So, just to get this straight, you honestly think spending money on a 1/150M chance to win ~$20M is a smart thing to do?
Who said it was a "good investment"? Not I. You originally made the comment that people who play the lottery are lacking in financial savvy, or words to that effect, yes? Now, for the last time (and you question MY ability to own and operate a computer? I'd say your ability to comprehend written english is what's seriously in question here), the answer is YES, I honestly think that spending money on a 1/150M chance to win ~$20M is a smart thing to do, and apparently, Im not alone. Me and 200 million other folks are wrong, but YOU're right? What are the odds of that? You're the math prodigy, you tell me!
