Good Lottery Numbers

The lottery is a tax on stupidity, since the expected value of a ticket is so low. So I don't imagine many readers of this blog buy lottery tickets.

But if you are betting, may I suggest these numbers: 84, 60, 53, 51, 43, 36 and 32.

Those would be Bush's poll ratings around the time of each State of the Union address.

    I prefer to think of the lottery as a tax on hope, given that lottery ticket purchases tend to concentrate in poor and working class neighborhoods.

    Lotto numbers in FL do not go that high.

    It would have to be Power Ball to have numbers in that range.

    Did anyone actually watch Bush? I sort of vaguely watched him miming on mute out of the corner of my eye for 3 seconds. The idea of listening to that Bushian drawl dishing the usual BS was too much to stomach.

    I don’t think lotteries anywhere on this planet include 84 as a possible number. I quit smoking cigarettes in 1978 when cigarettes cost 65 cents a pack, and I drink only an occasional beer. Therefore, I can buy an occasional lottery ticket without stress. However, I do have a bad book habit (thank god for public libraries).
