follow, misery) rich people.

Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth
