This week, the majority seemed to think that scratch-off lottery tickets were a waste of money.
Until last week, I'm pretty sure that I would have agreed. But then the $50 worth of lottery tickets earned me $58 in cash. That is a net gain of 16% -- which is a pretty good rate of return. So, now I'm convinced that they're really just a waste of time. I don't see how people can get addicted to anything that boring and monotonous -- or, for that matter, how people think scratch-offs are all that much fun.
Anyway, the new poll is up. Vote here.
