That pretty much sums up the times

I admit it. I play the lottery. Yeah, it’s stupid. Yeah, it’s a waste of two dollars a week. Yeah, I could spend that $104 on one really nice dinner a year. But, it’s something I’ve done on and off for the last 15 years and as far as dumb vices go, I rate it pretty low. Plus, I’m a sucker for the “what if…” factor that they prey upon all us suckers with.
Lately, as the economy is truly way deep down, stuck up on the second bend of the crapper, it appears that I’m not the only person getting a hit of Lottocaine twice a week. Right after the draw, they post the numbers on the website. This in turn means that you see the image below for about two hours after the draw. There really isn’t anything wrong with the website except for the fact that a couple million people are hitting it at once. Obviously, “what if…” has devolved in to “dammit please…” these days. Not a good sign. Not at all.
