Worse odds than you thought

Not only is a state-run lottery a tax on people who don't understand math... the state's cut is even better when there's literally no chance of winning.

Let's see, we have to have the state running the lottery because the private sector will run corrupt, crooked games that prey on the foolish and poorly-educated... While, of course, state-run lotteries are always above board and scrupulously fair.

Riiiight. Tell me another one.
