Powerball is the Work of the Devil

Okay, now that I have your attention… Let me just say that the Powerball is the work of the devil.

Powerball phenomenon has captured this country’s time, attention and in some cases intelligence. Everyone is running out to stand in line to buy tickets, planning their “I’m rich b**ch quit speech” and how they are going to help folks once they win. Why? We all know that the odds of winning are one in 292 million.

That’s one in freaking 292 million! 

Let me give it to you further…

Because mathematically the odds aren’t in your favor and you won’t be able to solve poverty no matter who says so. See this picture circulating on Facebook? People are literally trying to justify the need for the Powerball.

By giving you “mathematical” reasoning on how we could end poverty. Don’t fall for it people! Still not convinced that you can end poverty with the Powerball winnings? Then you my friend need to go back to school. Why?

You may get close in your number choices and think “Please Sweet Baby Jesus” just let me win. You won’t. You will look down at your ticket and think dang “I was close”

But, you can dream right? There’s nothing wrong with dreaming of winning.

Oh-please-Godlet

If you should choose to partake of this mania, do so with a positive attitude…

Whew! Ya’ll taking this too seriously. So, look at your losing ticket and calmly stare at it for hours trying to rationalize your loss…

Accept it and move on. But, before you do…PLEASE make sure you delete your “I quit because I’m rich b**ch” text or video that you planned to send to your boss tonight.

  1. It’s nice to dream, right? lol. The person who made that viral post about ending poverty…*facepalm* So sad. I don’t play the lottery. I think I’ve done it twice in the past decade. But… I joined the hype and spent $4 on tickets last night. Someone’s gotta win eventually haha. 1 in 292 million chance. Wow. That’s insane lol

  2. I usually don’t play…but I held out until they reached my price. Any jackpot with a B (as in billion) is around my price. I know I probably have no chance to win, but who knows? It could happen. All the same, the alarm clock is set for the usual time.
