Civic Duty

I did my civic duty today.

I paid $2 in voluntary taxes in exchange for slim chances at big money. One Mega Millions ticket (drawing tonight, odds of 1:175,711,536 for the big payout of $31,000,000 before more taxes) and one Lotto ticket (drawing tomorrow night, odds of 1:6,991,908 for the big payout of $8,900,000 before more taxes).

I didn't vote, though, and don't plan to. The odds are even worse in that arena.

Don’t cut off your nose to spite your face.

It's nothing to do with spite. Just simple economics on the personal scale.

And, of course, I got bupkis.
