If you have ever bought a lottery ticket, if you have ever contemplated buying a lottery ticket, consider that you are being
taxed to dream
Which you used to claim helped fund worthwhile arts and recreation activities (building and maintaining hockey rinks) and now you justify (rationalize) as a mental health measure in the face of wage labour (made bearable by by-passing the daily dejection by basking in some future hope) and therefore worth the cost. But then again you consider it could be an opiate.
And so for day 1495
