Basically don't buy them. It amused me that whet the National Lottery started there were lots of books on "How To Win The Lottery" (surprisingly there are still lots of books on this, who buys them?) and I've heard people talk about about how to win at scratch cards. Jordan Ellenberg wrote a book called "How Not To Be Wrong" and it contains a chapter on how to win on certain lotteries where there is a trickle down if the main jackpot is not won, but this requires a sizeable dedicated team and a lot of money to crack it. Remember that for each person to win £5 million on the National Lottery more than 2.5 million people have to lose, yes you might win, but it is not very likely is it.
Today it is hot but raining and thing is in some ways that's not a great thing , because the water falls then because of the heat in evaporates filling the clouds with more water to rain down on us. The benefit is we don't have to water the garden but is a definite symptom of global warming.
Been listening to a lot of vinyl this morning while relaxing , Boston, Bowie , Brubeck and Split Enz , the laser etched disks still amaze me (on my instagram feed here), and the first side of the Boston album is close to perfect, I should really play the second side sometime, but it is twenty minutes of vinyl perfection.
So what should I share with you, I think we'll go with the best football song ever, "England's Irie" by Black Grape for the chorus lines:
"I live in a land of class hypocrisy,
We're going to win the National Lottery,
E I Adio, I don't think so"
Don't you think so?
