Much as I would love to tell all my Cyburbia friends that I won the big Mega Millions Lotto......no dice.
A crisp quarter of a billion dollars $$$$$$$$ was won at a small carryout just a little bit northwest of me, here in now-affluent Fulton County, OH. The little town of Lyons, OH just has a couple small businesses, including a carryout, a pizza place, and a great restaurant, The Lyon's Den. The magic ducat was sold at the carryout.
Katie and I almost bought a house in Lyons, a few years ago. "I coulda been somebody." Three (3) of my employees live in Lyons (or in the farm areas very near Lyons). But, alas.....they were all at the workplace today and not showering everybody with crisp one-hundred (100) dollar $$$$$$$ bills.
I do play the lotto......whenever it is relatively large. There is no logic to that type of thinking. You could probably argue that there is no logic to ever playing a game with such a long-shot chance of winning.
