    I especially like that last quote. It reminds me of all the political noise we are currently being subjected to here in the US. Unfortunately, it's going to get even worse as we draw near to November 2020.

    Ambrose Bierce Quotes (Author of An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge)

    “Lottery: A tax on people who are bad at math.”
    A couple "side-thought's" to this. Ambrose Bierce passed away in 1914 (105 years ago)...and he was commenting on how lottery's were a "Tax on people who were bad at math."

    * Just goes to show that all of the various lottery's run by various governments around the world that lottery's are nothing new (not a new/newish phenomenon).
    * We would think that in the last (at least) 105 years...that the average person's math skills would have improved (due to the overall better/more available education around the world). But lots & lots of "educated" folks still play the lottery regularly...and they all think/hope they will be "the one" to win!
