Many folks play the lotteries faithfully even though they seldom win.
While it would be technically correct to label these people morons
on account of them doing the same thing over and over while
expecting different results, their sheer numbers keep any
of them from twigging onto the fact that what they are
actually buying is a wee, tiny bit of hope that today
will be THE day that everything will turn out
exactly like the lottery commission says
it might and then we will experience the joy of futility affecting change.
Thank you, friend.
Peter Poutine my arse. These people KNEW we would find out!
