I didn't win the Lotto last night eithrer. Well, I got one number right and it was a "Mega" which means I get $1. THe interesting thing is that each person in the huge population who buys these tickets stands in the crossroads of two entirely incompatible views.   They know the statistical odds are one in 147 million that they will win the Big Tamale. ut at the same time they know that it COULD happen, and HAS happened for SOME people, so why not them?   In the endless war between Magic and Math, it is human nature to keep one ear cocked toward Magic.
